LA road rage is not something I want ANY parts of. I let those people pass me be without even so much as turning my head. The stew of bad/aggressive/psychotic drivers is too thick - between gang members, drug heads, random Falling Down psychopaths, etc. I'm more than good to let people who have offended me drive by and go on their merry way.
I went to Thousand Oaks to buy a car a few years ago and on the way home I literally saw a body laid out on the 101 after getting into a shootout w/police on the goddam freeway. Took a lot of the shine off of driving my new car home.
