i just saw the closed thread about road rage. i live in the same general area as elizabeth/elaine.
about 6 weeks ago, my wife was driving home on evening commute across the bridge. she checked her mirrors, signalled, and changed lanes. then she heard honking. to her surprise, a late-model black BMW sedan filled her rearview mirror.
she doesn't know if she inadvertently cut him off (blind spot), if he was doing 90 across the bridge and she didn't notice him in her immediate area, or if he was behind her and moved to pass before she did.
my wife is not an ignorant driver, nor is she malicious. why risk your property and your health on a drive home?
so the story goes that at the next opportunity, this guy cut back in front of her and slammed on the brakes in the middle of the bridge, which she anticipated. so he speeds off. she catches up to him at 35th and fauntleroy and is not happy about the prospect of seeing this guy again. he starts flipping her off - again - then crosses two lanes of traffic once the light turns green just to tailgate her and begin the road-raging/menacing again.
so she whips a hard right into taco time/starbucks and locks the doors, preparing to lay on the horn, call police, attract attention, etc., thinking he might follow her. she thought he was attempting the avalon entrance for that confrontation, but may have been foiled by traffic turning in/out, so he sped off westbound on avalon and toward the junction.
i urged her to file a police report to get it on record, but she refused. and no plate nummbers. (and if i had them, i wouldn't attempt to post them.)
anyone else encounter this guy?
