Interesting...sounds like in this city one should carry a gun at all times, and not just at home...

Concealed handgun license my friend. Pull that lil' pistola out and nobody will ever flick you off again especially a teenage punk.

You can not legally pull out your pistol at someone that gives you the finger. Geez, I hope YOU don't have a CHL.

I'm joking man relax And yes I do have a CHL and abide by all the rules. I'd never pull unless I had to such as a carjacking, mugging, etc.

People seem to morph into different personalities once behind the wheel.
dang, tell me about it! i think the roadways no more need people inciting motorists for a bad turn than they need motorists who make bad turns. poor diving behavior just seems to spread like wildfire on the roadways.

know this topic has been beaten to death, but just wanted to offer some sarcastic thanks to the ugly cow in the black SUV who blew through the yield sign at sonterra and 281 today and nearly smashed into me, then sped up to try to hit me again AND THEN had the audacity to give me a very improper hand gesture.

In case my 30-second long honk at you did not clue you in....I was very angry at you. Perhaps you may want to brush up on what a yield sign means before squeezing yourself behind that steering wheel again. Anyone who can't comprehend basic traffic signs has no business driving a vehicle -- let alone that tank you were in.

Okay, breathing in and out....and letting it go. We are home and alive and have managed to live through yet another day in this gawd forsaken expletive of a place. Letting it go....letting it go....

Glad you made it home safely! Many, many people in SA have no idea what yield or merge means... or that there is a difference between the two. I lost count of the times we almost got hit from that when we lived there.

I know it's tempting to show them who's boss by not letting the non-yielder blow past you, but it's best to be safe and let these selfish people blast past you while YOU yield to them. Trust me, you don't want to get into a wreck because of them not yielding. Just punch the horn while they past you and hopefully they'll get the hint. A fatal wreck is not worth it!
