    Nope he deserved the verbal abuse. If he'd gone a second later that motorcyclist would have been smashed. He could have spared one second to look in the fucking mirror or turn his head. Guy needs to get kicked in the dick.

    Are we not allowed to be angry at people who do stupid shit that endangers others through no fault of their own, even if they are "sorry?"

    It's nunya business unless it was you who was endangered. I am sure that kicking him the nuts would have settled the situation perfectly for all involved. :baby

    At the very beginning of the video, I already wanted to kick the owner of the Lamborghini in the nuts for the stupid abomination of a paint job. Then he pulled out in front of the bike, nearly killing him, and I really wanted to hate him.

    However, against everything inside of me, I am siding with the lambo driver because of the loud mouth "lady" and the douche in the beater. STFU. Seriously. STFU.

    Nah, if you come within a fraction of a second of killing someone, you deserve to have verbal tomatoes thrown at you by the onlookers. Public shaming is a surprisingly effective corrective punishment.

    I can't really take a side going by what's presented in the video.
    The lambo driver took responsibility for his failure, which is a positive thing. My question is about everyone else, the rider, the loud mouth lady, the dude in the beater. Were they all there to use the road as a ractrack, pushing the limits, disregarding the law?
    I figure if a bunch of people use the same road for irresponsible behavior, they should curb their expectations as they're part of the problem.

    Only a fraction of the folks that ride the Snake are dangerous. But there are a lot of folks who like to go up and watch the show. That is why it is all "No Parking" now.

    According to description, the lady is the girlfriend of the rider, so it's understandable that she is extra pissed.

    And this is from Alex Choi's YouTube channel:

    And he sells stupid shirts:

    I'm guessing typical LA trust fund kid.

    Yeah, he deserves a kick in the nuts.

    The girlfriend is standing there watching her idiot boyfriend show off. The boyfriend almost gets gets taken out by another idiot who was showing off in a car. Darwin almost got another one.

    Anyone (car or bike) that goes back and forth multiple times on that same 1/2 mile section on the same day deserves a kick in the nuts.

    I don't have anything against folks using the road to play...if they're reasonable, and responsible about it.

    If one doesn't adhere to the letter of the law, at least respect the intent of the law so those who wish to use the road within it, and not get caught up in their nonsense may do so.

    The rider nearly taken out was not pushing the limits or disregarding the law based on his speed and lane position.

    The video doesn't provide enough perspective to confirm that with consideration for the location and conditions. Also the circumstantial evidence suggests otherwise.

    Yet his girlfriend was standing there waiting for him to go by as she filmed him? His speed was much higher than the bike that passed just before the dumb ass in the car pulled out. It's a fucking zoo with wanna be heroes showing off for crowds/girlfriends both in cars and on bikes. It has no place on public roads.

    Hopefully that motorcyclist will think twice next time before deciding to speed through an area crowded with douche bags.

    The speed limit there is 45. It's pure speculation that the rider was speeding, his line and speed seemed more than reasonable to me. What is not debatable is that the Lamborghini pulled out without yielding to traffic.
