Road rage driver demands bare-knuckle fight because biker doesn't recognise him

David Kearns

A road rage incident between a Vauxhall driver and a man on a moped has left the Internet wondering, who is Ronnie Pickering?

A video uploaded to Youtube on Sunday features biker engaging in an expletive-ridden argument with a very angry driver near Hull in Yorkshire.

At one point in the argument, the driver shouts over his lowered window: “Do you know who I am?”

The bemused rider replies: "What?"

"Do you know who I am?" the driver repeats, leaning forward in his seat.

"Do I care?" the rider retorts, before adding: "Come on, who are you then?”

“Ronnie Pickering," the man replies.

“Ronnie f****** Pickering! Ronnie f****** Pickering! Ronnie f****** Pickering!”

The argument escalates until Mr Pickering challenges the moped rider to a “bare-knuckle fight” in the street,

“I'll f--king show you then who I am!" he bellows out the window,” the driver roars.

The popularity of the video has soared - making something of an Internet star of Mr Pickering, a 51-year-old man from Hull.

The disagreement has already attracted more than 150,000 views.
