My Thursday road rage experience....
Figured that's the last time I'll see the truck. About three lights later while under way something catches me eye. I'm in left lane and going the speed limit heading up towards a red light. What's that bothering me in my right eye? I look over and this dude has his window down yelling at me with BOTH hands out of the window with a... Shoe-shoe, speed up motion.
I'm sure I made a face because I was just shocked. He **** in right behind me as I eased into a turn lane.
Turn lane is a split in median. He's bummer to bumper. I'm angled to hit 2 lanes of S bound traffic at about a 45.
He almost kisses my bumper, then snatches it out back in N bound, then immediately cuts hard left and lays his truck perpendicular to flow
I figure some more screaming will commence and we're done.
He throws it in park. Hops out. Yelling and gesturing.
I'm a little freaked. I hit gas a touch to get away from his truck that's got me almost blocked in.
At this point he comes to my door and snatches on handle as I'm moving truck slowly into what could me oncoming traffic.
Could not see what's coming from N because of his truck.
Nobody was coming thankfully,. I did huge S to N into N lanes Uturn, got around his truck in the median space, cut some people off. Hauled *** N. Managed to put distance between us. Saw red light coming, so elected to U turn S.
Did that. He was in left lane and I was solo heading S. He sees me coming and **** into the third involved median space.
He leaves truck and gets in middle of road I'm front of me
It happened so fast. I really thought the dude was going to pull a gun when he came to my truck and couldn't unlock the door.
Felt a lot like ****ing assault.
Dude tried getting in my truck. My first thought was, he's gonna shoot me. Second thought.... He's gonna bust a window. Third thought, if he does, I'm in seat belt and I'll grab some part of him and floor it.
I'm not sure what law is, but it anything like that ever happens again and he's in front of me in foot... He's getting mowed down with bumper.
Not sure how much good a gun would have done for me. Happened all so fast. Plus, he was loose and in much better position to pull one and respond.
Scared me. I'm not scared often, but that shirt freaked me out.
Dude was crazy. And he had me pinned.
I'll be more aware going forward, but **** that guy.
I wanted to call police so bad during car chase, but I had no time. I had Chevy hooked up like a Porsche between b traffic.
Hell with this world sometimes. I went from good assessment flee, then a little panic set in, and now I'm pissed.
It may or may not go down the same way if the situation occurs again.
