Check out this video. It all happens in the first minute - the rest of the video is the aftermath following the prang. This is not a "pick on the rider in the clip" thread - those kind of posts will be deleted. The rider has been good enough to put up the vid and we can all take the opportunity to learn from it. Despite everyone's penchant for 'rider onus' the van driver is clearly in the wrong. End of story. So the question for you is, what lessons and learnings do you take from this clip and this SMIDSY situation? What do you think about the rider stating that he assumed the driver had seen him?
