    Alasdair got stung by road rage
    Alasdair just called me to tell me what happenned to him on the way to his mum's this evening.

    Alasdair did a zip merge and pissed off someone who obviously didn't note the rules about zip merges changing a while back. This guy speeds off ahead and pulls over in a side street. At the next intersection, ths guy comes bolting out of the side street and laying into Alasdair with a hammer, smashing the drivers side window and nearly breaking Alasdair's arm. With a hammer. What a psycho!

    Then, to top it off.. no-one helped him. No-one asked if he needed a hand (or an ambulance). No-one wrote down the number plate or offered to be a witness. This is in peak hour traffic on Marion road. This guy has beaten up a stranger with a hammer on a main road in peak hour traffic and he has got away with it.

    How fucked up is this world?

    ps. Oh yeah. Don't forget he is driving my car.. so I now own two cars with smashed windows. :(

    how psycho.
    erm... but what's a "zip merge"? 's that like merging with the assistance of a zip gun... like they do in L.A?
     
    When two lanes merge into one, the vehicle whose nose is ahead gets priority, no matter which lane is ending. What a total psycho! I would definitely be calling the cops on his arse if I witnessed that. -Tim

    Maybe they'd all had sex with him...

    Okay, yes, you're right, it's fucked up. Seen it happen before, and it's always fucked up.
     
    That's fucked up! I've been lucky as far as road rage goes as of late.
