06-10-2013 – Bad driving bogan cuts off cyclist, verbally threatens to run them over when confronted (CBD, Brisbane)

Original YouTube Description:

I was riding in the city one day and out of nowhere this woman speeds up at me, swerves around and beeps aggressively, scaring the hell out of me.

Ann St is a 60km/h zone in the Brisbane CBD with no bike lane, although generally most traffic moves at 30 – 45km/h as the rest of the CBD is a 40 zone.

I stopped, out of breath, to try to tell her that I was allowed to ride there and explain myself, but instead got a mouthful of lip from a bogan soccer mum, so I gave her some back.
