Don't you just love how the couple the guy on the bike stopped to let pass. Just walked away after he got hit like nothing had happened..

It's breathtaking how narcissistic people can be. Their reaction was, "Thanks for stopping for us so you could get struck from behind by a taxi, risking injury and severe property damage. Sucks to be you. Toodles!"

Let's hope karma bites them for their lack of concern.

+1 The taxi driver was giving his excuse at the end and I could not hear it but at least he said he was sorry. Good Lord!

Sounded like his fare was banging on the partition between the back and front to tell him something, and he turned his head to find out what they wanted. That's when the accident happened.

Glad the rider was not injured.

The pedestrians did't even give a f###, if the bike hadn't been there they would have been struck instead. What stupid driver takes his eyes off the road at a crossing.

+1 If you have to turn around don't you push you foot on the brake hard to make sure the car doesn't move? WTH?

If you're going to be that disengaged in the driving maybe you should move that lever thing from D to P
