Optical Illusions are amusing.

They make us laugh, especially ones like the mirrors at Funfairs that make your skinny wife look fat and your munter missus look like a rake.

But what about the optical illusions that kill at least, if not fewer, 275 motorcyclists a day on Britains roads.

You know the ones, the optical illusion that makes you think that the speed limit sign says 30mph so there is plenty of time to pull out in front of the approaching motorbike. But he is going 65mph because he wasn't fooled by the optical illusion in the built up area.

Or the optical illusion in the Highway Code that says the speed limit on a motorway is 70mph and you should not overtake on the inside, let alone weave in and out of traffic.
Of course motorbike riders aren't fooled by these optical illusions like car and lorry drivers are and know it is safe for them to ride however they like.

If only car drivers would learn how to see through the optical illusions, many if not all, or at least some, motorbike riders would be able to go faster and more recklessly without having to be killed.

This was a public service announcement brought to you by me.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
