The guy ended up going away, but 3 days later this same maniac followed DH home on foot while he was walking home from work, ended up confronting him in an alley way and urged DH to fight him.
DH told him he wasn't going to fight him and to back off. The guy quickly pounced on him, got DH to the ground and kicked the crap out of him.
This psycho wasn't properly punished by the law and he is still freely roaming the streets.
So please people, be careful, you never know how crazy some drivers can really be.

Not that it justifies it, but I think it is a man thing. My DH is the most gentle and sweet man but put him behind the wheel and he changes. He has no patience. He doesn't get out and confront people but he does do other things.
My attitude is you just don't know the person in the other car. Yes they might just be a bad driver but it could also be a old lady, or someone driving for the first time after having a serious car accident, maybe their child won't stop screaming etc.
If someone beeps me for no reason I just wave at then and continue on my merry way. Getting out of your car and confronting someone is very intimidating behaviour. I'd probably pack my pants while dialling 000!!!

Imo a small beep if people are just sitting at a stop sign for no good reason or sitting at a green light and obviously distracted is fine and if someone was to get of there car to confront me on it you betnid be calling thpolice on them , have you seen th stories on the news lately, no freaking way would trust anyone getting out of tyeir car and proceeding towards mine.
Dh was driving with us home one day in brisbane, had some silly p plater trying to race him speding uo slowing down , reving, hokning, yelling. (Happens all the time damn commodore, everyone thinks you own one you should race) dh didn't react, ignored him did the speed limit kept driving. Our turn of was coming out so we had to merge and well we mrgd infront of him, why I have no idea because we merged correctly but it upset th othr driver he kept diving really close to our car, we took our turn off and the other car still follwed behind and thdriuver was waving a bat out the window drve up beside us and told us to pull the eff over, this crazy dude follwed us rght into our driveway and got out of his car with his bat, and walked towards our car dh had a steering wheel lock under his seat grabbed it got out and told him if he didnt **** of dh would use and it wasnt an empty threat he had kids in his car and he was being extremely dangerous and that the police were on there way ( they weren't) and he said something like its your lucky day or something got in his car and left
People be crazy, really crazy.

I hate beeping, it's too confrontational to me so I never really do it UNLESS someone is purposely doing something reckless like changing 3 lanes at once on a highway! If someone is dawdling at an intersection or hasn't taken off at a green light, I just flash my high beams after a reasonable amount of time has passed. Which is more of a 'helllloo, are you alive in there?'.
I think getting out & commenting at a beep is totally unnecessary.
