The passenger in her car caught the moment on video as he threatened her with physical violence, saying: ‘I’ll get out of the car and slap you!’
In the video, the man is seen arguing with her after the altercation, saying that the traffic warden should be giving him directions.
He yells at her, saying: ‘D***head, is that your job or her job?’
She replies, saying: ‘Well listen to her then.’
He continued: ‘I f****ing will you p****. Shut your mouth, you d****head.’
When she warns him that he is being recorded, he continues the torrent of abuse, saying: ‘So what? I’ll slap that phone right out of her hand….
‘This stupid b***** talking s***. You f***ing idiot, I’ll get out of the car and slap you.’

Beth uploaded the video to Twitter on Friday afternoon, writing: ‘U ok mate? Tried to cut in at the petrol station ahead of a 2 hour queue by ramming.
‘Threw a coffee out of the window (at a closed window) then this.’
It comes as Government ministers admitted lengthy queues at petrol stations are likely to continue for at least another week.
Policing Minister Kit Malthouse said this morning that the fuel situation should be resolved in a ‘week or so’.
Mr Malthouse said there needs to be an ‘improvement’ in the situation in the coming days and that Boris Johnson stands ready to review matters if there is any deterioration.

However, pictures showed that approximately 40 reserve petrol tankers continued to sit in storage in Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire this morning despite the ongoing fuel crisis.
Pictures taken today in Kent, Reading and London showed panic buying continuing, while bus routes were subject to delays in the early hours of the morning as huge queues continued to form at forecourts across much of the country.
Average fuel levels at UK petrol stations yesterday were at 20 per cent for the third day running – less than half the normal figure of 43 per cent – but Whitehall analysis showed a drastically varying picture by region.
Mr Malthouse’s downbeat assessment contrasted sharply with comments by other ministers in recent days that the situation would swiftly return to normal as drivers resumed their usual buying patterns.
It follows a warning by the Petrol Retailers Association that filling stations were running out of fuel faster than they could be resupplied, with one in four forecourts having run dry.
