Road Rage seems so incredibly common these days, and its so senseless. It would disturb me even more to know that someone was like that even in front of their kids. You ever notice how many of the people who do that couldn't do the same thing if they were face to face with the person, though? Ultimately, this was what I taught my kids to think about. If they do soemthing in anger behind the wheel, any one of those people could follow them to their next stop, then what will they do?
Believe it or not, I've actually had this happen to me from a police officer. I lived near a horrible intersection, where people were always having problems merging. The cop apparently didn't like it that I was able to turn onto this area really quick, so he deliberately prevented me from merging, running me off the road. I sped up, and he did. I slowed down, so did he. I stopped, and he stopped, so I wrote down his car number, followed him to his precinct, and reported him to the duty sergeant. I got called back for an investigation and took my two children, who were in the car with me, and the guy was suspended.
