    That has alot to do with it... Impatient people! I hate the people on the road that are in a hurry and dont care about anyone else on the road. They just cut everyone off and try to get where theyre going as fast as possible. F***in chill out people!!
    I love it when those people try so hard to get in front of you and in there frustration and impatience they get stuck behind someone, then you eventually end up passing them. And they have that what the F**** look on there face.. haha.. soo great!

    For serious. Talked to my mom yesterday and she said she witnessed a guy get out of his beater truck at a stop light, pull a bat from behind the seat and proceed to bash in the rear quarter panel and brake light of the kid in front of him who was driving a later model car. It was a rougher neighbrhood AND THE GUY HAD BEEN DRINKING. Brown-bagging it in plain sight. Apparently the kid stopped at a yield sign for oncoming traffic and the truck rear ended him, expecting him to roll through. Didn't do shit to the guy's truck except put him in rage mode. Luckily police were called, and there were plenty of witnesses, so the kid was protected. I tell ya, some people man...

    Watch your backs guys, drive defensively.

    I'm so out of the loop I didn't think 15 year olds could drive.

    I can't remember the last time I had road rage. I drive the speed limit, in the right line looking forward, leaving plenty of room in front of me...always. Last week on a 1,200 plus mile drive on the last 600 miles I got right at 22 mpg.

    The guy was pulling out of the shopping centre and came close to crashing into me.

    I'm usually calm and generous, it's just that dumb and inconsiderate drivers wear out my patience really fast.

    Driving in Boston will give you the same, if not worse experience.

    Every time I get into a car, I assume someone is going to be stupid near me. That way, it isn't a surprise and I just brush it off.

    try living in Orlando where no one knows where the fuck they are going, dont use turn signals, and decide at the last second they want to be in the far right lane when they are in the fast lane and fuck you and everyone else around you they are getting over. People drive like shit down here. I used to try to avoid the toll roads but now, I pay a little extra just to get to wherever I need to be in as little time as possible before my head explodes.

    edit: and all of the old people that live here.... they are horrible too. either driving 10-15 mph under the speed limit or just flat out cant see what is in front of them.

    In South Carolina, if you have held your beginner's permit for 180 days then you can get your conditional license...which means you can get it at 15.5

    I'll repeat myself

    Poor defensive driving/decision making/attitude. Learn to be more patient and calm yourself down. Expect others to make mistakes and anticipate them. Continue to your destination safely. Road rage never solves anyones driving behavior and so very often leads to far worse situations. If you had paid attention in your drivers ed class (which you're required to have to get your conditional before the age of 16) then they shouldve gone over how to deal with road rage.

    This is coming from someone who is not only a law enforcement officer in South Carolina, but I've also been teaching teenagers how to drive for the past 5 years and am certified by the DMV to do so.

    Cab drivers are the worst.

    Of the 8 or 10 times that I've honestly been in fear for my life on my motorcycle, cab drivers were responsible for 80% of those situations.

    I've left many a boot-print in cab front doors and fenders.

    And I guess when you guys that can actually drive don't want to see them anymore, you send them all up to us. Thanks, but would you consider taking them back... Please?

    I live in a town of 920 with no 4-lane. Don't see any road road here on the backroads.

    plain and simple I need to get to point A and back home safely got too much other stuff to worry about. whomever that a-hole is he'll get the same treatment from someone else. I aint got time for road rage. the other day some dude was driving like 65 on far left lane (99 south bound modesto) he didn't merge over so I pass him up about 3-4 car length, I merge in he then flies pass me and honk and throw the flying bird I just smile and continue driving. In my mind im like mother f'er you wanna eat the median or something. road rage can turn bad especially on the highway there are too many drivers that we can and will endanger.
