I saw this on Kawiforums, they were riding fast, but that had nothing to do with a car getting in his lane.

you think the dot UK was a hint?

There are no such things as accidents - just examples where people do not think one step ahead.

I think it is the biker's fault for not anticipating the car and outriding his ability to respond appropriately (defensively) in traffic.

Sux to be him.

you think the car driver could tell that a dot on his rear view mirror was about to pass him in less then a second? That was way too fast for the road.

like others have said, Save that for the track.

They drive on the wrong side of the road over there. The bike was in the correct lane, the car came into his lane.

The car was going in the same direction. It was doing a lane change, a stupid and clumsy lane change, but thats what it was. The rider got hit that car, and then slammed midair into the oncoming van.

I mean yea the car wasnt doing things correctly too, but the rider could have avoided the accident if he wasn't going so fast.
