OK guys need some advice on a road rage incident I was involved in this morning. After leaving my house travelling along a main single carriageway this guy pulls out in front of me. He makes no attempt to speed up to the flow of traffic so I overtook him. He then flashed me to acknowledge his disgust. About 200 yards up the road he is behind me I make a gesture (not rude) that suggests the guy has no brain. Well thats it - he then turns into a complete psychopath winds his window down fing and cussing waving his arms and swerving behind me. Coming up to this road about I go into the turn right hand lane to turn right. This guy comes along side me still shouting and swearing. At this point Im thinking that Ive got a right nutter on my hands here - I thought he was going to get out of his car and either attack my car or make an attempt to get hold of me. Im now pulling off onto the island to get away from this guy but get slowed by a truck that has just pulled out. This guy in the left hand lane (still waving his arms and shouting at me) then cuts across the front of my car pushing me towards the centre of the island and scraping my front wing and bumper all down the side of his car he then pulls off as if nothing happened. Im now right behind him following him wondering whether to flash him to pull over and have the guy start on me or my car or to just pull over. Anyways I take the guys plate down and decide it might be safer for both me (maybe him not that hes hit my car) and my car to just pull over and check the damage. So I pull into the next lay-by. After checking the damage and feeling extremely pissed I get back in the car and floor it. About half a mile down the road I pass this guy!!! So I (safely) pull in in front of him just before the next set of lights. Now Im ready - this guy has damaged my car and Im not best pleased. He pulls up into a lane just across from me. I wind my window down and gesture to front of my car - at first this guy wouldnt open his window. After more shouting he opens his window and all he can say is "Your a fing knob" - over and over again. The lights go green and I now have to pull off as Im in a different lane of traffic.
Sorry about the essay guys but Im really, really charged up at the mo. Not sure whether to report this guy to the Police cause I have his plate or to just leave it and think of it as a lesson learned in road rage. I think he lives not too far from me as he was pulling out of a housing estate just around the corner from where I live - so if this guy is a psycho and I report him it might have a knock on effect. Also what do I gain if I report him with no witnesss I doubt Ill get anything from his insurance. The damage isnt too bad and will probably polish out with a bit of effort.
What a sh1tter of a morning.
