Marcus Benard, a defensive end for the Cleveland Browns, has pled not guilty to two charges stemming from his October wreck of his Can-Am Spyder. Benard broke his hand and sustained other injuries in the wreck which has ended his 2011-2012 season.
A witness told police that Benard was traveling at “a high rate of speed” before he crossed four lanes of traffic and slammed into a guard rail, where police estimated Benard traveled over 200 feet in the air after impact.
The team has decided it will keep Benard, despite his contract violation which forbids him from sky diving and riding motorcycles. A pre-trial hearing has been set for Nov. 21, 2011.
Entrepreneurs in foreign countries have already been using motorcycles as taxi cabs for years especially in the heavily congested parts of Asia. It’s a trend that never caught on in the US. But now Moto Limos believes American’s are ready and they’ve chosen the two cities with the densest populations, New York and Los Angeles.
Moto Limo hopes to lure the busy business traveler to it’s services by pitching that when others are stuck in traffic, you’ll get to your destination on time. blue Tooth helmets will be provided for productivity and they’ll provide rainsuits during inclimate weather and a blanket for those New York winters.
