There's no shortage of road bullies. Here's an incident that's going viral in South Africa. It occurred on Witkoppen Road in Fourways in South Africa and was recorded on a cell phone by the driver of a following vehicle.
The eyewitness wrote on YouTube:
"A Porsche was driving recklessly down Witkoppen road towards four ways from sunning hill. At one of the traffic lights the passenger of the Porsche threw something out of the window at the car behind them.
When the driver of the targeted vehicle hooted ( and probably flipped him the bird and rightly so ) the Porsche then proceeded to swerve in and out in front of the other car until coming to a stop at the next robot where the passenger of the Porsche got out of the vehicle and started to kick and bash the other car door and side mirror
I recorded most of the event except where the thug repeatedly punched the other driver in the face. We stopped and helped the other driver find his keys and calm down. Also called 10111 to report suspected drunk/reckless driving and assault on Witkoppen road to which they replied, "report it at the police station". What the hell does that do for other innocent drivers in the path of these troglodytes?"

Over time, as with so many other things, prices came down, and automatic cars went mainstream, especially in the US. Today, most people drive an automatic, something that was unthinkable forty years ago, just like it was unthinkable that most people would have airbags. But it happened, nonetheless. Read more
It’s a sad fact that car accidents are very common all around the world, and one of the leading causes of death, even in developed nations. It’s also an unfortunate fact that the large majority of traffic collisions are caused by human error in some way. While most people will stick to road laws and drive carefully, there’s no such thing as a perfect driver. Here are some of the most common causes of car accidents, and how you can avoid them.
