That driver may as well hand their licence in now, that said I couldn’t see if he had blues and twos on, but I’m guessing he was after the other scrote on the trail bike.

Totally agree, the Enduro rider had a lucky break there 'cos the bike-cop was chasing him down for sure imho.

However, the car driver who took out the copper seemed to do so almost intentionally??

Good to see the poor bloke was able to stand, after his somersault.

Car drivers fault simple as that. No indication, no visual check around him, turned quickly and deliberately. = negligence on the road. To me the copper is a highly skilled rider, he's not going to make rookie mistake like not putting on blues, looks like he was simply filtering past like anyone of us do.

That driver MISSED a hugh YELLOW bike...what would he of done if it was us in all black leathers hunched up on a small black sports bike.

This is why I think high viz jackets are a waste of time. They only work if someone is bothered to look.

Again very true. But i guess it means you are out to be seen and also gives pieve of mind. Personally i wear high vis now through commuting times but then again I also put on my full beams when filtering which has helped a few times

I think it comes down to mental approach.
I don't think riders who are inclined to wear hi-viz are out to cause carnage. Two-piece leathers vs. a one-piece, etc......you dress according to how you're going to ride.

As for drivers, I don't think a bike/rider "registers" with car drivers in the same way a car does. It's not taken as a threat.
Size matters, I guess.
