I had a guy with road rage follow me home over two miles to my gated community when I was in college. I called the cops and they pulled him over when he was still tailing me and being a dick.


How much time passed between when you call the police and when the police arrived to pull him over? Did you just keep driving around until the police showed up?


It took him like 6 min, he had to have been pretty close to where I was, I kept driving, the operator had me keep the line open.

I've just started driving and this is my literal fear I mean I've had cars follow behind me which is normal but i'm always afraid they might get angry if i'm not going fast enough. I always go the speed limit and hey if they want to speed they can go around me.

Was driving my kids home from school today and this car behind kept honking and tailgating me for 7 or 8 blocks until I was near my house. I could see from the rearview mirror that the driver was shouting and gesturing and looking very annoyed. The speed limit on the street was 35 mph at one point and 25 mph at another point, and I was driving 5 miles faster than the speed limit because I didn't want him to follow me too close and get into an accident. I stopped twice to let him pass but he stayed behind me, so I drove past my house and finally he passed me and gave me the finger. On the back of his car was a big sticker that read "NOTW" so I assume he is a very devout Christian. He didn't look like a thug or a gangbanger.

Has these situations ever happened to you? What would you do in these situations? I thought about following him to his home to ask him the reason for his hostility but decided not to risk the safety of my kids.



What's notw?

I hate seeing that. I especially pay attention on my speed limit when I'm in a residential area. Because it makes sense. I don't know when and where and even who would jaywalk in front of my car. The given speed limit sign gives me plenty of time to see and react to maneuver my car.

I experienced road rage cops. They used high beam lights, to almost blind me, signaling I should drive faster. And they can turn their high beam lights at you even when they're totally in front of you. I'm like what the fuck. That's so unnecessary.

Then when there's not enough time to make a left turn without getting caught by the traffic cameras, an officer behind me, two cars behind, got off from his car and literally approached me. He asked me why I didn't turn left. I said not enough time and I already got a ticket from the same camera before, I don't wanna risk it again. He had no choice but to go back to his car. But if you saw how I'd seen it on my rear view mirror as he got off from his car and walked with furious intent towards me, unbelievable.

A state trooper almost crashed at me with no care... so I don't know.
