I would hope that the motorcyclist behaves like a robot and never walks on a crossing when it's amber when he isn't on his bike.

We're all human and make mistakes when we have other things on our minds, sure he was doing over 30 mph at times too?

You can keep it if this is city riding, one day soon this person is going to be human and hit someone riding like that, you've got to learn to live with people's eccentricities or do something else, you can't change the world on your own by posting videos and hoping everyone agrees with your own view.

Just my own personal view of what I thought was a careless attitude to folk trying to cross, I could see hundreds of yards away that they weren't going to make it, why fly up to them so aggressively?

This'll probably get wiped.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.

It's only your reaction to (I presume) the second video. I would agree to some extent, many pedestrians are downright stupid, but if you knock them over, it's you who will probably get the blame. I thought No1 showed quick thinking, cooperation and good manners in all 3.

Yeah I agree,your vid shows how it should be done Cocorico,RJ is going to get caught out with his filtering speeds as he uses London`s streets as his playground.Filtering may be legal,but that doesn`t mean some driver/passenger or a kid in the back isn`t going to open their door on him,or someone step out as you suggest.As my driving instructor said years ago as I approached a r/h turn where a pedestrian was poised to cross...let them cross,they have right of way!

Yes Mags I agree,cities are full of pedestrians trying to get from A to B with stuff on their minds,sights and sounds distracting them,some with poor eyesight,drunk,hung over,out of their tree,demented,some new to the city,many from abroad(bit like some drivers we have to look out for).30mph may be the speed limit,but there`s often an obvious lower advisory.
