    Stupid rubber necking fu.cking retards!!!

    This is the exact type of driver that makes traffic in the first place. Everyone is going smooth for HOURS, then people like this have to stare at someone else`s business on the other side of the street. Eventually everyone has to slow down.

    Guess what ass-holes, its not your business..

    People need to pay attention. Who gives a drat if a cop is arresting someone, or pulling someone over. It`s not like you haven`t seen it a thousand times. Enjoy prison.

    The driver was probably making sure not to hit a cop, and the bicycler was doing the same thing.

    "This is the exact type of driver that makes traffic in the first place."
    How do you know the cyclist didn`t run in front of the car? Bikes are a major hazard the way they ignore stop signs and lights and go shooting acrossed streets.

    "The driver was probably making sure not to hit a cop, and the bicycler was doing the same thing."

    How far away do you have to be before you start looking at the road for road hazards? If it wasnt the car rubbernecking, then it was the cyclist, both are considered drivers. So again that highlights my previous post.

    Oh and Gerry, I didnt see any stop signs or lights beside this cop. I see a dumbassed cyclist and a car full of Mexicans with a WOMAN DRIVER!!!!

    You can hear in the video all the driver does is slam on the brakes. Theres no vehicles in the other direction. But since she was rubbernecking, she didnt take the time to turn and avoid the cyclist, she just slammed on the brakes and continued to go straight.

    Driving in real life is different than video games.

    "Driving in real life is different than video games.
    "

    Oh hey no shhit!!! Are you really trying to suggest that once you apply the breaks that you can never turn the steering wheel? Are you trying to say that because I am driving in real life that my reaction times are somehow lessened as opposed to reacting to something in a video game? Are you trying to make an excuse for this lady that maybe she wasnt paying attention and IRL you cant pay attention to everything?

    What are you really trying to suggest with that comment?

    A cyclist is not equivalent to a driver, simply due to the one sided nature of an accident. Notice how the cop said "driver vs padestrian accident"

    If you can prove the cyclist was at fault, then by all means hate away.

    But in this case, the cyclist has clearly been rear ended and 100% of the blame falls on the driver regardless of if the cyclist was paying attention.

    I think jail would be appropriate. No, wait, that`s wrong. It`s not just my opinion. Jail IS the answer.

    I live in Chicago, so when I`m driving my car I hate Cyclist but when I ride my bike I hate car drivers. There should just be a separate street for bikes, we really do bike like a**holes.

    "But in this case, the cyclist has clearly been rear ended and 100% of the blame falls on the driver regardless of if the cyclist was paying attention. "

    OK first off, even if you a 5 year old on training wheels, if you are riding in the STREET, you are part of traffic ergo a driver.

    I went into this video blaming the car, which I still mostly do. But when you watch it at full screen, you can see that the bike and guy are actually sideways when he comes off the hood. I am thinking this cyclist was riding along, wanted to get away from the wreck and just decided to cross the street RIGHT THEN. No hand signal, no warning.

    The problem is, the driver would have seen the cyclist, had she not been rubbernecking on something that wasnt her business.

    Also dude, a car that hits a motocycle is also one sided, are you saying that he is not a driver?

    If you are in the street, not crosswalk, and on wheels, then you are a driver. This means your old lady hoverrounds, your damn Gyro bikes, Skateboards, bicycles. All of it. If you are in the street, are are driving. Just because you dont steer with a wheel doenst mean its still not a potentially fatal hazard.

    I wouldn`t got that far. You do not see what actually happened during the impact, nor for the preceding moments. Maybe the cyclist drifted into her lane.

    And you can say `drivers should look out for bicyles/motorcycles/skateboarders etc.` all you want. The truth is that the cages are the biggest, deadliest thing on the highway, and if I`m on a bike, I`M going to look out for THEM, too.

    ouch. that looked like it hurt a bit. and a helmet would not have helped any. what would have helped would have been that guy on the bike - should have been closer to the curb and not in the middle of the street like that. a bike is not a car.

    i wonder how hot that street was, i might not keep my head down either.

    I watched when this episode aired. I nearly jumped off the couch I was so surprised! WHAM!

    If the bike shifted into the car`s lane, then yes it`s the bike`s fault. Being on a bike (motor or otherwise) means be careful!

    "If the bike shifted into the car`s lane, then yes it`s the bike`s fault. Being on a bike (motor or otherwise) means be careful!"

    I still blamee this soley on the driver. First off she had to be going fast enough to skid, really listen to how long the skid was. I honestly think the cyclist might have even tried to signal, but the lady was rubbernecking and didnt see him. Then, after applying the brakes you can hear she has enough time to steer away, very very clear, but she continues in a straight line anyway.

    How fast could she have been going cause he gets hit hard. I mean, shes already skidding redicing speed, then the time it took to sskid, THEN he got hit with that much force.

    She could have steered out of the way.

    Steelgrid is right. In the Netherlands (you know, the country of bicycles), cyclists are considered to be driving a vehicle and follow many of the same laws and regulations that motorised vehicles do.

    However, we have fewer problems of this nature because we have separate bicycle paths throughout most of the country.

    Also, this place is crazily flat. I mean, we drive UP to the beach, not down.

    @Steelgrid

    It`s all speculative though. We don`t know the circumstance. I mean, what if the speed limit was 45 and the cyclist was doing 20 when he veered into the other lane? Then skidding like that wouldn`t be out of the question, because if I slam on the brakes at 45, I`ll skid a good 15-20 feet easily in my car.

    Tony did not relax, and then was pepper sprayed, beaten, and handcuffed. Justice was served.
