Viral road-rage video sparks mob violence in Beijing, revealing deep regional rifts

A road-rage video went viral on Chinese social media last month, showing a motorist from the northeastern province of Dongbei berating an e-bike rider from Beijing, deriding him for being a native-born Beijinger (the cyclist spoke in Beijing dialect) and lording it over him that migrants from outlying provinces are prosperous enough to drive cars while Beijingers are riding e-bikes ("F*ck you Beijingers! ...While us outsiders (外地人) are driving cars, you poor-ass Beijingers are still riding miserable e-bikes."

Sacramento driver throws incredible fit of road rage

A gentleman turned his SUV into a battering ram, repeatedly bashing another car. Eventually exiting his vehicle to climb atop the target of his anger, the rage filled driver slips and is apprehended.

Via CBS:

"The initial call was that someone was behind a driver and upset for some reason after a disturbance on the freeway," said Sgt. Vance Chandler with the Sacramento Police Department.

The suspect ended up on 5th and X streets, where police say he rammed the car he was allegedly following on Business 80. From there, officers say the suspect became fixated on the Honda CR-V.

"This person was in a crisis, obviously," Chandler said.

Police stood back, waiting for the clearly agitated suspect to calm down.

"They were unable to get him to cooperate or speak to them," Chandler added.

The video shows the suspect eventually falling from the top of the CR-V, and officers quickly moving in to detain him.

Officers say they're waiting for the suspect to be medically cleared from the hospital before he's booked into the Sacramento County Jail on charges of vandalism and felony assault.

Upset at being honked at Cop declares horn use "road rage"

I am impressed with this motorcyclist's ability to remain calm, and attempt to reason with this angry police officer!

A motorcyclist was frustrated by having to wait behind a non-moving car at a round-about, so he honked! The driver of the car turned out to be a police officer who claimed his texting-while-driving was in the name of public safety. The cop then proceeded to educate the motorcyclist, evidently honking is "road rage."

Anyone here from Colorado, where the video took place? Is using a horn illegal in Denver? Read the rest
