Wow. That guy was a lot calmer then I would have been. If you rear end someone it's always your fault. What a dick.

The guy might not have been in the wrong legally, but he was riding like an ass I thought. His lane position was crap, he did brake way too early as well IMO, not taking into account what was behind him. Who rides in the kerb???

I treat all accidents on a bike as the riders fault. We should know how to read things before they happen. Doing anything other than this is what cagers do.

the lense is a fish eye, the white car to the left is a lot closer than appears, he was letting the guy have room so he didn't get plowed over from the side, mean while the cop took care of it from the rear

Wow, that cop was way uncool for hasseling the rider. At least he didn't get a ticket.
However, I think that if it had been me and the guy in the white car was hesitating like that I would have given it some throttle and went past him. Afterall, he was trying to change lanes, being indecisive and the rider had right of way in his lane.
Also, why did the cop change lanes and get behind the biker? At the beginning you see the rider pass the cop who's in the left lane.

LVPD is known for ther strong arm tatics and over all asshatness. Not surprising at all this happened. I hope what ever damage done to the bike will be paied for but LVPD. I love how the rider says "I hope he learns his leson, but probably wont". True statment, I bet the LEO is sitting at home still blaming the rider.

He didn't have great control of the bike, but it's really a safety issue. I always move toward one side or the other so that I don't get squished if hit from the rear.

There's a video that was posted about a year ago where the cyclist stopped to the right edge near the line, seconds later an truck slammed into the car to the left of him.

He probably would have been killed if he had stayed directly behind the car.

The same is true with slow traffic, better to be shoved to the side than crushed between cars.


The real issue here is abuse of power. Threatening to write a bunch of tickets? WTF is that?

Did the LVPD act after seeing the rider's video, or did the officer report things. I didn't notice the video from the police car. Let me guess, it was erased.

They claim we are safe because of THEIR camera and they don't like to be recorded, but what would have happened if the rider's video was never seen?

Look at how quick the car hits after the bike stops.

It's AGAINST THE LAW to tailgate, not to mention the danger to other motorists.

Notice how he's more concerned about the behavior of the rider than public safety? He'c more concerned with being in a hurry and "keeping up" How many accidents would be prevented by allowing more space?

The rider didn't have great control of the bike, however this is why we allow space. The officer should have been given a ticket for following at an unsafe distance.

It's difficult to discern the difference between Mafia and Government these days. They both want a piece of your earnings for protection and will kick down your door if you don't pay. Cops are nothing more than henchmen for the lawyers and politicians.

Riding that far to the curb side of the right hand lane invites that type of vehicular activity from the left lane. I always ride toward the center line of a road like that, whether I am in the left or right lane. That way you stay in the mirrors of traffic.

Having said that, there is no excuse for the officer rear ending someone. He's in the wrong, and was pissed at his own actions, so he took it out on the rider. Thought he could walk away with fear tactic and a handshake.

I used to respect most police but the abuses of power are either becoming more prevalent or we're hearing about more of them thanks to the internet. Every profession has it's share of bad apples but very few professions can ruin your life simply because they are having a bad day. I no longer trust any cops and don't talk to them any more than I absolutely have to.
