    I must admit that I take more than a little pleasure in what I am about to describe.....

    I have a pretty normal city commute to work everyday where I pass at least 3 different lane merges. I believe in sharing the road and being courteous. But it seems at least once a day, I will have someone trying to pass me by going into the merging lane. I shut that sh*t down. It always seems to be either a Prius or a some clown in a entry level BMW....

    In the incident today, I got the guy 2 times. At the first lane merge, I was following the car ahead of me from a safe distance and this guy in a 3 series pulls out and tries to pass me. I lower the boom and he is eating my fumes. I thought, "OK, he learned to play nice".... Next lane merge, again he pulls out again. This time I had lots of room ahead of me.....so I toy with him.... He gets to my door then I match his acceleration, which I thought was surprisingly easy.....

    The merge approaches then I hammer it....again he eats my fumes to accompany his non-diary non-fat vegan latte....

    Anyone else like to shatter BMW and Prius dreams??

    I "GET IT" completely. But I bet that someone chimes in and tells you to "play nice" or to "NOT race" on a public road. But I get it. I always try to be very polite and courteous on the roads but there are many people that are rude and do not play by the rules. So it's nice to be able to nonchalantly adjust their way of treating others;)

    I follow the zipper method.

    But, I also take it fairly easy in my hellcat, who knows who has nothing to loose except to see a "rich guy" get his car hit and be late.

    Par for the course out here. And we get people that use the emergency lane too, in addition to the merge lane...mostly Prius.

    When I was learning to drive (eons ago) my mentor (a close relative) gave me one very valuable lesson: "Never assume the guy on the road has an iota of traffic/ civil sense. Always believe that there is a donkey behind the wheel." Lol.

    This has somehow managed to stick with me through the ages and withstood the test of time. Whenever im stuck in a sticky situation wherein I need to yield, when lanes merge or at the stop sign I eat humble pie and allow the "donkey" to take the first crack.

    Life, but especially cars are too precious to jeopardize in these situations. Lol. Road rage is at an all time high and morons are shooting at motorists for trivial stuff..like overtaking and for driving slow in car pool lanes. It is funny that when I'm driving my truck, they always act polite and back off.

    I would suggest a CCW if you continue to "shut that sh*t down" or "shatter BMW / Prius dreams".

    At least that way, when you meet up with a Cardell Hayes, you will be able to shoot back.

    My work car is a Prius and I have a CCW so if you shoot at me you had better not miss.

    Because they are saving the environment, and you are not.

    T Bone, Not sure where you are from but anywhere around NYC they are famous for stunts like this. Would be at least five people at a time trying this. We have plenty of them up here in Mass. too so I am already ready for them when I drive down there. The funniest stunt I see them try is when I am in Queens and there is a red light and guys accelerate up the parking or bus lane and try to hit the light green at full speed. If anyone is asking to get "T Boned" it is them. Had to say it.:)
