[SYD] Near head-on with car

Discussion in 'Your Near Misses - A Place to Vent' started by alexanderino, Jan 20, 2012.

  1. Happened this morning on the way to work. Spidey tingles went off the moment I noticed him, and covered my brakes. Sure enough, he begins to turn into my lane.

    Bloody wide angle camera exaggerates distances. It's much closer than it seems.

  2. always trust your spidie senses
  3. Why didn't you boot his headlight?
  4. Glad you avoided him, he was pretty close there.
  5. I didn't take my vitamins this morning :(

    Here's the forensic 5 FPS version. My thoughts are in the annotations:
  6. I think he was embarrassed and didn't want to make further eye contact.
  7. yeah and the bike behind him could have put the boot in too.
    then you both could have bashed him.
    what are all Sydney riders pansies or something
  8. Quite possible.
    Now there's an idea.
    Naah, we just lack discipline. Drop by and show us how it's done, you're welcome any time (y)
  9. police should have a look at that vid................
  10. Yeah. Time for another smartphone to load it on to.

    On a more positive note, a motorbike cop berated a guy in a white Celica for behaving like a fvckwit =D> He was quite severe about it, too. The cop got a gleeful thumbs-up from me.
