Perth man jailed for road rage

A 19-year-old Perth man has been sentenced to 15 months jail for a road rage attack in which he drove into four cyclists.

Adam Mark Stratfold reversed into the group, after one of them tapped on the window of his car on Marmion Avenue in February this year.

One cyclist was thrown over the bonnet of the car and suffered a broken finger and ankle.

District Court judge Mary Ann Yeats said Stratfold showed a persistent rage and careless attitude to the life, health and safety of the cyclists.

Stratfold will have to serve seven-and-a-half months before he can be released on parole.
