Road rage= No life

Yesterday I was driving down a local road, basically has one light by a school and then nothing till you get to the buisness district which is about a mile and a half to a mile away. Anyway, the speed limit was xxx and i was diong between 30 and 35 but the road is very tempting to speed on, but I refuse to because I knew someone who lost their mother on the same road because of some stupid kid speeding, was underage too. So I'm going along and notice theres some stupid person in a new model sentra tailgating me, btw this was at night.

So alittle ways further the person is right on my ass, like at one point I couldnt even see his headlights thats how close I was. He didnt honk, flash his brights or anything, was just acting like a total dbag. So I give it alittle gas to put some space between me and him b/c slowing down was only going to make it worse and as I'm doing this he tries to pass me. So then I start to slow down and he cuts me off, so I'm like ok so I put my brights on, if he wants to be infront of me so badly then he can deal. So after I do this, he stops right in the middle of the road. There was some guy behind us all who didnt even slow down he just flew around us honking his horn. I stop and start honking my horn at him. I guess he could of got out the car, but I wasnt even thinking about that. So he makes a right turn, i keep going and I see him making a 3 point turn and comes back on the road....I'm like are you kidding now your going to follow me, which he did but from some great distance. I was driving back to my friends house and had two other people in the car so i made sure to just stay away from this person and not catch any red lights. So he wasnt like running on my ass again but he was following me...eventually he stopped and turned the other way. Then today, I think I saw him, cause i was driving on the same road and this sentra was infront of me and then he made a right, but he slowed down alot and was turning slowly, like he was checking me out...I think it was the same person again lol.

But seriously, your in that much of a hurry that you need to speed where your not suppose to and your almost touching my bumper. You don't honk your horn or even flash your brights (granted some people have good reasons and sometimes I will move out of the way if you politely ask) And then when you pass me you get pissed off I put my brights on and you stop in the middle of the road and then turn around and proceed to follow me. Obviously not in that much of a hurry......get a life. Rant over, people are so stupid....probably some punk ass kid who just got his drivers license and thinks he's hotness in his pimp sentra lol.

Yeah, definitely a dbag....lol. People I think forget that there's people inside these cars, that sometimes we look at everyone as machines.

I can never understand the lengths some people go through just to get, what.....one maybe two cars ahead of traffic? What cracks me up is when I pull up right next to them at a stop light.

You should have just pulled over let the ass pass and go on. Seriously you turning your brights on was just instigating even more, also if he was speeding that much after he passed he would have been gone after a few seconds (I'm just guessing you sped up to return the favor) and that surely was not helpful.

I'm not taking the retarded Nissan drivers side but you could have handled it better as well. I have received a ticket for trying to keep a driver like that off my ass and the cop said that was no excuse for speeding and I should just pull off and let them pass.

You misinterpreted me, after he passed me I didnt speed up to him, he wasnt doing the speed limit and was was quite a few cars ahead of me, at least 100 feet away....wasnt like I sped back up to him and started tailgating him with my brights on. After he noticed my brights were on, he slammed on his brakes in the middle of the road. When i said i was putting some more gas into it, I meant like a few speeds higher, sometimes when i do this the person will drop off a bit. So really all I did was go the speed limit and put my brights on and he flipped out and wasted his own time.

Ahh Ok, I was mistaken then Sorry.

Either way like the cop told me, next time this happens pull over and let them go. Its not worth getting killed over, these days its very possible to have some crazy ass person kill over some the dumbest stuff.

True...at the same time who knows, if you don't pull over and you continue to do the speed limit and try to slow the person down, maybe your still saving lives ya know. But anyway, yea the guy could of got killed cause if he got out of the car, the person flying around both of us probably would of hit him. And really, lucky for him I'm a good driver, cause if I was one of those other morons on the road like people who don't pay attention to whos behind them....what if I hit my brakes to make a turn, he would of just plowed right into me cause he was so close.

Sometimes I wish I was a cop and could pull people over. My ticket record would probably be outrageous, I probably wouldn't be able to find enough time in the day to get everyone. I'd have to like clone myself and have my own task force........

I had something like this happen with me cept I was passing the dude on a 2 lane highway and he rolled down his window, flipped me off and floored it. I proceeded to make him almost poop his pants by laying on the horn for a minute while I folowed his ass until I got to the road I wanted. The guy was in a sunfire figures...
