    Cyclist + Car - Your Views & Let's be civil

    I am sure many of you must have seen the video about the cyclist being hit by the car and the car driver did not stop. Your views.

    Mine:

    I do not approve of the car not stopping and assessing the situation.

    However, I do believe that the cyclist was at fault.

    My reasons:

    It was a left curvy road with trees and the cyclist was driving very close to double yellow lines. There was a car in front so the hitter may not have seen the cyclist. After he saw he may have very little time to react and cross the double yellow lines and I would be afraid to cross double yellow with left curve and part of the road hidden due to trees.

    Yes, I saw the video on tv.. my view is: a car in some cases turns into a dangerous weapon. This is that case.

    Exactly, the person might have been saved.

    Try driving in the Netherlands...bicyclists have an automatic right of way, and if you're driving and hit a bicyclist, you're pretty much starting as assumed at fault. And, there are a lot of bikes there.
