It kind of looks like he had the light in his favor. But, it is tough to tell as we don't really see the intersection that well. As the video goes along, the other motorists start moving - I definitely think he is calling her stupid though......

He's exceedingly lucky - no gear, no helmet - WOW!

Amen to the lucky. He's like a freaking gymnist or a cat. They always seem to land on their feet! I think he's definitely calling her stupid.

Since we can't see the light we don't really know who had the right of way. But even if he did good risk management would have him watching for people running the lights. It is pretty easy to see someone running that close if you look. I've avoided that same situation more than a few times. I cover the brakes now for almost ever instance of a left turn or someone pulling into traffic. Watching like a hawk is a given at intersections.

For a scooter right of way is a nice theory but expecting it or living by it could lead to disaster.....
