The video speaks for itself: driver’s close call with bicyclist

On Behalf of | Feb 10, 2016 | Bicycle Accidents |

Ah, the video.

No long-time resident of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities needs to be reminded that taped recordings can suddenly loom large in matters of public interest. Video-supplied evidence can add nuance to “what really happened,” often corroborate or flatly contradict various versions of declared reality, and sometimes flesh out with absolute finality the truth regarding otherwise ambiguous encounters.

Glendale is the scene of recently surfaced video footage that, as noted in one Southern California news account, has “inspired rage across the Internet.”

As is often the case, the rolling camera is literally focused upon one of those above-cited “realities,” with parties at odds advancing differing versions of what that filmed footage is all about.

The video, frankly, seems to speak for itself, and we would venture to say that most viewers looking at it would be more than a bit sympathetic to the bicyclist seen in the tape. By all visible indications, he seems to be riding well off to the right side of his lane, away from traffic traveling in the same direction. The footage quite clearly shows a driver moving up quickly from behind and steering sharply to the right nearby the bicyclist, who is forced to take quick evasive action.

The car’s driver was identified by a local news outlet and subsequently interviewed. He says that what the film is really showing is his attempt to slow down after being hit by that biker or another rider accompanying him. There is no footage to support his version of events.

And that version is false, say the bicyclists, who have filed a police report. The driver of the passenger vehicle has also submitted a report regarding the incident.

At the very least, the film shows the clear and present danger that can arise for bicyclists out on municipal roadways, given their comparative vulnerability and the driving behaviors of some motorists.
