Letter: Something should be done about crashes
My brother died Aug. 4, 2005, because a northern Wisconsin motorcycle business didn't properly hook up its enclosed trailer when it was hauling a three-wheeler. Well, it went through his windshield, killing him, leaving behind a wife and two little boys.
Toyota has a recall because at least 40 people died in 10 years, and yet 400 people died in one year the same way my brother did and nobody knows it!
How many families have to go through the pain that my family is still feeling? Please go to www.dangeroustrailers.org and take a look at all the people who have died. Can't something be done?

The facts are the facts...we do not emblish the facts. Please go to our web site and see for yourself....NO STANDARDS ARE IN PLACE FOR ANY TRAILER JUST ONE pound under 3,000 GVWR. No training is required unlike driving a motorcycle.
The insurance industry has figured out that it is still cheaper to pay a $10,000,000 claim then address this issue. They have paid off familes that want to come forward yet need the funds for themselves. The issue is as more familes remain silent to this type of accidents then "others" are going to pay the price.
Why for the past 7 years they have ignored our cause? WHY? How many more need to loose thier lives?
