    One of the worst problems here is a stupid law that states the most vulnerable road user is the most protected, ie a motorcyclist hits a pedestrian, he's at fault, regardless of the fact that said pedestrian may have just stepped out in front of him, leaving him no room to stop. Same applies with car/motorcycle, truck, bus/car and so on. It tend to make pedestrians think they are invincible!

    I had an experience where a grandmother was walking her 3y/o grandson across a busy road and she was teaching him to put his hand up for me to stop. Luckily I was riding; imagine if it was an 18 wheeler. Can a three y/o judge the stopping distance required by an 18 wheeler?

    BTW, I had a 6 second gap in front of me.

    I'm not complaining, I am dealing/have dealt with it, CUNT! I was merely pointing out what happens in other parts of the world!
