Spoiler alert – the man in the Holden hatchback above is not a conscientious road user.
This is relatively easy to ascertain by the fact that he waved an axe out of his window and repeatedly rammed another car in a fit of rage.
The incident took place last year in picturesque Byron Bay on the New South Wales coast, but the footage has only been made public now.
The young driver under siege attempted to head to a police station while the axe-wielder gave chase.
According to 9News, a 47-year-old man pleaded guilty to predatory driving and being armed with intent in connection with the incident.
He was sentenced to two years with a non-parole period of 10 months.
A warning that there is some (understandably) colourful language in the dashcam footage below:
In the comments below the YouTube video, the driver who came under attack gave his version of events:
The footage takes place after a totally random attack that occurred on the street from which we fled and got into the car and then the chase takes place. The attacker was very paranoid, clearly affected by something like meth or ice, and was convinced that we had robbed his house the night before.
We had never been in that area before in our lives, and we had nothing to do with the attacker in any way prior to the attack. The “ice deal gone wrong” or “must have cut him off” theories are fun, but we’re just a couple of normies minding our own business.
He said that he and his passenger eventually reached a police station where officers were waiting.
Lay off the meth, kids.
