    Why were these people allowed to violate the highway traffic act. They stormed through every traffic light they came on. If they were in an organized group and wished to stay together then they should have had marshals at the intersections. In at least one intersection one of them almost got hit by someone wanting to go through the GREEN light. Also at the intersection I was held up at we sat there for 6 sets of light changes. That is a little excessive. We have places to go too. If they had a marshal (RNC) they could have let them through every other two set of light changes. In my mind that would have been more reasonable. I know they were out on a very worthy cause, but they did not gain too much respect among the people who were held up in the same intersection that I was.

    Wowwow is that your first or last name. I cannot believe that you had somewhere to go on a Saturday that was so important that you had to make such insensitive comments. Obviously you or someone you love has not been touched by cancer. These bikers were showing their support for all those affected by Prostate Cancer and should have been applauded for their deeds not critized. I drove Topsail Road and was in awe of all these bikers and quite proud of them. There was a police presence and as a matter of fact at each street and interesection there was a biker blocking traffic so they did not go through the intersection. So slow down Wowwow you never know what the future may hold for you. Just be grateful you were healthy enough to be held up by by six lights.
