iN VIDEO: Kamloops man captures B.C. road rage over his Alberta licence plates

A man in Kamloops has taken to YouTube after multiple road rage incidents made him fear for his safety on the road.

Laine Anderson said the incident on this dashcam video was the third time he's been subjected to another person on the road driving erratically towards him.

Anderson has an Alberta license plate on his vehicle and his family recently moved to Kamloops, but he still spends time in Alberta until they sell their house.

He is often honked at, given the middle finger or yelled at, he said. But in the video uploaded to YouTube Feb. 21, a driver in a B.C.-plated Jeep was stopping aggressively in front of Anderson and refusing to let him pass.

Anderson started his YouTube channel "B.C.'s Best Drivers" after some of his recent clashes with other drivers.

Kamloops RCMP have not stated that this is a recurring issue, but they encourage drivers who have dashcam footage of incidents like this to reach out if they've felt unsafe.
