There was no one behind him...who would he be signaling? Besides, if I'm getting ready to get thrown off my bike the last thing I do is let go of the handlebars. Course, that's just me...

So, the question becomes... "Did anyone live?"

Car driver was an idiot.... but. Did the rider even try to stop? He didn't seem to be going fast to start with. I never saw the nose of the bike compress, let along the rear wheel in the air. Hell, he barely even turned! More like, fixated on the front of the car, and hit it.


Also... Bike doesn't even look like it was damaged! Car is a fucking wreck.
Besides, if you look you can see the rider takes precious moments looking over at rnickymouse before gazing back to see the Camry in the road. Course, that could just be me...

I'm sure the lat/long was correct, but the city just is wrong. Malibu Lake maybe... but not Malibu. It is about as much Malibu as Hollywood is downtown Los Angeles.

This is why I cant watch TV anymore - Im constantly insulted at the suggested intelligence level of the viewer.

Unfortunately, I would.

It's not "the suggested intelligence level of the viewer"...I think its more like, "the intelligence level of the viewer".

Unfortunately the news isn't much better these days than reading the National Enquirer...Fortunately its not any worse...yet.

Seriously who cares about your geography lesson, while technically correct most people I know refer to it as let's go ride Malibu....yes it's outside the city limits, but it is the hills above Malibu which are unincorporated.

Its just sensationalism - pay it no mind. But also remember, "racing" to a normal person is going above the speed limit. For actual racers its not racing at all
