‘I’m Ronnie Pickering’ has been found – and he’s defending his road rage


He dropped the c-bomb and threatened a knuckle sandwich within seconds – but the road rage driver Ronnie Pickering isn’t an “aggressive guy” really.

Hull resident Pickering has defended his apoplectic behaviour towards a motorcyclist, who recorded the rant and uploaded the footage to YouTube, which has now reached more than a million views and counting.

Pickering told Hull Daily Mail: “He really got to me. I am not an aggressive guy. He was baiting me so I thought I would give him a few of my thoughts.”


The portly 54-year-old, who was on his way home from Asda, then went on to describe how he saw the incident.

“I heard a tap, which I thought was the driver using his boot to hit my car. I don’t know why he did this. He overtook a load of cars that was queueing. He encroached into my safety gap.”

The footage filmed on GoPro showed the Northerner shaking his fist before repeating ‘Do you know who I am’, which has since become an internet joke.

Pickering added: “I was wanting to turn right, but he wouldn’t go. I felt as though he was baiting me.”

If only Ron could have apologised as quickly as he went postal…
