From what I read in various news account, the bikers were trying to shut down the highway. This dad was the only one resisting and still driving. You can see in all the video he was the only car on the road. From there on, is down hill.

Actually, he's not the only one. There's a white van that pushes through the group.

The bikers were doing illegal things, yes. As a responsible dad with your wife and child in the car, I would have pulled over when everyone else were pulling over. Let the gang pass. Is just not worth the confrontation. Especially since he was celebrating their anniversary. Is not exactly a life and death situation that he really had to be at whatever place they were going. Celebrating five minutes latter probably would not have mattered.

To me, that is a major lapse of judgement on the dad's part. Is pointless to blame the bikers. You got your family with you, take care of your family before challenging these bikers.

I think there's blame on both sides, but I can see no justification for plowing a biker under your SUV.

From the reports I heard, he did in fact stop after the one biker stopped short - w/o enough time for the SUV to avoid him - and got hit. Then, it appears bikers began slashing his tires. Would you stay there and wait patiently for the cops to come?

I still haven't confirmed the slashed tires. But even so, running away to save your tires doesn't justify plowing someone under.

I really doubt he was running over someone to protect his tires. These biker gangs have become a real problem in and around NYC. It was obvious that the biker who first got tapped by the SUV was slowing up and watching behind himself on purpose. It would be long ago, and in the NYC area, for me to have a young wife and child to protect, but God help the bikers who tried to do harm, or who appeared to be trying to do harm. This comes under the heading of karma, or TS.
