    Crikey.

    Still, it's America - at least he didn't shoot you instead.

    Heard anything back from the cop shop yet?

    Hilarious comments. There are some seriously unhappy children out there.

    That crash looked as though the driver deliberately drove into the cyclists. Pretty indefensible if you ask me - it even looked like the cyclists were in a dedicated lane - with perennial problem of prats parking in it too. Hope that driver is currently getting reamed in prison somewhere.

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!

    A number of the comments note that it's a parking lane, not a cycle lane, hence the parking.
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    Somehwat peculiar comment in there -
    Campbell said the accident highlights the need for a bike lane in that area, an idea that Caltrans and the cities of Oakland and Berkeley have been working on.

    No, I don't think this incident highlights a need for a bike lane in the area. If it had been an accident, in some way due to the nature of the road, then it may have highlighted the need for a bike lane. What this highlights is the need for the driver to not be allowed to be in a position to drive a car on public roads.
