My wife passed a woman today driving on the highway with an ebook propped on her steering wheel.

Its been a while, but I saw someone reading the bible heading down the freeway.



Sat it was 'texting while driving' day. Saw half a dozen of those.

Don't pick a fight with 4000 lbs of rolling steel.

A bike is not a tool for schooling left lane bandits. This rider is an IDIOT!

If you find yourself getting pissed off when you ride YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG!

0:55 is where the action starts.

Wow. I never pick fights with any other road vehicle. But the bike rider really didn't "harass" the car driver THAT much to warrant that sort of response! Must be in some foreign country because that is Manslaughter here in the US.

I think that a lot went on that we didn't see.
Right of way by mass.

Response?! The motorcycle rider brake-checked a vehicle that requires nearly twice the stopping distance. Use the lane markers to count time, the car was slowing down before it hit the motorcycle. The only respondent was physics, and Physics is a harsh mistress.

What makes you think that the rider was killed?

The rider was at fault. You don't do a hard brake check at 70+mph 5 feet ahead of a two ton car. The rider was an idiot.

I spend a lot of time on the road, and nothing pisses me off more than people parked in the left lane.

I normally flash my hazards twice after I get around them. As in, trucker talk for "Thank You."

I passed a car a while back that had a decal on the left rear Window that said something like, "If I'm passing you on the right, you're in the wrong lane!"
I'm having one similar made to put on my car.

Why or how do people watch that video and think the driver rammed the bike?

The bike rider braked hard because he was an ASSHOLE and got run into as a result of his own folly. The video vindicates the driver of any wrong doing other than driving in the left lane.
