Hit and Run Limousine Driver Attacked For Striking Bike Messenger

A New York City bicycle messenger had enough yesterday and allegedly chased down a driver that had struck him and kept going. Upon catching up to the vehicle, a limousine, he allegedly shattered the vehicle's windshield and gave the driver a black eye. "He hit me and kept going," he told the New York Post. "I'm sick of this." While I do not condone the bicyclist's conduct, I am not surprised that he responded in the way he allegedly did. Many urban bicyclists are sick and tired of drivers acting cavalierly with their lives and with the seeming indifference some police officers have regarding bike accidents. Until these two things change, and until our traffic infrastructures better accommodate bicycles, I am afraid more incidents like this are likely, especially in places like New York and Chicago.

The story I have linked to is from the New York Post. It is a terribly written piece which blatantly favors the driver's point of view. There seems to be little acknowledgment or sympathy for the fact that the bicyclist was hit by a car! In any event, here is a link to the full story.

Thanks to Kelvin Mulcky for making me aware of this story.

  24. May be it would be a bicyclist's mistake this time. But there is one point always stuck in our mind that the poor one is always innocent. I am not satisfied by the statement that limousine drivers are not properly trained. In Car Service Long Island Drivers are specially trained to provide customers services of their choice.

  47. I would sooner trust a restored Limo made prior to the 70's than any newer one! And htey are cooler, like a 54' Caddy limo I once rode in! Not as much electronic junk,sensors and PCM's to short out or send fuel the other way like what happened several years ago in a car fire, I think it was also a Limo, made in the 80's. Glad the women got out ok! What a scare!
