The driver told him: "I'm Lebanese mate...I'm going to f*** you. I'm going to f*** your life you son of a b****".

The ute driver told media this morning he was not a violent person and insisted he didn't provoke the incident.

"I didn't hit him and then he got in front of me and he started driving slowly and sticking his finger up. And then he took off - braked - and I was rolling in traffic and I hit his back tyre."

He conceded the situation wasn't right, but said he wasn't a violent person.

New South Wales Police are investigating.
