    Insane drivers.

    I just stumbled upon the video:
    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=38a_1355887347

    In this video a man is trying to run another man off the road, and most likely kill/beat him up badly.

    Have anything like this ever happened to you, or have you ever seen something this bad?

    I've shouted in my car, and given someone the finger before (when they deserved it lol) but that's about all the road rage I've dished out on someone.

    The most that I've received is a lot of tailgating and ppl flashing lights at me - but hey, it's Ireland - most road users here are pretty chilled. And Dublin (capital city) is now reported to have the safest roads of all EU capital cities. Maybe it's worse somewhere else!

    Oh, I've also shouted at bicyclists when they're riding right out in the middle of the road, no helmets+lights, and a collision would have happened if I hadn't been on the ball and stopped in time (if it's dark it's very hard to see them)

    Watching on work computer without sound, not sure what's going on... Did the black car try to overtake on a one lane street, then cut off in front of the recording car deliberately to get bumped into? And then raged and tried to chase down the other car??

    im a fairly new driver and sure is mad to do like the above. Gotta say though i met the probally most retarded cyclist yesterday, i was breaking slowly to enter a parking lot (mind you going from like 50 km/ph to 40) and then this idiot cycles out in front of me, the twat should be SO happy i was already on the breaks as he would've ot herwise been rammed down or something.

    So point of it all, any mofo using the roads be it cycling driving skating or whatever can be insane twats

    I never see really angry/insane drivers... More incompetent/unobservant ones. Like, people driving the wrong way down dual lane one-way systems, then looking incredibly confused at me as I swerve into the other lane to avoid them. Or people not looking as they pull out onto a roundabout, so I have to brake hard to avoid hitting them (even though I have right of way).

    But generally speaking I'm in England, so people are awfully polite over here. Usually. It's just incompetence that you have to watch out for. :P

    Well, I don't own a car, I walk or ride my bicycle everywhere. So yeah, I've been on the receiving end of some scary behavior.

    When I lived further up north in Sweden drivers trying to scare pedestrians away from crossings was so common that I stopped being scared of it (as in, they see you nearing the crossing so they speed up to make you stop so they don't have to slow down for a couple of seconds to allow you time to cross).

    I've also had people do the old "OH LIGHT IS GREEN THAT MEANS GO GO GO GO NOW NOW NOW AAAH! PEDESTRIANS!! *hits brakes* *flips terrified pedestrians off and honks angrily because clearly the pedestrians are the irresponsible and inattentive ones*" a few times too many. A bit too common in morning traffic.

    Seems to be bat shit crazy. Good thing it's all captured on film, hopefully the police can deal with him easily.

    We're all thinking about it, so I'll just say it out loud to get it out of the way... what if this raving lunatic guy had easy *cough*USA*cough* acces to a gun? I know many of you will jump at my throat in a rage comparable to that on the video for this comment, but surely you can't deny that every incident like this where the perp did not have a gun is a credit for gun control?

    But we all know that law-breaking madmen like him would have gotten a gun from illicit sources anyway!

    I've had a few bad experiences, summer traffic mostly, people drive like fucking nutters in the summer... but I personally consider bikers(both motorcycles and normal ones) more insane then car drivers, people on their bikes seem to completely disregard the danger they pose to people around them, people in cars generally understand that running someone over will be messy, while not few bikers just seem completely ignorant to the fact that running into someone with a bike can be quite messy as well, seen some absolute lunatics.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    Yeah, I just find the way that pro-gun people always argue that to be quite silly. It's as though they forget people often randomly flip out like road rages.

    At least he seems ashamed, some regret perhaps?
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    I saw a driver get out of his car and stalk to the car behind his, start yelling at the closed window, punch the window, then start trying to kick it in. The driver of the car under assault took off as fast as he could.

    I think something like 2-4 years, dont quote me on that though. I've seen some crazy road rage in my day but nothing that violent, the worst I've had is some asshole that kept following me and throwing cans and other crap at me for about 20 mins, worst thing is I did absolutely nothing wrong.

    Holy cow. Closest I have been is being beeped at while stopped at an stop sign intersecting a highway. The driver behind me thought I was able to go through but there were cars coming. Once we both went through the intersection he passed me as if by doing so showed me the errors of my ways.

    Probably the funniest one I've seen is a guy turning left didn't see a guy coming from the right and T boned him. The guy and girl from the truck got out and started yelling at the guy for hitting their new truck as if the truck being new had anything to do with it. No physical contact and no injuries though so I left.
