This happened in London a few days ago and was witnessed and recorded on camera, and then posted on social media by Twitter user @Yorkshire_G, aka Georgie. Georgie says she and her mother were in the taxi when the Deliveroo biker rolled past the car, punching it twice and then kicking it. You can’t really see him punching the vehicle in the videos she posted, which are also available at the bottom of the page, but you can see clearly that he kicked the rear passenger door.
Then, as the biker circled the car to turn back, the driver leaped out of the vehicle, ninja-style, rushed to him and, with one great push, shoved him to the ground. That’s when the driver actually lost his pants – the effort must have taken a toll on his buttons and they betrayed him, leaving him exposed.
Pulling his pants back up, the driver retreated to his car, while the biker was still on the ground. A brief scuffle ensued when the biker tried to attack the driver, but the latter stood his ground. Despite the aggressiveness of both, this is perhaps one of the funniest instances of road rage captured on camera. The fact that no one was hurt in the incident virtually makes it ok for us to laugh about it.
“He cycled the wrong way up the bus lane then looked for a fight,” Georgie writes. “After circling the taxi in traffic and hurling abuse at the driver and us, he punched the window by my Mum and kicked the taxi. Quick scrap and no one badly injured.”
That said, don’t be either of these guys when you’re driving or riding a bike. Kicking vehicles when you’re on your bike, no matter the perceived offense, is just as bad as rushing out of your car to knock the life out of whoever hits your vehicle. Things could always end worse than with an exposed butt cheek.
