Biker films moment he is ‘undertaken’


A BIKER has filmed the moment a maniac driver risks lives by undertakin­g his motorbike on a pavement.

The clip shows the female driver twice mounting the pavement as she struggles to get past Mike Binks’ motorcycle.

She even manages to take out a phone to take pictures of the ‘dawdling’ biker.

Software engineer Mike, 50, from Reddish, was riding his 110cc Honda Wave at 20mph in Newton Heath on his way to work when the incident happened at around 8am.

The footage – taken from a camera he mounted on the rear of his bike – shows the Micra indicating left to undertake Mike before mounting the pavement, but then aborting the manoeuvre.

It also shows the driver appearing to hold up a pink- coloured mobile phone to take her own footage of the motorbike before continuing her attempts to get past it.

Moments later the car indicates right in a second attempt to overtake, but is thwarted by on- coming traffic.

The Nissan then attempts a second undertakin­g manoeuvre, indicating left and mounting the pavement a second time. On this occasion the Nissan is successful.

Mike said: “At the time I could see her riding up behind me.

“I was trying to work out what was going on.

“I reviewed the footage when I got to work and that’s when I was able to realise just what was really happening.

“She’s committing a number of driving offences – using a mobile while driving, undertakin­g, driving on the pavement.

“At the very least it was careless driving if not dangerous driving.

“I certainly expect police to speak to her.”
