So some maniac just tried to run me off the road...
I was coming home and saw this guy in an SUV with a flag on the back window (obviously a freeper) run a red light. It changed a few seconds later so I sped down the road behind him with my brights on - because my horn doesn't work (long story)

So, he goes to turn off - into my neighborhood, no less - and I decide to drive on to the next turn because I don't want this lunatic knowing where I live. As I go around him, he swerves suddenly and violently forcing me to cross over into the oncoming lane to keep from being hit. If there had been traffic on that side, I wouldn't be retelling this story.

Some people are such fucks. Seriously.

3. Yeah I didn't see anything that justified that action.

5. The flag bearing cars are often maniac drivers.
When I read your account of what happened, it reminded me of something that happened to me last year. I was driving down the road one day and there was a car stopped on a side road as if they were getting ready to enter the main road. The dude was looking right at me and pulled out just as I got there. If I wasn't a speed limit follower, I would have been in a head on collision that day. I remember seeing the flag suddenly move when he jumped out in front of me. I was so lucky no car was coming the other way.
