Ive seen this kind of local justice dealt out before. Its no wonder drivers flee the scene. This guy did the right thing after the accident and got dealt with heavily. I think if it happened again he would think twice about doing the right thing. Very sad.

Poorly lit road and no back lights at the sidecar...very bad combination!

I silently curse all motorbike drivers who drive without backlight. From the interior of a car, it is really difficult to spot, until you are almost on top of them. They probably never drive a car, and do not know that the view is so much different, then when driving a motorcycle. I have met so many ignorant motorbike drivers here...

'And getting beaten because you hit a motorbike without backlight is just ridiculous. As if he does not feel guilty enough..'

Since there seem to be no witnesses other than the driver of the truck, we don't really know what happened and who is to blame.

Martin, next time could you possibly write in English?

Maybe in the bigger picture of things, why don't the bike manufactures provide lights that don't give out so easily. I don't see many car lights out and I don't ever recall a bulb failing on my cars thru the years.. yes it is dangerous for one and all all these bikes without lights...

How much does a back light cost ? There are too many bikes on the roads with no lights.....Maybe the driver is not to blame but the riders who ride around with no lights. Too many times have we all seen this at night too many near accidents.....Police should stop any bikes/cars with broken lights.
