Jeramy Vine posted over social media a biased account of a female cyclist jumping the lights, nearly causing an accident.
Vine is the last cyclist who should be complaining about bad behaviour on the road, as he was once clocked by a police speed gun doing over 3 times the speed limit through Hyde Park, on his way to work at Broadcasting House.
Mr Vine is one of those cyclist who appears to believe that the regular rules of the road don’t apply to the Lycra clad commandos.
Vine decided to barrack the London Taxi Driver in this incident, who was given no chance of stopping, as the female cyclist suddenly turned 90 degrees (through a red man signal) left in front of him on a pelican crossing. The startled driver shouted something (as you would) at the cyclist through his side window (which was open at the time).
Mr Vine took great exception to the driver saying on his Twitter account ‘you wouldn’t act like that if it was your daughter”.
Well, Mr in a case like this where the cyclist was so obviously at fault and could of endangered other motorists, I would and most other Cabbies would.

TAXI LEAKS EXTRA BIT :
Jeramy Vine did however admit in a subsequent post that the cyclist in the clip was most definitely at fault !!!
We noticed that Mr Vine hasn’t claimed to be the cyclist who made the video... as it actually shows (the cyclist filming), breaking the law by followed the lady and also jumping the red light and could possibly leave that person open to prosecution for committing a road traffic offence.
