Rush Hour Road Rage
Occurred on January 11, 2017 / London, UK Info from Licensor: "I was riding my motorcycle on my way home from work, from central London to east London during rush hour.
Filtering is legal in the UK, and in London, it is done very extensively for the most part, especially in central London.
In the video, the 3 individuals in the car that I had my argument with were in the right turn only lane, and they intended to use that lane to skip traffic and go straight instead.
As a result, they did not want any bikers in front of them since that could slow them down and result in them being unable to get past the traffic when the lights change.
So the driver of the car drove into me to stop me from waiting in front of him and hit my brand new motorcycle which I had only owned for a month.
It was because the bike was so new that I lost it so easily.
I would also like to add that after our interaction, when we do drive off and I was filtering through traffic, I was actually going faster than I normally would.
I would blame that on the adrenaline."
