That is the most amazing story and I am so glad "Mr Angry" got cited ............ I hope this guy is dealt with quite severely .............. There just is NO excuse for this kind of behavior!!! Glad he did not get to skate!! (And Bless your wife--I am sure she sees it all!!!)

Where's a cop when you need em!!
Just last week, coming back from a beach walk my wife and I were driving on a road where two lanes merge to one. The car to our right (you merge left) was so insistent on getting in front of the car which we were following that he actually drove in the grass median after his lane ended, bumped the cars' side, angrily got in behind (which put him now directly in front of us) and proceeded to cross double yellows around three cars just to get ahead, nearly causing a head on collision.
My wife asked me to follow the car which was hit, and it just so happened BOTH cars pulled in to our neighborhood.
Well...we did get out at the angry drivers house. The guy said it was no big deal, just a scratch, and to get the hell off the property.
Funny thing ... MY WIFE IS A COP in a neighboring city! Local police were called, the angry driver was cited for reckless endangerment and hit and run. The local cops were not happy that Mr. Angry told my wife off! Even worse for him, he's a friggin Yankee! Trial on November 9th. I can only imagine how the judge will react! How sweet is justice.
FYI...While there is no excuse for cops coming close to pedestrians...I do know if my wife is going to a call she will unbuckle early so she can jump out if needed (she works in a really bad section of town and often chases thugs on foot). She also on occasion will use a cell phone to call a specific team mate for backup if the radio is jammed. I AM NOT EXCUSING innapropriate behavior, but sometimes we dont always know the story. Just sayin'

Umm, it's a joke, not a scheme. It's supposed to be funny. It's not really how I feel. But thanks for all your thoughts!

Well that blinker-blow-up scheme would get rid of most of the seniors, the people who listen to lound music , and the mothers with screaming kids in the rear seats. That would effectively solve our Soscial Security insolvency, hearing loss and over population problems. You might just be able to peddle this idea to the congressional cabal and General Motors.

I think they should have a thing on cars where if someone drives around with their blinker on too long, they blow up.

Why do people who say they are being sarcastic and " tongue in cheek" Need to attack what anyone says on this thread? My opinion shooting a car with a paint ball no matter how provoked is always inappropriate.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal

Does that mean endangering others is OK? Actually there is a law called reckless endangerment. Another name for STUPID!

I drive a motorcycle. I enjoy driving a motorcycle. When clueless idiots do stupid things with their 3 ton iron cages, they put MY LIFE very much at risk, while I wouldn't make much of a dent in their cage. Anything I can do to make them aware they are endangering ME, if not pedestrians, wayward animals and other cars, is justified in my mind. I wouldn't actually shoot any car with a paintball. Maybe a remote controlled joy buzzer buried in their car seat to wake them up would be a better idea.

moonkball.... I am VERY sorry about your son.

I guess we just get very annoyed at clueless idiots that get in a car a DO NOT think about the fact that their actions could cause harm, and we in our own SARCASTIC way are just being cheeky about this. emoticon

Chris: What I am missing is sarcasm over this thread. My son was hit by a car this week while walking in a construction zone. The driver sped away. I have little tolerance for these dumba**es, but splatting them with a paintball aint gonna teach them anything.

These 'guys" got their licenses at 7-11 after taking a driving course at the bumper car track.

So what happens t the cop cars with three or more splashes?

True story: I was running. I politely, if impatiently, waited for the Walk signal and then entered the crosswalk. So did a car, which got close enough he got a hood slap. Then I looked to see it was a local constable of the law. He put down his cell phone (yes he did) but did not have to undo his seatbelt as he wasn't wearing one and he was about to get out of the car to give me some lip.

"Son," I said, because he looked about 16 so I called him Son "Son, I could write you about five tickets here. Crossing the stop line, entering the crosswalk, using your cell phone while driving, no seatbelt, and aggressive driving just by getting out of the car. So unless you want to have this conversation with your desk sargeant, you should sit down, shut up, hang up, back up, and buckle up. 'K?"

"Sorry, sir." And he did!

Good boy.

What kind of crazy a** driver is shooting paint when his two hands should be on the wheel? Seems like the ignorant driver is the one with the paintgun!

I think splattering cars with paint for whatever reason is just a bit beyond the pale.
Sorry we gave up vigilante justice with the old west.
As much as I would like to disturb all those people illegally talking on the phone with their hand up to their ear, I will steer clear of them.... if I am able.

OK well, more than half the cars up here would be splattered with paint. So different colors should mean different things. Blue for pulling out right in front of someone, yellow for driving 25 mph in a 45 mph zone, and red for just being stupid!

My husband is a truck driver and I have put about 3000 miles on our car this summer. I have seen some really dumb moves and he can write about 20 tickets every day. I like the paintball Ideal. Everyone makes a mistake occasionally but some cars just seem to do something right occasionally

How about making a law that you are required to carry a paintball gun while driving? When other drivers do something stupid, splash 'em! If a cop sees a car with 3 splats, it's an automatic $100 dumb*ss ticket!
