Female driver forced to stop in fast lane of M25 in road rage attack

A female driver was forced to stop her car in the fast lane of the M25 in a terrifying road rage incident.

The Daily Mail reports that the women, who was driving a silver BMW, had been tailgated by a foreign-registered Mercedes. The car then undertook the BMW, before pulling back in front and coming to an abrupt stop, forcing the driver to slam on her brakes. The male driver then got out of the car, walked up to the BMW and punched the windscreen, causing it to crack.

BBC News reports that the incident occurred between Junction 11 and Junction 10 in Surrey, just before 8:30pm on Friday night.

After punching the windscreen, Surrey Police said that the man got back into his car, which is believed to be a left-hand drive, and drove off. The woman managed to move her car to the hard shoulder before calling for help.

Detective Sergeant Gary Hutchings, from Surrey Police, said: "Forcing a vehicle to stop on the fast lane of a busy motorway is an extremely dangerous thing to do and this incident could have had serious consequences.

"Fortunately the woman was not injured but she has understandably been left very shaken by what happened.

"I am appealing for anyone who was driving on this section of the M25 and may have seen what happened to come forward."
