The other main problem I have with these peckerheads is the fact that you know they drive like this ALL of the time, walking all over other motorists who are more or less just sheep moving about..talking on the phone and not paying attention to the fact that someone just ran a red light in front of them or cut them off with about 5ft between bumpers or who ride all the way up the wrong lane just to try and squeeze in and avoid having to sit in a line like everyone else. When I pop off on these mother ******* it's because i'm taking a stand and refuse to be walked on.

I honestly think people have become so dumb and careless about driving, it's actually more aggrivating/dangerous to know the rules of the road. Seeing all the blatantly wrong/illegal things that people do will make you head explode and of course the police don't give a damn if you call someone in...but by O M G if you are the one doing 90mph on the interstate at 3 am without another car around for miles.

I actually had something similar in my first car, a '91 Civic..

There's a small wing on the back, body color on top and black on the bottom. I took a squirter from an Integra I was parting and installed it under the wing pointed backwards. Routed line into the cockpit, and to select windshield or tailgater spray I installed a gang valve from the aquarium section at Petsmart under the dash but within reach.

I should qualify this by saying I always keep the left lane clear on the highway, I do my best to pass on the left. It seems like no one teaches teens anymore what a safe following distance is, so my device was a good reminder a few times.

Now I'll just hit the squirters in the OTM, but can't in the Miata since I shaved them.

BTW, in my experience the turbulence behind the car isn't much of a factor. Even in my hatchback, which should be worse than the GTO in the first post, the turbulence at highway speed whips the spray into a mist that envelops the follow vehicle instead of spraying it with a stream, so it becomes more effective.

One idea is also to have a high-pressure water gun filled with oil or tire shine, anyone on here who has ever dripped or spilled oil on their windshield knows it's almost impossible to get off without going through half a bottle of Windex.

He wired all the controls on it to do different tasks. If you push the toggle on top back my brake lights turn on but, I don't slow down. Just slam the button a few times and the ****** behind you backs off.

I'll post pics when I get out of class.

By not catering to the lowest common denominator in my posts i limit the dispersion of my valuable knowledge to only those worthy enough to think on what i say alittle.

Even thinking about pulling a gun on someone because they wronged you in traffic is ridiculous. The only weapons I would ever pull on someone is my left hand hospital, and my right hand cemetery.

NA6C, don't get you ***** in a bind cause I called you out for jerking off to children. Go ask for advice on faith or something....
Who said my **** was in a bind? I was just calling out a dick move because it was a dick move. Would have said it to anybody. Clearly you are still hung up on the jailbait thread... You wouldn't bring it up if you didn't secretly like it

I understand the younger thing though. I have calmed down a lot over the last few years. Too much other **** to worry about to get my panties in a wad over poor driving. Not that it still doesn't get me in a rage, but not as bad as it used to be.

It always seems that the biggest pussies are the road ragers, I have the worst temper ever and I guess it didn't help that I used to be a juice monkey but if i'm in the fast lane and someone comes behind me I let them pass me, and if I'm in a rush I would expect people letting me pass to. If someone flipped me off be ready to be followed untill you've reach your destination cause I will smash your face into the ground. And if you have a gun you won't be able to pull it out cause ull be knocked out by the time you even think of pulling it out. I say that 99% of the people here are pussies and only have ***** when they are in their cars or Internet not face to face

I've met this guy...you have no reason to be scared NA6C...he's the kind of guy my little brother could punk out.



Just throwing fuel on fires.



Road ragers are ridiculous...and usually the most offensive ones don't get anywhere fast. They spend all that time and effort tailgating, honking, flippin' off, changing lanes, speeding up through 50yd spaces etc...and then they get off 2 whole exits later while they're still in your sight, and catch the red light after the off ramp anyhow as you continue cruising by at 70mph.

What a waste...and it's dangerous.

I've had one guy stop and walk up to my car. He started shouting...looked down at me and must have seen in my face that I was going to let him finish and then be ready to retaliate if he took it up a notch...and just turned on his heel and went back to his car. Didn't hurt my feelings any...he's the one that can't drive for **** or control his temper.


I get mad a lot too...but just when people are driving in a manner that either grossly ignores well known laws that allow traffic to flow (stopping at right turns with protected lanes etc.), or if they are endangering my safety. Sad part is I let more stuff go when I'm by myself...but take it really personal when my family is in the car with me. I have to really remind myself I can't let things escalate....but still honk or flash lights to the real ******** just so my voice is heard...and they don't just keep walking over everyone.

I figured so, big talkers are usually the little guys that are really scared about everything.....

I think we are ignoring the fact that there are two kinds of rage drivers. Offensive and defensive. Offensive drives like **** and gets mad at people slowing them down, so they jump in and out of lanes. The defensive are the ones that get mad at the offensive ones and try to block them in and make them wait... I'm defensive One is the scum of Earth, the other is the defender of all things good.

And then you have those of us who have actually killed little poop stains like yourself because you think it is okay to bully others. It may have been on foreign soil and justified, but if someone like you ever decides to threaten me or those I care about due to your own lack of self-control over getting pissy while driving, then you most likely lack the ability to function as a normal human being and simply don't deserve to exist. One of the main differences between humans and animals is the ability to properly differentiate right from wrong, which one are you?
