This is the shocking moment a driver appears to hurl racist abuse at a white woman - for crossing in front of his car too slowly.

It is believed he started bombarding the older woman with abuse because she had crossed the road slowly in front of the his car, according to the Coventry Telegraph.
In the video, phrases such as 'white people' can be heard as his cursing is censored out.
He is eventually guided back to his car where he can be seen lifting his arms threateningly and shouts: 'What you going to do?'
After some more shouting, the woman responds with: 'Go and crash your car.'
Brian Kavanagh filmed the mayhem when he was shopping with his 14-year-old son.
He told the Coventry Telegraph that his son asked him why the man was 'threatening to kill an old lady'.
However the driver cannot be heard saying this in the film.
He added that it was unexpected - particularly as Coventry is 'such a multicultural city'.
West Midlands Police have confirmed they are aware of the video and incident and will be investigating.
