Road rage

Disgusting but this seems to be becoming a bigger problem in the Madison area. Another reason I don't like driving.

Police: Motorist attacked in road rage incident
Man attacks woman's car as she stops to help, police say
http://www.channel3000.com/news/Police- ... index.html

"Police said Theodore H. Malchert, 40, of Poynette, became angry about the driving of another motorist, followed the car east on U.S. Highway 12, and cut in front of the car deliberately striking the car's front quarter panel. The victim lost control of his car and spun out between Parmenter Street and Airport Road. Police said the victim's car came to rest facing the other direction of traffic.

Malchert drove his car into the victim's car twice more before exiting his car and throwing a cup of coffee against the victim's car, according to police. The victim told police Malchert then forced his car door open and assaulted him.

When a woman stopped to help, Melchert climbed in the roof of her car, pried off a windshield wiper and used it to shatter the driver's side window, according to police. The woman was allegedly showered with broken glass, drove away and notified police."

That woman who stopped to help -- I like her. Not 'like" but like.

Saw an incident on Johnson St. yesterday. Guy was yelling, "Roll down your window!" at a white SUV. Was also crossing the lane markers, thought he was going to hit the other car. No wonder people were passing on the right to get around the idiot. He finally gave up after crossing Pinckney.

Life's too short.

That isn't road rage, that is delusional maniacal behavior! Dude is lucky the other driver wasn't armed.
