Yesterday, much was made of a GoPro video of a cyclist getting hit by a passing motorist. The outrage against the motorist was swift and loud, but no one seemed to notice the cyclist was smack dab in the middle of the road???
Here’s the video, in the tweet from ABC.
Note, the tweet says driver faces multiple charges. Hey, the driver was expected to cross the double yellow line, at a bend in the road, jeopardizing himself, when to MY way of thinking, the cyclist should not have been in the middle of the road. This happens all the time around here – cyclists riding two and three abreast in the middle of narrow winding roads. I’m not saying the car should have hit the cyclist, I’m not, but that the cyclist thought it was okay to take up so much of the road to force the vehicles across the road? Insane!
I report. You decide. Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Should the cyclist face charges too?
