EVER get the impression some people just want to blame the motorcyclist for any accident, no matter what?
Even when the car driver involved has done something ridiculous, like turn suddenly across three lanes of traffic without indicating or apparently looking?
The picture above shows the moment just before impact when a driver did just that. The full video, below, is distressing to watch, because the rider’s helmet flies over the roof the car - but somehow he appears to be left stunned but not seriously hurt by the crash.
Despite the obvious errors by the driver, some people are blaming the rider for the crash. An Aol news story on it includes a poll asking readers who is at fault – and roughly one in eight respondents (12%) currently blame the rider.

Who do you think is to blame?
