A taxi driver got a shock yesterday when he was involved in a collision with a motorcyclist being pursued by cycle cops.

The still shaken Gregory Rice told the MIDWEEK NATION that he was driving along Wharf Road, The City, just before 1 p.m. when the motorcyclist, riding the opposite direction on a one way street and chased by police, ran into the taxi.

Rice said the rider was thrown from his cycle, flipped over his car, landed on the road and darted away on foot shortly after.

“I thought the man was dead,” Rice said, shaking his head.

Spots of blood on Rice’s shirt were tell-tale signs that the motorcyclist suffered some injury. (YB)

“Most drivers have no respect for bikers, and this is something I see  all the time,” said president of the Barbados Motorcycle Club, Raymond Belgrave in Monday's Daily Nation.

I found it necessary to respond to Mr Belgrave under the "Bikers' Cry" article.

If Mr Belgrade puts on his glasses, maybe he will see this kind of irresponsible and reckless behavior on our roads by motorcyclists.

Yes, Mr. Belgrave, I see cyclists damaging automobiles and darting off without stopping to assess whether someone was injured and await the police. Is this the respect fellow motorcyclists show on the roads?

One basic rule of "respect" is not to ride the wrong way on a one-way street!
