The road-rage man who was filmed pummelling a woman driver’s windscreen with his fists because he was “irritated” will not face prosecution.

Last month a video of the incident was released by Aichi Prefectural Police who said it was shot in Toyoake City located in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture.

In the footage, the man suddenly runs around the corner and leaps onto the bonnet of a 51-year-old woman’s car.

He then repeatedly rains blows on the glass, and he also appears to have a small rock in his right hand.

After the footage was released, the man was identified as 28-year-old Takashi Kizaki.

He was arrested on charges of damaging property, and reportedly said he was venting his frustration because of “poor physical health” which resulted in him becoming “irritated”.

After the video was widely shared on social media, Kizaki turned himself over to the police in the company of his parents.

He also admitted to kicking the license plate of another car driven by a woman.

Neither of the women suffered any physical harm as a result of his attacks, but both were shocked.

Meanwhile, the Nagoya District Public Prosecutor’s Office has confirmed that the 28-year-old man will not face prosecution for the incidents.

Netizen ‘FreakOutBazaar’ said: “Am I the only one who thinks mental health (along with out of court settlement) was the reason for the non-prosecution? “Irritation” doesn’t cause a person to destroy someone’s windshield to the extent of injuring his own hand.”

‘Tannerleaf’ commented: “How much did his parents pay the people that he smashed?”
