Foreigner With His Son in Road Raging Traffic Incident with Cambodian Men on St 163, Phnom Penh

24 May 2017. There was a minor traffic incident in St 163 Phnom Penh yesterday between a foreigner and a local car driver when the car door of the foreigner's car apparently scraped the other car's door. Words were exchanged...

It's always the barang's fault! Seriously, even when it's not, it's the barang's fault.

The foreigner wasn't road raging, he was trying to get back in his car (most likely for his safety and to look after his kid) whilst waiting for the police to arrive but the locals were aggressively trying to stop him from doing so because they obviously assumed he would flee the scene.

Agreed.

TBF, when many Cambodians get back in the car, they go on a driving rampage...

Well they assume that because that is their MO. Doubt a dash cam would help in this instance.

Not blaming him, they were manhandling him way too much, but it might have helped if he was able to speak even simple Khmer.

Cool. While not clear to any of us exactly what happened, I moved "road raging" to describe the incident, not the Barang.

A misunderstanding and slight over-reaction for a minor traffic incident ?
Let's hope that cooler heads prevailed and the situation calmed down after this:

Poor kid. Based on the video, though, it seems like the foreigner overreacted a tad. But maybe if my kid was in the car and someone tried to manhandle me, I'd do the same thing.
