That's pretty good. The best part is you were able to avoid him in the first place. The violent brake-checking seems not uncommon out there these days. Getting rammed or clipped from behind seems very rare, but much more deadly. If you'd wanted to get it all on video, wouldn't you have needed a Front camera? I can't bring myself to buy one (or two) yet.

Hopefully he will blab to one of his mates who punch him in the face for being a dangerous animal.

I can appreciate that some people get frustrated having to share their world with other people... But Cmon. Only the Hannibals and Milats actually want to murder people.

Well, when I was in hospital last night having been punched in the face and hit over the head with a piece of pipe by some fwit who said I'd pulled out of in front of him in my van 10 days ago!!! (very distinctive van on account of the 1.3m wide bike clearance sticker across the back door), I got talking to the nice German nurse. She said the first day she got to Tassie she jumped on her bike to ride to the shops. Within 5 minutes a bogan in a ute did a punishment pass withing 15cm of her and abused her. She was like "no more bike riding in Australia for me, too dangerous"

The police asked how the rego, discription etc was such a match to him? He struggled with this for some time but then indicated that I must have had a vendetta against him from some other road rage incident??? Police gave him a solid warning which meets my expectations. They were very nice. They did say it was a shame I didn't have video otherwise they could have done more.


Does he regularly get involved in road rage incidents then? :lol: Well done for getting him a warning.

Bugger, where was this? Being a local I'm interested to know where to avoid!

EDIT: Just seen your explanation in the MM thread. Heal up well. At least you were in a car when it happened, as I reckon you'll probably get a better outcome in the courts than if you were on a bike given the history of the justice system on such matters down here.

Use "shareyoutube" instead of "url".

Morons everywhere... It happened to me just yesterday that a person in a car decided to not obey the "give way to traffic in the lane you wish to enter when exiting a zip lane" in fact they sped up. They came with inches of hitting me despite me having a dedicated cycle lane :shock:
