It's funny how road rage victims always claim they didn't do anything to provoke it.  If you drove like a d*ck just admit it, it still doesn't justify a shooting

"It was really random. I didn't even expect it." The victim said. "The fact he could have shot me, not that I wasn't gonna slide."

Anyone know what this means?

"I went to change the lanes, and the guy refused." The victim said.

As in, you just started to pull over without a signal and without even checking to see if someone was there?

I've seen that before. I certainly don't condone or approve what the shooter did, but it's legal to think about it.

The "victim" stopped from shooting back with his gun to defend himself and decided to get the police involved.

Chuck, you followed a guy that shot at you to his house. At that point, you're the aggressor. No defense there.

That's not even remotely correct. You have every right to follow someone who has attempted to murder you. The police will strongly recommend NOT doing that, but it is perfectly legal (and moral) to do so. As long as you don't engage with them directly nor threaten them with a weapon of your own.

I've encountered several assholes that refuse to let me in the lane, even though I am signaling, and they can tell I need to get in to get to an exit etc, sometimes forcing me to speed up dramatically or hit the farking brakes, because they are adamant I have massively change speed to get behind them, or get way out in front of them. farking assholes that make the road dangerous for everyone

It's not a god damned race track, and it sure as shiat is not YOUR lane, so chill the fark out, take a breath, stop being an asshole and let people in so traffic can flow and people can get to where they need to go without dealing with your bullshiat

So you want them to speed up dramatically or hit their farking brakes because you didn't make your lane change early enough?

The victim said he decided not to use his own gun to defend himself and instead got the police involved.
"I could have shot him at that point but now I'm in the back of that car to whether I was right or wrong. Now I gotta prove that I was right," the victim said.


Whoa there, WTF? You're going to have to turn in that US citizenship. You had a gun, you were shot at, and you chose not to shoot back? You just missed a perfect opportunity to live out an action movie fantasy and start shooting wildly, missing the guy with every shot, but hitting several nearby houses and a killing someone out walking their dog.

Sounds like you need to better plan your drive. Being aware of what lane you are in and giving yourself enough time to get to the proper lane are all part of being a good driver.

Do you get flipped off a lot in traffic and have no idea why?

Agree it's not OK to shoot someone for being an asshole, but I'll still bet the guy is an asshole.

It happens to me fairly frequently that I signal my intent to change into an open space in the lane next to me, and someone else who is already in the lane accelerates from behind into said open space, preventing me from moving over even though I am signaling. Maybe that's what they mean? Many drivers just can't seem to bear the idea of someone getting in front of them.

Get a good EV.  The insta-speed makes these types of drivers obsolete.   Here, people don't let you merge on the highway, they actually speed up and close the gap.  No problem, in 0.05 seconds I just go in front of the guy he is now tailgating.   Go fark yourself now lol

/Actually a passive driver
//Cant even use autopilot, as it doesn't drive as polite as I do :P

...yeah, I think 'Murica, as a whole, disproves that theory. It's a shame, as I like Heinlein, but we apparently have 120.5 guns per 100 people with a registered to unregistered firearm ratio of 1:365.3 - we are, far and away, the most armed society on the goddamned planet.

Even casual observation indicates that we, as the most armed society on the planet, are by no means the most polite society on the planet. It's a fun quote, but it's likely time to put it out to pasture as wishful thinking.

I fully agree that you should plan properly and get in the proper lane early so that you don't have any problems. That said, sometimes, especially when you're driving in an unfamiliar place, you find yourself in situations where a turn comes up unexpectedly. Being courteous to others isn't going to kill anyone, even if you think they're in the wrong.

I'm a Canadian though and don't drive around with an AK-47 and a massive ego, so what do I know.

Proportional anger is fine. You don't like how someone drives you can flip them off or even call the police. You do not have the right to purposely crash into them or shoot them. The person who shot the gun should go to jail.

Going around again when you do miss your exit is also encouraged.  Seen many who feel that backing up on the interstate is the appropriate response.  Probably the same ones who drive into the Bright line train
