    bullchit !

    the guys with the "flo grown" stickers are the worst - the ****' who put the 4 way flashers on,in the rain are equally as bad,and the genius' that drive the speed limit in the left lane are right up there too...

    NEVER have I seen worst drivers,since I moved to florida...

    must be all the meth heads and heroin addicts ?

    no wonder there's so much road rage....
    can we please stop using the word ISSUE ? it's a PROBLEM
    :wink

    Lots of those kids with the stickers are either posers or 1st generation.

    Which just means their yankee parents taught them to drive like a yankee.:wink

    There's seriously something wrong with the extreme road rage guys. Like whatever checks and balances a normal brain has to control impulses...they don't have! I agree that yelling back at them or similar behaviors just signals to them that the fight is on. Coming up to your door and grabbing the handle is several notches higher of crazy for sure. I haven't had that happen but I'd like to think I could remain calm enough to get their license plate number and drive way safely, but appreciate it's a lot easier said than done.

    Sure wish I had his number. Hard to get while burning rubber, literally, getting the hell out of Dodge.

    Haha.

    I'm pretty sure there's a set percentage of morons on this planet, but you did play a good card there.

    You handled it right, I'd hate to have to kill someone just for losing their temper. I haven't never got that mad, but I have got mad a few times.

    I had what we called 'Winter Beater's' up in Minnesota for the winter months as you were always subject to severe winter conditions. Some **** was pissed at cutting him off or something, he continued to ride my bumper, I did a brake-check and he rammed my rear-end HARD! It was a 77' Chevy Nova, heavy car. Lot's of damage to his vehicle, just a little damage to the Nova. The guy ended up shaking my hand as I did not want to call for law enforcement for the incident.

    I probably paid $250 for the car back then.
