Video shows violent road-rage brawl on Brisbane motorway
Video of a violent brawl on the Gateway Motorway in Brisbane has emerged this morning, sparking condemnation.
The daylight brawl happened days ago at the intersection with Airport Drive, although the video's time stamp shows an alternative, incorrect date.
In this incident, a near-collision ended with a frenzy of punches.
But the consequences of road rage can be catastrophic.
Earlier this year, Tamate Heke was jailed for six years for the road rage death of Shane Merrigan, who fell into oncoming traffic during a brawl on the same highway.
"The consequences are dire, and they don’t go away, and people need to think about that before they react," Homicide Victims Support Group CEO Brett Thompson said.
"It;s pathetic, it’s not grown up and it reeks of insecurity.:
The RACQ said more drivers with dash cameras and mobile phones meant the public was increasingly exposed to this kind of violence.
"More of us are seeing this horrifying activities on the roads, so it really is shocking and we want it to stop."
