Emergency vehicles have a loud siren and flashing blue light to warn other road users that they are approaching.

Do you really think that the riders behaviour did not contribute to this collision.

The only thing that contributed to this collision was the driver not checking their mirrors before opening the door. The motorcyclists as many have pointed out could've guarded against this but the car driver was 100% at fault.

What about the brain dead lump of humanity who thought that they were far more important than the other people in the line of traffic and decided to undertake ( also illegal) at speed,just so they could get a few cars lengths ahead.

I love it when they quote smidsy well if you weren't approaching Mach 3 then maybe people would have a chance of seeing you coming


Given it clearly isn't in the UK,how do you know that the undertaking wasn't legal? The rider may not have been riding in a manner appropriate for the circumstances but it is still the responsibility of someone opening their car door into the road to check it is clear to do so.

While not condoning the actions, wearing t-shirt and jeans isn't the best on a bike IMO. Although I've no idea what motocyclists should wear on a warm day.

Also illegal....in the Ukraine where this incident took place?

Filtering is not illegal in the UK but the guy in Kiev was going too fast.
