A fist fight during rush hour at a busy Omaha intersection was caught on cell phone video by another driver. 

The road rage footage shows two drivers blocking traffic to fight at 120th and L streets. The incident happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday, but it's unclear what events led up to the fight.

The video shows the two men outside of their cars and exchanging blows before the men went into their separate vehicles and drove away. 

 

 

Cornhusker Driving School says incidents like this are all too common. Instructors say it's important to never engage the other driver if you find yourself in a road rage incident. 

"You know, on the road today, you'll find there are plenty of other drivers just trying to get their attention," said Pat Venditte, Cornhusker Driving School. "They maybe look over or pretend like they are driving in and out of a lane or maybe they'll even cut us off, maybe they are tailgating."

Cornhusker Driving School says if you find yourself in a situation with another driver, do not engage, do not make eye contact and continue on your way. It's also important to be a courteous driver and not tailgate or use your horn at other drivers.
