An marketing executive has been in court over a road rage incident.

Matthew Ware, 46, “foolishly” got out of his car and shouted after an incident in London Road, Lynn, in August last year.

Ware, of York Street, Norwich, admitted a charge of disorderly behaviour in West Norfolk Magistrates Court earlier today (Friday, January 15).

Prosecutor Sally Rose told the bench that motorist Michelle Wilson was driving towards the Southgates Roundabout at 5.20pm.

The hearing was told that she saw a dark coloured car waiting and drew in front.

Ware got out of his car and then began to swear.

Mitigating Ruth Johnson said this was out of character for Ware and that his frustration from a family issue had spilled over.

Miss Johnson said the traffic was stationary when he made the “exceptionally foolish” decision to get out of the car.

She said: “He always trys to obey the rules of the road perhaps why he got frustrated.”

The court heard that Ware had an unblemished character and works fulltime for a marketing agency.

Magistrates fined Ware £600. He was ordered to pay £85 costs and £60 victim surcharge.
