Road-rage driver leaps out of his car and threatens to 'smash' motorcyclist's face because he and his learner daughter are doing 20mph in a 40mph zone

An enraged driver threatened to 'smash' a motorcyclist's face in the middle of a busy road because he and his learner daughter were doing 20mph in a 40mph zone.
Richie Curtis, 49, who is originally from St. Albans but now lives in Jarrow-On-Tyne, South Tyneside, captured the moment the irate driver steps out of his white Ford and threatens to fight him in front of other drivers in Boldon, South Tyneside on June 30.   
The furious driver holds his fists up in the air for a fight before walking over to the pavement and telling the puzzled motorcyclist to: 'Go back home!'
Body-cam footage filmed by Mr Curtis shows the unnamed driver hurl verbal abuse at the motorcyclist and continuously sound his horn as he approaches a roundabout with his eldest daughter and a friend who both have L plates.

As they pull up to the roundabout, Mr Curtis, who moved to the north east of England in 1996, dismounts his bike and walks over to confront the driver asking: 'What's your f***ing problem?' 
The angry driver emerges from his car and gestures to the motorcyclist to walk to the pavement so they can fight as a line of cars wait behind them.
He holds his fist up in the air and tells Mr Curtis: 'Go back home you southern f***ing c***'.         
He then shouts: 'You're driving 20 in a f***ing 40 you daft little c***.'
Mr Curtis explains he has a learner with him but the man refuses to listen and tells him: 'You better f*** off away from me or I'm going to smash your f***ing face in.'
The motorist later explained that his eldest daughter and his friend, who past her CBT motorcycle and moped training test in January, had been riding in front of him when he was met with the angry abuse.
Mr Curtis, whose youngest child was also sat at the back of his bike with him, said: 'I was assisting my friend in front as she passed her CBT in January. 
'This was her first time on the bike due to Covid-19 and she was very nervous and struggling with the gears. Then this guy got impatient from behind and started blowing his horn and tailgating me. The rest you can see in the video.
