All done. I don't know what I was thinking putting that up to be honest. I guess I was hungry for views. Silly me deleted now.

So. I'm curious. How would you go about exactly reporting something like this. I always thought you would have to actually go into a police station and file a report. So that's go to the police station, fill in a 4 page report, with diagrams, and names of the people or registrations. Hmm wait a minute you don't have any of these right.
Troll or not, thought I might toss in my small contribution, also Didnt see the vids.

Solidarity is a good thing, except when it applies to actual bad things actually caused by bikers. If we don't self-police, then legislators would start to over-police us. Again, Didnt see your vid, so don't know the full context, but it is something to keep in mind.

As for reporting, police these days are HUGE into social media investigations. We had some guys charged and convinced in British Columbia of dangerous driving (criminal code offense) based on YouTube uploads. Couldn't see anything more than a dash and speedometer of their vehicle, yet with eyewitness testimony and the details in the video it was enough detail to pursue. Your internet presence is big enough, especially as an uploader, to be easily tracked with the right tools. Police only need a valid tip (and a video of an incident occurring would be valid) and they can pursue. Of course, the likelihood of them doing this depends on the victims desire to prosecute. So, as a content creator, be very aware of what you upload and how your portray yourself.

Consider that my act of solidarity to you, and any other uploader, giving you knowledge to avoid trouble :-)

It's all moot. While I can't really speak for British law, in the US, if there is a cop on scene and the "victim" is being berated by that cop for doing something stupid and against the law (talking on a cell phone while riding a bike on active roadway)- case closed.

Now, it would also be very likely that guy on the bike would seek damages for his injuries and repairs, possibly via insurance companies. In that case, the video would save you again.

Im going to keep the video private and check it with somebody before I ever use it as evidence. Also, I am not going to go into detail on an open forum of what happened as that would be an admission as well.

Anyway, Please have a look at the channel, its got some great positive and hopefully entertaining videos up now.

So hows that posting a video of yourself deliberately driving into someone doing absolutely nothing wrong then lying through your back teeth about going then?

You're a terrible driver and shouldn't be on the road
