Former police officer Ken Olsen was taking a weekend drive south of Brisbane in December last year when he was rear-ended by a black ute.
The ute's driver, 21-year-old Edward Sullivan, relentlessly attacked Mr Olsen's car, putting the former police officer through 12 terrifying minutes of mindless road rage.
The attack ended when Sullivan leapt onto the bonnet of Mr Olsen's car and punched in the windscreen, all of which was caught on Mr Olsen's dashboard camera.
Sullivan was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and wilful damage.

The court also ordered Sullivan to pay more than $17,000 restitution for the damage he caused.
However Mr Olsen, unsatisfied by what he sees as a lenient sentence, was left angered by the justice system.
"He (Sullivan) used the vehicle as a weapon against me. If it was any other country, he would have been charged with attempted murder or using a motor vehicle as a deadly weapon," Mr Olsen said.
Mr Olsen also claims he was denied the opportunity to face his attacker because he wasn't told that Sullivan's hearing date had been changed.
Though Mr Olsen has recovered from the shoulder injury he suffered, he says the mental scarring is still with him.
"It's had an effect on me socially, professionally and emotionally," Mr Olsen said.WAS THE ROAD RAGE SENTENCE ADEQUATE?
