Viral road rage sensation Ronnie Pickering now has his own blue plaque in Hull

A man who became an internet sensation after a video of his road rage went viral has been honoured with a blue plaque in his native city of Hull.

In September 2015, Ronnie Pickering made headlines after he had a go at a moped driver near his home who dangerously cut him off, shouting those famous words:

Do you know who I am? I'm Ronnie Pickering!

Now, to immortalise the legend forever, Pickering is getting his own blue plaque in Hull. The plaque was put up by Drunk Animal Creative Studio through their "Alternative Heritage" initiative, which aims to pay tribute to "living legends and stories that make our city special".

The plaque, which is near the Ship Inn pub in east Hull reads:

Ronnie Pickering. Became an internet sensation near here from his red Citroen Picasso

Pickering later apologised to the moped rider, admitting that he had overreacted.
