Road rage on a bike is just as ugly as in a car. What did he think was going to happen after he chased him to the next set of lights and confronted him? None of us are perfect, but I always try not to react to poor driving, for exactly this reason!
An unpleasant incident indeed. I do have to agree that chasing after an aggressive driver rarely ends well. You're pumped with adrenaline and so is the driver, it is never a good combination and I have yet to encounter a driver who turns around and says "sorry mate, my mistake". Still assault is inexcusable and I do hope the police get involved.
There's no point goading these narrow minded pr1cks.. You're just asking for trouble if you try telling them how to drive their killing machines.. Unless they've bumped u... Then you should definitely unleash the fury!!!
Hello - Recently joined the forum.
I saw the video clip on twitter recently and again on here.
What a sorry state of affairs!
The driver appeared to dislike the fact the cyclist has stopped in front of the car albeit the cyclists was within the cycle zone, with the car then entering the cycle zone "presumably" to make a quick exit.
As a car driver I give cyclists as much room as possible, as a cyclist I do my best to ensure that car's can pass me,keeping well out of their way.
Some how, cyclist's and other road users need to get on and share what is a very a busy and congested road infrastructure.
Personally and I am not one of violence, if that driver had run over my foot, no matter if it was because I had a word with him about being in a cycle box.
I would have chased like that, but my angry wouldn't have been "you f**king pr*ck" shouted at his window, it would have been a rather large scratch down the side of his c*ckmobile, elbow through the window, knock off the wing mirror. Then cycle off....
Wouldn't have gotten me anywhere, nor would it be right or within the law, but if you have your foot run over, what are you supposed to do?? Just sit back and take it....I think not
