“I saw a police car parked on the left with all lights going, so as I approached I stopped the bike,” she says.
“The window was down and I shouted to the policeman that the bloke in the car behind was tailgating me. The policeman threw his hands up and said something that I couldn’t hear and I assumed (rightly) that he didn’t want to bother to do anything.”
Even while Barbara is talking to the police, the video shows the driver edging closer and closer to her bike despite there being plenty of room to simply drive around.
Fortunately for Barbara, the story ends well with her filtering well away from him at the next set of traffic lights.
However, it could have ended badly while the police sat idly by.
“I feel very let down as there was a policeman there – they don’t want to know or bother until someone’s killed or injured,” Barbara says.
“I am sure I won’t be the only person this man has taken his road rage tendencies out on.”
