It doesn't matter! The driver is surrounded by a box of metal about a thousand pounds. The cyclist has next to nothing. Same with pedestrians. A car hits a cyclist or a pedestrian and guess who's in trouble? They could be paying no attention and it's always going to be the driver's fault! It's part of the responsibility that comes with getting your license. OP, I hope while you were writhing around on the ground in front of his car you snapped a picture of his license plate to report him.

#29: First off, in many places bicycles are legally allowed to take up a lane (it's actually often recommended that they do so, for safety and visibility reasons), and in many they are NOT allowed to ride on the sidewalk. Second, there's no bicyclists-vs-motorists battle. Bicyclists are not in league any more than drivers are, and even if they were, the only way to win is for everyone to stay safe. (And see above, or do a web search for data; taking up a whole lane is considered safe.) F

#43, what #29 is trying to say is that it often is the cyclist's fault. As a cyclist myself, I would consider taking up an entire lane obnoxious - give yourself space to move in and stay visible by all means, but at least be considerate enough to let cars past. I would understand if the cyclist was turning, that makes sense. I would argue that there is a battle between cyclists and motorists, but the cyclists are more like an untrained militia group who think they are doing the right thing, comp

I'd be sympathetic if there is no bike lane, as riding on the sidewalks here is illegal. Too often though I see bicyclers here with a 5 foot wide bicycle lane blocking traffic by riding in the middle of the road. There are a lot of self-righteous jackasses on bikes that want to just screw with motorists. I don't have enough info to pass judgement in the case of this FML but I can at least understand somewhat the frustration that drivers can feel toward cyclists.

, it would be hilarious if the driver instead of the biker sued instead for property damage ( his bumper took quite the beating when that biker bounced off it at 40 miles per hour )and emotional disturbance. And won. God bless 'Murica and her lawsuits

Um, stereotyping much? Not every single American is like that. My best friend could've sued all the countless drivers who have hit her cars over the years and become a millionaire. But she didn't because she's a decent caring person and she wasn't grievously injured. If you were to clarify your comment by adding that some Americans think this way, your comment would be fine. But don't stereotype people like that on the Internet. That's like saying all black people commit street crimes or all whi

Funny how the guy who says "i'm not American" tells me what Americans do. Please tell me more stereotypes.

Gosh, OP. Can't you tell how obvious it is he really does have places to be? Places like psychiatric rehab, by the sound of it.
