Good grief.

Given the direction that this country's been headed lately, it would not be surprising if there were more and more road-rage incidents like this--or possibly worse!

Not ratchet enough. In the middle of the Mass Pike or over an EBT card would be needed to elevate. Or if one of the pickups had one of those sped coexist stickers.

By the by, I thought I recognized the filmers voice so I went to her Facebook page and while it turns out it was not her, she did have a RIP link to UHub four hours earlier for the RI car crash. If any of you all ever stepped foot in Hyde Park... you are probably Facebook friends with her.

In my experience, many are tougher than guys 3 times their size.

assuming that the videomaker and the shouter are the same person, it seems that filming was more important than 911-ing?

(Maybe this is an opportunity for Apple. In the next phone, the camera will have a "Call 911!" button, where you can keep filming while the phone automatically dials 99 to alert the cops.)

Not a cop but I'd have to assume having video evidence is handy when prosecuting and charging these dudes? If everyone has phones, one person can video while a second one calls.

Perhaps her smart thingamajig doesn't have the ability to be used as a telephone, or perhaps she's never used it as a telephone before, or perhaps she doesn't know how to dial 9-1-1. I mean, the possibilities are limitless.

that a fist fight would last long enough for cops to be called. The screaming was her most time efficient approach to ending the conflict, unless she had the bravery of the second woman who pulled the guy off.

looked more like a bunch of out-of-shape morons rolling around.

People, just stay in your trucks and move along.

Also, the lady shooting video was the most troubling thing about the entire clip. "Someone call 911"!!! Lady, stop videoing and trying to get on worldstar, then call the police yourself.

mother of gawd.

It does not speak well of modern society that in an emergency people's first instinct now is to film rather than to call 911.

I saw the video and I got down on the carpet and started foam-rolling my calves like nobodies business.

Staying in their truck is why they are out of shape to begin with. Road rage is the only time many drivers get any exercise.

I'd bet my bottom dollar that you wouldn't say that to their faces. I would imagine that they are in better shape than you are.

It would never happen because I wouldn't be in a dust-up with some dumpy loser in hyde park during the middle of the day. It takes a special type of stupid to run your mouth, then get out of a car to "fight" someone in the middle of the road.

And no, they are not in better shape - as evidenced by the sad wrestling match we witnessed in the video.

Again, people just need to drive their cars, shut their mouths, stop trying to be tough guys, and move along.

And neither would I, but Kino seems to think that they are creampuffs whose main form of exercise is walking to and from the fridge.

They may not be perfect specimens, but I still wouldn't be egging them on.

Judging by how things played out on the video, this may have been less road rage and more fight club?

Shoot, I forgot the first rule of fight club.
