    This is why I run a dash cam in ALL my cars.

    The first... Pulling out of a parking lot, the bike was turning the corner as I was pulling into the street, several hundred feet back from where I was. She (judging by the flowers on the helmet) must have been cranking on it as soon as she turned. Almost took the right side mirror off and scared the snot out of Mrs. Big John who was in the passenger seat.



    This was this morning. Speed limit is 55 in that area, and I was down to 45, because I know it gets busy there. Glad I was paying attention.



    I've actually talked to the owner of the Vette because it looks just like my old one. I'll see him again... BTW, he got the "salute" when I went around the corner.

    I have another video of my wife hitting a kid on a bike that I won't show. Completely his fault, he rode through a red light. Just a scraped elbow and a bent up bike. The video was reviewed by the cops and the kid (and his Mom) got a yelling at.

    Saved our bacon.... that time.

    That's the main reason why I hate all bikers, they are the worst of the worst when it comes to road manners! What's with you doing 43 in a 30 zone? That vette could've easily gone before the black car in front of you or immediately thereafter, WTF is that dude's problem? I would've T-boned the shit outta that vette! F-ing douchebag!!

    come on now Stubs
    We aren’t all jack ass’s on bikes
    I do agree that a lot of crotch rocket riders deserve to crash and burn for totally disregarding the rules of the road

    They think they are playing road rash video games

    The motorbikes don’t bother me. It’s the pedal bike adults and walkers on our bike paths. The problem of people stepping off the curb without stopping or looking for traffic got so bad the city put stop signs on the bike path. The cutesy helmet, lycra wearing fellas are the worst. I have this problem all the time entering my sub. They will look right at you and still ride/walk right in front of me as I’m making a left turn. Leaving me stopped in front of oncoming traffic. After a rather lively discussion with this one guy, I pointed to the dash cam and suggested we go over to the Sheriff’s office and take a look at the video. He shut-up and pedaled away down the bike path. These are the same kinda guys that demand the right to ride out in the street then ignore stop signs and red lights.
    I have yet to need the dash cam in court but I figure it’s just a matter of time.

    Unfortunately if you did hit that vette, you both would have gotten tickets, and would be tied up in court for years with the insurance companies.

    You were going too slow BJ and shouldn't have pulled out in front of that bike. If the guy you pulled out in front of had to hit his brakes you shouldn't have gone.
    I would have done the same in my car.
    AND I HATE MOTORCYCLES

    Go watch it again and watch BJ's speed, he's fine! It's always the other guy! Besides, he sped up to 43 in a 30 zone.

    He would be fine. The vette would get the ticket for “failure to yield” or “illegal left turn”. Through traffic always has right of way plus he has video.

    :bs_flag: Even if John was doing 80 and the other guy was doing 150 you can't pull out.

    You rolled the stop sign coming out of the Walgreens lot. You did see the stop sign before posting up the video right? The Vette guy is a jerk thou.

    Oh but cutting someone off merge lane and passing on the right, let alone speeding is OK? Remember, John said he was "several hundred feet back" as they both pulled out at the same time! You sure as hell don't know your Rules of the road, but your a bigger Dick then I am so I'm done here!!!!!

    The bike wasn't even on the same street when I pulled out. She was turning onto the street the same time I was, except the intersection is a few hundred feet to the right of me. In other words, when I went out into the street, she wasn't even close to me. She hammered it around the corner.

    She wanted to pass me on the right, and really didn't have the power to do it. It took her a lot longer to catch me and pass me than she must have thought.

    The car that turned at the same time she did (2 lanes turning left) into the left lane (and would have ended up behind me) was still more than a hundred feet behind me.

    Yea, I did roll the stop sign a little.

    It really comes down if it was avoidable or not.

    I had the evidence that he screwed up, but if I had just drove into him, I would share some responsibility. I wouldn't do that anyway... Better to avoid the problems.

    The video does show me swerving and scrubbing off speed, so if I did tap him, I'd probably be OK, but you never know. If I just drove into him, it would show that I wasn't paying attention or didn't have good control etc.
