As I passed the truck, the said idiot zoomed around me, gave me the finger and the deliberately tried to side swipe me. My car has collision avoidance and the alarms and flashing signals on the windscreen all came up as I slammed on the brakes. Just seeing the red flashing collision warning come up on the windshield pissed me off. I usually just ignore idiots like that, but this deranged fool deliberately tried to hit me with his old rusty van.
As he sped off, I took off down the highway behind him to get his license plate so I could report him. You can report drivers for road rage and the police do not take it lightly. He took off when he realized I was coming behind him. I called OnStar and they patched me into the State Police, who had a fix on my car's location on the highway and I gave them a description of the van and plate number and they told me that they will notify patrol cars ahead and apprehend him if he does not exit before he gets to them.
That's when I realized when I realized that I was going 96 mph down the highway behind this guy. I immediately slowed down and continued along at normal speed. I realized that when adrenaline kicked in, I was blind to the speed I was going, which in itself is scary. It's not like I was going to do something to the guy. I just wanted his plate number. Still, when you think of it, I ended up being a dumb, dangerous driver myself.
