Kicked the Sh*t out a ladys car this morning.

I was riding to work, about to get on the beltway from 290 and I was in the exit lane, and this dumb B*tch on a cell phone started coming in to my lane pretty fast. I kicked the out of her rear door. She jerked back in to her lane, and gave me a dirty glare. I gave her the finger and rode off. Glad I'm not dead. People are stupid.

yeah i was thinking about trying to come up with a "whip like tapping device" that will gently but loudly tap the vehicles body as it increases towards me.

Kicking or hitting things always jerks you around a little. Which unsettles me.

i typically choose to brake and let them in (maybe I get really irritated and even shake my head and throw a "wtf" hand up)...but I get it....2 wrongs make a right. Keep it up....her 3k lb impala will show you how initimidating those steel toed boots really are.

Isn't that what Harley riders have sometimes that long whip that some times has ball bearings on it. I seen some so long that they drag the ground while in motion and would be scared to corner with one.

Harley riders already have that. Safety whip. Leather braided whip with steal end.

I did brake, But i was literally next to her. If she hadn't seen me she would've hit me.

no option to continue braking and moving to the right/left within your lane? No option to accelerate and outmanuever her crappy driving? I see...you only had the one option...kick at her door.

For the record, I didn't post the thread to show off how much of a badass I am. I posted to point out that people are stupid! My first instinct was to brake, and I did.. But she still almost hit me.. So I kicked her. Not to Intimidate her, but to let her know I was there because the Yamaha horn wasn't doin' it. lol

Have you been on 290 lately? There was a wall to my right, no shoulder, along with a 20ft drop. The construction has it screwed up. Continuing braking wasn't really an option with a Tahoe 20 feet behind me.

I have (notice my location)....and I always leave myself an out. Not being a ...if you're gonna commute....dealing with these folks is a daily occurence.

Kicking in doors/mirrors will get you run the f over.
