Truck Vs Bike - near miss

My initial response when watching this video isn't repeatable on these pages. A split second earlier and the truck would've gone straight over the bike rider, at best severely injuring him.

If you look at the traffic light sequence, there's not even a grey area with this one.

The truck belongs to Briggs & Partner of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire - 01422 372 515

Yes, the bike was making progress legally which seems to have angered some social media users who even go as far as saying he deserved to be killed!

The inexperience of the bike rider is clear to see as well, as accelerating into a junction area like that is hazardous, whether it's from red light runners or even pedestrians.

  • Bike is doing around 25 as it passes the rear of the lead car, at that point their light is green, so not 'amber gamble'. The truck cannot have had a green light when it crossed the line around the corner, so the truck ran a red light and should lose their licence. Once and for all, DASHED chevrons are completely legal to ride or drive over, but it is done at your own risk.

    TL::DR, Bike not speeding, light is green, truck ran red light...

  • Well, on the road, it says SLOW and looking to the cars, it seems as the signal has just turned green. And the bike was speeding on but he should've slow down for his own safety.
