Unstable people and Road Rage.

I read a story recently about how the bulk of serial road ragers are mentally ill for the most part and I agree. I've been pissed off one the road before but to take that step to side swip of hit someone because of a traffic issue seems immature and just plain stupid.

Yeah they say it's emotionally impaired driving, no different than getting so angry that you cannot control yourself.

I think the immaturity thing is more likely than the instability thing. But clearly, unstable people could be a problem, too. Just not as common, I would think.

Now immaturity, there's lots of that going around. Most of us grow out of it, at least to some degree. Some people don't. I wonder if they're equally immature in social settings?

I have a close friend that is a county sheriff and he said the serial road ragers have a similar profile, always down on thier luck and have great difficulty with real life relationships.

Go back and read my thread. You've implanted what you would like to imagine, but if you read it, it indicates quite another scenario! But I forgive you both, you are republicans! Or do I?

What thread? What are you talking about? This wouldn't be an example of thread rage would it?

Now well over a couple of weeks since I published a thought, and now looking at that response, what do I have to say?

Not much!

Medmec, the botanist, other so called "lawyers" in, or on, line here, (Mshop) respond and whom I anticipate opposite. It's a "no brainier" here on this web site why people like KV are expelled permanently, unlike the constant BHD gets away with the same offense. I wonder where the line is for me?

I came to this forum because I own, and have owned several Mercedes Benz automobiles and I am so far as I can tell, quite well received here. I am also a member of most all the other MB forums, as some of you know as I do post my username as "BusyBenz" also as Salmonella, and Ragtop, and BenzBob!

I'm not altogether certifiable, as I write on my signature. I have 8 years of collage and several certifications, mostly within engineering. I had been a marine surveyor for nine years. Currently I am a caretaker for both my elderly parents here on Cape Cod.....Yes I'm a liberal...and proud of it!
