I witness this type of angry driver often on I-81. The latest road rage incident I saw involved a woman throwing food out of her sunroof. I guess she thought the car behind her was tailgating. The guy passed her on the right and braked in her lane. She drove in the median and nearly flipped the car. I don't know what makes people so angry when they drive. The nicest person sometimes becomes the Hulk behind the wheel.

Same thing when people carry guns. They start fights because they have a gun.

Seems there is a lot of that here lately. Just the other day I was leaving the Medicine Shoppe trying to turn left on Second St. No one would let me out so I sat there and sat there until finally I saw a break, the guy was maybe 50 yards from me and I pulled out he sped up laid on his horn and saluted me with both fingers. The light was red so why he did this I have no clue since I didn't slow him down any. Like most of us I wanted to get out of the car rip him out and settle it right there but instead I said a Prayer for him which calmed me down and we both went on our way with no problems.

Insurance companies will raise their rates after they are charged with a road rage incident. The state will issue points against their driving record and if they exceed 5-6 points - it could mean a suspended license and an expensive trip to driving school.
Road rage is dangerous. If you kill or injure someone, you could go to jail. Depending on what the trooper witnesses you could still get locked up.

I just saw a guy on the crosswalk on Main Street near the Capitol. Several cars passed by as the man was crossing. He flipped them off in anger. Do motorist have any idea what's at stake if they hit a pedestrian at a crosswalk? There's no place you have to be that's worth losing your house, cars and every dime you make following a lawsuit.
Slow down. The more you have, the more you stand to lose.

Everyone (especially police departments) needs to become familiar with Driving Law Chapter 33, Subchapter A, Section 3313 (d).

It is the most important law in driving, yet unfortunately, one of the least enforced.

I am amazed how many people worry about what someone behind them are doing.

Watch the road and not your mirror.

WHAT??? How does citing 3313 (d) be the most important traffic law.... If you read the subsection (d)(1)et al, you will realize just because the highway has two or more lanes... sometimes the safest lane is not the right lane. For example: on a three lane road the center lane is always the safest not to cause confusion... It takes away from interfering with folks speeding in the left lane and you do not need to deal with the merging traffic in the right lane. Other than that, citing this section is definitely not the most important law. Being curtious and respectful of others on the road is the most common sense rule of the road... If that was fixed all other laws would not be needed.

Dear Stupid,

Thank you for improving your driving skills. I suggest you now work on our spelling, punctuation and capitalization skills.

I'm sure the Police are aware of the driving laws, but it'
s a matter of having enough resources to witness offenders, and yet not have Taxpayers whine about how much it costs. It's the same issue with Teacher salaries and class sizes...you get what you pay for. If people would use teir cell phones to report offenders rather than chatty BS, a lot offenders might actually get caught. The other issue is pure driving studity. If you consider the dumbest person you've ever met...they have a drivers license and make decisions at 65 mph.

Any proof of this, or do you always make things up as you go along?
