    Not sure, last I heard he was having coffee in Williamstown, in Melbourne.
    Any thing else is speculation.

    Prison time? How many times do we hear about drivers escaping prison time when their actions result in the death of a motorcyclist. It will be interesting to hear how this one ends up.

    Best wishes to Mikkey.

  14. Re: road rage gone wrong

    Be careful not to say anything on here that could be later used in a court of law or a court of popular opinion...

    I hope mikkey has a full recovery and I hope the driver is dealt with to the full extent of what the law will allow.

  15. Re: road rage gone wrong

    i hope justice is served.

    out of interest:

    do we know how the driver was caught?

    did the driver hand them self in or just drive off only to be found later via witness testimony?

  16. road rage gone wrong

    This is so horrible.

    He's at my hospital, not my patient. Obviously I'm not going to look him up or post anything, but if he is on the 7th floor then he is reasonably medically stable.

    Poor bugger.

    This is a strong reminder that there is such a thing as road rage going right..

  19. Re: road rage gone wrong

    very sad to hear. Get well soon and as above hope the driver is prosecuted to the full extent the law permits.

    In my non legal opinion, i would think this could be considered attempted murder or manslaughter and the very least.

    That's the stuff of nightmares, I hope he recovers well and I hope the guy who ran him over gets what he deserves. Unfortunately there are insane people out there and every now and then you'll come across one, thankfully it is actually pretty rare to meet a true nutcase.

    I had a similar incident a few weeks ago here in Canberra. I was tailgated through some roadworks, when I (politely) indicated to the bloke that he should back off he went bananas passed me in my lane and brake checked me. When I reached my turn off he swerved sharply across three lanes to intentionally hit me, I had to e-brake to avoid a collision. I followed him to get his rego etc. and reported him to the cops... more than 3 weeks later, after follow up emails and phone calls, as far as I know nothing has happened to him. It pays to be aware of your surroundings and always have an exit strategy, and if you get one of these people behind you make sure they are a long way behind you.
