As mentioned in the Jalopnik article with the same headline earlier in the week, this actually took place in....


ready?


Texas.

Had the bumper or back window of the pickup been clearly visible, it would have been much easier to figure that out.

They didn't sound Canadian to me.

Please note that this is obviously an experienced, alert bike rider and a typical car driver.
If the guy on the bike hadn't been paying attention, he'd have been seriously injured.

To be fair, this probably IS how Canadians deal with road rage, eh?

It is quite possible that he shouldn't be exceeding a speed that is unsafe to stop soundly within a certain amount of space. Like the law says.

With all the love in the air after the little mishap, it wouldn't have hurt to remind the truck driver to check his mirrors once in a while.

Farking predictable...

A normal everyday occurance is totally dismissed as myth.

But governor dipshiat opens his mouth, and that obviously is how ALL residents of Texas think.

I'm sure if there was some damage to the truck it would have unfolded very differently.

They are not French, they are Quebecois. And they're awesome. (Although I will agree with the idea that they can't drive for shiat.)

I stand corrected. However only some Quebecois are awesome, there are a few that are jerks.

The law doesn't require you to account for drivers potentially cutting you off. Otherwise you'd never be allowed to pass any other vehicles.

Given how that state favors extra-large trucks, it would be apropos to use the Castle Doctrine.

The exception to this rule is cab drivers.

Cab drivers in Canada can, and do, turn anyone into cauldrons of frothy rage.

I've lived all over, and for no apparent reason, everyone I've ever seen with Texas plates outside Texas was safe and courteous on the road, in all weather conditions. I have no clue why, but Texans are the best drivers in the country. Although, I've never witnessed them driving inside their own state.

Now assuming the biker had smoked his way into the truck and smeared his way across 50 *METERS* of roadway...

His medical fees would be 100% covered thanks to our SOCIALIST MEDICAL SYSTEM.

The last accident I got into was at around 5:30 am on a dirt road in BC, Canada. The truck ahead of me saw a moose (hunting season) and threw it in reverse to get a better look at the bull. Unfortunately, I happened to be right behind him and also staring at the moose. He backed right into my front bumper.. I had no insurance at the time.. not even a valid driver's license. Needless to say, I could have been in a world of shiat. The guy jumped out and apologized, we talked about the bull we saw.. drank some coffee. Apologized to each other again and went on our way.

The "new Canadian" road rage. Some douchebag was tailgating me, so I moved over into the next lane and waved a finger at him as he shot past me. Next thing I hear is a piss-drink guy with a heavy Arab accent screaming, "Why you give me the finger, asshole? Why you give me the finger?"

(CSB) I went through Houston in the most farked up traffic I've ever seen. It took about 2 hours to travel 8 miles. A main accident jacked up everything and closed three lanes. I thought round robin merging was the universal nod of respect. If so, Houston hasn't heard of it. On two separate occasions, a driver forced the merge, stood on the gas pedal while giving the world the finger, and drove straight into another accident. It was waves of jacked up.

It's not just Houston. All 2500 miles of I-10 sucks ass. 40 is better but passes through Arkansas. Not sure which route wins in that dueling banjo of hells.

Happened to me and I got punched in the mouth through my window while doing the right thing and looking for my insurance card. Sucked so much.

I've met two Texans in my entire life, and they've both been very awesome people. It's a small sample size, but still.

Rubbish. If I decide to go out on the road in an inherently unsafe vehicle that you could fit three of in most cars' blind spots, then it's the drivers of those cars who need to be extra-careful for my safety. MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE!!!11!!

First time I ever visited Canada (Toronto), our cab driver missed his exit on the highway from the airport to the hotel. So, he stopped in the middle of this 5-lane highway, threw it in reverse, and backed up a few hundred feet so he could take the exit.

It's superficially polite but passive-agressive road rage, which is about as Canadian as it gets.

People from the rest of the planet are ruining this state.

Texans are hands down the nicest drivers I've ever seen. Several times, I actually saw a Texan who was driving slowly pull over onto the shoulder to let someone pass them. I was blow away.

Y'all have some means Cops though. Being white, friendly and having a clean record not get me a "get out of a ticket pass" like it does up here.
