    There's not enough details there to know who was at fault. Here in Tennessee we've got a 3 foot law. You must maintain a 3 foot clearance of all two or three wheel vehicles. Sadly to say many people don't know the difference between 3 feet and a few inches. I guess we need to do what most Russians do and have cameras on our vehicles (bikes).

    I disagree. I think it is obvious that the boy exited the driveway without looking and the cop couldnt react in time.
    I could still be in jail now from hitting a boy who ran across the street without looking. Luckily he lived and I paid for his hospital bill. Kids are irrational creatures driven by emotional impulse. It takes time to develop reason and logic and how to live by them instead of by impulse. Most people never develop beyond their teenage ways.
