Motorcyclist 'aimed gun at driver's face during road rage attack'
A motorcyclist in Sydney has been charged following an alleged road rage incident in the city’s western suburbs that involved him threatening another driver while armed with a gun.
Authorities have alleged the 30-year-old rider had been travelling alongside a Subaru on Sunnyholt Road in Blacktown on a Friday night in heavy traffic when he left his motorcycle and confronted the driver.
In 10 terrifying seconds caught on dashcam footage, the rider can be seen allegedly removing a firearm from within his pants and pointing it through the windscreen at the driver, before hammering it on the car.

“I’ve just had a motorcycle pull up next to my car and bash my window in,” the frightened driver can then be heard telling Triple Zero authorities.
It is alleged the altercation was sparked minutes beforehand by a disagreement about changing lanes.
The bike then allegedly travelled behind the car until it stopped, before the rider attacked.
