Caller relays how she was a victim of road rage, was spat on and screamed at

Caller Annie says she was driving into Cape Town CBD on Friday afternoon when she was forced to brake after a car stalled in front of her on the highway.

She says the motorist behind her stepped out of his car, verbally attacked her and then repeatedly spat in her face.

She says onlookers and a nearby security guard did nothing to assist her.

I was in the most right hand lane turning into Helen Suzman toward sea point and the car in font of me had stalled completely. I was stuck behind the car.
