Confusing thing about the passenger clips is that they seem to get thrown backwards for a fraction of a second before being thrown forwards. What's going on? I only noticed that by stepping through the video slowly (i..e pressing pause/run a lot). Or is that in the front one which got hit from behind?

.
In some of the video the passengers are with backs towards the front of the tram therefore massive neck rotation backwards followed being thown out of the seat on rebound. The 1st woman is obviously facing forwards and hits the seat in front at full train velocity

At least the transport agency (in Greece?) have released the footage and not tried to cover up the event like TFL did with the Croydon tram crash.
Despite having no valid reason for exceeding the speed limit to such an extent the driver still hasn't been charged with an offence 4 years on and is still on the streets despite killing seven.

I don't think he wanted to live anyway, he barely reacted and stayed on his phone whilst he car got smashed into

I think that could be the most dangerous driving i have ever seen. As said, overtaking a lorry on double white lines in the pissing rain with heavy traffic in the other lane and 100mph+. Unbelievable.

Uk bad driving caught on cam 2019 ep6
I've got real sympathy for the driver at 1:58 - he approached as slowly as he could (in fact he was stationary just before impact) and it's likely the cyclist was completely hidden behind the line of traffic. Not sure how the driver could/should have avoided that one but I bet he still gets the book thrown at him.

I've got sympathy for him too. It's the sort of manoeuvre most of us would do but he still crossed the lane without being able to see properly. One of the reasons I don't don't like people letting me in/out at junctions - you don't know that they have looked at all.

Case law will probably lead to it being 50-50 if it ends up getting that far.

How could it be 50-50?
It's 100% on the car driver for turning across another road users path, if it were two cars colliding it would be same.

The video has been removed. Here is another, but worse quality.

Fagan V Jeffers is an almost identical case which involved a motor bike. Went 50 50 as the car should have taken more care as should a bike moving up the inside of traffic. especially at a junction.

Yeah, a reason I much prefer moving up the outside. If I'm moving up the inside, I'm watching out at gaps in the cars, because I'm well aware that someone may be pulling out/in.

Of course, moving up the outside has led to people trying to block me from moving back in when the traffic starts moving, but that's easier to manage.
