    This (driver pulling out on 131 by Constantine) happens ALL THE TIME. Every single time I ride through, there is always an idiot that pulls out in front of me. Once I wouldve crashed into him but passed on the right hand side shoulder to avoid death and some stupid state trooper ticketed me for passing on the right. Michigan state police are a disgrace. Prosecute the drivers who fail to yield and MURDER motorcycle riders.
