Angry Road Rage.... to me today!! What should i do?



I'm driving home stopped waiting to make a right turn on Weston Rd. I swear Weston north of steeles is really busy during rush hours and lunch time. Some guy behind me was on the horn and wouldn't let up. I didn't pay attention & i didn't care. I get to the next light and this guy pulls up beside me. He rolled down the window and started yelling at me. I noticed it was an old man (60ish) so i told him to f-off and i rolled up my window. All of a sudden he turns his wheel and starts driving into my car. I couldn't believe he was trying to smash my car. I freaked! I let him drive infront of me so he wouldn't be able to clip my car. Next thing i know we're stopped at weston & 7. Buddy gets out & tries to attack me. WTF!! I swear i almost killed him. I only pushed him away and then manuvered my car through traffic so he wouldn't be able come near my car with his van. The only reason i didn't deck him is because he was an older man. I'm a tough girl and i can defend myself.

Should i have hit him back anyways? Should i call the cops?

BTW- i know this may sound bad but i'm really pissed at myself that i didn't fight back. I'm not good at sitting back and being the bigger person. If someone tries to hurt me physically for no reason i make sure i hurt them twice as hard!

I think that you did the right thing by not beating him. At the end of the day, it would probably turn against you and you would be charged...

Next time, just take the license plate down and let the cops know... I am sure that if you tell them the situation, they can do something, but then again I am not sure what they do in this situation. Good thing he did not hit your car!

you did the right thing by not taking the argument any further, but

do you know why he was so angry?
somebody pulled a stunt on me like that last week, almost punched a hole through my forehead because i cut them off.
I definately didn't cut them off to my knowledge.
He said i didn't signal, yet i know i did, i always do.
i then realized my rear right turn blinker wasn't comming on at all!
I fixed it right there on the spot, one of the contacts wasn't touching properly.
the guy was thankfully very understanding and drove off without turning my head into hamburger.

You did the right thing not fighting back. There's tons of crazy out there, they will even start a fight just because you have your Xenon lights on. Yeah, it happened to me, I just keep my calm and show them what a High beam would look like on my car, and they go, aaahhh oooohhhh.

Maybe he just took adventage of being in conflict with a lil sweet girl so he knew that u would do nothing hehe. Like crusher said they are so many patinets out there so just ignore them .If they start beating You and gets worse then get a place no.

It's not a bad Idea to have tinted windows so he does not see who is in. That's how mafia tints they black limos so it's kinda tough to go and do anything.

Not trying to be sexist (cause I bet you coulda kicked his ass) but if I were you I would have called the cops and reported his plate and start crying on the phone. Act like a girl who just about got beat up by some huge feaky old man. I bet the cops would give the guy a real hard time cause they'll feel sorry for ya.
