I have a feeling that there is more to this than just road rage.

Nonetheless sad situation.
It is strange how things in this country often turn out to be a family murder after everybody else thought it was just criminal murder. But this one will be interresting.
That's the nice thing about court cases, the truth (mostly) comes out.

But the problem here most probably will be that there will only be one side to the story . One bloke will not be telling his story this time .

Whatever the facts, a lot of peoples lives have been changed by people not being able to control their anger and the need to "teach someone a lesson".

The simple act of just driving on and calling the other a dumb ass would have saved so much heart ache...

Very sad, condolences to all affected.

That is why they say, if you pull a weapon you must be prepared to use it (first)........

Hopefully because it was peak hour traffic someone would have seen what happens.

Might not be able to describe what happened before this, but at least if some witnesses can give their account it would help clear up who started it and who acted in self defense.

Amazing how people jump to conclusions although they don't know the facts at all. I was about to type they know jack shit, but that would probably offend some.

I find it totally useless to comment  on the theorie of what went wrong.

The only thing it reminds me of is that it is not worth it to get involved in road rage. A sad waste of one life and destruction of another and both their families future.

You have a point - and speculation and assumptions aside - the above comment is what it boils down to.

the guy's bike didn't have a numberplate.

We may never know the truth because this 'issue' between the two could have started way up the road, but they only came together here due to traffic conditions.

No matter how it turns out, its sad and families will be grieving.

No matter what the stupid driver did to provoke the biker he got what he deserved for getting off his bike and pulling a gun.

Hope the driver recovers.

There must have been witnesses o the story will come out. Either way I think the biker is not that innocent in all this.

Again, speculation is not in order.
The left mirror on the bike doesn't appear to be in the right place? Was it clipped perhaps?

Tell me I am not the only one seeing this....



Coincidence....?

But seriously. If the initial reports are right and the biker stop and walked to the guy in the car gun drawn then I have very little sympathy.

Don't think the biker would have gotten off his bike if it was a family murder.

I don't understand why bikers get road rage, you have to assume no one sees you and look out for yourself, you're the vunerable one.

Not useless in my opinion.  Reading through the thread and theories it opens my mind as to what the possible scenarios are.

Facts we know:
- Both were armed
- Biker killed by gun shot
- Cager seriously injured (most likely shot and unlikely from a fist fight or accident)
- Biker got off his bike.

What we don't know:
- What happened before this to escalate into a shooting
- If there is a prior relationship between the two
- If the biker approached the vehicle with gun in hand or holstered
- how many shots were fired and who shot first
- if anyone shot in self defense or rage

That it could have been avoided and a sad loss of life is sad.

This whole incident must be due to the biker not having a plate on his bike.

Seriously, I know of another biker without a plate who almost got shot in the back   :peepwall:  :biggrin:

Slightly off topic - My GOOD Buddy posted on Facebook last night

He was involved in a Taxi indecent , where he was cut-off

He follows the Guy to the next robot and jumps out of his car to go tell the Guy he is a F P**S

SO black guy jumps out with a KNIFE and chases my Buddy across the robot.

In his attempt to Flee he RIPS his Achilles in left foot and tears tendons in right knee


WHAT THE FARK my buddy were you thinking

Now he wants to track the guy down and SUE him - Double WTF

THIS is a True Story

Feel sorry he got hurt - But he could have gotten stabbed
