Just had an encounter with a little man in a big truck.

There I was, sitting at the red light, getting ready to go right, but I wasn't quite comfortable with the gap in traffic ahead of me. This guy in a giant pickup truck got as close as he physically could behind me without actually hitting me, and blared his horn. I responded with a one finger salute, and in that moment, I saw a gap large enough for me to take. I took it, and he followed right behind me. He then got in the next lane over, passed me on the left, and cut me off with mere inches to spare. So now there I am, having been insulted, threatened, and nearly killed.

Before I tell you guys what happened next, what would y'all do?

Update: You guys are all smarter than me. It pains me to say that. Because what I did was, I bypassed my destination to follow him to the next stoplight, pulled up alongside of him, and told him if he wanted to kill me, he should get out of his truck and do it properly.

He declined.

This could be a nut with a gun. Nothing.

Dont argue with a nut job driving a lorry

Let him get ahead of you, not worth risking your vehicle or yourself. Not worth risking other drivers on the road either if it escalates. Then you're a problem too.
