Road Rage “Crazy”


I’m hooked on those you tube Road Rage Videos. Most of the images are caught on dash cam. The details on some of these are extremely sharp with some of the cameras allowing the driver to capture clear images of the license plates .

What I find fascinating is a lot of the owners of these dash cams are often in the wrong. Giving chase, blocking the other vehicles and putting and  themselves and their passengers in harms way.

The testosterone level is often beyond a million plus. With men and women engaging in reckless violent behavior.    Most acts are unintentional, its a momentary oops, with the driver in the other car overreacting.  One man attacked the car behind him with a baseball bat breaking the windows with a family inside the car BECAUSE he believed the car behind him was following him was following to closely in a 15 mph zone.

 

My advice is to ignore your ego. Turn around and drive in another direction. If they follow you ,call the police. If the traffic comes to a stop, stay in you car. Do not speak. We don’t know his state of mind of if he is carrying any weapons. At the end of the day. Your ego will be fine and you will live another day

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
