He's going way faster than the white car. They slow the video down once it cuts to the crash. You can tell from the time stamp at the bottom and the fact that it starts skipping from frame to frame.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Not saying that the car||
Not saying that the car driver isn't at fault here, but it also looks like an inexperienced/unaware rider that was going way too fast played a lot in to this crash.
As a rider, you have to understand that it's incredibly easy for cars to misjudge your closing speed. If you pause it at around 9-10 sec in, the rider appears to be a pretty small speck in the distance. If you were able to see the same angle 1-2 seconds earlier when the car first started moving, the rider would be damn near out of site. This rider was going entirely too fast for the road he was on which doesn't leave him enough time to react to the conditions in front of him.
An experienced rider would have seen that there was a bus in the road (limited sight distance) and an intersection coming up and adjusted his speed accordingly. Typically when I see that there is a car waiting to enter the road, at the very least I will cover my front brake with my fingers so that I am ready to start braking at a moments notice. He has at least 2-3 seconds between when the car starts moving and the collision. If he had been more aware and going a safer speed, he could have easily brought the speed of the bike down a lot more and likely avoided the incident entirely. Instead, it looks like he doesn't even start braking until the car is about halfway into his lane, at which point its too late. All he has time to do is grab a handful of brake which sends him over the handlebars and into the road.

Ahh man, I was on my flight back from Dallas when this was posted. :(

I would just ask the ticket office if you could transfer them. They seem to be the only ones who will know for sure.
Be sure to let us know the answer!

Know of any students named codeBLUE11?
Let me know!
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Hmmm...||
Hmmm...I do still have a valid M-card (at least it still works to get me into north campus buildings). I wonder if I could still get a ticket. I'd have to be going to help you out with the ride.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I graduated last year so I'm||
I graduated last year so I'm guessing I won't have access to student tix anymore. If someone is able to help me get a reasonably priced ticket (students?), then I might be able to help you out with the ride situation from Ann Arbor. Of course I'd pay, I'm just looking for something <$200. You shouldn't end up having to pay for gas or anything, so it'd be win-win.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||If they end up being||
If they end up being available then I'm definitely interested!
Cheered the team on in Auburn Hills and at both games in Dallas, so I can't stop now! I have a way there, but am just having a hard time finding tickets in my price range. Please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org

Good work, but I still like your December one the best so far!
Maybe it's because I normally put the wallpaper up on my work computer, but I like the clean, crisp look a lot better than the cartoony look of this one.

Stopping at chick-fil-a on my way back from Columbus, getting wasted off of rum when I get home. Wasted me will decide what comes next

I might be picking up a last minute ticket tonight and would also be going solo.
If you still want a co-pilot/driver (or anyone else does for that matter), I wouldn't mind splitting the gas and having someone else along for the ride.
Feel free to give me a shout at email@example.com

Thanks for the info....this actually sounds pretty awesome! My normal tailgate and just about everyone I know is out off town, so this should beat watching the game alone. Anyone else thinking about going?

Haha, seeing as how the pencil owner has clearly gone a substantial amount of time without realizing his pencil says GO STAEE! , I'm pretty sure that it is someone that posseses all three of these characteristics, aka a typical sparty football player.
Anyways, great work as always, monuMental, can't wait to see the big reveal of your special 'project'!

Love it. Wallpapered so that my Michigan State cubemate has to look at it all week.
Only problem is that if you've ground down a pencil that much, there's bound to be some eraser wear!

Walked down Hoover 20 minutes before the game, second scalper I talked to offered me a student ticket (Row 32) for $30, I talked him down to $25 and strutted into the stadium.
