    If you have been wronged on the roads...

    do you react in any way here or is it best or just count your blessings that you did not get hurt.

    The missus admonished me for giving a guy a dirty stare for cutting me up.

    Hell yes I do!! Tell it like it is!! Not trying to create marital strife here but, give her one too.. Your poll choices are kind of limited though I think there is something between a finger and no reaction at all depending on the seriousness of the offense, which is where my vote lies. I also think there is something over that as well..

    I just beep the horn a lot and give them the bird.

    It doesn't make any difference, but it makes me feel better.

    Or you can just go crazy, like i have done in the past when a car cut across the road in front of me when i was doing about 90 and nearly hit him. I couldnt believe the fucker cut in front of me like that when there was no traffic..

    I wasnt havin it..

    I turned my bike around and went after them. Pulled in front of them 3 times before i got into a position where they couldnt pull around me.. I went to the window and started screaming at the little bastards and reaching in to grab the drivers.... throat, shirt, not sure, while they were very apologetic and began rolling up the window.

    I then grabbed the top of the window and just kind of shattered it so that I could thoroughly continue my rant..

    the police showed up with in about 30 seconds as it was directly across from a police station. The passengers of the car explained what happened , then I (this is where speaking Thai well can be very useful) explained what happened.. They (police) said i had to pay for the window.

    "Glad to. How much"

    The owner of the car said it would be 3000 baht.

    "Okay, pai ATM"

    I got 2000
    "Here ya go"

    Then the guy starts talking shit and the other passengers are talking shit.. Then I reminded them, and the police, that they nearly killed me by acting like idiots..
    The police just said OK 2000 is enough, be on your way..

    It might have been a bit overboard, but I bet all the people in that car will think again before cutting somebody off again.. It might be a crazed fed up farang..

    Several years ago, I did all sorts of things, from flipping them the bird to throwing fruits and vegetables at them, to laying on the horn and yelling to trying to run them off the road. I found out that they do not respond well to having a pomello or a tomato bounced off their car . I was almost having a daily road rage incident and it was stressing me out

    It was back then that I decided that I was not going to respond. It will never change and they are too thick to get it. I do not work and I am never in a hurry, so I just let them drive like idiots. Now me and the wife just laugh about it and keep driving. I can't remember the last time I lost my temper about it. the secret to getting them back is to drive slow like a senior citizen. (sorry to offend you if you are a senior )

    If you're going to react best to stay off the road...otoh an egg on the windscreen is a bugger to remove and may, just may remind the retard that he's a retard.

    I recently commented on here that the 300 odd who died over new year was a low figure, because if had had a gun I would have killed more.

    Let me elaborate...

    I ride a sportsbike and that means occassionaly I will expect to use the whole left hand lane of the road. I wont ride in the small lane on the left divided off foe mopeds and bicycles.

    The cnuts I want to shoot dead are those fcukers who are in the process of overtaking slower moving traffic coming towards me in the opposite direction.
    Now when you pull out you are supposed to look ahead and see if the opposite lane is free and unoccupied so you can complete your manouver.
    Most of the time some selfish cnut in a puckup will see you coming in the other direction and start flashing his lights. This action, I presume is to say "get out of my way" now they dont decelerate and "drop back in to the left" these cnuts just keep coming towards you. I might be doing over a hundred and have a couple of seconds to hit the brakes and move out of the way.

    This is not acceptable behavior to Spin, if i had a gattling gun attatched to the front of my bike i would blow these cnuts into the next life with glee.
    Those bastards are coming back as tampons anyway

    Oh, I almost forgot, any farang who wants to pipe up "but your a guest here and should behave accordingly" guess what?

    You can lick the sweat off my balls!

    Yes these fokers piss me right off I have turned around and follow a few for a few KLM waiting for them to stop so I can vent some anger at them but I calm down after a couple of KLM and turn back around.
    I have thought about tring to mount something that flicks little ball bearings out the right hand side and cracks or smashes their front windscreen

    Encourage them into a new paint job by carrying a paint stripper spray, just one quick puff and they'll be the envy of the neighbourhood.

    I was driving the other day when a boy racer and his slutty looking girlfriend cut me up. I pulled up beside him gave him a mouthful, he looked back and gave me the wanker sign to which he and slutty girlfriend found quite amusing, I pointed at him girlfriend and said i would rather have a wank than do her. he seemed quite miffed then.

    I normally keep my cool in the car but people blinding me with their full beams make my blood boil!

    Chitown, why do you have a link to teakdoor on teakdoor?

    Not your country - just ignore them or you could end up seriously injured or worse.

    Not worth the risk.

    Come on Scamp and there's no risk in some twit doing something incredibly stupid on the road that puts you and your family's life in danger?? Where's the difference???

    And so just because it's not my country one should accept that ignorance willingly. By that definition it's ok for one of them to molest your child then too right? Because it's not our country....

    I've calmed down somewhat nowadays as the daughter started mimicking my finger waving and verbal barrage that used to accompany it.

    Many moons ago in Khon Kaen a useless woman driver (I suppose useless is actually redundant in that phrase) driving a BMW - 5 decided to cross 3 lanes without looking and drove me into the central reservation. Once I got back on the road I caught up with her at the lights and knocked on her window. She smiled at me. I know it's the Thai way of saying sorry but somehow it didn't sit right with me and I let out a stream of abuse in Tinglish - "fukin mai mee fukin samong ya fukin ****. Fukin samong kwai bitch" or words to that effect.

    Fukin buffalo then proceeded to try and run me down through the streets until I was able to ride onto to the pavement. Feisty! Nice!

    Anyway now, as we have blacked out windows, I only blast the horn as a sign of my displeasure and as a valve for my blood pressure.
