    Nasty biking accident :( but who is at fault??

    Bikes scare the life out of me, i know so many people that have had accidents. Taken this from another forum, personally I think its both the bikers and the car driver at fault as the car pulls out but the bikers were driving like d*cks doing silly speeds overtaking.

    170mph down a 2 lane duel carriageway. What a ****, does he not think what if a car pulls out to overtake a lorry and doesn't see my in the mirrors. I think that in my car and wouldn't overtake a car at stupid speed because of that reason. Unless its a 3/4 lane motorway and can have an empty lane between me and anybody else as there are too many dumb idiots on the roads these days.

    Shame his mate died, but it was going to happen sooner or later to one of them.

    **** me!

    that must have hurt but 170mph, when over people on the road, they were kinda asking for it! especially as the other guy seemed to pull away so i wud guess he was doing 180+.

    Having been on a bike at 140+ its ****ing scary, blame wise im not sure, as he was speeding and due care and attention etc, but the car what was te doing. equal blame possibly

    I would say the driver was at fault more.

    The bike must have been doing 100+ at impact as the filming bike was doing 90 and he was pulling away.

    Car just went to overtake and probably didn't expect the bike to be going that fast, as you can see in the video he suddenly speeds up.

    According the news report yes he was doing 100+, I did assume the link would have copied with the news report but its just copied the vid for some reason

    the car was basically out when the bike hit it so the bike could of reacted better. Yes the car should of checked his mirrors betters and also the bike rider should of been riding like he was as that was stupid and irresponisble.

    Basically both to blame in there own way.

    170mph on dual carriageway fair enough.. but riding at such speeds on busy single carriageways is asking for trouble..

    From my point of view both a car driver and bike rider at fault (car for not using f00king mirrors and bike for speeding).
