Interesting read. So where are these empty roads again?

I can see both sides of the story here but in the end it is a philosophical issue:

If a motorcyclist crashes on an empty road and there is no one around to witness it then do they make a sound?
I imagine these speeders would probably still be speeding if there was no pandemic, it is just easier to hear, spot and catch them now. Is very sad to hear that the fatalities have doubled in some cases, they do only compare it to last year though, so that could have been a good year vs a bad one rather than an average year?

If a motorcyclist crashes and no one sees, did they really crash? :D

I've actually seen this to some degree here in PA. There are much fewer cars on the road these past few weeks, yet I've also seen some TRULY bad driving too.

Maybe the article is right, drivers are feeling complacent with less traffic to deal with.
