Fwd: Do you see the motorcycle?

Where, exactly, is it legal to drive 85 mph on a suburban or city street?

Although the VW driver may have been guilty of distracted driving, it 
probably would have happened even if they were not on the phone. To ask 
anyone to see, recognize and decipher velocity on an object that is 20" wide 
at 400 ft (~ 3 seconds from impact at 85mph) is a tall order.  85 mph 
(125fps) is a ludicrous speed on a street with crossings.  The mc rider was 
clearly guilty of fatal decision making with a side order of stupidity.
