A furious passenger has been caught on camera unleashing on a motorcyclist in a road rage attack before undercover police pounced in Perth.
The footage was shot on the corner of Altone Road and Reid Highway in Bennett Springs on Thursday afternoon showing a motorcyclist cop a flurry of punches and knees from a passenger who was travelling in a nearby car.
The incident unfolded at the front of the queue of vehicles waiting at traffic lights in full view of passing motorists.

‘We pulled up to the lights and there was a man coming out of his car and he was a bit aggravated,’ witness Mostyn Nannup told 9News.
The assault continued until an undercover police car arrived.
Officers were so desperate to stop the brutal beating that they forgot to put the hand brake on in their car.
The undercover police car drifted into the oncoming intersection, before a bystander chased it down and stopped it.
‘They pulled up behind him and grabbed him and he got a bit aggravated with them and started pushing them, it looked like he was fighting them too,’ Mr Nannup said.
Police tasered the man to sedate him, while the female driver of the car he was a passenger was allegedly drunk behind the wheel.
A 33-year-old man from Koongamia has since been charged with common assault, unlawful damage and obstructing the public, and will face court in January.
The passenger was tasered by police after attack and the motorcyclist was uninjured
