Apparently, the victim in the video made an abrupt stop which made the raging dude rear end him, meaning that he must've been tailgating. Funny how it's the victim's car who gets hit yet the guy who failed to maintain his distance is the one who's pissed.

I had some adult road rage on me years ago, came and started physically attacking me and I managed to fight him off and he left me alone. Scariest thing of my life, caught me off guard completely since I was 20 and he was probably around 40, was not ready for him to start hitting me at all.

I had a guy punch me in the face through the passenger window once. We were driving back from the beach and he thought we cut him off on the highway, so he started harassing us....kept switching lanes in front of us, then hitting the brakes. One of the times, we couldn't brake in time to stop and we hit him. It was on. He came flying out of his car and grabbed the driver, ripping him out of the truck. They fought. In the meantime, the guy's wife had also jumped out and was at the passenger window, yapping, yelling, etc. at the guy beside me in the passenger seat (I'd been seated in the middle of the cab). She reached in and grabbed my long hair and pulled it. When I fought back to get free, her husband (who was going back to his car because another car was pulling over to intervene) ran over and took a swing at me through the window. I ended up with a broken nose and a nice shiner. He ended up in court, charged with assault. :)

All because we changed lanes in front of him as he was changing into the same lane behind us.

Yes, but the HOV lane, though left, is not the passing lane.

People that drive too slow in the HOV lane need to get the hell out of the way. Getting somewhere faster is the purpose of the HOV lane.

You want to drive slow? Use the slow lane.

Road rager's bizarre excuse

December 19, 2012, 6:18 pm Neil Doorley Today Tonight
Following a dramatic road rage attack that was captured on camera and broadcast last night, a driver who went berserk handed himself in to police.

http://au.news.yahoo...bizarre-excuse/

The attack was so violent and relentless the victim feared for his life, and the pictures that we brought you shocked the nation. However the excuse of the man behind the crazed motorway behaviour is hard to believe.
Still raging and still defiant, Australia's angriest driver says that he's actually the victim
The chilling road rage attack on Ken Olsen certainly got the nation talking, with every heart-stopping moment caught on camera and even Olsen's call to the police recorded.
Time after time, Olsen was forced to throw road rules out the window to evade a black ute. A former police officer, Olsen says he's never witnessed such a violent road rage incident and believes driving skills honed during his time as a police officer probably saved his life.
"I believe that if I didn't have those skills, he would have driven me into a tree, flipped me over - just caused an accident," he said.
All the evidence he needed was recorded by his dashboard camera, and today (after being exposed on Today Tonight) the accused road rager surrendered himself to police.
police.

Road rager says video 'fake'

Reporter Neil Doorley caught up with the angry Australian driver accused of ramming and smashing a driver's car in a bizarre and violent road rage attack.


As Queensland police investigate, another of his alleged victims has broken her silence.
"He's a maniac and he should not be on the road at all," the alleged victim said.
She's too afraid to reveal her identity, fearing the man who stalked Olsen will again target her. However she remembers being menaced by the same ute with the same distinctive sticker on the back, near where Olsen was chased.

"There's oncoming traffic and he would just cut straight in front of them. He swerved once again out over double lines and back in in front of the truck, and then just floored it. He ignorantly decided he was going to put everyone's lives at risk and do it," she said.
Olsen's life was certainly put at risk as his car was rammed at least seven times.
It seems Australia's angriest driver will need a new defence – as the saying goes, the pictures don't lie.

I was driving to work down the #1 highway one day when I came across a flatbed in the left lane beside a wide load trailer, both going about 50.

I stayed about 6 or 7 car lengths behind the flatbed and flicked my high beams to signal I wanted to pass. There were no other vehicles within sight in front of and behind me.

Instead the flatbed slows right down, to a crawl at times, and starts slamming on his brakes and weaving in front of me, to prevent me from passing. This continues for a few minutes until I finally manage to pass him dangerously and continued on my way.

A few minutes later down the road, I glance into my rearview to find the flatbed zooming up like he's going to ram me, if I didn't accelerate in time I'm sure he would have.

I prevent him passing and getting too close until finally I have enough, and toss a sparkplug out my window when he was directly behind me which badly cracks his windshield.

He didn't like that much and I figured he'd try to follow me on my exit and all the way to my work if he could, but fortunately for him he didn't.

Wrong.

The HOV lane is for people with multiple passengers, for buses...last thing I want is a bus load of people exceeding the speed limit.

Any loser that wants to go over the speed limit and complains when someone in the HOV lane is doing the posted maximum deserves to have their license revoked.

Driving is a privilege - don't be the "one in every crowd".

Let's just say there's a special place in Hell for them and I hope they get there quickly.

If you have a sparkplug at the ready, then YOU are the menace, imho.

Do us a favour and stop driving before you kill someone,

The person doing the speed limit in the HOV is not the one in every crowd - that would be the moron who thinks he can honk his horn and flash his lights because he thinks he owns the road and can do what ever speed he feels like.

I will always do the speed limit in the HOV lane.

It's High Occupancy Vehicle - not Autobahn....

Obviously you're one of the millions who is part of the road rage problem if you feel the speed limit isn't fast enough in a HOV lane.

If you're driving too slow for traffic, then get off the road.

What people who drive too slow for traffic don't realize is that while they think they're being safer, they're actually causing more reasons for potential accidents.

This is why more and more cops are pulling people over for driving too slow.

Btw. I'm not a maniac driver. I'm just driving with traffic. People that treat the HOV like a slow lane need to just use the slow lane, because THAT'S what the slow lane is for.


Meanwhile, a 2-person requirement for HOV is useless these days. It should be three. Maybe that'll ease the amount of la-di-da Sunday cruisers treating the lane as their personal driveway.

Do us a favour and stop driving before you kill someone,
