That guy on the motorcycle is going to be liable for the injuries to the guy in the truck and really regret his rage.
Gut reaction is to defend the rider because the only times I've wanted to kick a car is when they've done something REALLY stupid that endangered my life... but I guess it is possible that the rider is a huge douche who overreacted to something, we need more info there.Incorrect
It was the driver of the car's reckless retaliation that caused the accident. The kick from the bike didn't cause the car to violently swerve into him, lose control and then strike the SUV in the other lane. The driver of the car did that. He is solely responsible for his own actions. All the motorcyclist is liable for is the quarter panel damage on the car from his boot.
Sorry, but people are responsible for their own damn actions. Motorcyclist should get a ticket for the kick, and the car driver should be jailed for reckless endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon.
People on bikes don't just go around kicking cars all willy nilly. Clearly the car instigated the alternation, which is only further supported by the blind rage the driver had after the biker fought back.
I agree... biker could get a reckless driving ticket for the kick, but the driver decided to try to kill the biker... two totally different scopes of bad behavior.In my opinion, Both are at fault to some degree. The kick is possibly justifiable, if the car was swerving towards him and he kicked in response, well ok maybe, but if he sped up and went after the car, not ok. Ultimately though, the car is the one who caused the wrecks. He was trying to hit the bike. Nothing that rider did forced him to swerve like that. Though the headlines and reporting make it out to be all the bikers fault. Him not stopping definitely doesn't help. Black eye for all of us.
Saddest part is someone not even involved is who ended up hurt. Fortunately they will be ok.
I think it's great, and I hope someone gets me on video when the next cager tries to kill me. You'll recognize me, I'll be the one with the bike and gun.I think that drivers that drive around shooting videos with their cell phone should have their license pulled for at least a year.

At least there was no bike involved - and no injuries apparently.
Agree 100%. I was taught to never, ever start a fight. But if someone else starts it, it's time to go to the mattresses.I think it's great, and I hope someone gets me on video when the next cager tries to kill me. You'll recognize me, I'll be the one with the bike and gun.
The weirdest shit happens in Florida. And the drivers around Miami make LA look tame. LA is aggressive but not wild.That's Miami, Steve. Pretty much everyone in Florida is nuts.:laugh:
I have one of these on order:There are some very nice models, but I didn't want to have a wire on my dash. I think I'll buy one though. It's not a matter of if but when it will be useful.
