This is the startling moment a driver and a cyclist stop in the middle of the road and trade insults over who had the right of way

During the clip, the motorist insists that it was his right of way but the cyclist disagrees and tells him to have some respect for the ‘smaller user of the road’.

The footage, believed to have been filmed in Shoreham, West Sussex, was uploaded to a public Facebook page dedicated to bad driving on Tuesday but has subsequently been removed.

‘This man thought cause he was a wide load, he could barge his way through.

‘I am losing faith in people fast and a damn shame it wasn’t just me on my own.

‘But if you see this post thanks for making my eleven-year-old child scared with your swearing Mr Angry.’
