Rise in road rage

 Monbulk police are urging drivers to be more patient and tolerant following a rise in road rage incidents.

Leading Senior Constable Peter Edyvane said there’d been an increase in minor road rage-type incidents.

“People have got to be a bit more patient,” he said.

“They’re getting cut off at an intersection or a parking spot’s taken.

“People go overboard and they’re starting to threaten people with assault.

“They could end up in front of a magistrate.”
