Angry Motorist Confronts Lorry Driver But Awkwardly Forgets To Put Handbrake On

It's always a bit awkward trying to confront someone with conviction - especially when your car starts rolling behind you mid-argument, which is exactly what happened to one woman in Merseyside. Watch below:

The viral footage from a few years back shows a disagreement between two motorists on a street on the Wirral.

Scott McCready, from Rock Ferry, Birkenhead, was caught up in the incident when a woman confronted him one morning back in September 2019.

Thankfully, his friend was around to capture the whole thing on film, with footage showing a black Vauxhall drive on the pavement of the narrow street and overtake his lorry.

It then slows down and stops, as the driver leaves her vehicle with the car door still open and storms up to his window, before proceeding to yell at him.

However, Scott - who owns Mammut Plant Hire in Birkenshead - quickly interrupts her and says: "Your car's rolling. Put your handbrake on."

The woman then panics, turns around and runs after her car, which is seen rolling down the street as the people inside the cabin of the lorry can be heard in fits of laughter.

She then returns to berate him once again (this time with a stationary car, which is blocking the road) and says: "You know when you put your finger up to me? You were on camera."

Scott replies: "Did you not put it up to me?"

In front of the mobile phone, she then says: "I'm not on camera, you are."

A voice from inside the lorry then says: "You are now, you f***ing divvy."

Walking away by this point, the woman quickly turns around and appears to flip the bird to the wagon, as someone in the cabin laughs: "Hey, I've just got that on camera."

Speaking to the Liverpool ECHO, 36-year-old Scott said: "It's quite funny really that her car started rolling downhill. But when you watch it several times, you start to see a bit more of a serious side to it.

"It was a potentially dangerous manoeuvre to overtake on the pavement and she's lucky that nobody is hurt."

After posting the video on to Twitter, dozens of people commented, with one saying: "Can't believe you told her her car was rolling, I'd have just watched." Brutal.

Another added: "I don't think there's anything more quintessentially British and in turn cringe than two people arguing over who's got whom on camera."
