Guy on DVP: Cyclist or Pedestrian?
 
A couple of days ago, someone was walking or riding his bike on the DVP (there's at least one witness who said that he was riding) and was hit by a car. The police has charged him as being a pedestrian (for now). But is he really a pedestrian as he was walking or is he a cyclist? (Darwin award nominee is a given in either case.) :lol:

The real question: is this guy a moron or is this guy a moron?

Sorry, dude. Darwin award requires the guy to remove himself from the gene pool.

I think we have to give the guy the benefit of the doubt. He may be really unfamiliar with the area. I don't think anyone would do that on purpose. So perhaps he accidentally found his way onto an onramp, and then was lost and panicked.

j-walking a highway makes you a moron regardless of how you got there. Why would he get off the shoulder once he was on the highway?
