A Laredo Police Department officer was transported to the Laredo Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon after he fell off from his bicycle in east Laredo.
A friend who has ties to the police department once told me that the officers who patrol the streets of Laredo on a motorcycle frequently fall. Looking at the units they use, it makes sense. The motorcycles look heavy and prone to accidents if any tricky manuevering is to be done.
I rode a motorcycle to work for several years, day in and day out. Thankfully I never had any spills. I did have a couple of close calls, but for the most part, it was a fun experience. And it gave my wallet a break as I paid about $5 a week for gas.
