Road rage sensation Ronnie Pickering, who shouted at a moped rider in 2015, has got a special blue plaque.
His road rage rant made him an Internet sensation overnight.
Ronnie Pickering, who shouted at a moped rider near his home in Hull in September 2015, was filmed by the moped rider.
Pickering, who was in his red Citroen Picasso, shouts, ‘Do you know who I am?’
Pickering then said to the rider who couldn’t recognize him, ‘I’m Ronnie Pickering.’ Pickering apologized to the moped rider later.
The video of Pickering shouting at the rider went viral and he became an internet sensation overnight.
Ronnie said after the incident: “It’s very strange. People will do anything to get hits on the Internet. It’s possible this was a set-up.”
“A lot of people approach me wanting selfies taking with me, but I’m always polite and I always agree.”
“You can’t win. People think, ‘Who does that bloke think he is?’ but if I was rude to them they’d have a go at me for that, too.”
Now, the location has been marked with a blue plaque near The Ship Inn pub in east Hull which reads: ‘Ronnie Pickering. Became an internet sensation near here from his red Citroen Picasso.’
The plaques, which have been erected by a Hull-based company, Drunk Animal Creative Studio, is recognizing living legends from the city.
