Never had an issue. I'm usually calm, except for some anxiety.

Unless they're driving dangerously... nothing much, even when they are, I'm usually slow to get angry mainly 'cos I'm concentrating on making sure that I'm well away from any stupidity. There're some shite drivers around though.

I do find it kind of entertaining watching people flip out from within the protective bubbles of their cars. Like watching monkeys waving their arms around monkily behind a cage, or a 1.5 kg chihuahua going berserk at the window like it's getting ready to destroy you, and you're lucky there's a barrier in the way. I just just smile and wave obliviously, as that seems to piss them off even more.

RE: How are your road rage management skills?
I'm always calm and collected, even when confronted with otherwise frustrating situations. There's really no reason to get upset. You'll arrive at your destination around the same time, give or take a minute, so why bother freaking out?

I'm not always nice, though. When somebody tailgates me, even though I already drive faster than the traffic flow, I will drop into third and test their reaction time by decelerating with no brake light warning. After doing this twice, the sunroof opens, and I find a use for those pennies in my change compartment.

The things that annoy me are leapfroggers, bumper lickers, and people who insist on passing when you are already going 10 over. It seems to be a significant percentage of drivers who do these things. I usually just ignore it, but every once in a while i block leapfroggers because they need to calm the f down and go the same speed as everybody else. It doesn't help them get where they are going but 2 or 3 minutes faster.

So as long as they do the same speed as you? Ok for you to speed but how dare someone try and go faster? Bitch please...

I'm that annoying pedestrian who will step out into the road that you are about to turn into but have forgotten to signal or indicate (or whichever the word is that Murikans use).

You'll slam on your breaks and think "that was close" and assume I didn't see you.

Then I pause, turn towards you and give you a look that tells you that I damn well did see you and that I also think you're a twat and so does the rest of humanity.

I love those people! They're all so special and squishy in their automobile free life... I just kinda assumed the look was heated jealousy at my climate controlled comfort and leather adorned throne... Except I never forget to signal, even on an otherwise empty road.

So you have pedestrian rage.

I don't generally have road rage, but I do occasionally have road incredulity. This usually manifests on my college campus where there are lots of brightly painted, raised crosswalks lined with flashing lights and flanked with warning signs. It became evident to me that the reason such safety precautions were needed was because of the sheer idiocy of the student body. With their heads bent down, looking at their phones, these darwin award candidates waltz right into the crosswalk without having ever bothered to glance up to make sure that the cars see them and are stopping for them.

Yes, it is my responsibility to yield to the pedestrians. It's true that if I hit you, I'm at fault and I'm going to get a ticket. But you may be in a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
