Why did the driver get upset?
I’m betting cyclist was giving some kind of hand gesture to car for pulling across the junction too close. Using a car as a weapon like that surprised he didn’t get a harsher sentence could have easily killed the cyclist if got caught under the car or dragged along.

Isn't it just. This is 2019, not 1979. This is why the Police are gunning after Tommy Robinson, who she quoted. Whatever the circumstances leading up to it, not on, she's a vile racist skank.

Whilst there is no excuse for what the driver did, I am wondering why a) there is no sound on the video and b) why the driver came to a stop when the cyclist was far behind him.

Actually I'm not wondering, I am speculating the cyclist was gesticulating and maybe shouting obscenities at the driver.

As a cyclist myself I go by the mantra it's no good getting into a position on the road where you are squashed but hey, you were in the right. You never know who you'll meet on the roads these days.

Indeed. Totally unacceptable, an what a terrible role model for the child.

As usual, mostly no issues with the rest easily avoidable if the cammers were just more aware of the road around. actually the cyclist one that got cut by the white van was the van driver's fault for once, although the cyclist didn't need to verbally go off on one. The one thing common in all these is how long people use their horn for.

Indeed, most seem to have an unhealthy obsession with it - as to reading the road, think most have only knoledge of reading from a Kindle.

Agreed. More dashcam induced stupidity.

So on a 3 lane motorway say with no ‘congestion’ I’m travelling in a HGV at 56 in lane 1, catch someone doing 45 in lane 2, I can’t use lane 3 to pass so according to that if I just carried on in lane 1 and passed the lane 2 hog I could be done for careless driving?
I very much doubt it, if plod saw that I'd wager they would pull the person hogging lane 2 at 45mph.

Like the comment "Dropping a gear to slow down, how does that work then, your poor clutch" laugh
