Agreed. Keep in mind that the lens on a GoPro distorts distance a bit, so I'm willing to bet that the car on the left that wanted in and started moving over was a lot closer than it looked, hence him getting on the brakes a little quick.

I don't think it was a setup for Youtube. The guy seemed shocked actually, look at his delayed responses, etc...

obviously, both sides have points and good ones at that....and you can argue either side.
however, it is my opion that the cop was following way too close, and wasn't paying attention.

its call following toooooooooooo close and not maintaning distance you piece of . He was probably using his computer... lol

what happens when you someone from behind? what is the 1st question that the cop is going to ask you other then how fast you were going? how about... how close you were following.

call a real cop next time.

agreed 100% if the cop would have been driving like we are supposed to, then he would have been able to easily stop.
How many times have you heard, if you hit someone in the rear, your fault. Most of the time that is true, as in this case. Cop was out of line with the threats and i would have taken the tickets.

Yeah I think cop never paid attention to the car in the left lane moving over and I would have done the same.The car was moving over and as a rider you have to assume he doesn't see you. It seems to me he was refering to the car further up when talking about the brake light.

Presuming the rider could have...ridden better that doesn't absolve the LEO of not paying attention and/or following too closely. The aggressive tone, threat of tickets...should gather him more than a wrist slap.

I don't know where this happened but if it was in Texas, it should be the cop's fault. Loss of badge and official oppression charges at worst or a verbal reprimand if he had reported the accident as he was supposed to.

Quote:
By Farhan Naqvi, Car Accident Lawyer in Las Vegas

One of the most common types of auto accidents is the rear-end collision. These can be dangerous for the driver of the front vehicle because he or she can potentially suffer shoulder, neck, or spinal damage – or even a traumatic brain injury.

In all but a few cases, the driver of the “rear-ending” car or truck will be at fault. Therefore, this driver would be liable for property damage to the “rear-ended” vehicle, as well as any injuries sustained by the victimized driver.

The underlying logic behind this determination lies in traffic laws which state that all drivers must be given room to stop when a vehicle stops in front of them. With that in mind, it is the responsibility of the “trailing” driver to follow at a safe distance in order for such a stop to occur safely.

There are a few exceptions, depending on the circumstances of the case, to this hard and fast rule.

If a pickup truck causes a five-vehicle “chain reaction” rear-end collision in Green Valley, the driver of the pickup is liable for the damages to all of the wrecked vehicles (as well as the injuries of the corresponding drivers).
If a car backs into a van on a sidestreet in Pahrump, the car is to blame for the collision.
If a minivan suddenly stops in the middle of I-15 for no reason and is struck by the traffic behind it, the minivan’s driver might be responsible for the accident.*
If the driver of a sports car stops in the middle of a North Las Vegas roadway to drink alcohol, smoke marijuana, or engage in some other illegal activity, he or she may be responsible for any ensuing rear-end accident that may occur.
If you have been the victim of a rear-end collision in the Las Vegas area and have suffered injuries as a result, contact a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.
Cop at fault.

I personally would not have let another car in and would have been riding on the other side of the lane.

Either way I feel the cop is at fault and would not have been as big of a push over as the rider

Again, not defending the cop cussing and not acting professional, but there was a violation on the rider's part.

If it were me, I'd have got out of the vehicle, calm and cool, and I'd have written him the ticket. I would not have let him ride off.
I'm sorry but that's the dumbest thing I've ever read.

There is simply no reason to ever be that close to another vehicle ever.
Maybe unless you are parallel parking.

Re: Cop rear ends rider, then BLAMES the rider

You guys would all be perfect suckers for swoop and squat or drive down collision fraud.

I've written many tickets for stopping abruptly in free lane of traffic, and put the skids to accident fraud rings on more than one occasion. Intentionally hammering your brakes when not required is a violation.

The officer was a , but as for the violation, he was correct. You can get irritable at me all day, but I'm just giving you the truth.

Also, as for not reporting an accident, there has to be damage or injury in order for an accident to be reportable. This one had neither. No report necessary.
