Vine regularly submits footage from his commutes to police
Jeremy Vine has previously said that he feels a camera is safer than a cycle helmet when riding through London. The Radio 2 presenter routinely publishes videos of poor driving which have been shot during his commutes. His latest footage shows a driver pulling left into the path of a cyclist before an impressively protracted bout of horn-blaring as the cyclist then rides in front of the car for a distance.
The footage was shot on Hammersmith Road heading towards Kensington. Vine said(link is external): “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?”
Earlier this year, Vine published a video of an aggressive motorist who swore and kicked out at him, apparently in frustration at his having ridden in front of her in the middle of a narrow road.
After beeping her horn at him and moving up close to his rear wheel, she got out and told Vine to “get the f*ck out the road.”
Shortly afterwards, she got out of her car again to tell Vine to stop filming her car. After getting back in, she made the shape of a gun with her fingers and mimed a shot at him.
The motorist, a student from Vauxhall, was later charged with driving without reasonable consideration to other road users, failing to licence a vehicle, and using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour.
