A man driving a BMW car in Bristol has been caught on camera trying to push a cyclist from his bike, with the rider posting the helmet camera footage to the Bristol Cyclists page on Facebook as well as to YouTube.
The video shows the cyclist, Dave Edmonds, riding along Wordsworth Road in the Horfield area of the city, as the BMW approaches from the opposite direction, with the vehicle appearing to slow slightly as the driver moves across the road.
Then the footage shows the motorist leaning out of the window and stretching his arm out towards the rider to give him a shove, although he didn't manage to push him off his bike.
In his Facebook post, Mr Edmonds wrrote: "Another video of outrageous behaviour as the driver of MX64 JWU (White BMW 520 D) swerves across the road and leans out of the car window and gives me a shove to try and knock me off. Car has no tax either according to the DVLA. "
He said that he would report the incident to Avon & Somerset Police and added, "nice mugshot, though."
