Every bicyclist in town, and all the managers at Miami-Dade Transit, need to watch a video showing a Miami-Dade bus follow and, apparently, strike a bicyclist on Biscayne Boulevard. Kendall cyclist Pier Raccuglia, whose injuries and subsequent lawsuit over the Jan. 3, 2009 incident were reported last week in Miami New Times, privately posted the video on YouTube here: Bus and biker on Biscayne Boulevard. Thanks to Felipe Azenha for bringing the four-minute video to light at Transit Miami. Note the blaring horn as the bus passes the cyclist after his turn from 14th Street onto Biscayne, and watch carefully as the bus overtakes the rider a second time a few blocks south. Then listen as the bus driver loudly asserts to her passengers her own spin on what happened. Scary stuff!
