    • Ang, I definitely have road rage every time I drive. I’m always scraming at someone to get out of my way or to drive faster, or to use their signals. I’ve also been on the receiving end of road rage(although, I don’t know why, because I drive fast)

    • In my younger years, I would be irritated by the arrogant and reckless or road raged driver. Now I know that I have no idea what the driver is going on in the drivers head, whether it be under the influence of drugs, emotional distress or even if they have a gun and are looking for a reason to shoot someone. I just leave them alone and get out of their way and say a prayer that noone gets injured. I have seen too many car crashes through the years in the ER to know that life is too precious to let someone with an issue upset me.

    • I always get road rage and the worst part is I have no horn so I’m constantly yelling at other drivers through a closed window.  I’ve even yelled at dogs to get out of the road through the closed window.

    • When I was younger, yes I did have road rage, but now, I do not. I kinda agree with Max. I just let the person who is in a hurry go on.  

      However, just the other morning this young lady was following closely behind me; I guess I was not going fast enough for her so she pulled in front of me. I was in the right lane and turning right in a turn right only lane. Well, she was in the right lane, but turning left. She could’t get in the left lane because there were cars in the lane.  Therefore, I could not take a right on red because she could not move over and even when the light turned green, I still couldn’t go because she was going left and the cars would not let her merge over.  So, I thought to myself why in the heck did she speed in front of me and is going in an entirely different direction.  It really did tick me off for a split second, but I have come to realize I can not control the behavior of other people. I can only control my actions so I just sat there and listened to my Crystal Aikin song ‘I Desire More’ until the little witch moved out of my way tongue out

    • I don’t have road rage but I do get aggravated with drivers that go super slow...like ten miles under the speed limit...especially when you can’t pass them.

      I also get aggravated when people don’t follow traffic and safety laws. Like signal when you are making a turn or changing lanes.

    • Living in Utah is quite pleasant.  If there is a road rage, I pray God to delay their time in dying as well as asking for protection so that person won’t hurt anyone.  But in the past, I said “GO to HELL as you wish!”

    • I don’t drive but I am usually the one who yells and curses at stupid drivers when I’m the passenger happy and If the passenger had a horn on their side, I would be blowing It always!! I may not drive, but I don’t understand how some of these drivers got a licsence to begin with.

    • I used to get pretty upset in traffic when I was worried I’d be late to work (again).  I’m okay as long as I’ve had enough sleep and I have enough time to get where I’m going.  I drive pretty fast and have to stop myself from weaving in and out of lanes just to save a few minutes.

    • A funny story..I was with my mother one time when I was younger, she was driving, and these 2 teenagers pulled right out in front of us crossing our path into the other lane to go in the other direction, and without even thinking I screamed F**k You!! as I leaned over my mother flipping them off! LOL..She was mortified so yes I have had my road rage moments...The people that piss me off the most are driving behind me with their high beams and won’t pass, even when you slow down..or driving in the passing lane and going slower than the right lane traffic and preventing anyone from passing..or driving forever with their signal on, or going too fast when you can pass them, then slow down below the speed limit when you can’t pass, like they‘re doing it just to piss people off.  But the worst thing I’ve done has been to put my high beams on someone after they had theirs on the whole time behind me, then pass me. The other day my bf got into a screaming match because a woman behind us with an Audi was beeping at us when we were going over the speed limit on a back road, then we got to a stop sign and she pulls into the opposite lane to get ahead of us peeling out. So my bf freaks out, starts speeding behind her and scaring the crap outta me, right on her butt, and when we got to a stop light he pulled up next to her and yelled “Hey lady, have a little patience in life”  Then she says “Yeah I noticed you lost your brake peddle once you were behind me” then she takes off 100 miles an hour, my bf was so pissed that he couldn’t yell back he fumed for a good half hour, spittin and sputterin’ lol..I guess we all have our road rage experiences..now I’m much more calm and just let the jerks pass..but I will still do the high beams on them if they did it to me.

    • Yes - but not me doing the rage - I get very angry mainly at men who do very dumb things and yes I have got out of the car at stop signs and gone round to them and given them grief .......
      When my daughter was a baby I guy cut me up badly and nearly caused a huge accident - so I pulled him from his car he was scared stiff - I bet he never did it again .. his wife was in tears and thanked me !
