One viewer said: ‘Why  can’t people just go to their destination without trying to have a war with others on the road….Whether something happened before this or not, why jump out of the car with a weapon?’ 

‘You achieve absolutely nothing other then getting yourself worked up over nothing,’ they added. 

Another stated: ‘Regardless what happened beforehand, no excuse to jump out and attack another motorist.’ 

While a third person commented: ‘They always show the response but not what they did to get the response…They would have footage of that too but chose not to show it.’ 

‘Playing the victim when you were probably the instigator,’ they added.
