I can see only one possible way the driver could have helped diffuse this and that was to slow way down when he saw the rider trying to stop him - before the rider got in front of him. Illegal as it may have been. But I don't know that he totally understood what the biker wanted him to do. And I think the biker took it as defiance. For sure, the whole idea of "closing down the highway" is completely ridiculous.

attempted to escape and damage his vehicle (or try to kill him) vs. get his plate and let the police address it. No sympathy to the bikers. This man feared for his life through the entire video.

I saw a police or DA or someone say something to the effect, "of course we always recommend trying to get out of those situations without hurting people if possible." I have yet to see anyone on the law enforcement side cast blame to the SUV driver.

I used to swim with manta rays - they are very peaceful animals. One day I cornered one against a rock face. Almost cost me my life...but 100% my mistake.
