A dashcam video of a man kicking a moving car in San Luis Obispo has inspired a heated online debate over who was in the wrong: The driver who didn’t wait for the pedestrian to reach the curb before turning into the crosswalk or the pedestrian who turned around and booted the passing vehicle?
The Feb. 28 altercation was captured by a different driver who was stopped at the intersection of Santa Barbara Avenue and Broad Street; the driver later posted the video on Reddit under the user name SLOandEasy.
The Reddit user agreed to share the video with The Tribune but declined to be named on the record. He said the dashcam was “kind of a legacy” from his days living in Los Angeles.
In the video, a man is seen crossing the street and nearly reaching the curb when a white vehicle drives through the crosswalk, narrowly missing him.

The man turns and kicks the vehicle, leading to a brief verbal confrontation between the driver and pedestrian before the two go their separate ways.
So, who do you think is more at fault?
