Lady v tradie: Roadside brawl captured by dashcam
DASHCAM footage has once again captured an ugly scene on Australian roads, this time confronting footage of a tradie and a female driver punching each other.
The latest incident happened in Caroline Springs, Melbourne, on Monday at a busy intersection and appeared to begin when the female driver prevented the tradie from entering a right-turning lane.
The tradie was towing a trailer and had just moved partly across the intersection, reported 7 News, which broadcast the footage.
It showed the man blaring his horn at the woman, before they both got out of the vehicle and began to fight.
A man who was in a vehicle behind intervened as the punches were thrown. The two could also be seen pushing and shoving each other.
The man who tried to intervene told 7 News the scene was "absolutely disgusting".
The woman and witnesses to the incident have been interviewed by police, but officers are still trying to identify the tradie.
It follows an incident last month on the Central Coast where a man was filmed punching a woman in the face in a road rage incident.
The man in that incident was charged with assault while the woman he allegedly assaulted, Bianca Sams, 22, was charged with malicious damage, being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence and intentionally throwing an object at a moving vehicle. She was also charged for having part of her body outside the car window and for not wearing a seatbelt.
Sams and the man were travelling in separate cars along the Pacific Highway in Lake Munmorah when the incident occurred at an intersection.
