Obvious to me was that the cop was tailgating to run the tags prior to stopping the bike for some random infraction.
It just bit him in the ass, and he tried to play it off.
It looks like he was just letting the car in the left lane with it's blinker on merge in front of him...unless I'm missing something?He was riding like an asshat, we also have a huge problem with byker boyz running from the cops in Vegas. The cop was probably just trying to get the plate number before lights went on.
Also seems like he was trying to get hit.
Before the white car in the left lane turned on the blinker, the distance between the bike and the car in front is more than 1-car length but less than 2-car length (to my eye). That's a completely OK following distance.The cop is in the wrong, but i don't understand why the rider came to a complete stop when the car in front was still moving forward. It's true that the wide angle makes the car look farther, but if you use the car to the left as a reference point then the car in front is still at least 2 car-lengths away.
