Ed chimes in:
Road rage is a common problem. I have officially advised to check my road rage at the end of the driveway, no matter what.
In the thiry some years I have been riding, I have been run off the road several times, including once by a police car, and during my wilder youth, I would vigorously attack the squeezer. After I did a review of physics, I realized that there was no way a 700 lb. motorcycle would win in a confrontation with even something the size of a Lotus Elan.
This didn't stop me, though, Ive fcked with trucks, buses, cars full of idiots, other motorcyclists (what is it about wingers?) and anybody else who has pissed me off.
In the long run it has resulted in nothing positive.
I don't know about Lawdawg's case, but even if I could run a hardball through an engine block, I would guess that my employment status would be on review after a shooting, even off duty.
I should write, in summation. Yes, it is a major life threatening piss off to be attacked by another motorist, but there is no way we can win, physically. Use the cell, hope the local police aid you. It is the best we can do.
