17 mile drive
The most notorious "No motorcycles allowed" road I know of is the 17 mile drive, in and around the Pebble Beach Golf Course in Monterey. Of course, if I paid $17 mil for a house there, I guess I wouldn't want the, "Loud pipes save lives" crowd blowing by my front door either.
3 years ago a blue hair stepped on the gas instead of the brake while waiting in line for the Balboa Island auto ferry on Labor day. She launched her luxomobile into dozens of pedestrians, knocking them into the water of the bay. 22 people hurt, luckily none dead.
And then there was the old guy in Santa Monica who mowed down people at the outdoor market... several dead.
I'm all for retesting... but it should be for every driver over a certain age, regardless of what type of motor vehicle that person chooses to operate.
Keep a high visual horizon,
