ACT Policing has released dash cam footage of a road rage incident on Sulwood Drive, Kambah on Monday, 7 May 2018, and is seeking the public’s help to identify one of the vehicles and its driver.
The footage shows black Toyota Kluger pulling alongside of a smaller vehicle it was following and deliberately veering into it, causing both vehicles to momentarily lose control. The Kluger turns across the face of traffic to speed away in the opposite direction.
Police said the incident occurred at 2.55 pm heading west on Sulwood Drive, Kambah, between Drakeford Drive and Kambah Pool Road.
OIC Traffic Operations, Sergeant Marcus Boorman said the driver of the Kluger had been totally irresponsible and anyone who viewed that footage would find it disturbing that someone would engage in that sort of dangerous driver behaviour.
“It’s quite apparent that the actions of that driver were deliberate. They are a danger and need to be dealt with accordingly,” he said.
Sergeant Marcus Boorman said the consequences could have been drastic and while no one was injured the driver of the rammed vehicle would have been shocked by the experience.
He appealed to the driver of the Kluger to come forward because the matter would not go away.
Sergeant Boorman said any form of road rage was unacceptable and he appealed to drivers not to take matters into their own hands and obey the road rules.
If you have information that can identify the black Toyota Kluger or additional dash-cam footage of the collision please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the website.
