Russian Road Rage: Van Driver Crashes into Motorcycle [Video]
Now, destroying property is clearly not the way to solve problems in traffic, that's a fact. However, it's a very long way from a broken mirror and running someone over with a van.
And it's the same difference when the police show up: property damage can be easily repaired with some cash (damage and fines), but intently crashing one's car into a motorcycle can really lead to very unpleasant consequences, especially if assault charges are pressed.
And in case the rider sustains any injuries, things are definitely on a downward spiral. That's not what roads have been built for, seriously.
