A motorist who allegedly lost his cool on Highway 99 has lost his ride for seven days and was also fined $305.
Cpl. Robert McDonald, of the RCMP's Lower Mainland Traffic Services, said a 40year-old man driving a 1996 black Nissan Maxima "chose to take the matter into his own hands" after a 52-year-old man driving a 2012 black Jeep Wrangler apparently cut him off, when they were heading south on Highway 99 in Delta at about 10 o'clock Friday morning.
McDonald said the Nissan's driver followed the other fellow dangerously close, taunting and threatening him. The driver of the jeep called 911, fearing for his safety, and police intercepted the Nissan near Highway 99 at Ladner Trunk Road.
The Nissan's driver was charged with driving without reasonable consideration for others and following too closely.
"Driving in a dangerous manner out of anger, no matter what another person has allegedly done, is clearly not accepted or tolerated," said Sgt. Lorne Lecker, of Deas Island Traffic Services.
