Driving along in Paradise, MD with my dad, an asshole spun out his sports car in order to get in front of another car, only to be stopped at the light. "Another car" honked his horn at him, justifiably.

'Roid Boy jumped out his car at the light screaming at "another car." He was this little short git with tattoos and I kid you not, he did the arms-akimbo monkey posture, flexing. He certainly had muscles for someone 5'5", I'll give him that. He was standing in the middle of the road posing, and his girlfriend got out (she was much taller and probably on the same steroid regimen, she was quite muscular) and tried to calm him down.

Now, my dad is not one to stay quiet in situations like this... "Hey asshole! You were the one who cut him off!"

My dad and I are both big, beefy guys, nearly 500 pounds between us (mostly dad) and roid-guy made a quick calculation.

Thankfully Miss Roid talked him back into the car.

I was driving along at 58 in the left lane with my cruise on, like normal, and some asshole in a red boxtruck with flashing lights and a siren on came up right behind me and started tailgating!  Sensing that this was a grade A asshole, I immediately brake checked him and the moron wasn't able to stop in time and hit me.  A cop was there in less than a minute and for some reason arrested me!  The other guy was the one driving like a jackass!  Something about interfering with an emergency, but I wasn't paying much attention, I have lawyers and body doubles to take care of stupid things like legal problems for me.

This.  I shoot and I make sure I have absolutely no way to grab a gun in traffic.  I am prone to insane rages and living in Boston doesn't help (Christ, the honking).

I once got so infuriated with a traffic signal that I hopped the median, cut through a Burger King parking lot, drove over the curb, drove through some bushes, crossed a Barnes and noble parking lot, and then crossed the street to the place I was going.  Seriously though, it only cycled a left turn every other cycle and then for only enough time for one or two cars to go through.  At least a dozen cars were lined up to turn left.

Once I was doing 65 in the right lane of a 4 lane interstate. Some idiot decides that 5 over the limit isn't good enough for the right lane and tailgates for 4 miles. No other traffic in the other 3 lanes. After 4 miles my exit to a 3 lane interstate came up and he kept tailgating.

I kinda got annoyed at that point and decided that the minimum speed limit of 40 is a good speed if he's not going to maintain a safe distance. He eventually passed me after nearly 6 miles.

At no time was he blocked in. He could have passed me at any time. So I'm guessing he was trying to teach me a lesson or something.

I don't want to rile my blood thinking too much about it.

But I did see a few instant karma videos that were satisfying. Ones where the rager gets it back.
Anyone have any other good ones?

Was in a car driving across the city of Ottawa on a nice summer day, when a car ran a red light and very nearly t-boned the side I was sitting in. All traffic came to a screeching halt. Before I even realized it, I had hauled the driver out of his car by his hair and was about to turn him into a puddle of red goo in the middle of the intersection. My friends in the car managed to pull me off of him, we got back in the car and left him there. Fight or flight baby, it's a powerful thing.

I honestly don't know what kicked the whole thing off but this lady went batshiat crazy on me.  cutting me off, brake checking me, pulling up beside me screaming.  A total nutcase.

She ended up crashing into a guardrail...

I remember one time I was on a 4 lane urban highway and saw a pickup being tailgated by a muscle car fast approaching in my mirror.  This was during the morning commute, I had passed a pack of cars and was approaching another but overall traffic was flowing fairly well.  There was space for me to get over and let them pass, so I did.  They both pass me and I could tell this was a rage incident in progress.  The guy in the muscle car cuts in front of me immediately upon finding space, guns around the pickup and brake-checks so hard the truck has to swerve to avoid contact with the muscle car.  So the truck with a wall on the left (no shoulder on the left to go to at that spot) and now ME to his right decides I am the better thing to hit.  Or he didn't even notice my presence.  The good news is I didn't have anything to hit in the lane to my right so I moved over there and escaped with no physical damage, but my heart rate was high.  I called the cops, as the two farkheads sped off continuing to engage each other.

I regret using my cell phone while still driving, but I was hoping someone could respond.  As far as I know, nothing happened as a result.  No accident, I never saw either pulled over.

I was driving in Halifax crossing the top part of a T intersection with a green light when a bicyclist running the red from the other direction punched my car, tried to kick it and missed, and then yelled at me to watch where I was going.  Douche.

I revved my engine really loud once her got in front of me and scared him off the road but that was pretty much the extent of it.

That wasn't in Columbia, SC was it?  Because if it was you might have a very loose use of the term "muscle car" and that truck almost killed me twice before I started brake checking him.  The bastard was trying to force me up the car in front of me's tailpipe and then he passed me on the left where as your story notes THE SHOULDER ENDS and I had to slam on brakes to keep from getting side-swiped.

/I did not see anyone in the right lane when I forced my way back in front of him.

Nah, happened in Denver.  I-25 southbound between Colfax and 6th if it matters.  It was a late 1960s Impala.  Black, modified exhaust at least.  Couldn't see any badging to help with engine size, but the noise was a V8.  Not that it narrows it down much.  Oddly I don't remember much about the truck despite getting a REALLY good look at it.

Someone was roadraging in a 60's Impala?  Who risks that even if you are pissed?

It was not in what I'd call terribly good shape.  I'm guessing it was a rolling project.  Based on how it sounded, he had done all the running gear, but body was not straight and the paint was definitely old.

I did have another story.  Much funnier with no personal risk.  I was traveling between Boulder where I worked and my parents' place in the mountains west of town.  For any locals, this is on highway 93.  There's a small passing zone where I attempted to pass someone and was blocked.  The guy cut over, no signal and he closed the gap to make sure he was communicating clearly the intent.  After that, there's no other really good place between where we were and my turn. I settle in behind the dude as he cruises along slightly below the speed limit and the other cars pull away. The guy kept watching me in his mirror, expecting me to do something.  I think he spent more time watching me in the mirror than on the road in front.

We get close to where I'm turning, the light is red for our direction and traffic is compressing again.  A lane opens up to the right which becomes the right turn only lane.  I signal and get into the lane and the guy jerks over in front of me to block like he had on the passing lane.  Only this isn't his turn.  He's forced by the divider to turn right and a short way down the road, he pulls over.  I pass by, watch in the mirror as he waits for a clearing, turns around and heads back to the road he had been on, now on the red light again and watching cars that had been behind me go through.  I laughed.

Years ago I was in the Bay Area, living in Milpitas an working in Menlo Park.  I would take 237 to 101 and up to Menlo Park, but had to weave through the horrible traffic by my apartment first.  One of these streets involved a right turn which had a line several blocks deep.  Every morning there were some cars that would run along the entire line of stopped cars and cut in at the very end.

This woman tried to do that with me, only I nudged my truck up and blocked her.  She honked and yelled at me, and I ignored her completely which happily enraged her even further.  She did manage to get in behind me and began tailgating me. She stayed mere feet off my rear bumper all the way to 237, and stayed there even after I merged into traffic. Having played this game before, I stayed in the slow lane and slowed from 60ish to 50ish, and then from 50ish to 40ish, but she stayed right there, glaring at him.

I saw I had an almost full tank of gas, and since she showed no inclination of passing, despite her apparently being in a hurry before, I decided to go for a ride.  She followed me onto 101 and then all the way up to Redwood City where I got on 84 heading West. (Never getting faster than 50 mind you.)  She continued to follow across 205 and all the way into Woodside.  I was lucky enough to catch her suddenly look up from her hatred of me to realize she didn't have a clue where we were.  She did a U-Turn at the next light and I went one more before turning around too.

I thought it was a CSB, but my boss was less than impressed when I rolled in somewhat late.  I really wish she'd followed me to Hwy 1 though.

Had a '71 Cadillac back when I was doing tech support on the DC Beltway. Mercs and Beemers would run into each other rather than encounter The Witch's primered black ass. Was great, 400+ horsepower, heavy Detroit steel, and a big ol' fark YOU.to anyone.
