I expected her to hit him while they were still in the parking lot.

Backing out of her spot lol

Yes, that it what I had in my mind. In that sense the video is actually unexpected 😁

omkar_T7

Im actually confused why he looked left and then stopped. He had plenty of time to go. Someone elaborate


Vogen_nundye

Watch it again, the first time he looks left a car is coming, then when he looks left again right before she hits him, then that car turns right. You learn to drive VERY defensively as a motorcyclist because you have to assume all other cars aren’t driving properly. It’s always better to be safe than sorry as a motorcyclist and ensure what cars are doing. You have to minimize your role in any accidents that could happen. It’s harder for a motorcycle to take a right turn quickly and they often wait longer than usual because you need momentum to keep the bike up right, and can’t brake as quickly as a car without potentially sliding your bike. There are a lot of physics to driving a motorcycle.

Haha I thought she was going to back into him as he left the parking lot. This is somehow even stupider.


Couchmaster007

I knew she would hit him since it is unexpected and she said watch out for idiots, but I thought she would pull out and just bang him.

She did tell you to watch out... sounded like a threat to me 😂


Conscious-Ask-2645

Not sure why he completely stopped at a yield sign with zero traffic coming


humpbackwhale97

The white car didn't turn on his indicator. So he wasnt sure if it would continue I would assume. Better be safe than sorry. Even tho in this case who could have known his mom does this.


Reliquat

>Better be safe then sorry Unfortunate misspelling :)


z03steppingforth

> Better be safe then sorry The irony of this spelling error is hilarious.


ronin1066

The white car that was like half a football field away already turning to its right?


rivermandan

> The white car didn't turn on his indicator. do you have some secret hi-res footage that shows that? because the 12 pixels in the video posted absolutely do not make that clear. also, while I'm not taking a shred of guilt from the mom, captain baddass over here with the tucked in mirrors should spend some time learning the basics of defensive motorcycle driving, which becomes with peripheral awareness. when slowing down at a stop like that, you want to have proper lane positioning and know what is goign on behind you (mirrors in a better position help that but don't look as cool) when you are coming to a stop.


RedFireAlert

Stopping at a yield isn't being safer, though. Stopping isn't the equivalent of removing yourself from the equation. When you're on the road, the safest thing you an do is be predictable - being stopped in a less common spot to stop is less predictable.


Knuffel_beertje

To get hit by his mom

[удалено]


forgotaboutsteve

Help me stepmom! I’m stuck in traffic!


_You-Are_

No traffic? Is the white car just invisible?


matti-san

Are Yield signs like Give Way signs? In that case, I feel like he could have got out before the white car got up to him. Doesn't it also turn off? I suppose it would help if they were using their indicators


InDarkLight

He could have beaten the white car, but he chose not to which is fine. Yield just means, go if there isn't cars, but stop if there is cars and proceed when able.


matti-san

Ah yeah, same as a give way sign here then. Same shape too, different colour though. Tbf, when I first started to drive I'd stop at most give way signs because I wasn't confident enough in my ability to 1. read the oncoming vehicle's speed and 2. get out and go and accelerate in a timely manner so as to not hold up the oncoming traffic if I did pull out in front of them (or to not get rear-ended by them). If that makes sense.


SpoonResistance

Yield means yield. If traffic is approaching, you yield to them, as in you stop or slow down to avoid them. Sometimes speeding up is acceptable, depending on the situation, but if you're on a motorcycle it's especially important to consider what the safest option is, since you're not sitting in an armored box like everyone else. In this case, ironically, taking the safest option caused him to get hit, but it's not like he could've predicted that.


PlantMan82

Thank you! I was wondering that myself. He’s the one we have to look out for!


AMeowingCat

Really? Is he? So because someone is completely stationary when they may not need to be you just barrel into the back of them?


3zmac

Absolutely not, but it's clear upon approach that it's a low traffic area. His mom should have hit the brakes, though she was likely looking over her shoulder for oncoming traffic and missed him, stopped at a yield when he didn't need to be. She's still in the wrong, but even if her son was driving a car I'd say he isn't a great driver either. Edit: seems that my wording is confusing. I'm not defending the mom. She is 100% at fault. I was adding to the argument that the biker is who needs to be watched out for by drivers. He stopped when he didn't necessarily need to. Which is fine, and acceptable for cautious driving expected from a motorcycle, just not always expected by careless drivers (like his mom)


Dietmar_der_Dr

>but it's clear upon approach that it's a low traffic area. His mom should have hit the brakes, though she was likely looking over her shoulder for oncoming traffic and missed him That just makes no sense. So he shouldn't stop because it's a low traffic area, but she can just look into random directions to check traffic? There clearly was another car, he wasn't sure if it was turning or not so he yielded(he didn't have to but it's hardly a horrible move). She moved bumper to bumper at speed while looking at random things. She was clearly moving too quickly and too close for her reaction and head turning times. This is literally 100% her fault. If you think otherwise then that is because you are not observing basic road safety.


AMeowingCat

Nah I’m sorry man this is 100% on the driver that hits the other person. Yeah okay undue hesitation isn’t exactly a good driving trait but the first thing you learn on the roads is to look out for unexpected situations such as someone yielding when they don’t necessarily need to. Even if she was looking the other way as she hit him she had all the time in the world to see that there was an obstacle she needed to stop for


suitology

You are retarded. He was a stationary object at an intersectional merge point.


aliaswyvernspur

If you notice just after he gets hit, a red and white truck goes by, he probably was waiting for that truck.


bearbarebere

Actually where did it come from? Because when he glances over his shoulder I didn't see anything and then when after he got hit that truck went speeding by. Wth


sebastiancounts

When you’re on a motorcycle, you don’t have the safety bubble of a car, if you’re not overly aware of the possibilities of human error across the roads, something will eventually happen. I’d rather yield cautiously than take a chance at being swiped. It’s scary man, people do not drive like they’re a meat sack flying across land in a 2 ton ball of steel. Every time I get back in a car after riding I feel like I’m in a womb.

Nobody is saying shes a victim. Just the contrast of her being so supportive and to “be safe” then she smashes into him. Good mom skills, horrendous driving skills.


Diofernic

Of course she's not the victim, it's still absolutely crushing to be the reason someone you love gets hurt


LeftysSuck

I feel so bad for the guy. You know the last thing he wants is a random motorcycle body shop cost, and if this guy is a decent man, which I assume he is, he's not gunna make his mom pay for it.


MrPuffyIsAHuffy

Insurance is required for all cars and bikes in the US... he nor his mom will end up paying for this(assuming they both are insured). The only thing that will happen here is moms premiums will go up and he might have to pay a deductible depending on his coverage.


shanedesign

Sounds like a good deal for the insurance companies.


scypher45

Not all of the US, I live in New Hampshire and we don't need insurance. Live free or die and all that. I believe Virginia does not require it either.

iamaiimpala

Interesting. >While New Hampshire does not have a mandatory insurance law, the state does require you to pay for costs of bodily injury or property damage resulting from a car accident you caused. Your driver's license will be suspended until you can show that you can meet the costs of the offending accident. https://www.dmv.org/nh-new-hampshire/car-insurance.php


scypher45

The problem with this is that credit lenders require full coverage insurance, so the people with old junkers who can't afford to cover any damage from an accident are the ones who are uninsured.


iamaiimpala

Are you a resident? I grew up next door in VT and never realized this about NH. Seems like a minor savings to be one accident away from bankruptcy and a suspended license. Nevermind the fact that you wouldn't be legally allowed to drive out of state.


scypher45

Yeah, I have lived here most of my life. It really is not worth it. My brother was t boned a few months ago by someone who was uninsured and his only course of action to get paid would be to sue him. I insurance for both my and my wife's car is only about $100 a month too.


5hn1t3r13

Wait are you serious? Lmao I did not know that. Very interesting!


bstaple

If they go through insurance, both their premiums will go up, and at those speeds it's probably cheaper to fix it out of pocket and not involve insurance at all.


Ok-Conflict-9017

*"...if this guy is a decent man, which I assume he is, he's not gunna make his money pay for it."* What's he gonna pay for it with then, if not his money? Every biker knows ass, grass or cash.

WhereBeThemPieRates

Why did he stop tho? It's just a yield sign, and he had plenty of time to get going.


[deleted]

White car wasn t indicating that it was turning, he thought it was going straight. Also, when you re in a car, you can accelerate while exiting a turn without losing traction. On a bike you can't do that, you ll oversteer, also balancing the bike off of a stationary turn is tricky for some.

I was once rear-ended by a kid who was on the phone with his mom at that very moment telling him not to use his phone while driving. Doh!

H311BLADE

When she said "watch out for idiots", she warned him of her.


peyntrain

Why did the biker fully stop? There wasn't a stop sign?


furexfurex

1. people are allowed to stop at junctions when there isn't a stop sign for any reason 2. The white car wasn't indicating, so it's safer to wait to see where they're going than to just assume they're turning and risk getting rammed in the side


aliaswyvernspur

Plus, just after he gets hit, a red and white truck goes by, might have wanted to wait for it to pass.
