GRAPHIC VIDEO: Unchill Bro with road rage plows his car over a pack of Critical Mass bicyclists
At about the 50 second mark of this video, you witness a car plowing thru a pack of bikers. Not dudes on motorcycles, but a gang of fun loving bicyclists who are part of a global group called 'Critical Mass.' From what I understand, Critical Mass is a 'protest group' that hates cars and modern society, so they ride around town in a huge pack to make every1's life more miserable while they are stuck in traffic behind bikers. It is supposed to send a message abt how 'bikes are taking back the city, yall!' Personally, I have rlly bad road rage against other ppl in cars... but nothing gets my blood boiling more than a bicyclist/biker bro who thinks that he 'has more rights than me.'
Have yall ever encountered some of the alts in Critical Mass in ur local city? Are they unchill bros, or just random biker dudes?
Do bicyclists think that they have more rights than they actually possess?
Have u ever ran over somebody, then hid/buried their dead body so that no1 found out abt it?
Is it time to 'end' Critical Mass bc they ruin the streets + put every1 in harm's way?
Here is a little bit abt Critical Mass [via wikipedia]
Critical Mass rides have been perceived as protest activities. A 2006 New Yorker magazine article described Critical Mass' activity in New York City as "monthly political-protest rides", and characterized Critical Mass as a part of a social movement; and the UK e-zine Urban75, which advertises as well as publishes photographs of the Critical Mass event in London, describes this as "the monthly protest by cyclists reclaiming the streets of London." Critical Mass participants have insisted that these events should be viewed as "celebrations" and spontaneous gatherings, and not as protests or organized demonstrations. This stance allows Critical Mass to argue a legal position that its events can occur without advance notification of local police.
Sorta wonder if the road rage bro who plowed them over 'more than made up for' drivers everywhere who have to 'put up with Critical Mass bullshit' on a monthly basis...
Apparently Critical Mass members usually don't follow traffic laws, and have a bunch of complex strategies to 'piss off drivers.'
Because Critical Mass takes place without an official route or sanction, participants in some cities have sometimes practiced a tactic known as "corking" in order to maintain the cohesion of the group. This tactic consists of a few riders blocking traffic from side roads so that the mass can freely proceed through red lights without interruption. Corking allows the mass to engage in a variety of activities, such as forming a cyclone, lifting their bikes in a tradition known as a "Bike Lift" (in Chicago this is referred to as a Chicago hold-up), or to perform a "die-in" where riders lie on the ground with their bikes to symbolise cyclist deaths and injuries caused by automobiles, very popular in Montreal. The "Corks" sometimes take advantage of their time corking to distribute fliers.
Did Critical Mass 'do this to themselves' because they don't obey traffic laws?
Did the bro in this car 'get corked'?
Do yall ever want to 'uncork' and unchill biker bro?
Is it time for cities to rally against bike protests?
Are bike protests 'the new raves' [via ppl getting killed]?
R u afraid to ride ur bike because some1 in a car will run over ur ass?
Should 'this ass hole' go 2 jail for what he did?
Do Critical Mass bicyclists think that they are above society's laws?
Are traffic laws meant to 'keep every1 safe' or 'promote the automobile industry'?
Are bros who drive cars more chill than bike bros?
Should local governments take away the rights of illegal bicycle gangs ruining traffic patterns?
Are bikes 4 ppl who are 'too poor 2 own cars and own property in suburbia'?
Can we construct an underground tunnel system for bicycle riders so humans who contribute 2 society never have 2 see crusty ppl on bikes?
