Toronto is no stranger to incidents of extreme road rage. Just last month, a man suffered minor injuries after he leaped onto the roof of another's man during a traffic altercation between the two.
“There was an altercation. The allegation is the driver (of the blue vehicle), not the car, was struck by the suspect (white) vehicle,” Constable David Hopkinson said of the incident according to Sun.
With driving conditionings worsening due to heavy snowfall and ice, it is likely that more cases of road rage will break out before the season is over. Hopefully, in the future, cooler heads will prevail.
