This is a question Road Rage

Last week I had to stop a guy attacking another one in the middle of the road - one had run the lights whilst on the phone and the other had objected. I actually had to take the attacker's car keys out of their car and tell him he wasn't getting them back till he calmed down.

Looking back on it, I was lucky I was feeling all parental and in control or the situation could have panned out very differently.

Have you lost it on the roads, or have you been on the recieving end of some nutter?

VW Golf GITs
First of all I used to own a VW Golf GIT, but unlike those idiots encountered by Technotrousers, I tried to pilot mine with due consideration for everyone else. Biggest arse-ache for me was all the Neds in their battered Escorts, Novas etc who'd assume that I was up for some sort of race and either carve me up at roundabouts or sit behind me at traffic lights revving engines and/or driving right up my chuff. For fucks sake! There's no way in a million years that some chavved up 1.1 litre Nova is going to out drag an electric golf cart from the lights. Best to let 'em go, better they crash into someone else instead of me (chances are they'll have no insurance anyway).

BTW, why do these idiots think that a big bore exhaust and a set of Halfords alloys is going to endow their piss poor excuse of a four seater roller skate with anything more than the sound/performance of a wheezy rhinocerous suffering from terminal flatulence? The PWEI track "Beaver Patrol" was written especially for those fools.

These days I'm a victim to the incredibly piss-poor quality control/customer care standards of Alfa Romeo. Granted, there are much fewer instances of people trying to tailgate/carve me up etc, but you get such amusing episodes as bits of plastic with a wire stuck in inexplicably failing every year (and costing upwards of 250 to replace), tracking which goes out of alignment all by itself, radiators which corrode, electrics seemingly randomly wired and guaranteed to fail, dealers who don't give a shit and say "well, it gives the car some character don't you think?" when attempting to justify a 300 bill for unbolting a piece of metal, Filing it a bit and bolting it back up again (after losing my car in their forecourt after it was one of eleven Alfas to break down and get towed to this particular dealership over the course of a weekend).

Ah, motoring. Don't you just love it?
