A 25-year-old man died early Wednesday after the motorcycle he was driving crashed into a traffic sign on the Far Northwest Side.

After midnight, a 25-year-old man driving a motorcycle crashed into a neon arrow traffic control sign at 6142 S. Harlem Ave., a Jefferson Park District lieutenant said.

The man -- identified as Ronald L. Bizeau Jr., 25, -- was pronounced dead at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge at 1:40 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

The police Major Accident Investigation Unit is investigating.

This is another one that needs to be thouroughly investigated. If the arrowboard was placed without proper signage placed at the legally prescribed places and if it was unlit there is some seriuos liability for the agency and/or contractor(s) involved.
Nothing can bring back the unfortunate who hit the sign and it is possible he is the one at fault but if not, those responsible for the gross negligence that cost him his life should not be allowed to get away with it!
Motorcyclists need to be vocal and make sure that those responsible for negligence are held responsible or the negligence will only continue!

And I'll take the other end of that argument and say Darwin might be at work.

Either way RIP.

My friend, there is no argument. If you read my post completely you would see that I concede it could have been the riders fault.
I don't intend to speak ill of the dead here regarding this or any other accident.
There are far too many incidents and accidents that are not the fault of the rider that get overlooked or go uninvestigated and those who neglected to conduct their tasks responsibly or failed to consider the safety of others are never held responsible. To me and hopefully to you and everyone else, that is unacceptable.
If this 25 year old was driving a car this very well likely would have been property damage only. But, a young human life was lost and if someone other than him was responsible or shares the responsibility for this tragic incident, they should be held accountable and answer for that rsponsibility.

I agree entirely that too many accidents are clearly blamed on the rider when in fact many of the factors were either out of or not argali his/hers fault. On the same note I'm sure we can all agree that not everyone who rides a bike should be on one. My comment wasn't intended to slander the dead but to take one side of the argument, not that you presented, that will always rage. Who's fault was it. And the end of the day only this poor fellows family is left to have answer. And fir that god be with them.

I didn't take what you said as a slander to the victim. We're on the same page. We just differ slightly in our perception, I think.
Yes, God be with his family and with us all when we ride.

Please ride safe, everyone.
