The force of the kick made him ricochet, sending him and the bike into the side barrier, and then to the ground. As he toppled over, traffic came to a stop, to allow him time to pick himself off the ground and assess his injuries.
He’s looking at his leg, which was probably scrapped when he and the bike went spinning on the road.
The video was shot way back in 2014, but it’s gone viral after it was re-posted to reddit to illustrate how “road karma” operates. The original poster says the biker lost his cool when the driver of the car accidentally drifted into the right lane. Road rage makes you do the stupidest things.
He stopped his bike and started swearing at the driver, which was cue for the poster to start his camera to record. He then got back on his bike and went after the car – and we all know how that ended. However, the same poster says police pulled over the driver and ticketed him.
As one reddit user explains, it wasn’t that uncommon for bikers to kick cars a while back.
“A few years ago bikers entitled themselves owners of the corridor lanes during heavy traffic times in SP ( which is almost all the time). Those imaginary lanes are actually the boundaries between real, painted lanes. If you crossed it or, got too close to it in a way that would disturb the bikers they would kick your side mirrors off. I think this was a fad and they don't do this anymore as much as they used to,” he explains.
