Default I let Road Rage get the best of me.

I was coming back to the campus from 7-11 around midnight last night. I am on a 2 lane road in a passing zone. This Grand Am behind me was tailgaiting like no other, and flashing his brights at me. There is also a van in front of me going the speed limit. Well, the GA decides to pass both of us. He gets really close to me as he goes in the oncoming lane. I get really pissed off. I follow him through the pass in the oncoming lane. I really was stupid to do this, because I saw a car in the distance headed our way. I make it in front of the van in time, but I'm pretty sure I scared that on-coming driver pretty good.

I was still pissed, and I got up on the GA, and flashed him back.

I scared the passengers in my car for a stupid reason. I felt bad afterward.

I gotta let road rage stop controlling me.

...I had to vent this.

Don't worry bud, I've done it too.

Ironically, it was some punk *** in his baby blue 95 Aurora, he was really pissing me off on the hwy. Back in the ol 89....I had to teach Mr. Punk *** a lesson. Never had to cross into on-coming traffic, but I probably had some motorists goin WTF???

Good thing there was no cops

I used to be a serious rager and you get alot worse before you get better. Really think how far you will go while raging? Believe me not as far as you think while your sane. If you are raging you will go way to far.

the same thing happened to me yesterday, kind-of.

I was going up a long hill 4 lane road that'* speed limit is 55mph. but i usually like to cruise around 60-65mph. I get on it to pass a row of cars and all the sudden the Hyundai Elantra decided to do the same thing! I was inches from hitting him! I laid on the horn and gave him the finger! I tailgated him then went to get over in the right lane to get around him because he was trying to **** me off even more by slowing down. I gave her some gas and the *** hole almost ran into me again when he tried to change into the right lane, the one I was in! This time I didn't let him over, I laid on the horn, once again, and floored it! He stayed in his lane while I got around him while waying my finger out the sunroof! I didn't see him after that.

Ok, so maybe my story wasn't the same but, it was road rage orieted. I need to calm down sometimes and think before I act. I'm sure I wouldn't of acted the same if I had other people in the car with me.

Default lol

I while back I was on the highway going to visit my parents so I rented a tahoe (02) just cuz somtimes its fun to rent stuff
I was going 145km down highway 2 and a 2000ish GTP 2door started to play tag with me... hammerin the brakes and honking.. ' Then he stuck his finger out the sunroof then im wtf? So I pull over and the tahoes roof rack was only being held on by a few bolts... sometimes its best not to flip out... if I just layed it to 160 and said cyz to the gtp my roof rack probably woulda went through his windsheild.

i'm gonna bet that the roof rack would have landed on the ground and the GTP would have said bu bye to you...
