I'm a road-rager though. I don't get out and attack people, but I swear from inside my car. They don't know I'm even angry... I don't toot or give them the finger... I just yell profanities with my windows up. lol.

makes me wonder what kind of people these nasty /scary people really are... what do they do for a living? do they have families etc?.... I couldn't help but swear at a man in front of me who stopped dead in the middle of a roundabout with his indicator on not knowing who he was supposed to giveway to... um - you're actually ON the roundabout, keep going!!!!! lol. makes me wonder HOW some people pass a driving test as well.

I have to admit, I REGULARLY (as in, almost every day) have to tell my dh off for accelerating toward people cutting him off on a couple of roundabouts.
I'm a nervous passenger as it is, he had to intentionally keep trying to hit people?
He doesn't get that if he accelerates into the back of someone that's turned into the roundabout ahead of him, whether or not they're in the wrong for doing it, it's HIS FAULT!
I hate it. There are idiots on the road that can't drive. What does he think he'll achieve by trying to kill us all?

We've had people cut us off and then come to a dead stop in front of us are we are going onto the highway. This young punk kid got out of the car and started yelling at DH, who I was saying "do not get out of this car" to.
My mum has had a guy follow her and do all the fingers and yelling and then get out of the car and come hit her window. She just locked the doors and looked straight ahead til the cars moved.
I remember as a kid though my father used to get road rage something terrible and these people decided they'd have a go at him and yell and stuff, so my father pulled up beside them, got out of the car and told them to get out of their car as he was quite happy to "beat the living sh-t out of each and every one of the little bush whackers" (I remember because I was 9 and afterwards thought bush whackers was the best curse word ever). They took off. My mum yelled so much at him lol.
DH gets road rage but he controls it these days, he'll just sit in the car and yell and swear. I'll say, "You're an idiot, you realize they can't hear you right? Only I can. And I think you sound like an idiot." Then he will just be ticked off that I told him off and forget about the road rage.

I have had one major one that totally freaked me out.
It was with a bus. There was a roundabout with 2 lanes, I went through and he thought I cut him off so he tail gated me and was bipping his horn. This went on for about 3 minutes. At one stage he was behind me at lights and was just flashing his lights and bipping me. When we went through the lights he came up along side of me and going ballistic. I was totally scared and freaked out. I had DD1 who was about 2.5 in the back and I was heavily pregnant with my second. This was driving outside our major shopping centre so couldn't take off. When I got home my whole body was convulsing from fear and shock. I ended up ringing the bus company and making a complaint (I did get the bus number). I wouldn't give my name as I was too scared, but the man I spoke to was very, very apologetic.
That's really the only time.

Ive had two that i can think of..
Once when i was turning off a busy highway into our street, its on a bend and was a public holiday so loads of traffic, i slowed down and indicated so early as I knew the roads were busy, anyway a motorbike was tailgating me and so loads of people didnt see my indicator as the motorbike was in the way, then this guy goes past me at like 70kms a hour and punches my window and screams at me, so i planted it and toted n flashed at him as i was so annoyed, how dare he touch my car, we both pull over he gets out his ute (where i can see a toddler running around the backseat with a seatbelt) grabs a machette (sp?) out the tray and walks up to DP's window when i was the one driving!! Long story short we screamed at each other and he noticed he was in the wrong and said agree to disagree... Douche Bag!
Another one, we both pulled off the freeway and i jumped into the right hand lane as i was getting off at the next exit, and well I wasnt going fast enough for this guys liking so he was getting so close to my bumper, when he could have easily gone around, so i exited at the next street he followed, and kept following me for about 5 mins as i was trying to lose him, then at the lights i put down my window and waved and said
"if youd like to keep following me im heading to the police station and im sure they'd love to see you!" hehehe he sped off straight away

Uh I was driving with my sister one night and she chucked a lolly out the window (didnt like the flavour) and it hit a car parked on the side of the road. We didnt think anything of it until 10 seconds later a car was tail gating, high beaming and beeping the horn at us like crazy. Anyway so I just pulled over and the guy walks upto the car and starts yelling at me. I wind down the window and hes shocked to see two little Asian girls staring at him. He said sorry must have the wrong car and walked back to his car! It was funny but I make sure anyone who gets in my car now uses the bin!!!

I had just exited a motorway and there was 3 exit lanes which then come down to two about 300m after the 60 zone kicks in. I was in the left lane that was ending and hand my right indicator on, I could see the douchbag in the middle lane want going to let me in but my lane was ending so had to move over, either that or drive head on into a concrete wall, or slam my breaks on and wear a B-double up my butt! Can I just as there was no one in the far right lane so he could have moved over hit just decided to be a C bomb instead
Anyway I got in the lane and the. He decides to go round me but then cut back into my lane right infront of me ad slam his brakes on and come to a complete halt.... Lucky I have quick reflexes because I came very close to his bumper, he then rolled up to the lights at 10kms p/hr so I kept right back incase he braked again but then he put his car in reverse and came up close to my bumper. We continued for another km like this, him crawling at low speed and slamming his brakes on, every time I tried to change lanes to get away from him he would cut me off. as we approached another set of lights they went orange and he was first in line so I waited until he was at the lines and I turned down the free left turn to get away from him.... I had to pull into a side street and have a little cry and calm down before I could continue home
There have been lots of little incidents that have really annoyed me and there has always been an exchange of words and some finger pulling but I've never had anyone get out of their cars and approach me.... Probably a good thing because I have a really short fuse and get angry at the smallest things so if probably end up on assault charges
