They both were wrong - the bike for passing on a double yellow after what appears to be a "healthy" pace on the road without so much as a chance for the truck driver to pull over and let them by. And then the truck drivers reaction which is completely inexcusable for trying to force the rider off the road and the ensuing chase...

Just a complete utter disregard for the law and other's safety all around IMHO.

I agree. Both seemed that they felt they "owned the road."


They both should lose their licenses for 6 months. And be sent to their rooms without supper.

Morons.


Off topic but...

What happens in a state with concealed carry and one or the other has a gun?

Based on the hot head in the pick 'em up truck, my guess is since he missed with the truck he'd try again with the gun... But he probably wouldn't have a CC permit as he "grow'd up thar..."

Road rage has become entirely too common these days. I had a fellow pull out in front of me last year and I had to swerve around him. Since he never saw me he thought I had cut him off and proceeded to follow me home, pulled right behind me in my garage (a detached building behind my house and enclosed in a fenced in back yard).

I would not consider myself a hot head and hadn't even responded to his insults and manic driving after he presumed I had wronged him (and that's all it was as there was no contact or even cause for him to brake when I went around him, he just felt wronged). But when he followed me on to my property and basically had me cornered in my own garage, I reacted to protect myself. I do have a CC permit and drew my pistol when he told me he was going to "whip my ass". All I said was "You need to leave now" and thankfully he did because I would have shot him. That's not bravado, I was not Dirty Harry and I was scared to death that I was going to have to shoot him. But while I was willing to drive away from him, ignore his insults, and even his dangerous driving, I refused to surrender in my own garage.

I called the police and filed a report but nothing came of it. I suppose I could have pushed it since I had a tag number but I let it go.

All of that because he thought he had been cut off. And lets say for the sake of argument that I had cut him off and he was completely justified in his indignation over my "bad driving", where is the sense of perspective?

Sadly this video is one more example of a problem that seems to be getting worse not better.

I saw this posted on another mc site. The follow up there stated the pickup driver was cited for reckless driving, vechiular assault (or something like that) and DUI.

I saw it too, but I have seen nothing in the press saying that charges were filed. Until I see that, I remain skeptical.
