if that was anyone else other then a trooper there would be charges instantly, no brakes no attempt to swerve, that trooper wasn't even looking at the road at the time of approach or impact. what's to investigate ??
I'm sure he will be punished for this and the bikers will get paid. He will get a ticket just like the rest of us would. It's things like this take make me worry about my daughter, who is about to start drivers Ed.
His eye's certainly weren't on the road. No Brakes, No Swerve, No Nothin'! He just plowed right into the bike. Texting, Phone or ASLEEP!! Assh**e!! I'd sue the crap out of the state for that one. Just to prove a point.
Definitely not paying attention so no excuses there but know this about dash cams, they will absolutely alter the perceptions of speed based on the zoom of the camera, trust me I had one on my dash for years... Please don't take that comment as an excuse for the action that we saw... It actually makes it worse, I think he was probably going slower than we think but that makes you ask even harder how he did not see the bike! Bot's Im with ya on a couple of after contact questions... 1. Why so long to stop, 2. Why so long to turn emergency lights on... 3. Backing up after running over bike may not be the best course of action! He might have been looking out an open drivers door I dont know but it just doesn't look good...
