Have you ever been in a road rage incident? Or are you a road rager yourself?

I have been a victim of road rage, but I do not suffer from road rage personally. I am one of those people who just drives at the speed limit, or just under if there are double lanes and we aren't holding the traffic up. Once I used to speed etc, but then realised that I had better slow down because in a few years would have a son learning to drive. A bit hard to say "don't speed or whatever if you do it", so long before it reached that stage, I slowed down. LOL I have never been abusive to anyone, but that is just in case they decide to get out of the car and 'chat' with me. I enjoy life too much to want to chat with anyone I don't know, particularly if I have egged them on by being abusive. Just a little bit of a 'yellow' streak - down the back and as wide as the back is too. :)

Good on you. I must admit I have had some flustered moments, but overall when you think of the amount of fatalities, especially in this country, which astounds me by the way, we really should all be more patient.

Ok well I am also guilty but not of late, I found having a impressionable not quite teenager in the car a few years back helped curbed the colourful words. These days I just drive slower and chuckle.

Yes I am much more consciencious these days, think its because you realise the severe consequences that could occur. You sound like you're all grown up NOW, lol!

my friend is the worst the amounts of times that she shouts at people that are crossing the road or something, it can be a bit embarrasing being in the car with her sometimes

sounds like she needs an anger management course! And it is sometimes embarrassing, I had a friend that was in general a rager at everyone, in a shop, walking down the street where ever, I used to cringe. Needless to say I do not associate with her any more.

Oh yes I have. Traffic in the Philippines is so brutal that's why it would be impossible not to get in a fight. It takes a lot of will power not to punch somebody in the face.

I couldn't handle that, if I knew every time I got in the car I was going to have a hairy ride. I think I would walk instead.

I have been a victim of road rage many times. The worst one was when a friend of mine was driving and she decides to cut of this car. We got honked at and thought that it would end there. I was wrong. She followed us to a stop light and threw a glass bottle at the car. It was crazy and gutsy. She was the only person in the car and we had four people in ours. The two guys in our car got out and started harrassing her. PPutting her windshield wipers up. Baning on her window. It was getting crazy. Then, green light! Time to go. We were now following her. Let me just say that we got home safely.

You have to very very careful these days as you just don't know how people react or snap in a situation. Thankfully you are all ok. I did the finger at someone once, their fault, and then at the lights he gets out of his car and starts abusing me, I kept my mouth shut let him get it off his chest!

I don't know if this is necessarily considered road rage, but my mom honks at EVERYONE for every teeny little "mistake" or whatever. I remember one time, many years ago, she laid on her horn cuz some guy cut her off. We ended up at a stop light and I kid you not... The guy got out of his car and approached our van and I swear I thought we were all gonna die. Apparently, he just wanted to apologize, but that was a pretty scary moment and all due to my mom's "road rage" or whatever you wanna call it.

I know I shouldn't laugh, but that was funny. Good on ya mum! I guess honking your horn ALL of the time is considered road rage. Your mum was lucky in the fact the guy only wanted to apologise, I had one chap get out of the car and literally blow his top off at me, I was scared shitless!!

Glad to hear that you haven't had an accident. Sometimes its hard not to get a bit cranky on the roads, there are so many idiot drivers on the roads today.
