This is almost certainly not a scam. She was trying to be predictable for the motorcyclist to go around. That driver really wasn't going that fast and he should have seen and avoided her easily. She fucked up because he obviously wasn't paying attention. It's like when you're walking down a hallway and you come face to face with someone. You both move to the side... but it's the same side. Then again and again. Eventually someone stays still and the other moves.

In countries with thinner road rules, this is generally how it works. Be predictable, be obvious. Of course it only works when drivers are paying attention.

He clearly has never seen a crosswalk or he would know to slow down and give pedestrians the right of way. If he had slowed down like he’s supposed to — she was far enough away for him to react appropriately. But nah, he’s a jackass.

u/Wonderful-Union-7592 Jun 30 '22

Different countries have different cultures around cross walks. In a lot of countries people cross the roads into continuously flowing traffic and the rule is to keep walking straight at a standard pace.

In this case the vehicle expected her to keep going, she stopped and he got confused about what she was doing, does he veer left and risk hitting her if she steps forward, does he veer right and hit her if she backs up out of fear, does he slam on the brakes and fly over his handle bars? If she would have kept straight he wouldn’t have hit her.

Also, he was breaking hard - you can see the front wheel wiggling. Pretty hard to steer at the same time. Breaking as hard as possible is rarely the worst thing to do, so that's what's often thought as a kneejerk reaction to shit going down on the road.

There is no way he would have flown over is handle bars. His pace wasn't that high and there was a lot of space between the woman and him. Imo it's only his fault because when there's a passenger there's a reason for motorcycles or similar vehicles to stop and not to try dodging the passenger

Continuing to move is a straight line at a steady speed is predictable; Suddenly stopping in the middle of the road in a lane with active traffic is unpredictable. As for avoiding the woman, how would he know if he moved to avoid, she wouldn't accidentally move in the same direction? He also would have had to swerve, and swerving on a bike can lead to losing control and wiping out.

The woman was dumb and should have waited for traffic to clear, or at least kept moving to get out of the way.

u/2pt_perversion Jun 30 '22

Exactly. In big Chinese cities a ton of people run red lights, they expect you to keep moving, and if you make eye contact they expect you to walk faster to get out of the way. Sucks but that's the way it is.

u/ben-_-_-dover Jun 30 '22

her stopping was unpredictable. All she had to was keep walking and he could go straight this is nothing compared to 2 people meeting each other in the halls way because they were going in adjacent directions. Her stopping was idiotic because it made both of them have to do work and her having to guess whether he was going to go around or not. Now say she kept walking like any sane human being, he could go straight and no one would be hurt.

And finally, one countries rules is not another's. Just because Britain drives on the left side doesn't mean you can drive on the left side in another country. Be predictable, do what you were already doing so the drivers don't have to guess, create less work for the drivers and that will lead to less accidents.

Are you serious? She's literally in a crosswalk. She's dumb as fuck for stopping, but in basically every country in the world that bothers to even have traffic laws, if there's a marked crosswalk you're supposed to fucking watch out and stop for people in them.

178

u/IN547148L3 Jun 29 '22

True, but there's also people who, I'm guessing in this instance, are going out of their way to cause an accident. It's not about watching anymore, and trust me when I say you don't want to stop walking in Chinese traffic. The most accepted way of walking in a cross walk in China is to keep walking at a steady pace. Don't slow down or speed up, and definitely don't stop.

140

u/RevengencerAlf Doge is still the #1 meme fight me Jun 29 '22

I think it's pretty obvious I think she did something wrong. Saying it's on purpose is a bit of a stretch without more info though. Some people are just stupid.

And also... even if the accepted cultural norm is to keep fucking walking (it is in the US too, honestly), as a driver you should still be prepared for someone in front of you stop. People get distracted, people slip and fall, shit happens. The rider had as long as she stood there staring to realize that she wasn't moving and at least start slowing down and even longer to see she was entering the crosswalk and be ready to react if needed.

I don't think she should have stopped, but have you ever walked in a hallway and someone is walking at you and you both turn in the same direction? Perhaps she was worried he was going to around her so she decided to not move, and the rider then would have the freedom to go around in either direction. Not making a right or wrong judgement on the matter, but its easy to see how something like that could happen.

In reality, the rider should have stopped for pedestrian traffic

At that distance she had plenty of time to stop, so the guy wouldnt have anticipated her standing in the middle of the road. At that speed, he couldnt have stopped. Things dont just “stop” they keep moving just slower

u/RevengencerAlf Doge is still the #1 meme fight me Jun 29 '22

He didn't show even a hint of reacting. No one is saying he needed to stop dead in half a second. There's a full 5 count from when he enters the frame and he would have been able to see her before that if he was paying attention. Both of them were idiots who reacted inappropriately and they both paid for it with a comically avoidable collision either one of them could have taken steps to prevent.

He could have easily swerved behind her at any point. She stopped the moment she noticed him riding at an insanely high speed. She might have thought that she shouldn't make unpredictable movements in case the man decides to serve from in front of her, but at that point she was just panicking.

The woman was impatient for trying to cross the road when the traffic light must've been green, even when she had committed the mistake of crossing the road at the green light, she should have kept moving instead of stopping in the middle of the road to look at the oncoming biker, that's where things went south. Also, the biker should have kept control over his bike's speed because he straight-up rammed his bike into the woman; What's a good driver/rider who's riding/driving on a busy road but can't control their motor vehicle?

The saying exists for a reason: instinct is weird and not always right. This was not the result of her taking a good long think about what to do. I can tell by her subtle teetering body language that she instinctively wanted to go both ways and ended up paralyzed by the choice.

The biker could swerve either way at the last second so her brain probably just locked up.

u/metal079 Jun 30 '22

Not everyone has the same instinct. I do the same thing, freeze if a car suddenly pops up when im crossing so I can make sure they noticed me before I keep walking. Might be a bad instinct but its not really something you can control.

This ain’t a scam. It’s a shitty biker ignoring the rules of the road.

She looks both ways coming into the crosswalk. He comes careening over the horizon clearly going faster than every other bike in the video. He doesn’t even slow down once he sees her. She pauses and gives him full beats to go in front or behind. But this jackass is going too fast to even move slightly to the right or left as mitigation.

1000% his fault.

Agreed. I also understand the instinct to stop moving in her situation. It’s sorta like when you’re walking toward someone and the two of you start doing that dance to get around each other.

Driver was in the wrong. That's a Zebra Crossing, we Brits invented them.

Drivers must stop if pedestrians are on the zebra crossing, and must slow down when approaching such a crossing incase someone is using it.

Zebra crossings were designed to improve the safety of pedestrians, not drivers. Also the crossing is well sign posted to allow drivers to see it way ahead of time.

u/AnchorMan82 Jun 29 '22

But it wouldn’t have been a sudden movement, it would have been the predictable continuation of her previous momentum vector.

u/Shemilf Jun 29 '22

She stood still for a full 2 seconds. That's enough time to react and just swerve behind her, not even in front..

u/Sentak_ Jun 30 '22

Not defending the driver as they show incompetence by not wearing a helmet, but you're supposed to have at least 3 seconds to react, he didn't try to move but for freak sake you keep your phase so does the bike and that does minimize risks, you stop biker just wonders wtf before being able to react, same things happens whit holes on the street sometimes you avoid them last second sometimes you pray your baby is ok (as well as your nuts if you have). That woman is not very smart and that guy well if he survived pretty slow reaction time and poor decisions.

What you're supposed to do is fucking stop at crosswalks when there's someone crossing.

He had 5 seconds to react the moment she started crossing the street. You always slow down when you see a pedestrian. That guy didn't have a poor reaction, he literally didn't care, it's clear as day what he should have done. If you're unable to react as a driver then you probably should stick to public transport.

Yeah. They don’t know the rules of the road either. What a homicidal jackass. Speeding faster than every other bike in the video, not wearing a helmet, not slowing at a crosswalk, not paying attention to the legit ONLY THING in his line of sight, not leaving enough room to react, and not even attempting to miss a FIXED target.

u/calebnf Jun 29 '22

Okay, but like, she doesn't know which way the bike is going to swerve. Since they're in the middle of the road, the biker could go either way. I'm sure you've had similar cringe reactions on the street with other pedestrians. She's probably stopping to let them go around. The biker is the real smooth brain here.

u/RIPSICLE421 Jun 29 '22 edited Jun 30 '22

I'm sorry but this is the worst logic. She clearly still had plenty of time to keep walking. Yeah the biker could've done something to minimise the risk as well, but that's like saying it's your fault for getting rear ended when someone else runs a red light.

Edit: based on most replies I'm getting I need to say that I agree both fucked up here. My point was more based on how baffling I find it to walk into the middle of a road, regardless of if you have right of way, and just standing there. Bike had enough time to slow down, and based on other comments in this thread, he clearly payed the price for it.

u/Pletterpet Jun 30 '22

Whatever the lady could do is irrelevent, it is a crosswalk and she has right of way. Driver completely at fault. Imagine if that was some kid instead of this lady. U still think the kid would deserve to get run over at a crosswalk?

However if this was a crosswalk witg stoplights and the lady is running red lights she is at fault.

U still stop/slow down instead of ramming them full speed, so driver is an idiot and dangerous driver regardless

u/Victor_AS Jun 30 '22

It's such a wide avenue I find it unlikely that it has no stoplights.

u/Chinse Jun 30 '22

It’s like the exact opposite of that though, because you stop (walking, or in a car) when someone is doing something stupid (not stopping for pedestrians, not stopping for a red light) and then get hit because of it anyway

20

u/-carb0n- 🍰 Jun 30 '22

at least in the US, the pedestrian always has the right of way, especially in a crosswalk.

if this lady just walked in to the middle of a freeway and froze, a case could be made that she’s at fault, but i think the fact that it’s a crosswalk and that he made no attempt to slow down would place the driver at legal fault every time.

Usually when i cross the road and traffic is coming i try to speed up instead of remaining stationary in the road wondering whether an oncoming car is gonna around or straight through me. Like sure, the driver could've done something. But that doesn't excuse sitting in the middle of a busy road.

When a pedestrian crosses the street at a crosswalk, the driver must yield, every time.

Yes, it’s possible she could’ve turned back and the biker steered to his right or paced up forward and the biker steered to his left colliding eventually. She probably just didn’t want to create confusion for the biker. Again, only her thought process.

u/kamekaze1024 Obamasjuicyass Jun 29 '22

Both are at fault. It’s very very very dumb to second guess yourself while you’re walking through traffic like that. But I know for a fact that in the US (may not be the case in the country this takes place) that the driver is required by law to stop pedestrians walking in the cross walk.

60

u/Shemilf Jun 29 '22

He's 100% at fault. Like no fucking doubt. She was crossing the street when she panicked when the biker was driving like a maniac. He even had 2 full seconds to react and he didn't even try to slow down.

You know this happened because the driver was too fast on wet road right? You can see them trying to slow down, some wet spray from the back wheel, and the bike wobbling because of it. Im guessing it was sliding since there was a loss of control, and she probably didnt know which way to go because of that wobble.

Will admit though, that was a suspicious amount of time to wait in the middle of the road
