That's how they do those insurance scams, setting up that rider like that crap cop did. That cop is definitely at fault and I can't think of one violation he could write a ticket for that would have stuck in court. That rider got way too subservient for his own good. I viewed that several times and allowing for his camera magnifying distances, he was where I would have been riding and doing the same things, given the same conditions: heavy traffic, wet pavement, cold tires, night, etc..

Sometimes we see and believe what we WANT to believe...

You're partially right on the insurance scam, but your cause and effect is about 180' in the wrong direction... Since the driver in the rear is almost ALWAYS at fault, the actual scammer in the scenario is ALWAYS the front car...

It is quite common and works like this:

The car in front (motorcycle in this case) who is in the right lane starts creating distance between the car in front of him and himself.

Then he gets in front of the "Victim" car (the officer in this case) and starts to gently accelerate to close the distance between his vehicle and the one in front of him.

The Victim car sees a chance to gain some ground, starts to change lanes to pull in BEHIND the scammer, and as he turns his head to check his blind spot, the scammer hits his brakes, causing a collision that generally ends with the Victim car being found at fault for following too close... It's a great scam! Came from Eastern Europe or so I'm told!

Ricz, I can't believe you would stop a motorcycle 3 to 4 car lengths behind the car in front of you (as in this video) as you stated you would have unless you had a death wish!!!

I know the popular thing is to blame the "Crap cop" as you put it and it's fun to jump on that band wagon, but the producer of this video fooled you big time!!!

Victims of scams don't produce videos like this... Losers with agendas do...

Watch it one more time maybe????

I don't know what the actual law reads in Vegas, but in many other states the driver in the rear is always at fault. Scams have to have a patsy that is willing to be led into the scam. Was the cop a patsy? No telling and in court probably not relevant. He should have known better and he had options that didn't include following so close that he wound up tagging the vehicle ahead of him. He's LE for crying out loud. You don't get so close to another vehicle, let alone a motorcycle, that you can't maintain adequate stopping distance in an emergency, scam or no scam.
Thing is, the cop knew it. His banter, the thrust of his conversation and his demeanor all sounded like a kid with crumbs all over his face trying to get out of being punished for getting caught in the cookie jar.
Then, just what is the scam? The bikee drove away. Was the scam "let's see if I can get a cop to rear end me in traffic, not hard enough to kill or maim or even knock me off, then let's see, I'll act all scared and whatnot and then, having survived and created a fantastic potential for a lawsuit on camera, I'll shake his hand and drive off so I can put the vid on the interwebs."
Worst scam ever!

I am not a cop hater but this is disgusting. That cop basically intimidated that rider into driving away without filing a report. Hopefully somebody sees this video and does something about it.

BT, to respond to your previous post....

I'm aware how those scams work and I should have worded my post differently. After hitting the bike, the cop did all he could to transfer the blame to the rider in order to avoid a report and being held responsible. That cop is a scammer in my book - among other things. He's probably a good poker player.

The rider's camera appears to have a wide angle lens which exaggerates distances. I have viewed that video many, many times and when you dial in the perspective, the bike was slightly less than a car length from the car that was moving over to be in front of him. Yes, the rider slowed, but as far as I can tell, he did not slam on his brakes as the cop inferred.

When I'm in Portland traffic, I allow more than sufficient space between me and the car in front (just like that rider) as you never know what those a$$hole$ are going to do. Remember; Tailgaters makes ends meet. Saw on the news last night that Portland drivers rank 9th in the nation as the worst drivers. If I had to describe our drivers using only one word, it would be "territorial."
