I'd challenge you to cite a specific statute that directly addresses 'road rage' as a crime and not some other previously existing law.

I am sure you are used to it by now, but that would be annoying to have to look down and make sure your in the correct MPH range, constantly having to convert. Bet it feels cool to be going 100 in a 60 tho

Hah, I can do the conversion pretty easily. KMH / 5 x 3 = ~MPH. It isn't exact but it gives me a rough idea of where I need to be. It just sucks when you have to do that math before going into a tight curve with a speed warning sign 100 feet before the corner entrance.

Also KPH isnt all that hard to convert. I have used it a few times to mess with police

"Sir do you know how fast you were going?"
"eh, about 105"
"what?"
"105 kph"
"do you know how fast you were going in MILES PER HOUR?"

Forget the speedo, just focus on the gear/engine note and of course the current size of your .

There are other ways besides your speedo they can use to calculate your speed. If they really wanted to.

Reporting road rage

"Texas doesn't have a law against "road rage" per se, but most acts of aggressive driving are already moving violations. Of course, physical attacks against other drivers are also covered under existing laws against assault. To report road rage and/or aggressive driving, the Texas Department of Transportation website recommends calling 911 if you feel your safety is being threatened by an aggressive driver. You can also call your local police department to report people who are driving erratically. Itís important to report road rage on Texas highways-your phone call could save someoneís life!"

been there done that, got a ticket and went and had it dismissed. cops don't need to know where I was comming from or where I am going. same as if I asked what hand you jack off with in the shower, the correct answer is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS
