Biker takes on Jag driver in M-way tussle

A motorcyclist and a Jaguar driver got into a heated argument on a motorway.

Dashcam footage captured on the A50 near Stoke-on-Trent on May 9 shows a build-up of traffic on the busy road near the Staffordshire city.

As the vehicles come to a standstill, cars swerve to avoid the traffic, including a silver Jaguar moving into the path of a motorbike as the biker attempts to filter down the inside lane.

After an exchange of words, the Jaguar once more swerves into the biker's path and then pulls away.

Obscene hand gesture

The biker then appears to attempt to overtake the Jaguar, swerving into the path of a lorry in the left-hand lane. The two appear to exchange remarks before the biker pulls away.

Later on, the Jaguar can be spotted chasing the biker after he allegedly gave the driver an obscene hand gesture.

The footage was shot by HGV driver Dave Hazell-Darby, who was off-duty and heading home. He believes the Jaguar driver was to blame for the incident.

"In my opinion, he was being unnecessarily aggressive towards the biker," he wrote on Facebook.

But others disagreed, one user writing: "The biker was needlessly shoving his nose in when he could have just let it unfold and then filter through afterwards – not to mention having a dig at the trucker who did nothing wrong."
