Road Rage

Road Rage is defined as one or more of the following behaviors.
  • speeding and aggressive acceleration
  • tailgating
  • cutting others off
  • weaving in and out of traffic
  • forming a "convoy" to block access to a traffic lane
  • sounding the vehicle's horn or flashing lights excessively
  • rude gestures
  • shouting verbal abuse, including threats
  • deliberately hitting another person, vehicle or object with one's own vehicle
  • hitting a person or vehicle with a weapon other than a vehicle e.g. a tire iron, golf club, or baseball bat
  • threatening to use or using a firearm or other deadly weapon
  • pursuing for retaliation or revenge of a perceived slight
  • triggering or exaggerating traffic waves
Editor's Note: We would never accuse Molly of exhibiting Road Rage Behavior (Because we are afraid to). Let's just say that she drives enthusiastically. We do routinely take her to the bumper car ride and let her burn off some of that enthusiasm.
