A Las Vegas cop rear ends a biker and then shouts him down to make out it's the riders fault.

Fortunately stats show that being hit in the rear is only about 2% of all reported accidents.
That doesn't mean one should be complacent. One should always in a traffic situation be aware of whats happening around one even at the rear.
I always show rear braking even if I am just slowing by de acceleration. without showing rear brakes how is the car behind going to know that you are slowing. Even when stopped I use my rear lights to flash if I have a car approaching to my rear and in the dark I stay away from being behind the lights of the car stopped in front of me
. One cant be to careful.

Cop Rear Ends Biker .
Ooops ! I was expecting a different sort of video.
... Like a forfeit instead of an on-the-spot fine...

The rider acted very well , the police like all that respect , I don"t think I could have done the same even with our British reserve ! . He could have said that the law states if you are hit from behind the guy - or lady is to close , a proper distance should be there at all times . The biker could have reported the incident , but would he have got any justice here or there in the U.S. - I doubt it , and given the minor damage he was possibly correct , after -all he could have met the cop again , and would he be in a good mood ? probably not .

In many countries the police are feared more than the criminals. The US is rapidly becoming one of those states. Best not to argue with a cop on the street – he might shoot you* and claim it was necessary.
*ALL US cops are heavily armed (typically 2 side-arms, and a shotgun and/or assault rifle in the car), and shootings of unarmed persons are on a rapid rise.

Inexperienced or nervous rider saw a car indicating (but who had clearly seen him & halted) & stopped in his lane... everything textbook (though a bit OTT) apart from the cop who should be experienced enough to read the situation. My rule, never brake unless you have to... I've had 2 people run into the back of me, both in situations where I didn't have a choice.
In the UK the bike would have been riding down the white line, the car wouldn't have indicated & pulled straight across but the rider would have swerved & avoided it... & the cop, having seen it, would've done the driver for undue care... OK, I made the last bit up.
Thank god we allow filtering! It's far safer than waiting for the impact.
