Road Rage: Hit and Run: Taxi Vs Punk

Posted by Ken Skaggs On April - 19 - 2012 2 COMMENTS

It started out as a typical day- twelve hours at the wheel of a Yellow Cab in Chicago. I leased it for twenty-four hours, but I usually worked about twelve. I was getting tired and heading in the general direction of home. That was my system- once I reached my quota (about $150 or more), I would head toward home, but if someone flagged me down, I’d take the fare.

Dateline: Chicago, March 5th, 2011. I was northbound on Pulaski Road approaching Milwaukee Avenue. As I stopped for the red light, a green car that was parked tried to pull out into the traffic lane, in front of the red car that was in front of me. The car in front of me did not want to let him in, so he blasted his horn for about a solid twenty-seconds. I didn’t see what the big deal was because he had to stop for the red light anyway. What’s the difference if he has to stop a few feet sooner? Read the rest of this entry »

I had two crazy uncles who taught me that when someone gives you the finger, you’re supposed to cut them off, get out of your car and beat the crap out of them and their car with a tire-iron. Of course I never did that though. They did, but I knew better. Read the rest of this entry »

In the past (almost) ten years that I have been writing for 10-4 Magazine, I’ve seen plenty of surveys and reports about aggressive driving and road rage. I recently came across this older report which was, in my opinion, the single best study on road rage ever put together.

Posted by Ken Skaggs On November - 19 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

Did you ever see a crazy driver and wish you could just snatch them out of their car and shake them? I have. Did you ever see another driver do something stupid and then flip you “the bird” as if it were your fault? I have. Do you know one of these drivers and wonder how they survive every day? Me too. Don’t you wish you could do something about it? I sure do.
