Warlordtrooper: Prey4reign: Mark Ratner: Stubby be trolling. The dad was the one was driving too slow in the fast lane. His daughter was a passenger.

I agree that fast lane idiots arbitrarily establishing what the speed limit ought to be is irritating to the max.  However, continuously ramming the slow driver on the highway and in a shopping center is just a bit over the top and fully worthy of a lifetime ban behind the wheels.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.  Driving the speed limit is not arbitrarily establishing what the limit is,  It's established by law.  You should have no reason to complain because, and I know this is a hard concept for some people to understand but.... YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE GOING OVER THE SPEED LIMIT.


Also I'd like to say this is BS: Gagon faces two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault and one charge of careless driving for the Saturday night attack.

This is what is wrong with the American justice system.  He should be facing 1 count of road rage.  There is no reason to include 5 charges for one act.  Especially when the first 4 charges are for the exact same crime:  Assault.  That should be 1 charge of assault and perhaps one charge of careless driving.


Fortunately many states disagree with you and have enacted laws to punish dangerous drivers (like you) who drive too slowly in the left lane. You're best just to move on over and leave the law enforcement to the cops.

...What the terrified driver and his daughter discovered only later, was that a knife wielding maniac was creeping up from the back seat to murder them both! It was only the quick thinking and brave actions of the suspect that kept the killer in check and forced the victims to flee their car before he could strike.

Actually, the article doesn't mention the fast lane angle, I made up that part. It doesn't say what caused the road rage, but anyone who inflicts harm on a bad driver, other than a honk and a one-fingered salute, has serious anger issues. The guy is crazy. Meth might be involved.

I see this exact same argument constantly here, and you have NO MERIT.  Like someone pointed out, you're supposed to leave the law enforcement to police.  If you try to force people to drive slowly because you can't handle it (this is what I assume), eventually you're going to do it to a crazy and then have your  own story on the 10 o clock news.

I don't mind at all when I'm in the left lane going 5 over and someone comes up on me quickly.  I happily get over as soon as I can, as the dickbag will be attracting any police attention, and I know I won't be hassled.  I actually had this happen on the interstate, I got over for some guy going 90-100 MPH, and no more than 45 seconds later a state trooper nailed him.  It's always been my fantasy to have that happen, and it finally did!

Stay ALERT on the road people, I keep tabs on the rear view mirror constantly and do my very best to not slow anyone down or inconvenience anyone else.  It's called being a good human being.

JesusJuice: CSB while I finish having my shiat:

Today I was driving in the right lane when I came up on an intersection. Someone in the left lane started signalling right as I came up because there was a car ahead turning left, preventing them from proceeding. Apparently they were very upset that I didn't slam on my breaks to let them get ahead of me, so they started honking at me as I passed. So I flipped them off as I slowed down enough that the light changed by the time I got there, then ran the red, leaving them stuck at the intersection for another cycle.


So basically you gave someone the finger and ran away? If you're a woman that's a cool story, not so much if you're a guy.

If you drive slow in the fast lane you deserve to be ploughed over into the ditch. No exceptions. Bonus points if you are that idiot who insist on driving at the same speed as the slow lane.

Kids these day. Stick with the tried-and-true.
[users.rcn.com image 640x462]

Reminds me of my old Army days stationed at Ft. Bliss, 1971.  The whole battalion was up in the McGregor Range for our FTX.  We were standing around shooting the breeze, probably after dinner, when a duece and half rolls up.  Out pops one of the enlisted guys and Lt. Krantz.  Krantz is complaining that they went to pick up the blank ammo for our M16's (there were going to be "aggressors", so we were going to play "guns") and they had to wait for an hour before they received the ammo.  I was wondering why they had to take a duece and half, and not just a 5/4.  Just how much ammo did they pick up?  I looked in the back of the duece and could see a bunch ammo canisters.  On two of the canisters I could read "5.56mm, Rifle Ammunition, Ball", or however it was phrased.  I walked back to where Lt. Krantz was still complaining about the delay, and said, "Er...sir, you picked up regular ammo, not blanks."  Krantz looks at me like I'm crazy, and says, "No, they gave us blanks."  I said, "Well, look for yourself, sir, it says "ball ammunition" on the canisters."  Krantz looks into the back of the truck, runs to the cab and gets the paperwork out and realized that he had signed off for the ball ammo instead of blanks. It meant a trip back to Bliss and then a return trip.  They weren't back until around midnight. I realized that they could have been given warheads to Nikes and wouldn't have noticed the difference. I thought we should have kept the real ammo. We would have surprised those aggressors.  We would have surprised them, real good.


What kind of moron lets a lieutenant go anywhere without adult supervision?

You're still a partial douchebag.  I won't say you're a total douchebag because you do yield to faster traffic, but you're still admitting to driving in the passing lane.    If you're not passing someone, move right.

knight_on_the_rail: Which laws punish people for driving the speed limit again?


The spirit of the law is now shifting to "first, do not impede the free-flow of traffic". Because doing so introduces risk where there was none, the left lane should be used primarily for passing and does not constitute your own private little kingdom of being a self-righteous prick?

Stop endangering lives and you may live longer. News at 11.

He assaulted two people. Each was a victim. Assault with a deadly weapon is a separate charge. He did that to each of them. He did it while (once) driving unsafely. Seems perfectly reasonable, especially since there is no such crime as "road rage" and he did this showing callous disregard for human life and public safety.

Methinks you are trying to excuse your own tendencies here.

The guy's a psycho, and of course his behavior is not acceptable, but there's no way the dad was just innocently driving along doing nothing when out of nowhere this driver started ramming his car. He probably did something passive-aggressive to get in the guy's way, then when the guy honked at him, flipped him off or something along those lines.

Again, psycho's behavior is totally wrong and out of line. But if you avoid being a passive-aggressive jackass, you're much less likely to piss off the pscyhos.

He assaulted two people. Two counts.
If you murder two people, you don't expect to be tried on just one count of murder, do you?
