A road rage incident occurred yesterday Thursday June 21) around 3.30pm near the Trinity bus exchange in Lismore when the driver of a black sedan became enraged at the driver of a school bus over a traffic issue.

The driver smashed one of the front windows of the bus and grabbed a windscreen wiper before leaving the area.

Sergeant Mat Johnson of Lismore police told Echonetdaily ’There were no issues with children or members of the public and the bus company has chosen not to pursue it’.

‘Road rage incidents are not acceptable, especially in the vicinity of schools and other public places.’

Sergeant Johnson urged drivers to ’keep calm and get to their destinations safely’.

Drivers are reminded that the speed limit is 40km in school zones and when a school bus has flashing lights.
