  1. NY DMV COMMISSIONER CALLS TO INATTENTIVE DRIVERS-- It's a new public service announcement which should help motorcyclists be seen.

    Newly appointed New York DMV Commissioner Nancy Naples appears on the sidewalk after a nasty, and quite graphic, car/motorcycle ROW violation, telling viewers, "Motorcycle accidents aren't accidents at all, too many are crashes caused by inattentive drivers who just pull into oncoming traffic with little more than a glance. I'm DMV Commissioner Nancy Naples, asking you to please watch for motorcycles."
