Cafe Owner Fined For Public Order Offence
Brew's Jason Wells 'angriest driver in the world' after losing it on Priory Lane
The relationship between two wheels and four can be tense and is a regular subject of debate, but this week one local businessman Jason Wells completely lost all sense of proportion when he believed a cyclist Nick Squillari 'hit' his 4x4 on Roehampton Lane.
The two faces of Jason Wells
Mr Squillari was riding along Priory Lane, Roehampton, towards Richmond Park, when Mr Wells in his Land Rover Discovery 4 attempted to overtake him. The 4x4 pulled up ahead of the cyclist and Mr Wells got out and hurled a torrent of abuse at Mr Squillari. The event was all caught on Mr Squillari's cycle mounted video - showing four minutes of expletives and threats of physical violence including 'smash his teeth' & 'break his neck'.
WARNING: the video contains a significant number of expletives
Regular contributor to the forum on this site Adam Gray pointed out: "the cycle lane is dodgy: it's very narrow, and in turn was added to a quite narrow pavement which means pedestrians are often squeezed onto it. There certainly is not space for two-way cyclist traffic and pedestrians; and that's before we take into account the different types of cyclist using it."
