Angry Car Accident, And more of a reason for me to hate Hondas

Well, I was cruising down Military (one of the main streets in San Antonio) tonight and some jackass in an accord was trying to race me, I kindly declined.

He then decides he wants to cut me off while I'm going 40MPH and have to slam my brakes and then stop at a light a little farther up.

As the light turns green, he takes his precious, precious time driving...going about 20mph down a 35. I then decide that I am going to go around him. I put my blinker on, pop into second and speed up to about 40. I assume he thinks I want to race after doing this, and decides to cut me off...and it's not just any old regular honk and flip the bird while you yell profanities in your car so no one can hear type of cut off...no, this is a 2 inches from ripping my front bumper off, type of cut off...I then slam my brakes and am going to hit him, one way or another. I can go right and have the car that was behind him hit me, or I can go left and hit the median, or I can just hit him...

I choose to go left because there was an opening for a turn...figured I'd try to make it goin about 35-30 mph...doesn't work, I eat the curb! My front passenger axle is , it's backed into the fenderwall and both the front and rear tires/wheels are blown and bent. My front end looks slammed thought, looks pretty good! lol

Car won't start, it cranks up but won't start and has a grinding noise when you turn the ignition on...sounds horrible! I really have no clue whats wrong with it. Some guys that stopped to help us out were ASE certified mechanics and said it had something to do with my fuel rail and injectors. They also said my CAI may have gotten water in it...because there was sprinklers on in the street that we were pushing it, so it was puddles galore, but I told him it could be because: 1) the car was off in the water. 2.) the filter was dry. So hydrolock is out of the question. :P

it, that guy better hope I don't find out who he is or he'll be eating a 3 course meal out of a spoon for the rest of his life.


(sorry for the language, and any offense taken by any of my comments)

Thanks.


P.S. Everyone was fine (me, a girl name Jessica and my friend Fernie). And the cop was the coolest ever.

You know what dude? You didn't need to get involved in that type of action. Your car being banged up is your own fault. When you choose to act in a juvenile manner like that just because some stupid idiot with no brain provoked you, then that's what happens.
Sorry man, I have no sympathy. Now you think I am an idiot too....I know.

you should have hit him anyway and of course im sure he didnt put his blinker on and make his way safely into the lane you were in and could have been his fault anyway..

you should ahve maintained your speed when he cut in front of you the second time.. that would have been his fault and you had two witnesses in your car to back up your claim. Cop would have had to side with you.

I bet if you hit him and there was a witness, they would have said you were driving erradically. Sucks, shouldn't have happened, but what can you do.

actually he was doing the speed limit to begin with. this is the fault of the honda guy pure and simple. did you get his plates because you could call him in for reckless driving/ aggressive lane changes. you having to screw up your own car to keep from hitting him is reason enough to call this guy. he is a menace and it needs police attention right away.

Can't honestly say I would've avoided him. I like my focus, but it's not a very expensive car. I would've destroyed the back of his accord and then his face for something like that, but I also have rage issues too so... y'know. I can't believe you're being as calm as you are, I'd be going insane if that er got away.

I was driving to work earlier this week on a 3 lane highway (not freeway). I was in the middle lane with two cars in the lane on the left and one on the right. Then some in a t-bone shirt with some gay bandana on his head in a beat up white prelude comes flying up behind me but doesn't really tail gate me. I'm trying to cut back on the rage, (would've brake checked him or something) so I decide to speed up a little bit to pass the car on the right and move over so he can go about his buisness. So I pass the car and start to move to the right and the in the prelude comes flying by me IN MY LANE before I'm even halfway into the other lane and then cuts over into my lane. I had to pull off onto a side street soon, so I just put it in 3rd and passed him and cut back over into his lane and exited. He then proceeded to cut back to lanes to the left and start the whole thing over again with someone else.

Sometimes I just wish I could carry a gun in my car and do everyone else a favor.
