A road raging British motorist was caught on camera attacking another man’s vehicle, trying to wrench the door open and then raining blows on the window and roof.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Mark Evans of Stockport was driving his Kia Ceed when another vehicle blew a turn and almost plowed into him.
Evans “instinctively” blew his horn at the other driver, which apparently enraged him. The other car, a Vauxhall Insignia, began to creep down the road ahead of Evans and his 17-year-old passenger — an apprentice with the insurance company that employs Evans.
At one point, the other car stopped in the middle of the road, blocking the way, and the two men inside got out and spat at Evans’ car. One of them was holding a half-empty bottle of whiskey.
Then, as Evans and his passenger idled at a traffic light, the Insignia’s driver came running across the intersection and tried to open the car’s driver side door. Unable to open the locked door, he tried to break the window with his fist, then punched the car again and again.
“Thankfully my car automatically locks as soon as you put the key in the ignition and move off,” Evans told the Evening News. “I used to find it quite annoying but I was really lucky the car has that feature.”
Evans’ passenger — who began filming when the man came across the intersection — shouted at the attacker, “I’ll send this to the police, I’ll send this to the police. Go away now. Stop it, go away.”
“I couldn’t hear what he was shouting — I just remember thinking ‘traffic lights, please change now’. I didn’t want him getting in the car,” Evans recounted. “He had this mad look in his eye and he was so aggressive which was quite intimidating, especially as I knew there was at least one other guy with a half empty bottle of drink who could have joined in.”
Eventually, the attacker left them alone. Evans said he has yet to report the incident to the police.

Stephen Colbert mocks Eric Trump in a way that must be seen to be believed
Stephen Colbert mocked Eric Trump so badly it has to be seen to be believed.
The moment came after Colbert played a clip of the young Trump child saying that 95 percent of the United States supports him, the camera cut to Colbert doing his Eric impression.
"I've got big gums, and I cannot lie," Colbert said.
"Yeah, 95, guys, I'm tellin' ya," Colbert said, pretending to be Eric with his lips curled up.
Black Pennsylvania Trump voter wonders if he’s still welcome in the GOP
Tuesday, CNN released interviews with Texas Trump supporters who defended his racist attacks on four Congresswomen of color. Wednesday night, Van Jones showed his panel of supporters of both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama. But things got tense when a Black Trump supporter was asked about the president's racially charged statements.
Two men, one white one Black, in the group said they supported Trump and probably would again because business was good. Two women in the group lamented that Trump's racism was hurtful for the country.
"I just go back to values," the older women said. "I value treating people with dignity. And if there is anything that is incongruent with those values, then I'm not for that. So I'm not going to put profit over my values."
Don Lemon lists ‘manipulative garbage’ Trump uses to exploit his supporters’ ignorance
CNN host Don Lemon thinks that President Donald Trump is using issues like race to manipulate his voters into voting against their own interest.
In his opening commentary, Lemon showed the clip of Trump's supporters chanting "send her back" at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a Somali immigrant who came to the U.S. when she was just 12 years old.
He then cited a tweet that Trump sent out earlier Wednesday.
"New Poll: The Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in predicting the 2016 Election, has just announced that "Trump" numbers have recently gone up by four points, to 50 percent. Thank you to the vicious young Socialist Congresswomen. America will never buy your act! #MAGA2020," Trump tweeted.
