A very short video of mine. Happened this evening on my commute home.

I have zero sympathies for the cyclist.

And yes, I have a dull as fook title thingy. I need to come up with a logo...

I've always wanted to see some instant justice for a cyclist running a red light (Obviously not get hurt, but a nice little reminder that they're idiots). They run stop signs all the time around here.

Shared your video on snowcat's page because I know he hates cyclists because of shit like this. Hope you don't mind!
Ah, you're the 'culprit' - got a sudden wee surge of subscriptions last night [doubled my count to 26! ;) ].

And it's a vlog - it's there to be shared :)

Who, me? Yup :)

As a disclaimer: if he had been actually been injured, I'd not have posted.

And telling his mates, the bus driver was the idiot.

Anyway, even if he genuinely missed the red light, how the hell do you not spot a double decker bus?!

Always watermark videos. I was sent this by a Facebook group who stole it

who was the group?

I was only at a small 12 subscribers when I posted it, getting an average of 10 views. I had zero clue that it would get so popular [now at 44k views]

And I keep on putting off making a watermark because I have zero clue on what to make it look like :/

Ah, cheers.
seesh, that has 176k views and 2k shares. Don't think I'd be able to cope with that much interaction.

And promoted video. Shucks

They linked to it, rather thsn copied it for themselves. I watch a few vids on the group. Comments are a tad retarded on all the vids, often amusingly!

He was a good 3 or 4 seconds from the light when it turned red, with another 30m to go. Then there is a 20m 2 or 3 second space just to get to the crossing, and the crossing would take a few seconds. What made him think he could make this?

Even if he'd beaten the bus, he would have been splattered by the taxis. He was real lucky he hit the side of that bus, it probably saved him.

Could be a troll but the cyclist did comment on the video

I saw that, but when those lights changed to amber, he should have been slowing and braking gently. Instead he tried to go for it for some reason with such a massive gap in distance and no time to cover it, and then had to brake hard and snapped his cable. That's a fair number of instances of user error
