Gold Coast mother left shaking and crying after road rage incident

A GOLD Coast mother who was almost run off the road by an enraged driver on the Pacific Motorway today has been reduced to tears.

The woman had her one-year-old son in the car when she was confronted by an angry male driver in a silver Ford Territory around 12.25pm this afternoon.

In a hurry to get nowhere fast, the man attempted to over-take the woman while travelling south on the M1 at Nerang, but there was no room.


With her baby boy in the back seat, she slowed down to allow the man in front.

He attempted to get in front of the woman for a second time, but again didn’t have enough room.

Clearly agitated, he swerved directly at her. Fearing for her son’s life, the woman was forced to take evasive action and jump on the brakes.

After multiple failed attempts to over-take, instead of using the opportunity to pass the woman while she had braked, the male driver instead chose to tail gated the woman for approximately 10km until she was able to merge off the motorway at Mudgeeraba.

He then continued on towards Burleigh Heads.

The woman’s sister took to social media to warn others of the potentially dangerous driver.

“Shaking and crying, she has been distraught from this incident and my nephew too,” Tamsin told myGC.

“Please make people aware of this male driver who is dangerous and could target other motorists.”

Thankfully, no one was physically injured.
