    I hate wrong way riders so much. I'm not particularly fond of jaywalkers either. They both needed to be hurt more.

    I don't blame the jaywalker for looking in the correct direction of traffic flow. He didn't have any cars in his direction. The salmon rider was at fault.

    Except for the salmon (I know, kind of a key feature) that vid reminded me of a scene from 30 years ago. I was looking out a third-story window at a road on my college campus (no private cars allowed; often thousands of bikes). A man who looked just like the ped in the vid was jaywalking and was knocked down by a young woman on her bike (she was chatting with a couple of other cyclists and didn't see him). The old guy just got up, helped the young woman up, and they both went along their way like this happens every day. I really enjoyed being in a place where bikes outnumbered cars by hundreds to one.

    Maybe not all the cars, but the cyclist and the ped.

    A guy videos himself going the wrong way down a one-way, creams a pedestrian, and then the video ends up on youTube?

    Call me sick, but the ending gets funnier every time I watch it. Cyclist yells to onlookers: "He wasn't using a crosswalk, - cancels out. It's Ok. Keep walking".

    You'd think the Ped would have had a little more to say but I suppose their reactions are pretty believable. Neither one is too proud and each of them just wants to get out of there.

    Not staged. Even made the news a couple of days ago.

    Just two idiots that both got what they deserved.

    Interesting that even in this clear case of mutual fault, many want to place full blame on the cyclist.

    If this was a vid of a vehicle going the wrong way and hit a ped or bicyclist, everybody would be up in arms.


    Oops! The bicycle is a vehicle.

    first time i watched this, i though, wow, this tool has $hit reaction time. second time through i notice he's riding no hands!

    counterflow, door zone, no hands.

    keep it up, buddy. you're gonna be easy pickings for chuck D.

    if you want to lay out blame by percentage, i'll say 99.7% cyclist.

    Yeah, 'cause jaywalking is so much more dangerous than riding the wrong way through traffic.

    I walk outside of a crosswalk/against a crossing light all the time, because I'm smart enough to figure out when no cars are coming; however, I never ride against traffic (although I dodge a lot of idiot university students who do). So maybe I'm more inclined to side with the pedestrian.

    I'm more inclined to side with the pedestrian 'cause dude on the cycle was going the wrong damn way. Those cars whizzing by - screw that. I'm not really fond of how life's going sometimes, but I don't think I'm ready for it to wrap up just yet.

    Is this common? On my gym commute, I go down a very very unbusy one-way street the wrong way for half of a block before turning, and I'm crazy careful about that. I hate doing it, but crossing the road there/turning off where I do makes the most sense for everyone involved on my route. I defer to anybody for the few seconds I'm on that street, though.

    "Two wrong don't make a right"

    This will be a great educational video for demonstrating the danger riding the wrong way.

    I suspect that because he was GOING THE WRONG WAY.

    Calling that cyclist "dumb as a post" would be an insult to every sapling with dreams of growing up, getting cut down, hauled to a sawmill, and getting hewn into a post.

    What a tool!
    That jackhole is why people have such a low opinion of cyclist. I don't care that the guy was jay walking he looked the way traffic was coming and had that tool been following the law this wouldn't have happend.

    this. in the grand realm of comparative negligence, there would have been a whole lot of it in the salmon's side of things. the walker should have looked both ways, but traffic on that road is not legally allowed to come at him silently from the wrong direction

    this is clearly a case of two wrongs make an AWESOME. *spams all his friends* *watches again*
