Don't assume that all cyclist are bad most of us follow the laws. But after seeing this video I would support a law requiring all cars/trucks/motorcycles to have black boxes. Existing vehicles to have them put in or be fined for non-compliance. I'm tired of cyclists getting killed, hit, victim of hit and runs as a result of an inattentive/impaired driver. What pisses me off about this video is nobody stopped to help the two cyclists.
1) it might not be a safe place to stop.
2) The folks who came along after might just have seen the cyclists with their bikes and not thought that anyone had been hit. Cyclists do crash or have a mechanical.
3) People rarely will help. Tons of social psych studies on this topic. A few decades ago a woman in NYC was raped in a courtyard. Plenty of people heard her cries and screams and no one helped. When you hear of someone doing something extraordinary it makes the news.
