I think we have another news story here where we don't have all of the facts and only a video of part of the scenario. Granted the car's driver was acting dangerously to the extreme no matter what provoked the situation. There is no defending the driver.
However, why is that cyclist continuing to put himself in extreme danger? How did he get himself into that situation in the first place?
What would the outcome have been had the driver freaked out and gunned his motor running the cyclist over and killing him? Most likely charged with vehicular homicide, yes, but that doesn't bring that cyclists life back, does it? For what? To prove some kind of point maybe? I can think of better causes to put my life on the line for rather than an irrational driver.
From what I see there's no defending that driver but the cyclist used poor judgement by continuing to put himself in danger with an irrational driver using his car as a weapon.
