Raw video: Knife-wielding driver charges at cyclist

  • 02/06/2016

An Australian cyclist has uploaded footage of the frightening moment he was threatened by a knife-wielding driver.

In the video posted to YouTube, the impatient driver of a 4WD tries to push his way in front of the cyclist as they approach a roundabout -- leaving only centimetres between them.

The cyclist swerves and lightly clips the front of the vehicle before yelling "What the f*** are you doing?"

The driver then accelerates up the road before pulling over and running at the cyclist with a knife.

According to a caption on the online post, the "rather charming gentleman" avoided jail and was handed a $1500 fine.
