The Iowa bicycling community will be closely watching a court trial in Benton County tomorrow.Cyclist Matt Phippen was biking on a country road back in March. He says the driver of a white Dodge pickup truck passed him in an aggressively close manner.

Steven Payne, the driver of the pickup, was fined for the incident. He refuses to pay the $270 in fees and therefore is headed to court.

Phippen says a video he shot of the incident and then posted to YouTube shows while there was plenty of room on left side the road, the driver drove down the center and then hit his truck’s diesel to create a plume of smoke and “make a point.” Phippen had cameras mounted on the front and back of his bike.
