Vancouver Driver Chokes Another In Suspected Road Rage (VIDEO)


A video of what appears to be a particularly violent case of road rage in downtown Vancouver has surfaced online.

The footage, shot on June 6 and uploaded to YouTube Wednesday, captures one driver seemingly choking another on Howe Street. (Watch above.)

At the beginning of the video, the alleged attacker is standing at the side of the other man's car, shouting at him. Then he quickly reaches out and grabs him by the neck.

The angry driver lets go after several seconds, swears at the alleged victim, and leaves in a black BMW.

The Reddit user who originally posted the clip said the men got out of their cars "after a verbal fight," but it's unclear how what unfolded before the recorded altercation.

Vancouver police Const. Brian Montague told HuffPost B.C. that there's no record of anyone calling police, or a complaint being filed with the force.

In March, a YouTube video caught an angry driver punching a motorist — with Vancouver police responding to another case just across the street. The man was charged with assault.

Generally, police advise that anyone who sees erratic or aggressive driving to report the behaviour to them.
