(WMBF) – A driver who was apparently tailgating a cyclist got some instant justice after a thoughtful cop saw what was happening and pulled the driver over – and it was all caught on camera.

A YouTube video posted last month is gaining popularity after it was posted to reddit.com Thursday – it depicts a cyclist speeding down the right lane of a two-lane road. All of a sudden, a Honda CR-V pulls alongside the cyclist, and a police cruiser follows closely behind.

The cyclist and video uploader says in the video description that he thought he was being pulled over. Turns out, the officer saw the CR-V driver tailgating the cyclist, and as he pulls the driver over, he says to the cyclist: "This [expletive] was riding right on your [expletive]! You want me to do something about it?"

The cyclist obliges, and asks the officer to write a ticket.

"I will! I'll put your name on it," the officer replies. "I'll take care of it. I want you to know, I care."
