Cyclist confronts driver over iced-up windscreen after near miss (video)

After a car pulls out from a junction and nearly hits him, a cyclist insists the driver get out and de-ice his windows

“I can see clearly, I just didn’t see you,” says the driver of the Ford in the video above after a cyclist confronted him about his frosted-up windscreen.

The cyclist narrowly avoided being hit by the car as it pulled out of a side road, almost colliding with the bike’s back wheel.

The irate cyclist, who admits underneath his YouTube video that he may have been a touch rude, then blocks the car’s path and insists the driver gets out to scrape the ice from his windows.

The driver, however, insisted that he could see perfectly well out of his vehicle despite the near miss and refused to get out of his car, apologising profusely instead.

The AA recently issued a warning to motorists about the dangers of driving with insufficient clear glass to see through on the windscreen in the winter, advising them to fully de-ice all of their windows before setting off.
