A taxi driver was caught on video in an alleged altercation in traffic
As the other driver attempted to leave the scene before things got out of hand, he hurled a brick at the vehicle
- South Africans condemned his actions but they were impressed by the vehicle's strong windows
On Thursday, the Intelligence Bureau SA posted a video on Facebook showing an alleged road rage incident involving a taxi driver in Johannesburg.
"Road Rage - Corlett Drive, near Melrose Arch. Taxi driver threw a brick at a vehicle," the video was captioned.
The alleged taxi driver is seen arguing with another motorist through a window. He then tries to smash the window using a brick before the other motorist makes a break for it.
The taxi driver then hurls the brick at the minibus and it was caught on video.
South Africans slammed the man's behaviour but they applauded the strength of the window he tried and failed to smash.
Spartan Felix JoJo Shiba-Jaromba commented:
"May our patience be as strong as that window. Amen."
Gaynor Paynter wrote:
"And this is the value of having anti-smash-and-grab on your windows. This driver is also quite clever opening the window slightly. It helps stop it breaking."
Sabelo Phiri added:
"Anti-smash-and-grab-windows. Thanks to this taxi driver, he's helped marketing. We all need to have them."
