This is the shocking moment a furious motorist knocks a cyclist on to his bonnet after the vigilante stops his Mercedes from driving on the wrong side of the road.
Mikey, a London cyclist, filmed himself stepping in front of the car as the driver tries to turn right by overtaking traffic on Tuesday, June 11, near Regent’s Park.
The vigilante has now stopped two cars from performing the risky manoeuvre on the outer circle by Park Square East.
A passing police car stopped during the latest altercation to speak to the driver, who had cut past the traffic in order to get to work faster, for 25 minutes.

He was issued with tickets for driving and public order offences, according to Mikey.
A video of his latest encounter shows him being knocked off his feet — denting the driver’s bonnet.
Another cyclist, who stops to help Mikey, says: ‘Why are you driving on the wrong side of the road.’
The driver says: ‘What are you talking about. Get out my way man.’
He then drives further forward — again knocking the cyclist off his feet.
Mikey says ‘why are you driving in to me’ before the driver responds ‘I’m not driving in to you. Stop standing in the road mate. What are you talking about? What’s your problem? This is absolutely fine. There’s traffic and I’m turning right.’

Walking over to speak to the man what is said is inaudible. One of the officers asks Mikey what had happened.

Explaining he was forced in to the bonnet a couple of times as the driver continued forward the officer asks if he’d like to make a report.
As he goes to make a statement the camera cuts out. Turning his camera back on 25 minutes later as the driver is allowed to leave Mikey says: ’25 minutes later, the driver is shaking his head at me, now very late for work’.
Mikey said: ‘Bad driving like this is a huge risk to cyclists in Regent’s Park — a van driver knocked a cyclist off doing exactly what this driver did recently.’
It comes just weeks after Mikey stepped in to the road to stop two doctors as they tried to cut around traffic with the same manoeuvre.
During the May 22 altercation he stood in front of the black Volvo SUV and had a lengthy conversation with the doctors.

The passenger explained they needed to skip the traffic to get to clinic and treat their patients.
She then got out of the car to talk to Mikey before taking a picture of him and threatening to call the police because she felt intimidated.
She said: ‘Some of us actually do something for a living instead of sitting here.’
A taxi driver waiting to continue along the road then sounded his horn and said: ‘Come on you’ve proved your point now move out of the way and let everyone get on with their lives.’

The two doctors were later issued with a notice of intended prosecution (NIP) from the Met Online reporting centre.
Metropolitan police have been approached for comment in connection with the latest incident.
