Yesterday, I went to jump start my wife's car, her battery was dead at a small strip mall 10 miles away. I was in the left lane of a 3 lane road doing the speed limit and when traffic slowed in the middle lane, a car (without directionals) darted in front of me, causing me and cars behind me to check up.
The passenger started flipping me off when I shook my head toward them as we pulled to a red light. Both driver and passenger were flipping me the bird and shouting something that I couldn't hear with my windows up.
When the light changed, they sat there for nearly 10 seconds causing the cars behind me to honk and I also hit my horn, finally they moved and switched back to the center lane and slowed. As I passed them, the driver through something at my passenger side which pinged off either my passenger front or rear window, I could not look, I was driving and traffic was heavy.
At that point I took my iPhone out and put it in the video mode to try and catch their license plate, especially if damage was done to my car. I could not recall the aggressive drive number (a three digit number) to call the police, but finally I got behind them and as I drove aimed my phone to capture their plate.
As I lagged behind them, me now in the center lane, them in the left - they slowed to my speed, about 40mph and the drive threw a large cup of coffee out the window, splashing on my and coating my car.
I have put a short video (sorry for the low res version) but I have it in HD, showing the plate, the car, the driver and passenger and perfect shots of the large cup thrown at me.What should I do next? I want opinions. I'm ready to hang the dirtbag, go to the police, hope that besides my very good evidence, I hope he has a record of aggressive or reckless driving and road rage. I'll gladly go to court, but my wife is afraid that he could cause damage to our home or cars after getting our address from public records.
My point is IF IT WERE A GUN and not a large cup of coffee, then I likely would be dead and my iPhone would have been found on the floor of my crashed car with my brains all over it.Road rage 5-1-13
FEED BACK PLEASE - I want to act on this tomorrow, the first chance I have to get to the police station in that township.
