It's so frustrating that our lives are at the hands of people who
massively overestimate their ability to drive even to the complete
minimum standard (safety), & how little we can get through to people
like that, as they immediately go on the attack when they're
'threatened'. They just don't have any empathy.
can emphasise here, glad you managed to put some distance between you and them.
Had an incident similar to this a week or so ago, gave him a knock on the bonnet to wake him up at the lights as he didn't seem to react to anything (including other cars), he gets incredibly arrogant and aggressive. From this point I decide to take another route to avoid him doing something silly, but he follows and throws a full 2L bottle at me (was fine, anticipated it when i saw him in my peripheral)
It's irritating because unless you spend a few hundred pounds on equipment to cover yourself for even a chance at prosecution, you're just at the mercy of drivers getting out the right side of bed
