Dashcam footage shows van driver undergoing road rage attack

VisionTrack has released new footage capturing the moment a fleet driver’s windscreen is smashed in a road rage attack.

VisionTrack dashcam footage
VisionTrack has released the footage following a surge in road rage incidents on Britain’s roads.

The court-admissible footage, captured on the VT2000 camera, shows how the driver was involved in a bust-up as they approached a junction close to Heathrow Airport.

A bearded man in his 20s travelling as a passenger in a white BMW leans out of the window and hurls a two-litre bottle of water at the windscreen of the fleet driver.

The bottle shatters the bottom of the fleet driver’s windscreen, obscuring his vision as the water splashes across the screen. The BMW shot off afterwards and so far the attacker has not been apprehended.

The victim has made the footage available to police to deter other road rage drivers by showing how their behaviour can be caught on camera.

VisionTrack managing director Simon Marsh said: “A great way for fleets to protect themselves from road rage thugs like the passenger in this footage is by fitting a dashcam to your vehicle.

“We have released the footage because drivers who endanger other motorists should be aware their actions can be caught on camera and they can be held accountable. This can only help to improve road safety.”
