Get a free sample and try for yourself. Now to that motorcycle road rage making so many headlines this week. Tonight police are going over that tape frame by frame and so are we to show you how to escape trouble. Here's abc's linzie janis. Reporter: The video, shot on helmet cam by one of the riders, is extreme. Dozens of motorcycles versus an suv. But road rage is nothing new. In fact, cases of road rage are on the rise, blamed for more than 1,000 deaths in the last five years. In california, heavy traffic proves too much for this lawyer and retired cop, so they square off in the street. The best way to avoid it from the beginning, is to do like this california man does in this video. Don't engage, and don't make eye contact. But if you're in a situation you can't avoid, what should you do? We showed former nypd lieutenant and security expert, david boehm, the helmet cam tapes. For him, they are a teachable moment. Reporter: Boehm says after g1 did, make sure you drive slowly. You want to keep your car under control and if you are moving you want to move at a safe speed. And you want to stay on a main highway or roadway if you're being followed. Reporter: And don't drive home. Ask the 911 operator where the police station is or search for it on your gps. It might seem like common sense but lock your doors these doors are actually opened by one of the individuals. Reporter: As for the investigation, christopher cruz seen right here cutting off the suv was arained today. His lawyer says he's not guilty and there is more to the story. It doesn't show everything that happened before. Reporter: More than anything that's what officials want to find out. Linzie janis, abc news, new york.
