Austin, Texas - Traditions like stick-fighting is an age-old practices best left on ancient battlefields or viewed as part of cultural displays and should not, as is the case in a recent Twitter video, be used to resolve traffic disputes.
A video posted on twitter shows a bizarre road-rage incident in Austin, Texas - two drivers (one armed with a baseball bat and the other what appears to be a long pole) engaged in a bat-and-pole battle at an intersection.
What could've possessed these two men to ditch common sense in such a brutal way?
Poor conflict resolution
It seems that bat-wielding driver might have been slighted first as he approaches the bakkie driver weapon in hand.
The bakkie driver strikes first however.
Watch the video below: Note the flourish of the baseball bat
