"Lycra lout", 55, filmed, which triggers a stream of abuse among pregnant drivers, is revealed


A cyclist who insulted a pregnant woman with a shocking tirade during a road traffic confrontation insisted: "I'm not the bad guy".

The developer, Dave Parker, was accused of violating the code by driving two side by side "in the middle" of a street in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, although he appeared to be right.

The confrontation was filmed by a passenger in the car and shared over 600 times on social media.

In the footage he leans over to the car window and scolds the pregnant woman, whom she calls "damn stupid".

The 55-year-old, who was traveling with Ms. Samantha when they were held in front of the camera, has now told The Sun that the series is "twisted" and that despite his aggressive language, he is not to blame.

Louth's father, Lincs, said, “I don't want to talk about it. I'm getting too much stick – it's incredible.

At the beginning (the driver) almost pushed me and my wife off our motorcycles. But it doesn't show all that. But I'm the bad one, right? & # 39;

The driver and the cyclist got into an argument

A cyclist called a pregnant woman a damned stupid woman during a confrontation over road traffic regulations in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire

The cyclist insists that during his tirade he "did nothing wrong" and shouted at the woman through the partially opened window.

He says: & # 39; What? A bicycle is allowed on the street. & # 39;

The woman replies and says: "If you actually look at the traffic regulations, you can see that you cannot have two next to each other."

But what does the traffic regulations say?

Section 66 of the Road Traffic Regulations states that cyclists should not ride more than two side by side, but should ride in a single row on narrow or busy roads and in bends.

However, this is an advisory rule, and there is no law that prevents cyclists from doing so.

The code also states that cyclists can ride in the middle of a lane to avoid unsafe passes, especially on slower urban roads.

Section 67 also states that when cyclists move away from the curb, they should first look around to make sure that this is safe. They should also give a clear signal to show other road users what you are up to.

But the man argues that the code states that cyclists can "double-file" on a 30-mph road before insulting and apparently storming the woman.

In Section 66 of the Road Traffic Regulations, cyclists are advised not to ride more than two side by side, but to ride in a single row on narrow or heavily used roads and in bends.

However, this is an advisory rule, and there is no law that prevents cyclists from doing so.

The code also states that cyclists can ride in the middle of a lane to avoid unsafe passes, especially on slower urban roads – which apparently proves that the cyclist was correct.

Driving in the middle of the street or assuming the “primary position” is taken over by cyclists when they drive past parked cars, the doors of which can suddenly open to prevent traffic from dangerously overtaking on narrow streets and when maneuvering or turns.

It goes without saying that the confrontation began after the driver pressed the cyclist's horn to "hold cars up".

The cyclist "allegedly followed the car" to Cleethorpes Country Park.

A video of the incident was uploaded to social media to track down the cyclist.

The post had the heading: Does anyone know this man please?

& # 39; Was in the middle of the street, two people.

“Then when he was insulted for holding cars up, he threw up hand signals.

"Deliberately slowed down and was everywhere on the road, then he followed the car and was very violent and aggressive."

The cyclist caused anger on social media, and users said this was the case "No need to speak to her like that," whether he was "right or wrong."

One user said: “While the man's behavior is completely disgusting, he is right.

“We can drive in the middle of the road and drive two wide.

"You have to treat cyclists just like a motorcycle or another car."

Another user said, "He doesn't have to be so arrogant. It gives cyclists a bad name. & # 39;

Others have compared the cyclist to Ronnie Pickering, who became a sensation after shouting, "Do you know who I am?" with a moped driver.

The confused driver replied, "Who?" after the man said he was & # 39; Ronnie Pickering & # 39 ;.

One person said, "Regardless of who is right and who is wrong, there is no need for such aggression and disgusting language."
