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?

Another car park one
A few years ago I was trying to find a space in a busy carpark and finally saw a guy get into a van and prepare to reverse out, so I stopped and waited for him. It was a nice summer's day and I was in a good mood so sat patiently, singing along to the song on the radio. Suddenly Mr Van aborts his reversing, gets out and comes storming towards me with fists clenched, crimson face and turning the air blue with obscenities. Now I know my singing leaves a lot to be desired but it's never aroused a reaction like this before. Although scared I manage to remain calm, and once I can get some sense out him it turns out he thought I was telling to hurry up with his reversing. I point out his mistake and he stomps off muttering, no doubt angry to be denied a confrontation. No apology of course.

Moral, if there is one: be careful out there, the smallest thing can turn some people into Norman Bates.

First post after a long time enjoying all of your stories. Sorry it's not funny, but I guess road rage isn't either.
