But to do this to a family seems rather excessive.

Didn't see that one.

You'd figure if there were a crap ton of you and the guy was willing to talk and admit fault or wait on the police, no biggie. Give em some room to do what needs done there. Crowding and bashing his car wont end well. Didn't in this case. Luckily they didnt kill him in their stupidity.

If a bunch of bikers were screwing with me that way I'd have run over all of them.

A bunch of real sad morons first screwing around in traffic, then executing their mob justice. I wish one of the Klitschko brothers was driving that car.

Wrong tool for the job. A diesel dually Ram with a snow plow would have been better then a Range Rover.

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 friends laugh at me, for having a hatchet tucked on the side of my driver seat...
This is disgusting...

It wasn't even a "brake check", as the brake lamp never illuminated.

The SUV driver kept their vehicle UNDER the speed of the passing cycle drivers.

The IDIOT on the motorcycle should have kept up with the average pace of the OTHER riders on their motorcycles.

The SUV driver was presented with an abnormal amount of vehicles around him, and many of them hitting their own horn button.

As a MC rider and SUV cage driver, I can tell you that if I was in my SUV and this happened to me ... there are going to be a lot of downed MC riders with torn up bikes.

As a MC rider, I can't ever imagine that decelerating like shown in the video in front of an SUV is anything less then my death sentence.

YMMV.

Wouldn't have done any good once he got off on 178th Street. Wonder why he exited there? I would have stayed on the Hudson Parkway. Probably less chance of stopped traffic than 178th or the I95.
