Victim of road rage - P plated Barina driver.

Just an hour ago I was reversing out of a car park after finishing my grocery shopping for the week. Given I canít see any traffic coming because a van is parked to the left of me, I slowly reverse until I can visibly see before pulling out completely.


I reverse no more than half a metre before having to slam on the anchors. This dickhead in a riced up white Barina with P plates flies past my back bumper at about 60km/h. I'm so pissed at this stage; I decide to give him the bird. He sees it. GOOD. I begin reversing out of the car spot completely. He stops his car and reverses back at me as fast as the shitbox can go in reverse, smoke bellowing everywhere and stopping only a metre shy of my front bar.


I figure he's trying to make a point, so I take the opportunity to get out of my car, march over to him and yell "20 ****ing km/h in parking lots you dipshit, or have you already forgotten the road rules you learnt 3 weeks ago?"

He's fuming at this stage and decides to spit at me. More of a spray rather than a lurgy. Without sounding like the Lord, the wind was with me and blew most of it back in his face and onto his panels.


He then yells at me, "I coulda hit ya ya know". Well duh!!
Thinking he was probably referring to when he was reversing back at me after giving him the bird, my swift reply only seemed to aggravate him even more, "I've got insurance mate, do you? I wouldnít mind the front being resprayed - nasty stone chips"


"**** off four eyes" - It was after that comment I was seriously considering tearing the inklings of bumfluff from his Johnson & Johnson face before smashing his little boney head between the centre pilar and door frame. Snapping the key in the ignition, keeping the rest of the bunch and kicking in a few panels in also came to mind.


Instead I simply walked away Pfffting, got in my car and drove off.

If we had trailer parks in Australia equal to the American standard, he'd be living in one. Total trash and filth. Wasn't worth the effort.


Anyone else had a similar experience?

Re: Victim of road rage - P plated Barina driver.

I would of decked the little shit.

Gave someone a bit last night actually. At the car park outside the movies, the dickhead in his R30 cryline sedan with dodgey spoiler/bodykit and chrome wheels had his stereo up full blast, setting off alarms left right and centre. Probably couldn't hear my call of "good one dickhead' even though everyone else seemed to.

I know I wouldn't have been able to restrain myself in that situation. The moment he spat at me, he'd have been pulled out of the car through the window....

I too have had the same problem a couple of times, except its always a 4WD. But the just waited and let me reverse out. I always let people who cant see come out also. But some people in this world think its all about them!

Re: Victim of road rage - P plated Barina driver.

UNr8D - that little story would have been a whole lot better if you used some damn punctuation!!!! bloody hell man, full stops and commas are free!!! FF's sake use them occasionally!

now back on topic, i see so many people doing bloody stupid illegal stuff on my way to and from work (now unfortunately a pedal-powered trip due to speeding fines :S) that i dont want to bore you all with each one.

the best one though was last thursday at a T interstection on brunswick st (2 lanes each way) in the valley - little red sh!tter with a middle aged man at the helm, indicates to turn left into the bottom of the "T" (which is all well and good) but a merc driver coming the other way, all oiled hair and stuck-up pomp, turns right across both oncoming lanes of traffic (which were full of cars) and nearly cleaned up the poor bugger in the charade - i saw what was about to happen and stopped (to be a better witness) and watched as they both tried to turn into a one lane st at the same time...

the charade driver let the merc one through, i was so hoping the merc guy looked at me, i was going to give him the biggest spray for being rude, inconsiderate and downright f*cking retarded etc etc etc, but his windows were up and he never looked. damn.

Re: Victim of road rage - P plated Barina driver.

i was driving down mitcham rd in victoria last week, there is a train line on there, also keep clear right near the train line, traffic was banked up but started to move so i moved onto the keep clear, then the traffic stopped and the gates started to come down, i wasnt gonna go through especially after what happened in st albens recently, and i couldnt reverse caus traffic had already moved up to the keep clear so i stayed there,

next second a guy walking across the rd put his hands on the bonnet and said "keep clear dick head" my response was "sorry mate, i ****ed up, my bad" he didnt like this for some reason and started walking towards the drivers door so i took my seat belt off and said "dont come near me c**t" so he started to walk away muttering to himself "whre did u get your license from, bloody p platers" so i shouted out the window "oi dickhead, if your so concerned about the road rules why dont you use a pedestrian crossing" he just kept walking and didnt look back!!

was quite proud of my self
