Cars or vehicles should always be parked on the side of the road. Parking a car in the middle of the car road is dangerous as there is a high chance that another car driver or rider might hit your car from the rear. In case your car breaks down in the middle of the road immediately put on the hazard lamps and try to get the car on the side of the road. In this case, driver was advised to move his car to the side by concerned authorities but, it looks like he refused to follow the rule.
Road rage incidents can happen anytime anywhere so, it is always important to have a cool and calm mind while driving a car on public roads. If you ever get into an argument or road rage, it is best to not have a dialogue with the other person. Never engage yourself in the argument as it can escalate into a fight and always call for help from police.
