    The SUV driver is completely justified in driving over the first motorcycles as he was clearly in fear of his and his families lives. I hope he gets a huge settlement from any of the motorcyclists unlawfully detaining him.

    However, once he saw the motorcycles catching him, he should never have moved his car close to the other cars. He should have known to leave space, just as you should at any stoplight or stop sign in bad neighborhoods. Leave yourself an escape route . All of the bikers that surrounded the car and detained him should be arrested and/or fined. They knew better.

    No one has ever asked this motorcycle club why they are using all 3 lanes of the highway at the start of this incident. They may have been just out for a fun time and group ride but practice some civility and leave one lane of the highway open for other vehicles.
