Video: Tenerife motorist rams cyclist – who turns out to be local police officer

Online debate ensues as to whether he should have been using the cycle lane

A video has been posted to Facebook of an argument between a cyclist and a driver in the municipality of Santa Cruz in Tenerife. The driver attempts to drive into the cyclist, who according to the description then reveals himself to be a police officer by showing his badge.

Much of the ensuing debate on the social media site concerns whether or not the officer should have been riding in the cycle lane.

Some suggest that he was impeding traffic, while others say that the bike lane isn’t mandatory and he was well within his rights to use the road.

More than one person points out that even if the cyclist should have been in the bike lane, it wouldn’t really excuse the driver’s deliberate attempt to drive into him.
