Road Rage...........
« on: February 16, 2012, 10:14:32 AM »
There was a story in our local news that blew me away...........

A man cut off a driver on the street and apparently felt bad so he pulled over and the driver he cut off pulled over to the side of the road behind him.

The man gets out of his car to apologize for his actions on the road and seems the other driver wasn't too forgiving. He got out of his car and shot the apologetic man right in the stomach.

We all get aggravated from time to time while driving but this is extreme road rage.

Have you ever gotten so mad that you have regretted your actions while driving?

Yeah, I'd say that was extreme in the least. I have heard of people shooting another over a parking spot also...Just some people who carry should first have a "Temper Check" before purchase.

That guy seems to me more like totall madman than like aggravated person. My opininon is that there is nothing that 2 normal civilized man cant solve verbally.

Truth to be told, i cant even imagine the situation in which i would be agitated enough to even waste words, but it seems we are all different persons after all.

I can't say that I've ever regretted my actions on the road. I was never the aggressor but I've had a few problems while driving. I just talk to myself about how irritating someone else's driving is and move on. That's beyond anything I could imagine. It was a nice thought but a little odd that the man pulled over to apologize. Is it possible that the shooter thought he was going to be attacked? No excuse to shoot him without knowing but I wonder if he got spooked.

I have muttered the occasional expletive when someone has done something really stupid in front of me. I have also lifted my hand (all fingers extended, not just the middle one usually) and shrugged my shoulders. But, to get angry enough to confront another driver, never.

Having driven a big truck for somewhere around a million miles, I have seen some stupid stuff people do in their cars when suffering road rage... and being a big truck on the highway seems to make many drivers mad. I have been told I am number 1 (middle finger extended) a lot of times just for being on the road.

This is a very extreme situation. I don't have much problems in traffic though I was taught to drive a bit more aggressive. If someone apologize for cutting me off I would take her/him to the nearest bar and have a drink.
I'm a lot like a cat. I'm cuddly and manipulative and if you go on a vacation without me, I will pee in your bed.

I've had my experiences but never too extreme,never gotten mad.. in all honesty i'd be too scared to deal with someone thats displayed road rage, i say a few words to myself and continue on, praying that person just stays away..if someone cut me off i shrug it because acting stupidly over it wouldn't be worth it, considering myself lucky no one was hurt.. but there is some crazy drivers out there,some just don't give a darn... acting like they are invincable or something..

I always try to keep calm when I'm behind the wheel and most times I succeed. I'd never shoot or hit somebody over a traffic argument, that's way beyond any limit of reasonable behaviour.

I just pootle along at the speed limit which angers a lot of drivers.  I've never been involved in a road rage incident but you see plenty on the roads over here.

The one you have highlighted Lips is awful.  It just never ceases to amaze me that drivers get so angry behind the wheel that it leads to being shot in the stomach.

This incident happened right on the outskirts of Chicago and i think the bigger cities are the absolute worst for road rage. There use to be a time when there was such a thing called "rush hour" when traffic was at it's heaviest but nowadays the roads are packed 24/7.

What happened to the days when families had one car? Today every member in the family has a car and every kid has their own by the time they are 16. The bumper to bumper traffic is insane.

That is still no excuse to go off on people like this. I just pretend i have a gun and point my finger as the trigger at the car's tires in front of me and bang bang blow them out in an imaginary way! Always makes me feel better  :)

People can be crazy out there! I always try to keep my cool,which isn't always easy ;)
I know when I drove a school bus,people did whatever they could to get in front of me including running me off the road in a snowstorm.I mean...really.I know no one wants to be behind a bus but I had special needs children on at that time and it didn't matter :-pp

I think they need to chill and take time out to smell the roses !! ;)
