|This coin is being released as part of the Todie's Wild Ride Bike Awareness Project initiated by Rockin Roddy in response to the death of his good friend Tod Phillips. On August 12, 2008, Tod was riding a motorcycle when he was killed in an accident caused by a left turning vehicle. Tod was one third of Team Rod & Tod w/KAboom. This coin is released in his memory and in memory of all motorcyclists killed on the road. As part of this coins journey, I would like to collect different tips for drivers to be more aware of motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. Feel free to add any tips you wish to the logs to share with others.|

About This Item
|DO NOT KEEP THIS COIN!
This coin is part of a huge mission to raise awareness of bikes (both motorized and human powered) on the roadways.
This coins purpose is to remind everyone that cars are not toys! Too many people nowadays think that their 2 ton car is just a toy. They drive them like they are invincible and have little regard for other users of the roads. Some drivers think that they will be able to walk away from any accident, no matter how big or how small. Unfortunatley most accidents involve some injuries no matter how big or small. The worst part about the attitude that a car is just a plaything is that usually the driver who think their car is a toy doesn't get hurt very badly, it is the driver of the other car, the motorcycle rider, the bicycle rider, or the pedestrian who gets hurt the worst (and sometimes they even get killed).
So remember when you are out there driving your huge car that it is not a toy, but a large piece of dangerous equipment and that it has the capability of seriously injuring or even killing an innocent person.
If everyone follows this ideal, then everyone should remain safe on todays open roads...
