Police are calling for witnesses to a road rage incident in Belconnen on Tuesday May 2.
Just after 1pm, police got word of a white Holden Rodeo Ute and a white Toyota Van driving fast in the area of William Webb Drive and Owen Dixon Drive, Evatt, crashing into each other several times.
The vehicles continued along Copland Drive, Ginninderra Drive and through Emu Bank, before stopping on the median strip outside Belconnen Police Station on Benjamin Way around 1:20pm.
Police have spoken to both drivers and are now urging witnesses and anyone with dash cam or CCTV footage to come forward.
Acting Station Sergeant Peta Lankester from Belconnen Station has condemned the behaviour.
“Taking your aggression out on the road is extremely dangerous behaviour. Not only does it put you at risk but it causes considerable risk to all road users,” Sergeant Lankester said.
“If you are involved in a confrontational situation on the road, do not engage. Not the registration and details of the vehicle and driver and report it to police.”
Those concerned about their safety are urged to call 000.
