All the vehicles following him were saying rather naughty words to him, such as' old bean desist from doing thtat' lol

I'd quite often see that behaviour when I was still driving a Black Cab.
It wasn't just guys on skates, you'd see cyclists doing it too.
I've even had them hang on the side of the taxi.
To discourage it I'd slowly drift to the left, so that eventually it was either they hit the kerb, or let go.
