A video of the brawl was shared to Instagram with the caption: “Classic car vs cyclist battle.”
While it is not known exactly where or when the incident took place, it appears to have occurred in Australia in the middle of the day, and it was also seen by several fellow motorists.
The dramatic video shows a grey car stopped at a red traffic light.
The driver can be seen punching the cyclist through the car window, and grabbing him around the right shoulder.
The cyclist fights back as his bike falls to the ground, before he picks it up and appears to attempt to shove it through the window in the driver’s face.
It is not known what sparked the heated exchange.
Of course, it’s not the first time an Australian road rage incident has gone viral.
In January, a foul-mouthed motorist divided opinion online after overtaking two cyclists by swerving on to the bike path and hurling abuse at the riders who were spread out across the road.
A video of the incident, which happened on NSW’s South Coast, was shared widely around social media.
The footage shows the angry motorist driving along Swamp Rd, between Dunmore and Jamberoo, when he comes up to two cyclists riding next to each other on the road despite there being a bike path right next to them.
The driver then swerves on to the cycling path and speeds past the bikers, screaming insults at them as he does so.
“What’s the point of us spending this money if you’re not going to use it, you f***ing d**kheads,” he can be heard yelling out the window.
And last November, a survey conducted by Ford Australia revealed about one-fifth of Aussie drivers had experienced road rage or behaved aggressively towards cyclists.
The survey found road rage was most common among people aged between 18 and 34, with 23 per cent of respondents from that age bracket admitting to swearing, honking their horn or making hand gestures when passing a cyclist, The Guardian reported.
The survey also found one in 10 drivers experienced this type of road rage at least once a month.
