Fed Up Cyclist Attaches Air Horn To Bike To Get Pedestrians To Move Out Of The Way

Sometimes pedestrians wander from designated pavements into the bike lane, and one cyclist was so fed up of having to slow down while they moved that he came up with an alternative solution: an air horn. 

In a hierarchy of road occupants, car drivers sigh at cyclists, and cyclists sigh at stray pedestrians. Unlike this cyclist however, most of them just accept that they have to share the road.

After showing viewers a glimpse of his everyday walker-filled struggles, the frustrated cyclist captured the responses unsuspecting members of the public gave when he put his new attention seeking airhorn to use.

Check out the video here:

Admittedly, the air horn did seem to have a lot more authority than an innocent, twinkling bell. The pedestrians seemed much more willing to move when it sounded like a huge truck was coming up rapidly behind them.

Sharing the video online, the creative man wrote:

I am fed up with people walking in the Cycle lane in London. It’s like they don’t even care that is there. I decided to make my presence more known by investing in an air horn. These are my results.

Despite its success at getting pedestrians to move, the use of the air horn did have its issues. One surprised man nearly leapt into the main road in fright, while another, more aggressive member of the public actually pushed the cyclist off his bike after a short dose of the gas powered notification system.

Though, those issues probably wouldn’t have occurred if the pedestrians hadn’t been in the bike line in the first place.

The video received mixed opinions from viewers, with some sticking up for the pedestrians who, at some points in the video, didn’t have much choice but to be in the cyclist’s way.

One defensive viewer wrote:

You’re honking at them for crossing a street that REQUIRES them to walk through the bike lane? Cmon dude.

Another added:

i get if they are just walking in the lane, but when they’re just crossing the street?

For other viewers however, the video was a delightful source of entertainment:

I want more videos like this.

I’m sure there is a lot of scope for more videos like this, given the host of rivalries that seem to exit between various modes of transport.

There’s cars in the bike lane:

If you drive in the bike lane, just know, you’re tacky and I hate you.

People thinking that cars won’t hurt them:

Why do people think it’s okay to walk in the middle of the road ?

And even scooters fighting for a place on the road:

I know how dangerous riding with cars can be. I’ve ridden the scooter too. They’re fun and convenient, and crazy dangerous if you’re not in a bike lane or wearing a helmet.

As annoying as it must be for cyclists to have people meandering in their lane, at least the situation has produced this entertainingly questionable video showing one alternative method of getting people’s attention.

Woman Takes Seven Minutes To Reverse Car Out Of Parking Spot

Parking can be difficult at the best of times. Even in an empty car park there’s a pressure to get inside those annoying white lines.

Then again, without the white lines it’d be total pandemonium. Chaos and mayhem would rule every time you needed to pop to the shops for a pint of milk. The lines may seem like they’re trying to confine us, but really they’re just there to help.

But still, backing out of a tight space can be a pain. And if you are unfortunate enough to find yourself in the perilous situation of squeezing your way out of such a space, well, my advice is take your time, don’t be afraid to readjust, and definitely don’t do what this lady did.

Check it out:

As the video shows, the poor car in the left hand space has already had its back door dented and its hub cap fall off, presumably by the driver in the right hand space who is desperately trying to manoeuvre her way out of the car park and escape.

You’d think the damage is done. And though on the surface it is, the worst is yet to come.

After trying to put the ruined hub cap back on the parked car, the driver goes for another attempt to back out of the space, only to wedge the nose of her own vehicle into the back door of the parked car once again.

Why she didn’t reverse in a straight line we’ll never know, it seems like there’s enough space to, but maybe there’s something off-camera that we’re not seeing. What we do know is that, after making the mistake for the first time, the mistake is unfortunately repeated again and again.

After trying to rub off the damage (though something tells me it’ll take more than spit to get that dent out), the driver finally frees herself from the torturous confines of the parking space, and drives away.

One person who was not trying to escape a parking space, but desperately try to hold one to one, was filmed in a car park in New York.

Instead of driving into it, however, a woman ran in to save the space for herself rather than let anyone else use it.

Footage filmed on another driver’s dashcam shows the young woman running over to the empty space just as the vehicle starts to drive into it.

Despite not being in a car, the anonymous woman then refuses to move, insisting her father had been waiting nearby for the spot in a white Jeep Compass.

As the video shows, though, the Jeep is nowhere to be seen:

With the woman declining to move, pointing to where the Jeep was supposedly waiting, the other driver begins honking their horn hoping she will eventually leave.

At this point the woman’s mother comes over to join her, standing by her side in the spot during the strange stand-off.

Fortunately, a kind motorist who was leaving the car park managed to diffuse the situation before things turned too ugly.

You would think, usually, the comradeship between truckers goes someway to pulling them through the long, lonely nights of nothing but empty roads.

The relationships built between drivers on the CB radio as they drive for hours and hours across countries must go someway to providing some sort of relief. Just as bus drivers always wave to one another, long haul truck drivers are also part of a select few with more than a job title in common.

Then again, we’ve all been on long, late night journeys that seem to go on forever. The kind where, no matter how fast or how far you drive, the road always looks the same, and you have that unbearable sense of never actually going anywhere.

Which, I’m assuming, happened to this driver, whose reckless driving and threats of violence over the radio ended in a bizarre bit of road rage, and the other driver informing the police of his actions.

Check it out:

Filmed in British Columbia, Canada, the driver who caught the footage on his dashcam, said:

I was driving an extended super B which has two trailers and 30 wheels. In all It’s over 100ft long. I had the cruise control set at 95km/h in a 100km/h two-lane highway. I was passed in an intersection by a loaded log truck.

My speed was ranging from 90-97km/h, changing over the slight grade changes, while in cruise. Bad words, reckless driving, threats of violence over the radio with lots of ‘trucker language’.

Still dark just before 6am, in heavy smoke from wildfires nearby and the log driver becomes aggressive after being high beamed.

He aggressively brakes down to 33km/h and for a while, won’t accelerate past 60, then swerves wildly across both lanes before stopping all traffic to kick my truck. Unwarranted road rage at 6am.

After a heated and lengthy exchange between the two drivers, the driver in front slams on the brakes, gets out of his truck and marches towards the other truck.

As he approaches the cab, however, he seems to change his mind, and instead of picking a fight with the other driver, he starts taking out his anger on the truck itself, kicking at the wheels are trying to pull at the front of the engine.

At the end of the video, as both drivers are back behind the wheel, the man behind the camera alerts the police to reckless actions of the driver in front.

Luckily, it seems there wasn’t any real damage to the trucks, just some bruised egos.

As we all know though, road rage can turn into instant karma pretty quickly.

Like it did for this guy:

It’s unknown what sparked the conflict, but it’s safe to say we know it ended.

As the green pick up truck came up in front of one car and got nearer to the silver car, the driver attempted to swerve into it. A downright reckless and dangerous move to say the least.

The attempt obviously backfired – the driver lost control, swerved across the freeway, almost hit another car in the process and slammed hard into a stone barrier.

Road rage is never pretty.

Kevin Hart Says He’s Going ‘To Kill’ Jamie Oliver For Taking Away Our Favourite Foods

kevin hart jamie oliver thumbOh no! Not Jamie!

Night School Kevin hart and Tiffany HaddishUniversal Pictures

In his crusade to prevent childhood obesity Jamie Oliver’s made a lot of enemies but none may be more dangerous than Kevin Hart.

That’s right Hart – who’s known in the UNILAD office as the deadliest man in Hollywood – has promised to not only put an end to Oliver’s healthy food quest but also the man himself by ‘killing him’.

Kevin made his murderous proclamation to kill the Naked Chef while promoting his upcoming movie Night School with co-star Tiffany Haddish and trying to come up with solutions to school kid’s problems.

Sarah, aged nine, wanted Hart and Haddish to use their celebrity connections to stop Jamie Oliver from taking away all the foods they enjoyed.

She wrote: 

This guy called Jamie Oliver keeps threatening to get rid of my favourite foods. Me and the gang are plotting on to get him ‘dealt with’. Could you please have a word with The Rock please Kevin, I think you’re a little too short.

The mere mention of The Rock clearly sent Kevin into a murderous rage because he immediately began saying how he was more dangerous than his Jumanji co-star.

Hart began by saying that calling on The Rock is stupid because he’s a much better fighter than Dwayne because he’s trained in Taekwondo, mixed martial arts and hand to hand combat.

Haddish decided to get things back on track at this point but Hart had clearly made up his mind, the only solution to this conundrum was murder most foul!

Here’s How the conversation went down:

Tiffany Haddish: Jamie Oliver. The guy he’s trying to get people to eat healthily and so she wants him to be dealt with because that’s her favourite foods.

Kevin Hart: Say no more.

TH: Alright well you know…

KH: I’m gonna kill him…

TH: Okay well I don’t think that’s, I don’t think that’s the… thing to do.

KH: That’s what she needs…

TH: No…

KH: That’s what she’s asking to be done…

TH: No. No. That’s not… n.

KH: These hands were made for lethal [laughs] lethal activity.

TH: No. No.

Hart: Say no more Sarah.

TH: Kevin. No we’re not gonna do that.

KH: Bye, bye Jamie.

We can only presume that Tiffany managed to convince Kevin not to brutally murder the widely beloved television chef once our interviewer had left the room.

That or the comedy star’s slowly plotting a murder so despicably complicated that not even Sherlock Holmes could solve it.

Anyway, murderous schemes aside, Night School stars Kevin Hart as Teddy Walker, a successful salesman whose life takes is ruined when he accidentally blows up his place of employment.

Faced with no other option Teddy is forced to head to night school to get his GED (kind of like American GCSEs).

Unfortunately, school is a lot harder than Teddy expected and he has to deal with a group of misfit students, his former high school nemesis and a feisty teacher, played by Tiffany Haddish, who doesn’t think he’s too bright.

Night School opens in UK cinemas on September 28.
