The popular twitter account, NYC Bike Lanes, posted some terrifying footage of a cyclist who was deliberately hit by a motorist in Manhattan. The incident took place on Fifth Avenue near the Rockefeller Center. According to the account, the rider told the person they were a bad driver. The person behind the car was not amused and then tried to ram the cyclist and their dog.
As users on Reddit said, the driver essentially was using a “two ton vehicle as a weapon against a cyclist and dog on a cargo bike.”

Other posters hoped that the bus that was just behind the cyclist would be able to ID the motorist with their dashcam footage.
Road violence seems to be a never-ending threat for cyclists and this latest incident is a reminder that enough is enough. As NYC Bike Lanes tweeted, the attack could have been deadly.

Looks like attempted murder to me.
