...Brazilian driver went nuts! Biker left clinging from windscreen after he kicks woman's car

A motorcyclist was left clinging on to a car windscreen after an angry driver rammed into him in a shocking road rage attack in Brazil.

The whole episode was captured on camera by a member of the public and has now been posted on You Tube.

Video footage shows a woman driver ploughing her silver four-wheel-drive straight into him before crashing her car following an altercation at traffic lights.

It appears that the rider had angered the driver by kicking her vehicle and arguing with her after he tried to squeeze through a gap while stopped at a traffic light on a three-lane highway.

The 4WD driver then suddenly hits the accelerator and steers into the motorbike, which is pushed into the middle lane, narrowly missing another vehicle.

The biker, wearing a black leather jacket and blue denim jeans, abandons his bike, which topples on to the road, and then marches towards the 4WD to confront the driver...

...After the car crashes at the side of the road, the rider attempts to grab the dark haired woman through her car window, before onlookers intervene and he walks away.

Many people are calling for the 4WD driver to be charged with attempted murder? Hmmmmm? The motorcylist started everything.

Never bring a motorcycle to an SUV fight.

The video seems to start with the lady coming up on the bike, and the biker looked back, the lady backs up and the biker gives her car a "and don't let it happen again" kick.

SHE thinks, Yeah? phuque you too .. and probably meant to do a less aggressive return, but it just didn't work out that way.

The rest, as we say .. is history.

So, the biker feeling ENTITLED to go through spaces that no car is physically capable of going through - was angered and decided to take it out by theatening and vandalizing the 4WD car? Am I the only one who would consider this threatening?

Granted, the driver over-reacted; but the instigator of the entire confrontation was the biker, for being denied to execute a maneuver that is inherently dangerous and illegal in many states and cities.

I’m not going to justify or defend what the woman did in the slightest, but if you don’t want to get hit by a car, you probably shouldn’t kick it.

Motorcyclists are more equal than others and it is their duty to remind others of that fact.

It is especially troubling to find that some will actually refuse to genuflect when confronted.

I don’t know... It looked to me as if he was already in front of her and she had her nose tilted towards the biker. She should have not come that close to him. I probably would have kicked her car too!

Review the tape. It really looked like he was already in that position. I don’t see him coming up and riding in between the two cars. He was already there!

O.k. nevermind! I watched again and slowed it down again and again. He did come up between them and she wasn’t having any of that.

The four wheeler is inches from being left over the lane ... she came up on to the bike which was (allowably) ON the lane marking and he responded discourteously (but righteous, imo) to a driver devoid of road courtesy .... or doing her nails at the time.

C'mon y'all ... are we all trevon martin, now ?

Watch the video.

Reviewing the video again, it shows the motorcyclist attempting to go between the two cars, as they both come to a stop.

You know, motorcyclists have this right to squeeze between cars, it is written in the US Constitution! /s

I disagree, the cyclists was slightly behind the SUV as they came up to a stop, then tried to sqeeze through the gap between cars. Look at video again.

Both of them need to be summarily executed.

Lane splitting in Georgia is ILLEGAL.

He gave it and he got more back. Were he
here in Georgia he’d be wrong to be in the same lane alongside ANY
car.

But so what rawhide. Filtering in traffic is not legal in 56 states (CA being the exception), but that is Brazil. In most of the world, filtering is legal. No reason for her not to allow the guy to do it except it pleased her to do so. Then used her car to block and possibly hurt the biker.

As would I, after watching 'em for more than a quarter Century in San Francisco.

If you watch enough of these road rage and accident videos - you won’t feel comfortable sitting in a car anymore.

I watched the video 3 times and I can't tell which way the motorcyclist wanted to go. Was he in the center lane and wanted to get in the right lane and she wouldn't let him? I am careful not to hit anyone, car or motorcycle but motorcycle riders sure make that difficult sometimes. If he was going up the stripe trying to get to the head of the line, he was wrong and I have seen that activity more than once.

It can't be stopped so today I've decided to embrace societal breakdown. It's entertaining as heck and participation is often an option.

Why fret? Let the church roll on!

So far, Laz, you are the only poster to offer a solution.

I can’t say whether or not I would have done the same thing as the woman did... kick my car in a hissy fit of anger and watch what happens

Try to remember folks, this was in Brazil, not the US (sorry if your post was sarcasm and I missed it).

I’ve been to a few countries in South America and driving around there can be best described as “organized chaos”. The motorcyclist wasn’t doing anything wrong, in fact (as rawhide mentioned) it’s not really illegal even in the US.

I chalk this up to a situation where the driver was having a bad day and raged on the motorcyclist. He had a chip on his shoulder and kicked the car. Unfortunately, he may as well have been kicking a bear and should have known better. The rest of the story explains itself.

A biker “filtering” like that is risking putting a scrape down the side of either of the cars, if he miscalculates just a bit. Just trying that stunt only inches from my car pisses me off.

I would guess that the woman made a comment that the biker didn’t appreciate, and he committed the first actual offense by kicking her car.

That doesn’t justify what she did, but I can understand why she was pissed.

They’re both jerks.

I notice that you are now using a double-lined box around your pearls of wisdom.

What's the matter?

Weren't you getting enough attention with only a single-lined box?

Is that a personal threat of violence?

Because if it is, I can match anything you’ve got.
