The cyclist is a legitimate road user. He pays the same taxes as anyone else. It is unsafe to ride in close to parked cars as a door may open at any moment. If he has to use the centre of the road, so be it. It's not illegal, it's simple road awareness.

Is it any wonder the german people voted in the nazi party? I try and take people as i find them and every jew i have ever met has been repulsive, racist and down right rude. And that is not in any way meant to be racist, its just how i see things.

Let's be fair. Being an outrageous jerk, a bully that believes he can order everyone else about, and detain a fellow for having the audacity to use the public thoroughfare, has nothing to do with religion. Those folks come in all flavors. Having said that, I also believe that religious fundamentalism is frightening regardless of the faith from which its fanaticism sprang. Notice that human history has never seen a benevolent theocracy, and any man that believes a diety speaks directly to him and commands him to kill non-believers needs his friggin' head examined.

Nice response. Thank you. I knew when I saw the Orthodox man get out the car, people that don't like Jews were going to have a field day. This is the excuse as to why they don't like Jews...Watch old videos from the Jim Crow South of people "just trying to say how they see things" and the vitriol and ignorance is as obvious.

The cyclist is totally justified under New York State's law article 34, section 1234, sub-section a), which in summary states he is entitled to use the whole lane if potential hazards (opening car doors) are present, OR if it is not safe for the car and bicycle to travel side by side. LINK

This is not really the fault of the Judaic man. Ho hum - so many things wrong in this, from needless swearing to big cars to big girls blouses. Quite funny really.

Steve 00000 is bang on! Anyone who disagrees with that simply doesn't know what they are talking about.

Latest comment: Big Beardy Man is a bully and a hypocrite; hear how he tells someone to stop telling him what to do, whilst he(BBM) is telling the cyclist what to do? As big as he is, a shot in the nuts would have deflated the big windbag very quickly.

Driver's a complete twat - maybe the fact he believes in invisible men and child genital mutilation doesn't help - but the fact is he's a twat throwing his weight around.

They are both in the wrong. The cyclist for riding in the middle of the road and the Acidic Jew for acting so Acidic.

Nope. The cyclist is the unpleasant person. I ride a bike and I drive. I know how to ride a bike. The cyclist does not. He wants to provoke. The video is a decent proof.

Driver was being an arse. I don't know why so many drivers get so annoyed with cyclists: "You are not allowed to ride all over the street" Get over yourself
