Video wrap-up: 6 top videos of the week

Cape Town - This week delivered a number of strange videos ranging from the absolute bizarre to down right crazy.

In Gauteng a woman displayed a fair bit of rage because someone was filming her and in Cape Town a taxi driver met his match when a bakkie driver refused to give him/her any freedom to drive in a disorderly manner.

We also had international videos coming through our gates, but one that stood out was a Porsche 911 driver who lost control of his car on a very wet Nurburgring track.

In no particular order, here is our list of top videos of the week:

The driver recording her rant can be heard saying that she was driving in the middle of the intersection. A third motorist arrives to defuse the situation. The incident could've turned violent as the uploader had pepper spray prepared. The driver's daughter can be heard saying: "what does that spray do?"
