Gardai said that they have no record of an incident recorded on dash cams where a Dublin taxi driver chases a cyclist, with both parties running a red light, going to the wrong side of the road and driving on a footpath.
The footage was posted on Streamable and posted on Reddit and recorded on a dash cam of another car. Here’s the video link.
It’s unclear when the footage was taken but it is the third such video to surface in recent weeks. The previous videos are embedded below with permission.
It starts with the dash cam car stopped at a red light at Belvidere Place about to cross the North Circular Road into Belvidere Road going towards Dorset Street / the Drumcondra Road.
The video starts with the bicycle and taxi first out of sight but both quickly overtaking the dash cam car on the left and running the red light.
As the light goes green the dash cam car travels in the same direction as the taxi driver and cyclist — the camera picks up the taxi trying to go into the cycle lane and the cyclist trying to get away from the taxi driver.
The cyclist goes to the wrong side of the road and the taxi driver follows them to the wrong side of the road at the junction where the Belvidere Road meets Dorset Street.
The taxi is blocked by a car going in the correct direction and the taxi driver drives at least partly onto the footpath.
The Garda press office said: “We have no such incidents reported or recorded matching your description,”
Here are still images from the latest incident to surface as posted on Streamable:
