Thats not the finger wed have given

Biker rearended by car lands on his feet and then gives driver thumbs up

THIS is the moment a biker rear-ended by a car lands on his feet and then gives the driver a thumbs up.

The footage shows the rider pull up at an intersection in Canberra, Australia, before being thrown into the air by a car involved in a three-vehicle pile up behind him.

Following the incident, the helmet camera footage was uploaded to YouTube by Matthew Sant, rider of the Honda CBR250R in the video.

A message posted with the video said: 'Travelling along Canberra Avenue towards the city in an 80km/h zone. Traffic had backed up ahead and come to a stop.

'As I came to a stop I checked my mirror and moved to the right of the road in case the car behind wasnt paying attention. I saw him come to a stop and relaxed, looking away. The next thing I knew I was looking at the sky - was the guy three cars back that didnt stop.'

The video has currently been viewed over 400,000 times and has prompted a plea from a motorcyclists' group for drivers to be more vigilant.

Nicky Hussey, from the Motorcycle Riders Association of the ACT, said: 'We ought to remind other drivers that we are vulnerable and they need to do the right thing on the roads because it could easily have been a terrible accident, with lots of injuries.

'All road users are entitled to be on the road and therefore everybody has to do their bit to make sure everybody else is safe.'
