Watch as driver calls horse rider 'middle class t***' then yells 'cars don't have to slow down for you' | The Sun

A DRIVER was caught on camera calling a horse rider a "middle class t***" before yelling "cars don't have to slow down for you".

The confrontation was filmed by one rider as she travelled through the Welsh village, Peterston-super-Ely, with a friend.

A man driving the car shouted the remark at her before referring to the other woman as a "Miss HRT Karen".

It happened after both women clashed with the man over his speed claiming he "nearly killed" them.

The driver however maintains he "didn't come anywhere near" them and slowed down as soon as he saw the horse, reports WalesOnline.

One of the riders, who recorded the footage and asked to be anonymous, explained: "We were riding through Peterston-super-Ely and this car came towards us so we asked him to slow down.

"Drivers hate horses on the road but were were in the middle of the countryside."

In the video, the driver can also be heard telling the woman she is "talking like you've got b****cks in your mouth".

He went on to tell the rider "it's a courtesy that people slow down for horses" and "it doesn't matter anyway as I didn't see you coming."

The horse rider said she initially thought the encounter was funny but soon felt "intimidated" as the man continued shouting.

Point 215 of the Highway Code says: "Be particularly careful of horse riders and horse-drawn vehicles especially when approaching, overtaking, passing or moving away.

"Always pass wide and slowly. When you see a horse on a road, you should slow down to a maximum of 10mph.

"Be patient, do not sound your horn or rev your engine. When safe to do so, pass wide and slow, allowing at least two metres of space."
