KUALA LUMPUR, July 16 — The 67-year-old man recorded coming under attack in a road rage incident in Kuantan has been ticketed by traffic police for the accident.

According to summary report made available by the police, the man was fined for failing to yield when exiting a junction and causing the accident in which the retiree’s car suffered no damage but caused scratches to the Peugeot 209 driven by the woman shown in the video.

Police said the elderly man noted the woman’s aggression, but opted not to pursue the matter.

“While having his statement taken by the accident investigation officer, the Chinese man stated that the complainant (the woman) had grabbed his shirt and hit his car with a steering lock.

“The officer advised him to lodge a police report but the man said he did not wish to do so and forgives the complainant,” the summary continued.

Earlier, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar confirmed that the 30-year-old woman will be investigated for road-bullying over the incident from July 14.

In the 2.33-minute clip, the Malay woman is shown smashing away at the elderly man’s car following a fender bender and demanding RM2,000 for the accident.

Frustrated that the man would not pay her on the spot, she then abused him racially.

“You think you are Chinese, you are better than us! You are very stupid!” she shouts, before accusing him of intentionally hitting her car.

The woman later shifts her Peugeot forward to examine the damage, before getting in her car and explaining to passers-by that her response was because “Dia Cina (He is Chinese)”.

Internet users later used her vehicle registration number, which was visible in the video, to trace the woman’s identity before posting this information online, prompting more targeted abuse against her.
