ZERO payoff IMO. Spend time and money to get out of a ticket/tickets you talked yourself into getting by being an ass? Waste of time. I got much better shit to do.

Cop was wrong, got butt hurt, vented, and that is it. @ minutes out of your day and you are on your way. Now had the cop actually written tickets, then it would be a different story.

Doesn't matter why you rear-end any vehicle, it's always the striking driver's fault even if someone hits you from behind and pushes you into the vehicle in front of you.

I would have got off the bike to make sure my camera picked up the cruiser with it's number and the cop's badge, taken the tickets and called a lawyer.

Anybody dumb enough to handle that situation that way is too dumb to be carrying a gun.

Except that the rider is on both videos admitting fault. He would have to claim, for the record - that he did it under duress, that he was afraid of the cop. Actually not a bad strategy in a suit if his goal is to get the cop removed from the street, if not from the department.

What the cop did qualifies as witness intimidation and tampering. Serious felonies. As far as I know that qualifies as police corruption.

I'm probably going to get flamed, but the cop wasn't wrong to be upset.

The motorcycle rider was an idiot for brake checking in the middle of moving traffic. He sped up, which probably made the cop think he was making room for him to come over, and then came to a complete stop!

There was more than enough room for him to continue at a reasonable pace while letting the Accord merge over into the right lane.

He can be upset all he wants but he doesn't have to be a dick or threaten the guy just so he won't be in trouble for an at fault rear ending.

Damn cop.

He should have been written up.

Regardless, any kind of rear ending is the rear car's fault.

Point noted, but I've had the same thing happen to me so many times on BW, 66, 95 I can't help but to be sympathetic.

I'm driving along, traffic is moderate or even dense. I'm in one lane and want to move to the adjacent lane where there is a car/vehicle slightly ahead but with a car length's gap. That car has at least 20-30ft between itself and the car ahead of it.

As I begin my merge, the car in the adjacent lane for no reason either starts pacing me or rapidly decelerates for no good damn reason, leaving me either to swerve back into my lane, straddle the lanes, or ram the car!

WTF. I want to literally jump out of my car and throttle people who do this.

You are following too closely then. Isn't the rule that you need one car length for every 10 mph you are going?

It sucks that people drive like b-holes like this, but if you hit him its your fault.

Same with the cop. Definitely his fault for rear ending someone then him trying to cover his ass by threatening the driver he rear ended? Mmmmkay.

2 seconds. If you keep 2 seconds or more, you usually will have adequate time to avoid a hazard. Using the two second rule eliminates any distance guesswork. As your speed increases , so does the distance you travel in two seconds
