Lets start a defense fund for this guy.
 
2007-02-22 10:29:24 AM
Damn near every time I see someone do something stupid while driving, it's a cell phone user. It used to be soccer moms in over-sized vehicles.. now it's everyone in every vehicle.

I have given serious thought on how to rig up a BB gun or some sort of projectile device to the inside grill of my truck so I can exact revenge.

I ride a motorcycle. Cell users are right up there with drunks when it comes to being dangerous and unpredictable.

Where do I send my defense contribution?

Sorry, not Buddhist driving, so Anti-hero.

fark all of you. I use a cell phone while driving and i'm a perfectly safe driver. Go ahead, ram me. I'll eat your liver for lunch.

Dr.Knockboots: Damn near every time I see someone do something stupid while driving, it's a cell phone user.
well, here you have someone doing something very stupid, but not using a cell phone.
 
2007-02-22 10:42:37 AM
What a farking butthole. Is he upset that talking on a phone may cause an accident? Why would causing an accident be a good solution to this problem?

Enjoy teh buttsecks.

This guy is no Hero. I am not defending stupidity when using a cell phone, but read the article. The cell phone user did not provoke or seem to cut this guy off, etc. The agressor had a bad temper. End of story.

And before you defend the agreesor, remember that the article said he almost forced the cell phone user into other cars. Yes, hero indeed. I know I would have felt he was a hero if I got hit because he acted like an arse.

Americans...unnecessary violence = OK
Everything else not OK
 
2007-02-22 10:43:08 AM
We're defending the guy who is dangerous enough to ram other cars off the road?
Hopefully he loses his license for it. What a farking douchebag. Regardless of how you feel about cell phones, playing bumper cars with people is not a good way to protest it.
 
2007-02-22 10:43:41 AM
Nothing more funny then sitting at a four-way and three other people are on their phones.

Hmmm every time I've been in accident, it's been caused by a person who is not on their cell phone... Yet it looks like almost every second person on the road is on a cell phone... weird...
 
2007-02-22 10:44:28 AM
Beautiful headline, submitter.
 
2007-02-22 10:44:32 AM
Everyone who has commented so far is an asscap. Yes, people should not talk or text on the highway, that does not mean you should ram them through a median in hopes that they will get hit by oncoming traffic. If anyone is the greater risk it is the jack leg that rammed the talker.
 
2007-02-22 10:44:40 AM
I use headset, but pull over as soon as possible. It is too dangerous and distracting. They should shoot these idiots with the dvd players visible to the driver though. That would be cheaper than the carnage they will cause.
 
2007-02-22 10:44:44 AM
Dr. Knockboots-

Years ago I had the idea to mount paintball guns on my front fenders just for this purpose. Envision an array of guns, each loaded with different color paintballs - color coded by offense. Blue for "loafing in the passing lane", yellow for "did not use turn signal", and red for "talking on cell phone".

2007-02-22 10:48:12 AM
people who use cell phones in cars: it's been proven time and time again that you're not able to respond as quickly, so stop telling us that you can. you're a human just like everyone else.

that being said, there are no heros in this story.

i think an IRONIC tag would've been more appropriate: this guy was mad that the phone talker was endangering people, so he shoves him into oncoming traffic, basically risking more people's lives...because he was angry. this man should go to prison.

Thing that annoys me the most is when I am crossing at a green light, and I get honked by some ass because the little man changed to a hand. These are the same fat asses who drive 10 yards to their mailbox and have no farking clue how much longer it is to walk somewhere rather than driving. If someone is slowly entering an intersection as the light turns yellow, yeah I can see getting a little upset. But if someone is crossing on a stale green, then STFU and let the guy cross. Hell, once I was crossing at a stop sign, and some guy honked me and gave me a look as I was crossing in front of his car.

/usually give asshats like this the finger

You ever get into an accident flashing those road rage cards?

simple formula for you:
not paying attention + Driving = All that is evil

I don't advocate violence... but I don't think any jury would convict this guy.

NotSubby:

I have a story for you.

Last summer I was driving my motorcycle and stopped to make a right turn.

I had to wave a car out before I could make my turn, and after the person went, I began making my turn.

This dumbass soccer mom passed me on my RIGHT as I was half way through making a turn. She was driving a huge SUV, on her damn cell phone, and apparently didn't notice. I looked to my right just in time to see her side view mirror about scrape my face off.

I lost it, I gunned it, hauled ass after her. She must've realized she was being followed because her and we were going down these suburb streets at about 65. When she got to her house she ran inside, still on the cell phone as I yelled, "IM GOING TO KILL YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN WHILE YOU SLEEP."

Of course, it was an empty threat, however, I hope she thinks of me every time she sees a motorcycle.

I'm just here to throw in my support for the "Not Hero" crowd. Sounds to me like this dude's way more intentionally dangerous than any cell phone user.
 
2007-02-22 10:49:17 AM
fark all of you. I use a cell phone while driving and i'm a perfectly safe driver. Go ahead, ram me. I'll eat your liver for lunch.


I love it when one person thinks they make up a demographic.

TheMorgothPit: ...that does not mean you should ram them through a median in hopes that they will get hit by oncoming traffic

Despite everything that's obviously wrong with the dangers and creation of an accident that isn't really an accident, I can't help but inherently disagree with that statement.

It's that little fuzzy feeling in the bottom of my stomach that has been undefined and labeled as "love" for many millennia that makes me say, with much satisfaction, "Suck it cell-phone driver."

2007-02-22 10:51:07 AM
When someone tries to road rage on me, I shake my cell phone at them as if I am saying "CAN'T YOU SEE I'M TRYING TO HAVE A CONVERSATION?!?!?"
 
2007-02-22 10:51:43 AM
Well, I can't agree that vehicular assault qualifies someone for the "hero" tag, but I certainly understand the sentiment about cell phone usage.

We don't currently have a way of enforcing laws against cell phone-induced driving impairment, but I'd like to see something in that direction. Again and again, it's been made clear that use of a cell phone is a very special case of distraction, even exceeding the distraction caused by having a conversation with someone sitting in your car. Speaking on a cell phone while driving should carry the same penalties as driving while intoxicated.
 
2007-02-22 10:51:50 AM
The woman who throws ice at the guy who cut her off gets the dumbass tag, but this crazy nut gets the hero tag. Driving wreckless is illegal, not talking on a cell phone, not everywhere anyhow. By the description, this guy deserves the dumbass tag, seems like he was having a bad day....

How does this logic apply to McDonald's cup throwing ho-bags?

Meh. It's why everyone should have guns. If more people got shot by psychos for doing stupid shiat, there's be less people doing stupid shiat.

I love this, yesterday i watched a woman try to parallel park while on her cell phone.. then get out of car, grab kid from back seat ect ect all on the phone... i was close enough to hear part of the 10 minute convo while all this was going on... it was like high school girls yakking...

this pillar of society then went into a store (still on phone), I watched her walk around gesturing as to what she wanted, she paid, and left then whole thing again...

yes Farkers you guessed it...She never got off of her phone!

people like this should be barred from driving and shopping

/ok I am done venting

Driving while on your cell phone? That's a paddlin'
Ramming another truck? That's a paddlin'
Driving on the wrong side of the road? That's a paddlin'

I almost rammed some stupid broad in a Envoy this morning as she cut me off without a signal or a glance in the mirror. My heightened force sensitive reflexes gave me the reaction time required to engage my anti-locking, signal with my horn and then jester with the signaling tool located in the middle of my hand.

If I had a gun in my car...

There was a lady holding up traffic at a stoplight yesterday because she hadn't finished typing her email.
