A simple dispute between two drivers over right of way in a narrow alleyway escalated into foul-mouthed racial insult trading.
The pair appeared to be engaged in a heated argument after a Sikh taxi driver blocked the narrow street with his cab and refused to move.
Things escalated after the other motorist, who identified himself as a Muslim, stuck behind him appeared to throw a rock at the taxi.

A barrage of both men aggressively shouting ‘f**k off’ and ‘get f**ked’ followed, in footage shot over the fence by a resident in Reservoir, Melbourne.
There was a brief lull as the taxi driver, wearing a bright orange turban, prepared to leave.
He then got outraged as the other man appeared to park by the side of the road, yelling ‘now you park?’ and kicking off the argument again.
‘Go you f**king Indian c**t,’ the other man yelled, to which the taxi driver replied ‘f**k off you f**king bastard’ and spat twice in his direction.
‘Get out of here you f**king useless Indian c**t,’ the Muslim man continued, before appearing to insult the taxi driver’s country.
After the enraged Sikh man yelled more colourful language at his opponent, the unseen motorist threatened to call the police.
The taxi driver was so upset he didn’t care and dared the other man to call the police before yelling ‘f**k your mother, f**k you’.
The pair traded more schoolyard insults until the Sikh man ran out of steam and got into his taxi as the other man shouted ‘and you too, your f**king Indian mother, c**t’.
He had not driven away when the video entered but the argument stopped and relative calm descended on the neighbourhood.
