Fairfield City Police Area Command Crime Coordinator Senior Sergeant Brett Grenfell has urged drivers to remain calm on the roads in the wake of a rise in reported road rage incidents.

“We are concerned by the increased number of road rage incidents that have been reported to us recently,” Sergeant Grenfell said.

“With a greater number of vehicles driving around with dash-cam footage, it is increasingly likely that any incident between drivers will be captured on camera.    

“All of these road rage incidents are investigated and offenders will be charged where sufficient evidence exists.”

Sergeant Grenfell said if you become involved with an aggressive driver on the road the main thing is to remain calm and don't let minor incidents escalate.

He said motorists should never get out of their car if they are in danger and to contact the police.  

  • If you witness an incident, report the matter to police (triple zero if an emergency or to Fairfield (9728 8399) or Cabramatta (9725 8999) police stations.
