Shocking video shows biker riding opposite the traffic to escape robbers

The incident occurred in Brazil

A terrified man made the split second decision to turn his bike around in the middle of a motorway after two people ‘shot at him’ in an attempted robbery.

Eduardo Pimenta, 56, was driving on the Fernão Dias Highway towards Atibaia in São Paulo, Brazil, when he was accosted by the men on another motorcycle.

During the incident last Sunday the retiree risked going against the flow of traffic on the wrong side of the road, coming perilously close to lorries and cars, to escape.

The shocking footage was recorded on Mr Pimenta’s helmet camera shows him riding calmly down a motorway before deciding to turn around after two bikers ahead of him started shooting at him.
