Rider Helping Pedestrian Catch Bus Is The Good Samaritan Of The Week

With all the crashes and road rage incidents that usually get posted on the web, seeing an act of kindness on the road is refreshingly nice.

According to the description of the video, the rider’s motivation for giving that man a lift to the bus stop was the fact that it was over 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 Celsius) in Arizona on that day, and had the man missed the bus, he would have had to wait for the next one in the scorching heat.

The rider must have assumed the guy wouldn’t make it in time, having just passed a city bus heading towards the stop, and seeing him running more than an intersection away from where he needed to get.

Moreover, this was the first time this rider let anybody climb on his bike.

It goes without saying that this was extremely kind of him – after all, he could have just minded his own business and no one could blame him for it. Goes to show that behaving like an idiot while driving is inexcusable, although we have to admit that, in videos as in real life, we encounter much, much more of the latter.

    What does this have to do with automobiles?

      It doesn’t. But you’d have a problem watching a 47 second random act kindness why?

        ha ha ha

      • Bo Hanan

        Yeeeeah but he did film his “random act” and post it on YouTube…
        Regardless, (trying not to be cynical in this selfie world) it WAS nice.

        • We can assume posting this video on Youtube as a kind of example of right human behavior – can’t we?

        • Perhaps his video will inspire others to be more aware and not think the universe revolves around them all-the-time…

      The bike and bus are automobiles, the good Samaritan helped a stranger catch a bus on a bike.

  • Krisnadi Imam

    the guy doesnt wear a helmet riding on the bike. thats kinda risky, he could’ve been ticketed for that.

      It’s Arizona, no helmet law for those over the age of 18.

    Good on this guy! I love being that biker that stops to help people broken down or stopped on the side of the road. There are enough d-bags in the world on two wheels, I feel like I’m offsetting them. Also, there’s a real sense of community when you help someone, regardless of your transportation preference. Lastly, wear some d*** gear.

    • TheHake

      There are WAY more d-bags in the world on 4 wheels…

    You know, there are so many articles here about horrible people doing something terrible with their cars and bikes. It’s actually refreshing to see someone doing something positive and helpful. You usually don’t see the random acts of kindness involving cars and bikes posted here, even though I know there is a lot it going on out there. Just requesting more favorable articles about driver’s and biker’s now and then to balance out all the horrible driver / biker articles that make you think the entire world is nuts.

  • Un Tipo Serio

    Looks like someone over there feel uncomfortable about people helping each other…

    I get both sides, the guy was good to give him a ride, no doubt about that, and the positive good samaritan thing was the first thing I thought of. however, if this story ended differently, such as a bad accident, and the passenger got hurt badly, then what would you think? the biker should carry an extra helmet if hes gonna gives rides, i did when i had a bike.

    • You are definitely right in a question of security, but c’mon, there were just about 200-300 meters almost empty straight road to ride.
