Do you see the motorcycle?

This was sent to me from a Friend that works for The Department of Public Safety.

Now Do You See It????????

The Honda rider was traveling at such a 'very high speed', his reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident.
Police estimate a speed of 155mph before the bike hit the slow moving car side-on at an intersection.
At that speed, they predicted that the rider's reaction time (once the vehicle came into view) wasn't sufficient enough for him to even apply the brakes.
The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.
The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 10 feet from where the collision took place.
All three involved (two in car and rider) were killed instantly.
This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety Department.
The sign above the display also noted that the motorcycle rider had only recently obtained his license.
At 155 mph the operator is traveling at 227 feet per second.
With normal reaction time of 1.6 seconds the above operator would have traveled over 363 feet (21 yards more than the length of a football field) while making a decision on what actions to take.
Pass this on to new drivers or soon to be new drivers, or new motorcycle owners.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
