Really sorry to hear this. We all talk about understanding the risks we're taking, wanting to live life fully rather than looking back with regret, etc. But still sobering to hear about something like this.

RIP, brother.

Did this happen in Florida? I'm curious to know where. Red-light running is an epidemic in this State.

Definitely sorry to hear about your friend. This is a good reminder to everyone to slow down going through intersections and always expect people to pull out in front of you. You cant stop idiots from doing dumb things but hopefully, we can all be ready when they do. RIP

Yellow means green in Florida. When we started driving my parents always told us, when the light turns green give it a second or two and I've avoided two or three accidents because of it. It's unreal how bad people are with the lights down there.

It never ceases to amaze me how unaware cage drivers can be on the road.

So sorry for your loss :(
