Hey all, I have a UHF radio in my vehicle that is currently set to listen to a number of police radios - very entertaining stuff. Keeps me sane for the 3 hour daily commute between office and home. Dont worry, it is not illegal to listen. But, what I do hear alot about is road rage and this morning there was an interesting scenario between a Doctor and a motorcyclist. Road Rage. Bike Licensed xxxxx - police are looking for you. So, this leads me to something of interest. When we ride, we ride in "survival mode" and when we have a near miss, we get kind of upset about it - agression is sometimes the response. For instance, car pulls infront of you and you somehow manage to get around the car and live to ride another day. Car driver, after almost killing you, abuses you and gives you the bird for their mistake. So, what do we do, we get angry. We confront the driver, have a few words and maybe hit their wondow or door, etc.... Given this type of situaton, is the rage not justifiable? First we are almost killed and then we are verbally and emotionally abused by someone that was at fault. As such, is that not a justifiable and equivalent response? If someone attacks us with a knife and we defend ourselves and accidently cause this person to die in the process of self defence - this is then self defence and no charges laid. So, are we not talking about the same thing? Yes, this is an extreme case, but, is our rage that did not harm the person causing said rage then not justifiable? Just thinking out load.
