    I am always glad to see situations where video surveillance actually helps normal people.

    of course, the delicious irony was that the class in question was on a field trip to study the effects of video surveillance in public areas.

Wow, being both a cyclist AND a driver here in Vancouver, I’m always careful to be considerate to the other… I always shoulder check as a cyclist and as a driver, and I leave lots of room and/or slow down as I’m passing a cyclist. But some cyclists, and some drivers, are just dumb. And then there are people like the two guys on that site, the recent one and the one last year, who are just plain malicious. It’s one thing to be careless and stupid, but it’s another thing to deliberately get out of your car and attack a cyclist. I’m glad to see that in the first instance some passers-by got involved. I’m a bit saddened that the video did not seem to show any of the strangers jumping into the fray as my friends and I would have done… I’d be curious to know whether there’s some relationship between the area of each of these attacks and the likelihood of passers-by intervening.
