Video: Driver gives best excuse ever for close pass
Monty Python would be proud
Everyone's had a driver pass a bit too close and perhaps taken the chance to remonstrate with them at the next lights. YouTube helmet cammer matthew6476 asked a driver for a bit more room next time and got the best response ever from an apologetic but understandably preoccupied driver.
Matthew's made the video private because, he says, he "cant be doing with the hassle from morons" on YouTube attacking him for posting videos. We've left it here in case he reconsiders.
Meantime, here's how it goes. The driver passes him without leaving much room. Matthew catches him at the next lights and taps on his window.
The driver rolls it down and Matthew asks: "Can you just give us a bit more room next time please?"
The driver opens the top of his coat to reveal a brightly-coloured bird as you can see in this still.
"I'm sorry," the driver replies, "but I've got a parrot dying on me."
Monty Python would be proud.
We hope the parrot pulled through.
