You see a ramming, I see a guy coasting up to stop at the door and old mate in the car attempting to door him and piling out with a knife. I have always thought that giving drivers a piece of your mind is a waste of time, might make you feel better but doesn't change the behaviour of the driver one bit, and this instance shows us how it can turn very nasty very quickly. Australia is changing, we see more use of very harmful recreational drugs and if someone is driving like an A-hole you should consider that their judgement might be impaired. If drivers are more apt to escalate to real violence, as seems to be happening, then maybe it is wise to not go chasing opportunities to get into a knuckle on with drivers.
