The Jerk

Replying to Radhika's question, 'Are you short tempered?' brought back memories of times I had been gripped by road rage.

Do you 'suffer' from road rage? If so, what is it that other drivers do to tick you off?

I get pretty miffed with people that drive like idiots on the road. No. 1 - don't drive on someone's bumper. And no. 2...if you are 20'ish you don't have to show the world how fast you drive!
You bet i do !I love driving and it is my alone personal time to enjoy myself listening to really good music.While I am ok for people to honk but showing your finger isnt nice at all.No one deserves that !
I do get road rage..... 'if'! I see something very bad, like driving that can cause an accident.With no care for others, and it is mainly young men on their P plates!!!
No not really. If you anticipate that everyone drives poorly then you can go onto the road expecting the unexpected.
Interesting dream, because your last words were taught at a Defensive Driving Course I did years' ago! And I practise it every time I drive.

I am sorry to say it yes I do suffer road rage. I have tamed it down a bit lately as my 2 1/2 year old son repeats the things I say in the car.
Oh, yes. You must be very careful of what you say in front of children. They are like sponges with mouths. Haha.

I'm not a stickler for rules & mostly indulge in defensive driving. But I suffer road-rage almost everyday by the following people:
Those not indicating at turns or lane change
Those not giving way at roundabouts
Bumper kissers / tail-gaters
And worst of all people driving at much lesser (about 20-30km/h lesser) than the speed limits - this especially in 40-60 zones. If I see elderly people at the wheel it's okay but most often it's the late teens or those stupid people who don't want to park their cars while searching an address.
Sometimes I've been followed by people with high-beam on (deliberately or not) and troubled by cars that appear to deliberately not giving way.
I've showed my rage by serving them what they serve me & finally when they drive past me I just give them a pleasant smile irrespective of what they say/do/display.
I've a big white 4door sedan. I nearly touch its' roof, as I'm tall. I've short hair. Wear a baseball cap to keep my hair flat, otherwise I'll arrive at my destination with hair looking like a 'porcupine'. No aircon, so front windows are down.

When viewed from behind, I'm obviously THOUGHT to be in an 'unmarked cop car', people slow down. It's really funny to see!
So no, I don't get road rage, just the opposite!
