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.

  • Agreed, no grey area at all; the lorry clearly crossed a red light and the motorcyclist was riding without due care. It would have been the lorry's fault if it had gone pear-shaped but filtering at the speed limit is plain stupid and what's with continuing filtering when the light started turning? That's when he's supposed to get back in as the cars in front of him will have started moving.

  • The truck obviously ran the light late however the bike was not exactly weaving with caution ! Even as a biker I think the bike was travelling a bit to quickly. So whilst it was the Trucks fault the biker was not riding defensively.

  • 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.

  • 1. red lights mean stop. 2. a green light only means go if it safe to do wasn't.. 3 chevron/hatched areas should not be entered.. 4 this isn't a motogp and trying to "grab the hole shot" isn't the way to stay alive 5. two idiots drivers will result in a dead biker , if the other guy is in a truck.... and you cant win a court case from a coffin. very poor driving on both sides.
