Oh good Lord. http://abcnews.go.com/US/video-shows...ry?id=20419705

Is there any question that the driver of the SUV felt like his life was in danger?

I'm glad I don't live in NYC. We don't have that kind of couchebaggery here. (yet)
I don't blame the SUV driver for wanting to get the hell outta there, but I wonder what went on before the start of the video, it seems the "brake checker" was having words with the range rover right from the beginning of the video, maybe the range rover pulled some of his own asshattery and got what he deserved??
Hard to say without having been there.
People need to calm down a bit and stop taking themselves so seriously, Everyon's a badass these days, it's ridiculous.

my first impression? what are these dick-head bikers doing ALL over the road and lanes? From a car driver's perspective, the bikes are all over the lanes, crossing lanes all over the place, three to four bikes per lane, bikes crowding the cars, my initial thought was these are a bunch of little boys on bicycles with no regard for other road users.

Drivers in Sri Lanka, or Bangkok or Caracas may be accustomed to this kind of traffic, but not US drivers. Two bikes side by side per lane, in your own lane is at most reasonable in tight traffic. Its confusing for car drivers with bikes swarming all around them, so something like what happened is a result of it.

You ride like dick-heads you better be ready to answer for it.

That said, the SUV driver was wrong to leave the scene, but given the numbers can you blame them? The end was flat out assault/battery.

Right of Weight. It Is and has always been the rule of the road to live by.

This was caused and is the fault of some of the arrogant pissant riders.

The guy that broke out the window would be dead if he did that to just about anyone I know. That is easily an imminent defense of life scenario.

I agree , but if none of them were smart enough to get his tag , then they certainly didn't want him to get away. I think the SUV driver escalated it in the first place.

Did you see any bicycles? If you thought you did, I'm not sure we can believe anything you say that you see.

Because usually it's the other way around--the little boys are the ones dressed up in big bad trucks and SUVs, going around without regard for others, swinging their little hitch balls and trying to intimidate smaller vehicles. This is probably why someone else suggested maybe the SUV driver started it: because this type of shithead driver is well-known. However, it's also true that these MC gangs' patterns of behavior are also well-known. Personally, I'd have disengaged immediately and exited, expecting the douchebags to stop traffic and perform stunts in front of the 5 stopped lanes of cars (last episode in STL).

Watch it to the end and you'll see that the RR driver knew that getting out of his SUV with all those bozos are around would not end well. What a bunch of twatwaffles those riders were. My vote, bikers wrong, driver right.

Twatwaffle? My favorite new term.

I would say everyone involved in that fiasco is equally wrong.
