A young guy with a girl in the car speeding down a narrow street. What an idiot.
He'll be alright. I'm sure dad will buy him a new one.
Thankfully it looks like no one got hurt.
Wow, it got airborne.
Didn't the Lamborghini have the right of way?
I'd call that a big yes.
The Lambo had right of way, but it would appear there is more to this story: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2593236/Lamborghini-Aventador-worth-300-000-speed-215mph-wrecked.html
I am not sure I see the "proof" in that link that he was at fault. While I do agree that driving "aggressively" in London is not a smart move, unless his speed was extremely excessive I still think the Mazda owner pulled out in front of him. Disclaimer: I do not know how fast he was going or the speed limit on that street.
Still, It seems the public wants to make this guy the villain simply because he is young, has a (presumably) beautiful woman with him and is driving a vehicle most of us will never own or drive. That hardly seems fair. I am sure there are accidents involving Teslas where the jealous masses would pile on similarly. The Tesla isn't nearly as expensive but for a large percentage of the population it might as well be priced the same as its more than they can afford and this can lead to the same reaction based on the envy that might result.
- the right of way only extends as far as the other party can predict.
- 2 dumbasses do not make a right
Normal urban speed limit is 30mph, 14 to 15 yards per second. There's a roundabout 100 yards away from the intersection so the estate driver should have been able to see the car.
But the estate driver can reasonably, although foolishly, expect that the Lamborghini driver won't accelerate rapidly beyond the speed limit.
We can't see what happened on the road before the crash, so we can start from an assumption of fault of the Mazda driver but it's not necessarily the case.
Surviving motorcyclists no longer think in terms of 'right of way'. If everyone drove like they were on a mc, the world would be a safer place.
Indeed. I am absolutely certain everyone is out to kill me when I am on my bike; doubly so when I'm taking my daughter to school.
Does he need injury Lawyer?
Lola - I hope I'm not reading that you take your daughter to school on your bike
It's painful to watch for car lovers, but by far the most important thing is that nobody was injured in this. The Aventador should have been going slower, the Mazda shouldn't have pulled out when it wasn't safe, at least it didn't end worse.
