A PERTH motorist has uploaded a shocking video of a road rage incident in which she is racially abused and intimidated by a TNT courier driver.
The video which is just over one-minute long was recorded on Thursday and uploaded to the TNT — The People Network Facebook page on Friday morning.
The footage shows the truck driver leaning into the woman’s car through her open driver’s window and swearing in her face.
At one point he asks her: “What f***ing land are you from?”.
He then goes on to ask her if she is “f***ing Arab or something”.
He also asks if she is a “f***ing Muslim c*** are ya?”.
In posts to her Facebook page and the TNT’s Facebook page the woman said the driver’s “big truck” had “rear ended” her two-door Holden Astra “several times” before the recorded confrontation.
In the video the confrontation quickly gets heated with the man calling the woman a number of sexist expletives.
The exchange lasts some time before the man walks away from the car making rude hand gestures.
But before the video stops, he returns to the woman’s car and smacks his fist on the glass of her front window.
She posted underneath the video on the company’s page: “I have damages to my car that require compensation”.
A TNT spokeswoman confirmed to PerthNow they were aware of the video “depicting one of its drivers” involved in the altercation.
“TNT is investigating the matter and is in the process of contacting the driver involved and will take appropriate action,” she said.
“TNT Australia expects its entire staff to behave in a courteous and professional manner at all times.”
In the woman’s posts to Facebook she said TNT have called her and been told their investigators are onto it.
“TNT definitely know about it,” she said on her Facebook page.
“Have lots of people calling me today to deal with this but TNT have been really good and I’m just trying to sort my thoughts and my processes out.
“Paperwork and affidavits to organise and notarise docs etc.
“Thanks for the lovely messages.”
PerthNow has contacted the woman who uploaded the video for comment.
