funny how 40 years of liberalism has trained people to simply accept boorish behavior. In NJ, they call it scum bagging - and, it is a way of life. Those who think they are better than you are exploiting you. I'm glad the OP did not tolerate it.

When I come up on a lane closure, I actually move over towards the closure, effectively keeping the dim witted ******bag behind me(This applies whether someone is coming up already or not just general practice)...

That's an unfair generalization. I'll admit that living in litigation-crazy Cali changes your outlook (in Rome do as the Romans do), but I happen to be one of those conservative gun nuts that they haven't gotten rid of yet. Avoiding/defusing conflicts is just good advice in modern society. I get road rage and know I gotta keep it under control because they shoot, you shoot back, and then everybody loses, especially when the cops show up. A little courtesy and restraint may seem like pussified behavior to some, but it's just common sense and self-preservation. Rule #1: survive the commute.

Here in LA we have a lot of racial tension and gangs and we never know who's in the other car. If aggressive behavior rubs you the wrong way (good luck with that because it's an everyday occurrence!) you can always report road rage or drunken driving: cops are everywhere and hungry for tickets these days. I don't report people - I get out of the way so I don't end up on the local news. If they corner me, it's going to be another story, but I won't escalate/instigate/posture.

Disclosure: as a security professional I have weapons in the car at all times - this will make you think twice as you're held to a higher standard. Liberals want to disarm everyone so that they can be mouthy and brash without fear of consequences - it's in their nature. I say: "an armed society is a polite society". Sure, it does takes a toll to appear to be backing down at times, but only the weak are constantly looking for fights. A wise man picks his battles instead, and couldn't care less about what other people think. However it's turned, the OP's actions were ego-driven. I'm not condemning him (only human, and I give in myself on occasion), but since we're discussing the matter, I think we should look at all the angles.

Finally, "be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle".

I think you maybe my brother from another mother, lol. Seriously, those two quotes about "an armed society is a polite society" and "be kind to everyone you meet for they may be fighting a harder battle" were running through my head.
I don't condemn the OP either, I've been guilty of doing the same thing myself many times in my life, the guy was being a complete jerk by threatening to hit the guy's Challenger with this car to force his way in.
No, I am no p@ssy, I maybe a woman but when it comes right down to it if it's necessary for me to defend my life, property or family I'm the last person on earth you want to cross. I am a red blooded conservative to the core.
When I was taught how to safely handle and use firearms I was also taught the respect that goes along with the privilege, I used to carry concealed myself. There will always be a firearm in my household.
Lord I know I am still not fully cooked however with age comes wisdom, learning to pick your battles, letting stuff roll off your back and being the bigger person.

Trekkie Rage

Originally Posted by WhiteRT12 View Post
So I'm driving along and come up on a slow down on the hwy for a construction zone. I move to the lane the signs indicate and get in line. Of course, some driver much more important than the rest of us flies past everyone in the closed lane up to the point he couldn't go further. So then he tries to force his way in. I wouldn't give. I figured since he flew through the closed lane and was attempting to cut everyone off, i didn't feel sorry for him. So he gets more and more angry as we inch forward that I'm not getting out of his way. He brings his suv within 1/2 inch of my Challenger. My mirror was almost touching his side, and his mirror literally HUNG OVER my hood! I ignore the yelling and stand my ground. He forces in behind me and starts snapping pictures of my car- presumably the licence plate??? So once we're out of the construction zone I let him pass and fall in behind him to snap pics of his vehicle and plate just for the hell of it. This sends him into a rage.

I can't figure out what the heck he would do with pics of my car? Report me for waiting in line in the correct lane in the construction zone? Or maybe report me for not allowing him to cut everyone off from the CLOSED lane? Maybe he wanted to report that he attempted to use his vehicle as a weapon? I mean heck, I must be a menace to society for not getting out of this tool's way so that he could drive illegally and more aggressively quicker.

What could this moron possibly do with the cell phone pics?

Bosox, I agree with your general point here about people not accepting inappropriate behavior, but if you ever really want to be taken seriously, guess which part of your post (and I've seen you do it over and over and over again) you might want to hold back on? By the way, what's the significance of 40 years in your mind?
