The police and the company should be notified. Also try worksafe if you can accurately identify the truck or company.
That said in my experience the operators of these are normally VERY good on the roads. They know they have a massive vehicle and they know that sometimes they will just have to wait, often THEY are the slow ones. Also their operators are use to dealing with danger and making ration safety decisions.
Yeah I've had the same experience with these guys, normally very good. However I have also seen on occasion misjudge their stopping distances and come to an abrupt halt. Also in retrospect the abuse from the driver's cabin was coming from the passenger side, so maybe the driver wasn't totally aggressive more of a misjudgement??

I'm an Architect and most of my work is large scale commercial and large Hospitals etc and we have to take OHS very seriously, especially with high risk and complex work. Often when acting as Superintendent or as part of our Project Management role we have to report OHS issues and submit reports. If I find who is the PM on the project these guys are involved in I'll be making an OHS submission to them and to their OHS rep, to which they'll be legally bound to follow up and report.
Happy days... they've placed someone in the know, within they're industry, in a position of danger and will hopefully be required to undertake due process to placate their employers and the relevant authorities.
