Donald Sutherland

When the Metal Met the Pedal

6/24/2011 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Sutherland made the case yesterday that bicycles and cars don't co-exist well, especially in the People's Republic of Santa Monica.

Sutherland collided with a bicyclist in the seaside city, at around 2:45 PM.  The bicyclist suffered some sort of injury -- paramedics wrapped her arm after arriving on scene.

It's unclear who caused the crash.  One thing cops are sure of -- alcohol was not a factor.

I'm sorry but I actually agree with Mr. Sutherland. I live in NJ and the bicyclists here are road nazis. God forbid you get behind one here, you'd think you were trailing royalty the way they act. I'm all for cyclists' safety but that doesn't give them a right to think they own the whole freaking road.

The problem I find with most cyclists is they don't follow the rules of the road! They weave in and out of traffic, ride up beside people turning right, the list goes on and on. If they want to share the roads, they should learn to follow the rules! or..the option is, get run over. *sigh*

If a car driver can`t not run over bikes than they should`nt be driving a car a bus a bike or a jock strap.I drive cars trucks busses motorcycles joke and ride a bike.I fear riding a bike the most because people don`t care if they hit you won`t stop and you can`t get out of thier way like a motorcycle which can outrun most anything on the roads.Riding on the sidewalk with a stop sign for protection I got run over by a 90 year which couldn`t see past thier window bend my bike all up but I just turned away and walked home thankful to be alive.But I should have taken her lic and money but I didn`t have the heart to

This guy is a quality actor. Liked every movie I ever saw him in. Today's actors really don't measure up to his generation of acting. Today, mostly, looks surpass real talent.

I agree, bikes and cars should not coexist on the road. Just not safe. Bikes want the same respect and regard as cars, yet they don't follow the same rules. They say "I deserve the respect of a car on the road!" yet they will barrel through a crosswalk to cross an intersection on a red light. No, cars aren't allowed to use crosswalks to be able to avoid red lights, so you can't either. Plus, a 20 pound bike versus a 2000 pound car...that's never going to be safe.
