This is the moment a car overtaking Jeremy Vine nearly crashed into an oncoming cyclist in Richmond Park. 

Footage posted by the BBC presenter on social media shows a car driving past cyclist Vine while ensuring a wide overtake. 

But the driver fails to spot another cyclist coming towards him on the opposite side of the road. 

The vehicle and the oncoming bicycle nearly collide before the cyclist can be heard furiously branding the driver an ‘a**hole’. 

Vine then says: ‘That’s so strange. He’s given me so much space, he’s close past the oncoming cyclist who is furious.’ 

The incident is the latest altercation captured on 360-degree camera by cycling champion Vine, who is on a relentless mission to shame London’s dodgy drivers.

Viewers commented on the video to share their thoughts on the ordeal, with some criticising the cyclist for not wearing more visible clothing.   

‘The oncoming cyclist is barely visible against the trees etc due to being all in black. Cyclists should have lights on all the time, I do with my MC. Why take the chance?’ one person wrote.

Another said: ‘I have to say even as a cyclist I would not ride in Black especially at this time of year with low sun and grey and raining. And would have a front flashing light too.’ 

But a third added: ‘Not checking for oncoming traffic, should have seen a cyclist in daylight.’ 

Vine highlighted that there are tough rules on where you can drive and leave your car in Richmond Park, adding that the driver was abiding by the 20mph speed limit. 

The presenter, who has been described as ‘willing to die in defence of the Highway Code’, has caught dozens of people out during his regular commutes around the capital.

He was recently told to ‘f*** off’ by a driver after the motorist pulled out in front of him. 

Vine was cycling in King Street, Hammersmith, West London, when he witnessed a black Ford Fiesta cutting across the cycle lane.

Tooting at the ‘petrosexual’ driver, Vine is forced to pull out onto the road to give the motorist ‘more space to stop and correct his mistake’.

But the fuming driver appeared less than impressed by the BBC World News Today star’s reaction, which was caught on Vine’s helmet camera.

‘Oh f*** off, typical f***ing cyclist. I stopped didn’t I?’ says the man – before then turning into a no-entry road, where oncoming traffic forces him to stop.

In a video of the the incident, 58-year-old father-of-two Vine writes: ‘Interesting that this petrosexual stops without hesitation when he’s faced with an oncoming car. When it’s a cyclist, he abuses them.’
