The attack was so violent and relentless the victim feared for his life, and the pictures that we brought you shocked the nation. However the excuse of the man behind the crazed motorway behaviour is hard to believe.
Still raging and still defiant, Australia's angriest driver says that he's actually the victim.
The chilling road rage attack on Ken Olsen certainly got the nation talking, with every heart-stopping moment caught on camera and even Olsen's call to the police recorded.More stories from Today Tonight

Time after time, Olsen was forced to throw road rules out the window to evade a black ute. A former police officer, Olsen says he's never witnessed such a violent road rage incident and believes driving skills honed during his time as a police officer probably saved his life.
"I believe that if I didn't have those skills, he would have driven me into a tree, flipped me over - just caused an accident," he said.
All the evidence he needed was recorded by his dashboard camera, and today (after being exposed on Today Tonight) the accused road rager surrendered himself to police.
As Queensland police investigate, another of his alleged victims has broken her silence.
"He's a maniac and he should not be on the road at all," the alleged victim said.
She's too afraid to reveal her identity, fearing the man who stalked Olsen will again target her. However she remembers being menaced by the same ute with the same distinctive sticker on the back, near where Olsen was chased.
"There's oncoming traffic and he would just cut straight in front of them. He swerved once again out over double lines and back in in front of the truck, and then just floored it. He ignorantly decided he was going to put everyone's lives at risk and do it," she said.
Olsen's life was certainly put at risk as his car was rammed at least seven times.
It seems Australia's angriest driver will need a new defence – as the saying goes, the pictures don't lie.
