I can not speak about the entire U.S. But I will say in my county the police take road rage very very seriously. You do anything that can seem violent towards another individual, the cops are right there in a heart beat with at least 3 other cars.
In my county, you have 8 county police stations. Then you have 4 state police stations including the headquarters. Then you have Arlington city police, Fairfax City, Veinna, Springfield, Tysons, and Falls Chuch, Alexandria, also Herdon all with their respective police departments. Then you also have metro police( who cover dc, md, va). Also you have numerous federal agencies as well. Plus the sheriffs department. All who are willing to arrest anyone who acts stupid. I live in a commonwealth, Where the arresting authority has the ultimate say if you go to jail or not. It is kinda like this, If I punch you in the face, and you Punch me in the face, The police come to the scene, and neither one of us want to press charges on each other, the police can, and will, press charges on behalf of the jurisdiction "the people". So, you are pretty safe here. No worries

I love the area I live in. Plus everyone and their grandmom has firearms to defend themselves with. Everyone knows this. Keeps people civil IMO.

The truck in your avatar looks like one I saw going down the 15 today just north of Elisnore. Towing a trailer with a big toolbox?

But when not working (not wearing my work uniform). I do the same but just have a friend with me

So if approached this is in my lap pointed at the door,I can fix the hole in it but maybe not the one in me. You never know what any one is capable of so no matter what be very weary of anyone approaching you,your family, or your property.
This..

Not the same, but I live on the end of my street and it happens that people who took a wrong turn will turn around in my driveway instead of doing a 3 point turn. Especially annoying at night since the headlights shine right through my kitchen.

The other day someone pulled in..and just sat there. 15 seconds of that was enough for me..for all I know he's doing a drug deal or something. I go walking outside and said "can I help you?" He just stared at me like "who the hell are you?" He was rewarded with a rather large amount of 4 letter words..somewhere in there was "my driveway is not a turnaround or a parking lot, get your rear end out of here NOW!!!!!!"

I'm a big guy (6'7" 260lbs), but I've never been in a fight and i'm usually one to avoid confrontation. With that being said, i've had my fair share of road rage, that's why I keep a big maglight within reach.

The worst kind of road rage is when a car/truck decides to take out anger on a motorcycle. You're in a 3000lb+ metal box i'm on a 400lb engine with wheels, enough said.

I was driving down to my mom and dad's house near the carolina coast. I saw a young guy in a BMW pull right out in front of the little white Honda in front of me. The Honda slammed on it's brakes and honked the horn, I had to brake quickly to a stop as well because the BMW stopped, and the kid got out and ran back to the Honda, throwing a punch through the open window. The kid tried to pull back for another punch...but it seemed that he couldn't get his arm free for some reason...he then got yanked forward so hard that he slammed into the side of the Honda...The door of the honda was opened by the driver, and what happened next made me laugh.

I watched the kid who caused the whole incident get pulled hard into the door as the door was being pushed open hard, then he was pushed back while the door closed, then pulled into the opening door again, and again, and again, and again in rapid-fire succession like a rag doll. I swear that kid was hit with that door at least a dozen times before his arm was released and he slumped to the pavement. The Honda's door then came open fully and out stepped a true gorilla of a young man in a USMC uniform. I stepped out as well and approached him as he was surveying the damage to his blood-spattered door. I told him I saw the whole thing and would be happy to be a witness for him. Should I call the police? He said "No Sir. Problem solved." He asked if I needed to call the police...I replied "About what?" I got back into my car and drove away, as did the Marine.

I think of that marine every time I think about getting pissed at another driver.

People drive like idiots all the time, but that's no reason to let it get under your skin. I tell my steering wheel what an a-hole the guy is and let it go.
I've had people flip me off and yell at me from vehicle from time to time. Whatever I say. Maybe i was in the wrong. Maybe not. 'No harm no fowl' i say. But if someone ever felt the need to exit their vehicle and approach my door in an agressive or agitated manner, the little fight or flight alarm in my head starts going nuts and they're going to become aquainted with the barrel of my sidearm.

Exiting your vehicle to yell (or worse) at someone is an inherently hostile action. If you are on the recieving end you need to either leave or respond in kind with enough force to diffuse the situation, otherwise someone is going to get hurt.
