Vine commented on the video: “A cycle moment to show you from this morning’s commute. I was behind the affected cyclist.

“The white car wants to change lanes, so why wait?”

The cyclist is forced to come to a stop, prompting them to start gesturing and saying something to the driver.

But after speeding ahead, the cyclist then cycles in front of the car, which appears to enrage the driver.

They beep their horn at the cyclist and accelerate before swerving left.
