Road rage in SA

Arrive Alive's Johan Jonck shares the following advice for motorists: "This is a cowardly physical assault from a standing position to someone seated inside the vehicle. The person should not be named and shamed but criminally charged with physical assault.

"I do believe that not all incidents are 'road rage' - this appears to be more of a 'physical attack' which happens to occur on the road and the person should be criminally charged. Resist the urge to retaliate, be kind and courteous in traffic. Conflict can only continue to exist with participation.
