    Blame or not. Fines or not. We'll probably see more GoPros used, more videos uploaded, and a general escalation from both sides.
    End result will NOT be more driver education for motor vehicle operators. Most likely WILL BE more scrutiny of all motorcyclists and additional laws against the motorcycling community.

    I dunno - a go pro can be a good thing. Remember the off duty LEO who drew his gun on a motorcyclist? Did more good than harm in that case.

    I'm ignorant, what's a "LEO"
    GoPro's keep everyone honest. In this case I bet no video would have left the RR more at fault.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    I am from a rural area. I find more use for a rock crawler bumper in the city than in the country. Even the dumbest guy can add up what will happen when that winch and brushgaurd makes contact. Of course I would also think that having different color sheetmetal on the right front would discourage guys from cutting me off and trying to make a hole in 80mph freeway traffic but I digress....


    My take is the biker brake checked the range rover and got his bluff called. I would have stopped, called 911. If the bikers escalated, I would have told dispatch I was leaving due to hostility in the area. When you call its recorded from that point forward. And I would have kept a running dialog of what was happening around me. I seriously doubt you would be charged with a leaving the scene if you are telling dispatch the guy's friends are bashing my car and threatening me and my family.

    The benefits of NYC or any metropolis have never outweighed the downsides (edit: FOR ME and me alone!). I refuse to go to New York as a state due to their politics (a discussion of which doesn't really have a place here IMHO so I will leave it at that). I appreciate art, fine dining, night life, and the tons of other awesome things there. But the idiot per square meter ratio is way too high. The city isn't healthy for me, and I am not healthy for it so I stay away as much as possible.

    I know, once you get out of the city the whole state is so damn conservative it's scary!!!!!! (kidding, couldn't resist - don't raise the political discussion flag based on my joke)

    I'm involved with offshore powerboats and Go Pro cameras have documented a number of incidents the past few years. One significant issue that reoccurs is the difficulty in defining separation between objects involved in the incident. The movies always make thing easy to understand due to camera placement and intended action. Real world things happen fast.
