Beware of Fast Driving BMWs

Driving on a city road as if Frank Martin (from The Transporter film series) is chasing you is never a good idea and it can get you and other people in trouble or even worse, as was the case with this BMW owner.

The accident happened in Taiwan, with the footage showing the BMW driver knocking down a bicyclist, who we’re not sure if he was crossing the road from a side street or if he was in front of the car at the time.

Either way, he seems to have escaped with not so severe injuries as he slid on top of the car after the impact.

What Exactly Was this (Russian) Bicyclist Trying to Do?

Who knows why, though we’re pretty sure you can think of a few reasons if you try hard enough, but a bicyclist travelling on the road tried to jump over a car that was slowly heading towards him.

And yes, as you can imagine even without taking a look at the video shot from a vehicle following on from behind, the biker’s incomprehensible move ended in pain and lots of it.

After the damage he caused to the small hatchback, we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the driver had some more pain to offer him….

Meanwhile in Russia: ATV Fled from Rider

The wheelie was successful for about half a second, but then the ATV decided it had just about enough and dropped the rider continuing on its own.

A Benny Hill-style chase ensured with the owner of the quad bike running behind it and eventually catching up to the ATV.
