Road rage alert.
Driving to work this morning thee was a SUV going under the limit with 3 cars behind him, I was last in that line of 3. So I pulled into the left lane to go around and then noticed after realizing I had not yet passed the SUV that I was going almost 80 so I slowed down and pulled back in the the right lane behind and then when I exit came up the SUV also exited in fount of me (why I used a blinker I will never know) As soon as we where on the exit he puts on the breaks and tries to box me in but the exit was originally 2 lanes that had been repainted to one so I had plenty of room and scooted around. He followed me all the way to the next town, over 10 miles) where I work and did not stop the tail gating in town till I pulled into the police station.
Creepy!

I hate road rage. I always carry a weapon with me, but had a similar scenario happen once while my son was in the backseat. The guy successfully boxed me in and threw a rock (small) at my window. I was prepared to jump the curb and get away but hadn't gotten to that point yet. The guy just wanted me to roll down my window so he could yell at me. All I could do was show him my hands and try to diffuse the situation until I could get me and my son away.

Such a helpless scenario when you have kids in the car. This is a perfect example of why we moved out of the city to the country. I still get anxious when we have to take the kids into the city.

We were in road rage incident with a semi of all things. He was trying desperately to run us off the road. My husband tried all sorts of things to just let him go, but if we sped up he caught up with us - going well over 70 on a 2-lane country highway.... if we slowed down, he slowed down. We called 911 and the cop pulled him over. We pulled in behind the cop. He is asked to get out of the truck and my husband joins the group and the trucker starts saying we were trying to run him off the road and shining our brights at him. The officer says to him "what if I told you the driver of the other car is an off-duty police officer". His response "I think we should just shake hands and go on our way". Fortunately, that did not work and he got a ticket for reckless driving, which was plead down to careless driving.

Both my husband and I had to write out a witness statement. We are in the car and he is calmly writing his like he has written thousands of reports in his career. I am next to him shaking so bad, it is almost hard to write. He asks why I'm shaking and I basically said "listen, I'm a civilian... I am not used to these things". He still laughs about that to this day.

Road Rage incident many years ago.

Driving with a group of friends in a "mobbed up area of town" when a car starts tail gating me. I sped up and he keeps on following me. I try to loose him in the side streets ( fairly good at this at the time as I would do this to the police for fun). Well as I do not know the area well I pull into a dead end. Guy gets out of his car and points what looks like a gun at us. So what to do. I hit the gas leaving a line of rubber on the road and point the car at the bad guy. Thinking I am crazier than him he jumps into his car and pulls away.

People are idiots nowadays. Everyone thinks they are untouchable. The scarier part is that, imho, many folks who do carry a weapon think they can pull it out in a road rage incident because they are mad at someone. The weapon is an instrument of LAST resort after you have exhausted all other options.

I've watched people lose their minds in the merging McDonalds drive-thru lanes.

Years ago riding in the car with a female friend (I'm also female). She gets on the highway and accidentally (yes - it really was an accident) cuts someone off. She apologetically waves at them but that wasn't enough and he starts tailgating us. We're getting close to our exit and I told her not to use her signal. She got off of the Interstate at the last second and he didn't have time to follow us - and he was MAD. We both felt very relieved.

Many years ago I went to see The Goodbye Girl on Broadway with Martin Short. After the play, which was very good considering how I adore the movie with Richard Dreyfus, we hopped into a cab to bring us to Penn Station. For those of you who have never been to The City, cab drivers are aggressive as well as crazy. A large pick up truck high up cuts the cab off. The cab driver had a very bad speech impediment, plus spoke with a Chinese accent. He was livid! He starts chasing the truck, screaming profanities that exchanged f's with p's. The truck had a passenger who proceeds to throw her large soda into the cab with no lid. We thought he was bringing out a gun, so we booked out of there so fast. We could not stop laughing the rest of the run to the train. And that was before "road rage" was a thing! So, yeah, puck you!

I used to let people get under my skin while driving but now with a wife and kids I have thankfully changed some.
I had a road rager follow me through 4 cities and 30 minutes. This was before cell phones and I was to young and dumb to know where the police department was.

I got cut off in a turn lane by a little old man in a beater truck. He stopped, got out, and yelled at me for nearly hitting him, when the whole thing was his fault!
