Mount your cameras, don't escalate the situation, just get away from the nut, and don't be lazy about filing a complaint with your local PD or highway authority with your video evidence. You live, they get cited, everybody wins. Well, we (motorcyclists) win. The crap drivers lose. As they should.

Good point Bob, were it not for other people coming forward and telling their story / reporting her past behavior, she may have been able to get away on a lesser charge.

Last July, going to my other home in Cold Springs Valley, I saw this on the way there, just after the emergency vehicles got on the scene.  Seems to be a road rage incident, the scumbag still not found.

What we can learn is that when we ride, sometimes we will almost inevitably come onto conflict with another motorist.

We don't know their level of driving expertise, their personal character, their criminal convictiion history etc ...
for all we know they might have just stolen the vehicle they are driving / riding, they might be be high on drugs,
and / or could be in posession of a loaded firearm that they are prepared to use on the first person
that has the audacity to upset them !

My personal advice is to back off, and just let them get on with, it without antognising them further -
they'll probably race off with great bravado, and then take what could otherwise be YOUR place
at the head of the queue for the nearest Accident & Emergency Hospital.

Yes... In my experience dick heads are best steered well clear of and left to their own devices... Discretion is the better part of valour as they say!

I agree... get it on camera, get away ASAP, get it out of your mind, and get ready for the next nutjob.

My helmet cam is ON pretty much whenever I ride.  And I also have dash cams in both my cars.  Now if I could make the helmet turn on automatically with the ignition ON, like the dashcams.  :084:
