I request the help of Canberrans in identifying a person or vehicle which rammed our family car on Sunday night (3 May) at 6.15 pm.
The driver first stopped at traffic lights of Marconni & Drakeford Drives Kambah at an angle to the lane, then proceded to drive at about 20kmh under the speed limit. When I moved into the middle lane to pass him, he attempted to side swipe me.
Obviously annoyed that I avoided that collision, the driver then proceded to speed up behind me and ram me at a travelling speed of around 80kmh, nudging me straight on to the rear of my car.

As I didn’t instantly react, he then speed up even faster, and rammed me harder on the drivers rear corner, presumably trying to spin me out.
I had my wife and daughters aged 3 and 6 on board. There was a good dozen cars around, so someone must have got the details of this insane person.
The incident was completely unprovoked, and the driver appeared to be either under the influence or part of a dare, judging by the lengths he took to crash through log barriers, then across Kambah East Ovals at high speed.
The offenders car was a dark coloured early model Mitsubishi Pajero. If anyone saw this incident, or hears of anyone bragging, or see’s a dumped car of this description, please respond, or call ACT Police.
In the mean time, I will be trying to get my hands on camera footage from the speed camera at this intersection where he stopped prior to the ramming.
From all the reports I have seen online regarding ramming incidents, most end up resulting in deaths. This maniac needs to be caught and removed from society.
