Watch his shoes.

I don't really blame the driver...he may have been going a little fast but that scooter driver didn't appear to look over once before moving over, didn't see a turn signal...plus it's debatable that a scooter with a low max speed should be allowed to be on a major highway. Most of them have a top speed of about 40MPH.

I do wonder why he was taping, unless it's a cop car. I just noticed a car being towed at the beginning of the video.

...he would have gotten out of the car and beaten the scooter guy with his own shoes.


Since the scooter guy (at fault) was obviously not killed, it's OK to laugh, right?

Looked to me that scooter-guy (and I use the term "guy" loosely) was entirely at fault AND lucky to be alive.

I don't know if scooter guy hit the brakes or the vehicle was approaching that quickly

it's absurd to neglect to mention their contribution to the accident

scooter guy was changing lanes - it's on him to make sure he can do so safely. While car two may have driving fast, he isn't at fault unless he was driving so fast as to be reckless. It didn't appear to me that the first driver was being reckless.

greatly exceeding the speed of surrounding vehicles isn't reckless?

no doubt that scooter guy should've made sure he could secure his position in the lane though

Didn't appear he was "greatly exceeding" from my point of view. He was accelerating after traffic slowed down for the accident.

But don't take my word on it - I just do auto torts as part of my job. Not like I have any experience in it.

It was the scooter-guys fault.

The guy in the car seemed to be going a little fast for the right lane, but the scooter dude obviously wasn't careful enough when changing lanes. Still, seems that there was enough time to slow down to avoid hitting him.

Re: The Parking Lot...where scooters should stay.
 
Alright, we'll agree to disagree that he was greatly exceeding the speed of surrounding traffic. And ultimately yes it is scooter guy's fault by law. No need to continue to get salty and hrrumph about things man.

100% though?

I've got my no-fault hat on, thinking that the driver had more than enough time to slow down to avoid hitting him. Scooter guy is more to blame, but not 100%.
