This incident occurred January 19th at approximately 3 PM in Madison in the state of Wisconsin. The driver can be seen driving from a side road and it appears he didn’t see the cyclist as he started to make the left turn before the cyclist had passed.
Once the turn was made the driver, despite the road being clear ahead and the center line being broken, didn’t overtake the cyclist. Instead, he drove up behind the cyclist and then dangerously close alongside the cyclist, winding his window down and shouting “I wanna smash your f**kin’ face in!” at the cyclist. At this point, the car is driving on the wrong side of the road and the driver is driving without due care and attention while he shouts at the cyclist through the open window.
After numerous attempts to use his car to ram the cyclist to get him to stop he finally manages to squeeze the rider so close to a parked car that he had no choice but to stop. The irate driver then gets out of his car and comes charging with clenched fists towards the cyclist. It would appear from the video that at this point the driver notices that the cyclist is using a camera and his body language changes and he retreats back to his car. That doesn’t stop him cutting the cyclist off one more time, overtaking him just before the next stop sign and then turning right.
The cyclist has sent the video to his local police and is waiting to hear if they are going to charge the car driver with any offenses.
