    Re: Motorcyclists Pull Driver from Car in NYC, Beat Him After Collision

    I ride motorcycle. In this instance the SUV definitely should have had the right to do what he did. Everyone's seen the six minute video at this point and has their opinions. Some feel he should have been in fear for his life, some feel the bikers were all being cool until he decided to try to kill them.

    Before the six minute video started the SUV had actually called 911. If you look for some of the older videos of the same group of bikers there's one from 2011 where they get mad at a Prius who tried going through a green light while they were busy running red light after red light. Motorcycles stop around the Prius, one knocks on the passenger glass and the Prius rolls down it's window. A motorcyclist lunges/grabs at something in the passenger seat (a passenger?) and the Prius rolls the window up. Camera man rides off. Since that never made the news I'll assume they didn't bloody up the Prius driver for running a green light. But it seems the group has a history of trouble. Indeed, the injured motorcylist has something like 17 violations for speed, reckless, endangering. Never had a license. And is suspended from ever getting a license through 2017.

    This is a group of motorcyclists with no regard for the rules of the road that was looking for trouble.

    What's missing is that this group of cyclists were attempting to shut down the highway to allow for their trick riding. Also, latest reports say the run-over cyclist is paralyzed.

    Rules of the road state that motorcycles should be treated in the same as cars/other full sized motor vehicles...

    Was it right for the bikers to beat his ass? not legally but I cant blame them after something like that.... Your adrenaline kicks in after something like that - some of those riders could have been killed..

    I don't know how that guy even got close to those riders....... I see bikers all the time riding and I just stay well behind them (or at least give them their space)....
    Then watch the video again because the guy that got hit rode up on the truck, came into that lane and appears to say something to the driver then cuts in front of him and brakes.

    Reports are that they were riding through intersections, clogging them up for up to 15 minutes (several light cycles) by blocking off the intersection, stopping, getting off their bikes to talk, and so forth...They were originally denied a permit to do this ride.

    But that aside, from the video, it looked to me like the bikers were boxing him in, and then the one, got in front and slowed down to try and force him to stop....I don't know as I would have stopped either.
    I ride myself, and also drive a car as well and have seen nothing like that..... The only reason why I could possibly think the guy was boxed in was because he was tailgating them or taunting them for no reason..... Can't say I have ever seen a group of bikers just provoke for no reason whatsoever.......

    I'm pretty sure he wasn't just singled out for no reason.....

    Yes. IF you are threatened and you are acting in the defense of your family. No problem, I just wish he would have backed up and ran a few more down.

    He was supposedly dialing 911 after the monster trucking of the losers bikes.
    He had every right to run them down and leave the area.
    Many states, people would have gotten out with a gun and started firing.

    That is a possibility, we don't know yet the whole story. But, I ride also, and drive truck, and car. What you are describing is road rage on the part of the bikers....They had no permit to shut down the highway, nor do they have the right to assault another motorist because he is taunting them, if that was the case....

    The guy had every right to flee without question.....

    The driver in the SUV was in danger potentially for his life...

    I just wonder what caused the whole altercation because something obviously happened before video was being shot...
