A mother in England wanted video released that shows her son’s final moments on a motorcycle. She and other family members hope it will make riders and drivers think about road safety.

In 2013, her 38-year-old son, David, was killed while riding a motorcycle. A camera on David’s helmet showed his journey.

He was traveling at a high rate of speed when a car turned in front of him. “I know he rode fast that day. He loved speed,” his mother said.

She went on to say, “I just hope that somebody benefits from it. That motorists slow down and look before they turn into junctions.”
