A truck driver with a dash cam captured footage of a brazen road-rage assault between two vehicles.

Frustrated that he couldn't pass slower drivers along a two-lane road, the driver of a black Mitsubishi Lancer swerves into a Mazda 323 in an adjacent lane. As you'll see in the video above, moments later, things get a whole lot worse when the Mazda driver decides to strike back.

Nobody was injured in the incidents, according to local news reports, but a three-car crash with opposite-direction traffic was averted, seemingly by inches. The accident above took place on Feb. 21 in Perth, Australia.

AOL Autos offers these tips to avoid being victimized by road rage:

- If someone is shaking their fist and making threatening gestures, the best move you can make is pull over and let them get away from you, or turn off of your route to get away from the other car. The best way to avoid a fight is to leave it before it starts. If you are late to your destination, so be it.

- If someone has left their vehicle and is confronting you on foot outside of your car, get your doors locked. Calm yourself and turn away. If you have your phone, dial 911 and let the responder know that the police are coming.

-Do not retaliate against a road-rage instigator. You have no idea whether the person has a weapon. Be smart. Try to leave the area of the instigator as quickly and safely as possible. Call 911 as fast as possible.

      I'd like to see the insurance claims on this one! For my part, I am tired of people who drive slow and then, when they should move over so you can pass, speed up just because they want to be jerks. After all, the rule (and in most places the law), is Slow Traffic Stay Left. Road rage like the video isn't excusable, however, as it causes too much collateral damage. My personal workaround is to mount a portable particle beam weapon atop the hood. Puts a heck of a hole through pretty much anything. Timing is important, though, to avoid running into the back of that POS in front as it breaks up and sheds bits every which way!

        When you get that beam developed I would like to purchase one!! It would be so much easier than trying to shoot left-handed out of the window while steering with the right hand (which is something I have actually trained at and pretty much perfected!).

        Let's be fair. Women can be aggressive behind the wheel too.

      Don't know if the other person has a weapon" is a good reason for background checks on handguns and rifles. If a person is so loosely laced that they get "road rage" then perhaps they don't need a weapon. The same for persons who have had DUI's, drug convictions, domestic violence restraining orders, or been convicted anything resembling violence. These people should not have the "right to bear arms".

        Oh right like a backround check would prevent somebody who breaks the law in the first place from getting a gun. Right now someone can grab a bag of weed and a gun and a backround check wont do a dam thing

      Road rage??? it doesn't take much. The other day i was at a stop sign, in front was a Mexican, the light change to green, the driver didn't move, so i beep the horn and he flip me off a number of times. We both started flipping each other off, he pushed my buttons to the point that i wanted to kill him. Mexicans who think they own America, an illegal probably.

      A person I knew... just this past Christmas... was involved in a road rage incident. It started as a fender bender on Christmas morning. The other guy got out of his car with a tire iron in hand. Words were exchanged and my friend turned to go back to his car. The other guy hit him 3 times in the head with the tire iron. My friend was ex-military and instinct took over. He took away the tire iron and stabbed the other guy with it, killng him. He did not remember anything after the first blow to the head. There were several witnesses, and the death was ruled as self-defence. My friend was seen and released by the hospital. Two days later he died in his sleep from an aneurism. Two deaths over a fender-bender. So sad.
