The biker‚ Sean Nysschen‚ filmed the stand-off with his helmet-mounted camera while travelling along Sloane Street when he had to brake abruptly to avoid hitting the oncoming minibus.
Nysschen shared the footage of the incident on Facebook on October 8.
The taxi driver was tracked down at the Ivory Park taxi rank and arrested for reckless and negligent driving.
He appeared in court on November 22 and was found guilty and sentenced to three months’ imprisonment or a R6,000 fine.
“He paid the R6,000 fine and was warned not to commit the same offence for a period of three years,” said the JMPD.
