Yikes on my way home from work there's a 3 lane road (2 lanes westbound) that becomes one lane each way before a stop light. I move over from the left lane to the right lane as it endds and I'm going maybe 15 since cars are stopped in front of me.

This lunatic passes the guy behind me on the right and tried to do the same to me. I did NOT move over because by the time he got to me it was DEFINITELY one lane. There was a stopped car right in front of me where did he want to go ?

So he's cursing up a storm givign me the finger, and lo and behold his door opens! Light ahead of me turns green so I go, he closes the door and is still livid. It was a long line of cars so the light turns red again and he opens the door again and gets out!!

I saw the left turn lane ahead was empty so I slammed on the gas and left him in the dust, standing in the middle of the street. I honked my horn to warn others near the intersection who must've been like WTF, made sure nobody was coming then went stright through the red light from the vacant left turn lane. Not proud of that part but this was a big guy and I'm 6'2" 205 but I don't mess around with potential weapon carrying road rage people in Chester. I turn at the next light, an alternate route and I see him about 8 cars back but then he gave up the "chase" and turn back towards the road we were on. I got home, he didn't hit me (came close though) so there was no reason to leave his vehicle except to start a fight. Unfortunatley PA only has plates in back so I didn't get a license.

I'll try the longer way home from work next time :(

I'd be mad too if I had to drive a PT cruiser but still.....
