Maybe both of them should have been locked up rather than one?

Both of these guys getting off the road to continue the 'chat' shows they both were out of their minds... to choose one to be locked up over the other... sounds like the cops made the decision over the flip of a quarter.

But one guy lives near that exit, the other lives in a different county so i'm thinking one was really looking for a problem, the other is just your average schmoe..

Again & Again,
We need to implement a drivers test every 5 years which includes a written test.This will be mandatory to Licensed drivers and will be federal law.
If you fail to bad.No license for three months when you take the test again,you fail again license taken away for 1 full year.

70percent of American drivers should not be allowed to drive,they diregard every rule in the and jepodize the public!!!!!

I bet both of these guys were active participants in a hissy fit over macho mentality. They both engaged in poor behavior and either no one gets arrested, or both of them do.

I was teaching my children how to drive. I recommended not to even use the horn unless absoultely necessary. And at all costs, avoid eye contact with someone else. I can just see these idiots flipping one another off and now consume police and courts valuable time.

What is wrong with you people!? Give a little; get to work or where ever you're going without pepper spraying (or shooting, stabbing) each other. Did you really make up enough time to make it worth while? Now you are arrested (or shot,stabbed, punched, whatever) Think about it! Is an extra 5, 10 15 seconds worth it?

What's so difficult about rolling up the window and ignoring the nutcase in the other lane? They're both at fault but the guy who used the mace and fled obviously wasn't feeling like he had a strong enough case to deal with the police...

What kinda man carries pepper spray? F'n sissies'

For the record...if there were actual threats of physical repercussions there would be a LOT less bad driving going on.

Hello Verizon...you were in a company vehicle? At all times you are representing your company if in uniform or in the company vehicle. You should be facing diciplinary actions at work. Hope your superior addresses this issue. Some verizon customer service, you think? Just another case of one Long Islander trying to out do the other... just a bunch of competitive slobs...and we wonder why our kids are bullies? Both of you should be ashamed of yourselves. Haven't we enough to worry about than 2 fools trying to out-do the other's testosterone level? Nice example you set. You both should win some sort of CITIZENSHIP award.

The guy who is accused of hacking the super luggie must have some "spit" power to be able to propel it from his drivers seat across either his passenger seat or the other guys, then across the open air seperating the two cars and hitting the guy in the face!? WOW...what power!
I'd love to watch that being proved in court!

There is always two sides to the story...I am sure both are not innocent...if an argument/cursing continues for many exits and then continues on rt.106/107...its obvious they both knew what they were doing when they got off the road. Could it be true that once the pilot driver got off the verizon driver also got off to settle some business..or vice-versa! Again there are always two sides to the story...the other comments made it clear "both should have been detained...you cant have these lunatics driving on the road!"
