A young woman who drove through an empty parking lane to cut in front of cars stopped at traffic light has sparked a road rage dispute – with viewers divided over whose side they are on.
Dashcam shows the P-plater skipping the queue on Rawson Street, Auburn in Sydney’s west during the morning peak hour rush on Friday.
However, the driver of the silver Toyota isn’t having a bar of the pushy move – accelerating forward in an attempt to reclaim their place in line.

The driver can be seen waving his fist at the young motorist before his car clips the front bumper of her green hatchback – prompting her to jump out take a picture of the damage.
The lights turn green and both cars drive off, however, the P-plater then almost immediately veers in front of the car with the dashcam equipped at the last second, almost causing another collision.
Some of the 1,400-odd people commenting on the video said the driver of the green hatchback was at fault not only for pushing in but for crossing an unbroken line between lanes.
‘Unfortunately, a lot of drivers think their blinkers are forcefields and by putting them on they thing they can go wherever they want,’ one person said.

‘She needs to lose her P plate licence. And have 10 more driving lessons, before getting it back with that attitude,’ agreed another.
Though many other argued she may have made a mistake and the silver Toyota driver overreacted.
‘The reason they can get in is because there is a large gap. The attitude of the silver car driver is bad. You should give way to other drivers whenever safe, especially L and P-platers,’ argued one person.
‘If someone makes a mistake that doesn’t give you the right to damage their property,’ added another.
‘So she did the wrong thing. Toot her or shake your head at her but seriously road rage? No need for that,’ a third said.
