Of course he's a little upset. The driver is driving on the wrong side of the road, making illegal U-Turns and otherwise driving like a douche. He even rear ended the guy (1:05). I think the guy was merely pointing out that he had a crack in the windshield when he allegedly hit it.

Wow. Road rage guy is obviously batshiat insane.
 
2013-01-14 03:24:44 PM
He wanted his two dollars.
 
2013-01-14 03:25:26 PM
I cannot freakin' believe that the emergency operator actually suggested he go back after the road rager had jumped on the hood of his car and smashed the windshield. I honestly don't think she understood how batsh*t insane the guy was acting.

Was in Australia a few months ago, and I'm thankful I picked up on some of their slang.  The Black Nissan pickup is mentioned several times as a ute, Aussie slang for a utility pickup truck that usually looks like this:

Uh, pretty well. Note how no one was shot and killed?

If the guy in the pickup truck had had a gun, he'd have just shot the person filming and that would have been that.

I'm guessing that if either one of these guys had had a gun, someone would be dead.  As it is, one is turning himself in and another has a scary story.  So I'm going with "Pretty good, thanks for asking."

I'd guess this guy noticed the angry idiot tailgating him and locked up the brakes on him when this all started, based on what he said to the 000 operator, further enraging mister methhead and his girlfriend.

If somebody is tailgating you bad enough that you feel the need to do something about it, call the police, get over, let him pass, and get his plates. Let the officers do their job. Confronting morans like that will only make matters worse, as shown in this video.

It's why I never understood the mentality of woman drivers on I-75 here in Michigan, to jerk into the fast lane when they see somebody speeding... I witnessed this sort of thing many times (not just myself, not that I would ever speed, heh)... they clearly thought they were doing something worthwhile, but all it takes is one road rager and that driver would find their life get very exciting (in a bad way) very quick.

Whenever I see somebody speeding up behind me, I'm more than happy to let them on their way - they'll trigger the speed traps ahead so I don't get a ticket for 10mph over by a cop looking to fill his quota.

Let me get this right. You're saying when someone is speeding in the fast lane, people will intentionally jerk over into the fast lane in order to black their path and force them to slow down? Is this behavior that is specific for that area? I have never witnessed anything like this living in NC.

That police operator is a farking moron. I don't know whether or not the video just doesn't show it but not once did the operator ask where are you. Her only instructions were get to a police station...and then it was basically the same question over and over. If I'm a police operator and someone is yelling that someone is trying to drive them off the road I'm not going to try and ask why. I am going to ask where are you and police are on the way and try to keep him calm by not asking retarded questions.

There is nothing worse than being in a stressful situation and have some moron asking stupid questions.

What's worse is that she told him to go back when the guy rolled off his roof. Yes, please go back and see if your attacker is ok, nothing could go wrong in that scenario.

Do they make windshields out of paper-thin plastic in Australia?  That guy hit it once and it collapsed.  And it will probably cost a mere $2000 to replace it.

Yes, for whatever reason, I saw this behavior a LOT on the commute between Flint and Detroit on I-75, usually by younger women (20s). It is baffling, as I've been all over the US (even overseas), and driving for 30 years now. I-75 is 3 lanes there, and yet women would pull into the far left lane to block speeders.

Well. the vehicle had already been struck several times, so if there was any bending of the frame of the windshield already, that would put extra stress on it. Then it wasn't like he just walked up and punched it - he ran and took a flying leap into it with his full weight.

Based on the latest reports saying other victims of his have come forward it sounds like its a good thing for everyone that he made the mistake of picking a target with a dash cam.

Nothing reported indicates that the guy was tailgating and the victim slammed the brakes on him. The other guy just rear ended him; whether this was on the road and the rager was just trying to push his way through, or if it was at a legal stop and he didn't give himself enough space to stop as well isn't clear. Since there are reports of other victims coming forward, it almost sounds like this is something the guy did for sport.

When I was living in Los Angeles some dude in a truck cut me off so I honked my horn. He apparently didn't like that so he started shadowing my every move while in front of me and yelling out his window. This was on the freeway between offramps so there weren't many places for me to go. I motioned him to pull over, he pulls over and I speed past him. Unfortunately I ran into some traffic and couldn't keep ahead of him for very long. He pulls up next to me and say's "i'm going to run you off the farkin road", and then rams his truck into the side of my car. I brake hard and he moves ahead of me and then starts trying to match my every move. An offramp was coming up so I waited until the last possible second before turning off, finally losing the guy.

Called the cops and told them everything that happened. Took them 3 weeks before they finally got hold of the guy. Said because he lived in a different town that it took them a while. Of course the guy had no damage to his truck 3 weeks after the incident. Then the cops suggested that it was simply road rage, that there was no incident and that I called the cops on him because I was angry that he cut me off. They actually said I made the whole thing up. I told them that I had damage to my car that proved he hit me, including a huge tire mark. They told me they would send an officer out to look at my car. They never showed up. Called them several more times and each time they told me an officer would come out to look at my car. Farkers never showed.

Good freaking god that is horrifying. And not just the guy, the fact that he's on the phone with the police and NO ONE SHOWS THE fark UP. The difference between this and an American call is that eventually they would've finally hit a police barricade and the drive would likely have been shot.

That operator was an idiot. I think she actually chastised him at some point for swearing because he went "I'm sorry! I'm sorry!"
