Monday Motorbike Mayhem: What was this driver thinking?

Road rage. It's not big, it's not clever, but by god is it popular

THIS Monday we bring you another example of how not to drive.

Captured on a motorcyclist's camera, this clip shows the moment a Renault Megane driver pushes his way between a layby and a queue of traffic to cut in front of the biker. 

As if their behaviour wasn't already dangerous enough, the driver then slams the brakes on, causing the bike to go into the back of the car. 

Without even checking to see if the rider is ok, the pissed off cager accelerates away. 

Admittedly there are two sides to every story, and the lack of preceding footage hints that the biker may have done something to antagonise the driver. 

Nonetheless, the driver's actions were dangerous and it's lucky the rider wasn't hurt.
