Bizarre Motorcycle Road Rage Fight Caught on Camera
A wild road rage incident between a driver and a motorcycle rider has gone viral.
It was captured on the motorcyclist’s helmet camera in South Florida.
The two men are seen weaving in and out of lanes and are seen driving on the wrong side of the road.
The driver of the car repeatedly tries to run the motorcycle rider off the road. According to WSVN-TV, the two got to speeds as high as 90 mph in the city of Homestead.
“I’m just like, ‘Man, I’m on a motorcycle. My life is literally in your hands,'” Rone Gonzalez, 23, the motorcycle rider, told the station.
Gonzalez said the road rage took place as he was going to work when the driver, later identified as Kristiian Rosa, cut him off. Gonzalez then lost his cool, making crude hand gestures at the driver of the red Ford Focus. He even hits the car’s side-view mirror.
Rosa later filed a police report against Gonzalez.
“He came into the police department and filed a police report stating that there was minor damage to his vehicle … from when the driver slapped his side mirror,” Police Detective Fernando Morales said of Rosa, according to the Huffington Post on Wednesday.
Morales said that both drivers were in the wrong, and now, Gonzalez faces a misdemeanor charge.
“It was a stupid move,” he told WSVN before he was arrested.
Gonzalez posted the video on YouTube after Florida police allegedly told him not to file a report since road rage is so common in Florida, the New York Daily News reported.
“All of this stuff wasn’t on purpose but an attempt to get away,” he wrote. “I didn’t chose (sic) to get on to oncoming traffic, he blocked my path on both lanes, I didn’t want to harm myself or other people … if I was more experienced then yes it could have been differently. But I was in fear of my life, and panicking.?”
