Jeremy Vine has been left shaken after being knocked off his bike by a van.

The 58-year-old was wearing a camera on his helmet so has a recording of the incident, which he shared on social media.

This isn’t the first time that Jeremy has made this kind of post online – he often wears the recording device while cycling, and then publishes clips of drivers that he claims are misbehaving.

In his latest video, shared with his 788,000 X followers, he wrote: ‘This morning. About an hour ago.

‘Illegal right turn, then watch. Unbelievable.’

As the van ran over his bike, Jeremy banged on the back to alert the driver and is heard shouting ‘s**t’ as the events unfold.

The person in control of the vehicle eventually seemed to hear and drove off the bike again, and away from Jeremy who was positioned behind the van.

Someone then appeared and apologised to Jeremy, and helped him to carry the bike onto the pavement.

When Jeremy is asked: ‘Are you okay, sir?’, he responded with ‘Just come over here’.

He later added: ‘Wow’.

One person replied to his tweet containing the footage with: ‘You went through a red light’.

‘It’s green [sic]. Don’t drive. Please,’ he wrote.


He also took screenshots and circled the traffic lights to answer back to X users who questioned whether he had cycled through a red light.

Jeremy has some passionate views on bike safety.

As well as being a crusader against drivers, who he considers to be breaking the rules, he has recently come up with his own ideas for the future.

‘I do think, firstly, we shouldn’t allow any overtaking of bicycles in big cities. That’s one step. And I’m starting to think I want cars to pull over if they see me behind them because they know I’m faster,’ he explained to The Times.
