This is sad, and so unnecessary. A life lost is always unnecessary.

But, it does highlight the need for road users to practise restraint and respect for others.

true! and NEVER pull a gun, if you're not prepared to get shot yourself

I had to defend a client in a criminal case last year when two men argued about a parking space at Tyger Valley centre which turned ugly. Both very nice guys and so easy to see how it escalated . Such a waste of manpower , but fortunately they could live and put the lessons learnt to good use .

It's so easy to snap in SA where we are faced with so much violence . Put a bit of hunger, tiredness , bad traffic , bad day , fight with the boss/ wife , race conflict and it could happen so easily. We can all say we will never do something like that ,but every person has a breaking point.

Rest and peace , and condolences to the family.

I was talking about the two guys in my case.  The snr SP agreed to settle it in his office. So the whole story was told in the greatest of detail and yes I could see how it escalated bit by bit . My client has never been involved in any anger issues in his life , but yes in this case I could see how they provoked each other and it escalated so quickly. But ,in the end a small donation was paid and the two left the office almost best of friends. This was almost a year after the incident so I guess they had cooled off by then.  :biggrin:

Johannesburg - A motorcyclist shot dead in an apparent road-rage confrontation in Johannesburg on Friday had assaulted the man who shot him, police said.

The 39-year-old biker and the sedan driver, 44, had an argument while driving on Malibongwe Drive just after Witkoppen Road, said Lt-Col Katlego Mogale.

They both pulled off the road, the biker confronted the driver and the argument got heated.

“The biker allegedly assaulted the motorist who in turn fired shots, fatally wounding him.”

The motorist was injured. He was treated on the scene by paramedics before being transported to hospital under police guard.

His condition was described as serious.

Police recovered firearms from both men. They had been taken for ballistic testing, said Mogale.

Police had opened a murder docket.

Thanks Arcangel . : " Eyewitness, Jedde Kasamba, said he saw a white man on a motorbike stop in front of the car and start shooting at an older black man who then ducked down for his gun and shot back"

Not really surprised that race played a part. Sadly that tends to escalate things even quicker . :'(

Do then, as per IOL's article the biker did not have a gun ..... and was shot. WTF has race got to do with it? We have had a number of stories of bikes been knocked over by cagers and in the main white's, so now it is a race thing and a road rage thing ......... yeeees lets blame apartheid.

My feelings was also that race was pulled in to justify the shooting. It's not even clear whether the biker fired a shot, he could have hit the driver on the head with the gun, then walked back to his bike... Car driver pulls gun from seat and shoots biker in the back?
