    Actually, to below, many times it is illegal to ride on the sidewalk. If the road has some extra shoulder space for cars to pass comfortably, you should be in the street.

    The problem is when people start thinking they can break laws, like this idiot in the video did. And I think it`s silly to go into left turn lanes and such. That`s dangerous for both drivers and cyclers.

    But I do like how the guy just agrees with the cycler about how he should have used a crosswalk. :D

    Bicycles are considered vehicles under the law and as such are subject to generally the same rules and regulations, riding on the sidewalk is illegal in many places as driving on it would be. If you don`t like cyclists on the road, too bad. Suck it up and learn to share, whiners.

    But I DO hate road cyclists. When you can pedal at 45 mph, then you share the road. Otherwise, stay on the damn sidewalk!

    Reminds me of then I was a toddler and I got hit my a bike. In an apartment complex. Freaking guy didn`t stop. Asshat.

    At least these guys were kinda cool about it, which is good.

    I`m glad the pedestrian is OK. Bikes are supposed to follow the same rules as cars. If a car were going the wrong way, it would get pulled over in a flash!
    It doesn`t cancel out, one "crime" is far greater than the other, not "equal" (or identical, lolz!)

With a sidewalk thats bigger than an F-ING ROAD he chooses to ride on the road THE WRONG WAY. >=(

    He is recording cause he is playing the DR3K game. He just got 10 points for hitting the pedestrian. if it had been a senior it would have been 1.5x points.. etc etc... he is recording it so he can compare scores with friends later and see how well they did.

    Likewise I hate cyclists who don`t obey the road rules, like they don`t apply to them. Wrong way down one-way streets, completely ignore red lights etc. They complain that they want equal rights on the road, then go on to ABUSE those rights at every given opportunity.

    You know what I`d do if I ran over a cyclist? Reverse.

    Hey CapnAwesome, hate to be `CapnObvious` here but that`s a ONE WAY street... A car couldn`t manage to go the other way because it would have to plow through all the cars he watched go by before he tried to cross.

    davymid--the only reason my motorcyclist friends run red lights is because the light`s weight sensor doesn`t catch them. Once I was riding with my friend and we literally waited 10 minutes at a red light before we carefully looked around and went through.
    However, unless you`re talking about speeding through for other unrelated reasons, that`s different.

    Yeah Feiku, I have no prob with motorcyclists. They`re conscientious road users in my experience, I always try to give them room to overtake, give them as much space as I would a car etc. In fact, a while back I was in my car stuck for about a half-hour behind a slow "sunday driver" on windy roads in the south of France. Behind me was about 5 bikers, all out for a fun drive. When we FINALLY reached a small clear stretch, there was only time for me OR the bikers to overtake. I put on my right indicator to show them that I WASN`T overtaking, please go ahead. They prompty did so, and every single one of them very kindly gave me a wave of thanks on the way past.

    No, what I`m talking about specifically is bicyclists in cities. And not ALL cyclists by any means, but the majority are arseholes in my experience.

    I ride a bike every day to and from work, down a one way street, only because it is the shortest route. But I`ll tell you one thing.... I damn sure won`t be reading anything while I`m riding down a one way street like this guy. That was just dumb going down a one way street and not paying attention. He`s lucky he didn`t run into a car pulling out because he was reading. The biker had plenty of time to stop if he was paying attention.

    Uhm, handys003, Going against traffic is the safest place to be, if there isn`t a sidewalk , for the bicyclist. You can see the cars coming.

    he was going the wrong way, the guy just walked out so they were both being dumb. However, the bald dude accepted it and the cyclist acted like a jerk.

    It`s been a while since my bicycle safety rules days, but if there isn`t a bike lane, aren`t you supposed to go against the flow of traffic, or does that just pertain to 2 way streets?

    Yeah, it was 2 people being dumb, but look at the positive side; it didn`t turn into a violent confrontation between two people, each threatening to sue the other. They shook it off, and carried on with their business. That`s what REAL men do when minor accidents like that happen.

    Not using a crosswalk versus driving backwards on a road... That cyclist is a moron.

    So, it would`ve been okay if a car was going the wrong way and hit someone not in a crosswalk? Ugh--I hate people who don`t follow the rules of the road.

    I cycle and I drive. Most cyclists annoy me when they ignore the rules of the road. Going down one way streets jumping lights etc Or being just plain stupid its like they`re trying to piss off drivers and jump in front of them. but that being said as a driver i always give a wide berth and will wait beofre overtaking if i can`t.

    This guy shouldnt be cycling down a one-way street. In candem its quicker to go straight down a one way street then all around the one way system. I jump off and walk it on pavement for a minute then start cycling on road again. Saves time doesn`t play chicken with cars and doesn`t wreak havoc with pedestrians. This guy is a douche. Who also didn`t let it drop kept saying he should have used a sidewalk man up you were wrong aswell.

    He was going the wrong way, but you`re supposed to go against traffic if you`re on a bike.
    Everybody can see you coming and you don`t have to worry about cars hitting you from behind.
    In that area I wouldn`t bother trying to cross anywhere else but a crosswalk.

    "He was going the wrong way, but you`re supposed to go against traffic if you`re on a bike.

    Actually cyclists are supposed to go with traffic - you`re supposed to go against it when you`re walking. Bike Vs. Car = Pretty nasty head-on. + with both cars and bikes going opposite the pedestrians, then the walkers can just move aside when they see you. Instead of having you ride behind them and ring that dorky bell until they hear you and move aside.

    This only proves my point that society is more and more trying to vie for attention, why exactly is this biker filming his every move? So he can pull something like this post it on youtube. I am now inspired to conform with people and start filming my everyday activities for the off chance that something funny may happen.

    Ironically, he may be filming his bike rides for legal reasons. If he`s a bike messenger, and he gets into a more-serious accident (with a car), he`ll have video footage showing what happened.

    I haven`t gotten into an accident in my car in a long time, but I`ve occasionally thought about putting a camera on the dash, police-car style. When you crash, it`s usually because you`re distracted, and might have trouble remembering the actual details.

    In the eyes of the law, a bike is a car. You can`t ride on the sidewalk as much as you can`t drive on the sidewalk. You have to stop at stop signs, and you can`t got the wrong way down a street. The biker was more at fault.
    This coming from someone who is an avid biker and bikes every day.

    Wow what an AHOLE! You have to follow traffic laws and go with traffic. EVERYONE jaywalks in NYC, and you KNOW that whether you`re in a car or a bike. And then he starts talking crap to the guy he knocks over?! I would have knocked this guy`s lights out.

    Okay the answer to this wasn`t on the first 2 pages of comments, so I`ll just ask it.

    Is not crossing at a proper crossing illegal in New York city? I thought that was just an exaggeration on a basic "don`t be a bother" rule. If it is illegal, is that just a rule for NYC or does it extend to other places too?

    My twopenneth is that if a cyclist hit me like that while cycling the wrong way down a street in Manchester, and wasn`t fully apologetic, I would probably end up breaking his bike chain and leaving him to walk. It`s too bothersome to get the police involved to fine him.

    Yes, it`s called jaywalking. You can be fined for it.

    Pedestrians always have the right of way. And the walker has a blind corner with the van. Clearly expects to only have to look right because anyone coming the other way is in the long lane. Bicyclists must follow the direction of car traffic. Walker should walk the opposite direction of traffic. I do not think its jaywalking as long as you walk at a 90 degree angle to the road when you cross.

    I would have shoved that guy off his bike and kicked him in the head. Really? No cross walk? What a lame F-ing excuse to run someone over with a bike while going the wrong way up a street while carrying a camera. Oh and the guy who asked if the "cyclist" was OK needs to be kicked too.
