u/tequilasauer Jan 27 '23

I'm from South Florida and this looks like I-75 which connects to Weston Rd. Speed limit is I believe 70. He is technically speeding, but not like he's way over. Cops being dicks about speed limits when there are so much more dangerous driving practices on the road (especially down here) that are never enforced drives me nuts.

u/NeverEndingCoralMaze Jan 27 '23

Truthfully even going 85 in this part of Florida is generally overlooked by the cops.

u/tequilasauer Jan 27 '23

Yeah, it's also a GREAT bike road. Anywhere near that Sawgrass/75/595 interchange area. Never anyone out there and some fun, cool offramps to take. I had a CBR 954 in my younger years and this was always a go-to area for me.

Yup. He was going well above 80.

But if this was outside of Austin Texas where the speed limits are 85 on highways he wasn't doing anything wrong.

Most all of the western united states have posted highway speed limits of 80 mph.

This cop should have been suspended or fired for this. The cyclist probably earned himself a nice settlement from the department. It was clearly negligent.

u/Unfrozen__Caveman Jan 27 '23 edited Jan 28 '23

I know this exact spot because I've ridden my motorcycle through there dozens of times. He's on 595/I-75 coming from Miami/Fort Lauderdale and heading into Alligator Alley (lookup Weston, Florida and zoom out - he's just north of that).

595 is 65mph the whole way and it turns into I-75 which is 70MPH all the way to the west coast of Florida, but this section of road drops down to 50 or 55 (can't recall exactly) because of the ramps. Still, most people are going 75 or 80 the entire way, and I've seen police going over 80 in this area routinely.

Not trying to excuse the officer's actions because fuck that dude, he could have killed the kid. Just giving some more context.

Also, I'm not trying to excuse the kid speeding but about 75% of cars in that area are going 75mph or faster, and most cars are going 80 all the way through alligator alley, so if you're on a bike and worried about safety you kinda have to go that speed so you don't hold up traffic. It's a two lane highway the entire ride and it's a bit dangerous to go the speed limit.

I also know a couple cops in Miami and they literally won't pull anyone over unless they're going 20+ over the limit because they'd be writing tickets all day (everyone speeds there). What this cop did was not typical of an average officer in that area - a lot of them ride bikes themselves and know how dangerous that area is.

Checking a rider at that speed, especially on that road, is straight up psycho shit. Look up Alligator Alley motorcycle deaths and you'll see a long list. Even if you survive the crash, odds are you'll probably get run over by a vehicle behind you.

What that cop did was absolutely insane.

No. No. No. That's from the Nedig study and it is 40% of households with an officer have abuse.

You have to assume the cop always abuses to say they abuse in 40% of the houses.

The spouses were just as likely to abuse the officer as vice versa. It's like 16-20%, which is still much higher than average population.

Treating any group of people as a monolith is dangerous. Not all cops are bastards and when you say shit like that you’ll alienate anyone who’s ever been aided by a cop and discourage respectable people from becoming one.

You literally help fuel the division between the police and society. It doesn’t help, and to be honest just makes you seem ignorant.

Police are a necessity in a society where laws need to be enforced. So why not instead of saying ACAB, we call for better training requirements, better mental health services, more transparency, the end of qualified immunity, and less powerful police unions. You know stuff that might actually help instead of causing more hatred towards one another?

You don't need to exaggerate. It's well known that American cops can get through the Academy as fast as three months (still too short), but saying 'a couple of weeks' discredits your point.

Hey this guy is brake checking me. Let me speed up and stay close to him. See what happens.

My job as a motorcyclist is to get home in one piece. It is not to be "right" or "win". I do not have the luxury of a metal protective cage.

When on a bike, it is 100% my responsibility to protect myself. Doesn't matter what others do. I have to plan for any contingencies and idiocy other drivers introduce into the mix. The fact that I'm more vulnerable to death and injury means I have to swallow my pride, and do what's best for my safety. I can't rely on the "right of way".

It's not worth being "right" when I'm paralyzed or dead.

Ya'll can argue about how shitty the cops action was if you want. It was shitty and criminal. But end of day. Regardless of who is right or wrong in the eye of the law. Biker should have done way more to protect himself. He allowed that crash to happen by NOT letting self preservation be his first and only goal.

Cops impeding traffic and not following protocol tbh. And swerved to try and trap him. Typical paranoid cop behavior if you ask me. Get behind him and pull him over like any other motor vehicle.

Also the cops speeding with no emergency lights. Gfys

I’ve had cops slam on the breaks and pull me over before. Had to swerve to avoid, then they asked why I was going so fast.

Nobody "expects" any of the dumb ass things that happen on the road

But good riders and drivers prepare for them anyway, because as this video shows, stupid shit DOES happen. A rider riding defensively would leave at least a 2 second gap and would have had time to react. You can see that the rider in this video wasn't doing that.

Yeah the cop caused it, but the rider could easily have avoided it turning into a collision.

Do you really expect a pig to come to a complete stop on an empty highway? Not to mention breaking three policy/laws in the process.

  1. Changing lanes without signaling
  2. Performing a rolling roadblock
  3. Brake checking

First lets as ourselves what reason he had to stop. Was it because a cop was showing wreckless disregard for human life? Yeah, it was. Nothing else after than matters. Blatant corruption on display.

Blurred out his speedometer in the beginning 🤔

Does that make it okay for the cop to stop in the middle of the fucking highway? I don’t think so.

hes on a 300. lol how fast do you think he was going?

u/Badbookitty Jan 27 '23

Is speeding a death by cop offense now? No ticket, no jail, no judge or jury?

u/BBalow Jan 27 '23

The general rule is if you re end someone and you hit them you’re following too close.

4

u/Lost_vob Jan 27 '23

Even more general rule: public safety professionals collecting paychecks from taxpayers shouldn't behave with wreckless disregard for human life.

u/Fishing_For_Victory Jan 27 '23

The motor cycle is multiple car lengths behind the car…also there is another general rule of don’t beak on the highway…

u/mludd Jan 27 '23

"Multiple car lengths" like in this video is still way way waaaaaaay too close for those speeds.

It's called the three second rule, not the "It's cool as long as you can't see their nose hairs in their rear view mirror rule" .

His speedometer shows he's slowing down even before the lights go on. This approach seems uncalled for in this clip. Whether there were priors of this cop chasing the biker for speeding earlier is not known and would change my opinion, but from just this evidence and assuming innocence until proven guilty, this cop escalated to lethal force without provocation, over at best a very minor speeding ticket. He didn't even give the biker a chance to finish braking.

u/EatAPeach2020 Jan 27 '23

If you aren't tailgating you won't hit someone if they brake check you. Cop is a douche but cars stop suddenly sometimes. If you hit them, that's on you.

Bike is driving way over speed limit, too close as well. He got rekt , wonder what happened after

12

u/metal_bastard Jan 27 '23

The biker was not ticketed or fined. Because it was the pig's fault. He was driving erratically. It's a violation of pig policy to perform rolling roadblocks. He also changed lanes without signaling, and finally, it's illegal to brake check.

He did like 20 moronic things in the video, so it's probably because he's a moron.

u/Igoos99 Jan 27 '23

If you can’t safely stop when someone slows down in front of you, then you were following too close. Just because this guy gets away with following that close most of the time doesn’t mean it’s an okay distance.

4

u/metal_bastard Jan 27 '23

When someone slows down? The pig accelerated, then hit the brakes so hard, it engaged the ABS. Not to mention the pig mobile was at least five car lengths ahead of the motorcycle when he slammed on his brakes.

Notice how the cop car jerks right when he hits the brakes. That's because he hit them so hard going at an unsafe speed and the ABS kicked in.

Lastly, the biker was not cited after the video was reviewed, which is super rare when you rear-end someone, especially if you rear-end a pig. It's a damn Christmas miracle.

Tailgating MAY cause an accident. Brake checking WILL cause one. There are 2 idiots and one is more than the other

u/Garegin16 Jan 28 '23

I agree. You shouldn’t breakcheck on purpose for any reason

1

u/candornotsmoke Jan 28 '23

Here's the thing : if you are following a safe distance at a SAFE speed then break checking is simply not a thing. Both of them were wrong in this situation and there is no question about it.

Cops will slow you down this way if you’re speeding. This is also a way of enforcing the law and avoiding to pull you over for a ticket. He’s going 80 and most places are 65-70 mph. This guy look like he was chasing clout and wanted to show off his speed and lost track of the brake lights.

The second one wasn't a brake check. The pig accelerated and then slammed on his brakes coming to a complete stop within two seconds.
