    On purpose of course... that bus driver should get jail time for such a move. The cyclist could have been severely injured by the looks of it.

    On the other hand the cyclist probably should have been on the side of the road to begin with, not between the lanes. Anyway we don`t have sound so we don`t know if they were honking at them to move, but in any case that doesn`t justify what happened.

    Guilty. Jail the driver. *hits gavel*

    Totally on purpose. Even if the driver didn`t actually intend to strike the bicyclist, his intention was clearly to menace.

    It appears that the bicyclist was intentionally riding in the center of the lane to annoy the driver. Douchey, but doesn`t justify the action of the person in control of the larger, heavier vehicle.

    Screw the guy on the bike. He was being an ass and trying to make all the traffic wait on him to move down the road at 10 mph. Bikes traffic should be treated like pedestrian traffic: not allowed on the roads.

    No. Roads are for vehicles, footways are for pedestrians. It`s actually illegal to ride a bike on a footway here, as well it should be.

    No, of course we can`t do that...though we`ve all wanted to.
    But the biker is not an "innocent victim". He antagonized the driver, and the driver went too far. I hate the bikes on the roads taking up the whole lane like a car and not caring who they inconvenience or bother. Shooting through stop signs and lights. Bitches.

    BOTH are wrong, driver and rider.

    If you`re on a bike then get the drat out of the way for cars. Not saying he deserved it, but I`m sick of bike riders that think they have the same rights as cars do. If you`re going 7 mph in a 40mph zone...move to the drating sidewalk.

    If you live in the US, which you do by your location, then you`d know that bikes DO have the same rights as cars, whether you like it or not, and it`s enforceable by law.

    If the bicyclist antagonized the driver, the driver should`ve rolled his window up, pulled the bus over without hitting the cyclist, and called the police. Harassment happens to be illegal too, and in this definition, it`s road rage, an arrest-worthy offense in most states.

    I should carry a stick to spear in their tires next time one tries to run me over. I like when they flip over and land on their face.

    I give bikers credit for picking a healthy way to get to work. But many do project a holier-than-thou attitude toward drivers AND pedestrians that doesn`t win bike riders many friends.

    What evidence do we have that the cyclist antagonised the bus driver?

    Don`t we just know that they had a previous "altercation"?

    Surely that means it`s equally possible that it was the bus driver antagonising the cyclist.

    Just a thought.

    If a bike can go the speed limit, fine. If not, the cyclist should be ticketed for impeding the flow of traffic, just like a car could if they did 8 mph in a 40 mph zone.

    Hence the "should be" as opposed to "is".

    Also, It is not illegal to ride on the sidewalk where I live.

    A bus driver in the United Kingdom has been jailed for 17 months for going full Mario Kart on the cyclist pedaling ahead of him. Accidents happen, right? Yeah, this was no accident. This is straight up assault. Fortunately, the judge thought so too.

    Bikes do not have the same rights as cars. Bikes are to stay on the side, not ride down the center. But go ahead, challenge the cars all you want. I`m sure "being in the right" will be a great comfort to your widow.

    Maybe if the dumbass didn`t ride in the middle of the road, then actually have the gaul to move right when being overtaken, the bus driver wouldn`t have put him in his place.

    Bus vs Bike, who will win? certainly not the idiot on the bike.
