    I had to cringe at a few of those. That's some poor cycling and driving going on there (All peds are an unpredictable hazard anyway).

    Wow....but people say driving aggressive is the only way to go in NYC...having never been there, but from documentaries made on the place, it is gridlocked a fair amount of the time, so aggressiveness would be needed to get where you are going.

    I'd say Adobe After Effects. I've seen (and done) the tutorial for making the zoom effect at the start, and I would image that the 'tracking' of cars/bicycles etc was done using tracking points and some clever expressions maybe to detect 'collisions' and change the colours. Or they keyframed it manually...

    Ohhh, pretty

    I bet that most if not all the cyclists going the wrong way at high speed were couriers. Their drag races are immense/scary (depending on your POV!)

    A couple of quotes from the Wiki entry for the guy filming these nutters...sorry cyclists...in TechMonkeys contribution...

    Brunelle is known for his daredevil riding style, which has caused some tension with other riders and with authorities.
    Can't think why this should be so...

    Domestically, Brunelle has faced opposition from some bicycle advocacy groups who do not approve of his attitude towards car drivers. His videos frequently portray himself and other riders acting with no regard of traffic laws and the safety of themselves and others.
    Hmmmm...

    It did seem to me that there were some very alert drivers and pedestrians who managed to give the cyclists the room to try and kill themselves...

    that cycling is shocking!

    Being a cyclist (or used to be), i hate the on-road, off-road nature some cyclists seem to take. Often jumping back onto the road at random points
