Drivers in Florida are belligerently stupid. You have the jacked up pickup trucks with rebel flags, swerving between lanes, their shaved head drivers bright red and bouncing up and down out of anger. Then you have the old people that drive 20 below in the passing lane because they have to turn left in the next county. Then you have that old person’s grand kid who does the same thing because he’s high on Oxycontin and doesn’t know the difference between passing lanes and traveling lanes. It’s enough to make you fucking crazy.
As a general rule of thumb, if someone points a gun at you, they have the right-of-way. If you see a shootout taking place behind you, MOVE OVER and let them pass. Try not to get shot. Full Story »

After a man yelled at him in a Publix parking lot, a 70-year-old suburban Tequesta man is accused of confronting him in the check-out line and lifting his shirt to show his gun.
Tequesta police arrested Lazare Cohen on Thursday on charges of improper exhibit of a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a police report said. During a brief court hearing on Friday, a judge set his bond at $3,000. He remained in jail as of Friday afternoon.

HIALEAH, FL – A man caught on cellphone video fighting with another driver in the middle of a busy Hialeah roadway, Friday evening, is facing a serious charge for the road rage incident, but he said there’s more to the story than the footage suggests.
Meanwhile, the other man involved in the skirmish said he merely acted out of fear for his life.
According to Hialeah Police, the incident took place along the 1200 block of 49th Street, at around 6 p.m.
The cellphone video shows 24-year-old Hector Herrera striking 50-year-old Jairo Linarte with a baseball bat. Both men are then seen grappling for the bat, and then Linarte is seen grabbing it from Herrera’s hands.
The men continued to exchange blows as they moved across traffic lanes, causing motorists to swerve in order to avoid hitting them.
In the end, Herrera would be charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
The 24-year-old, however, said the charge does not reflect what happened. “I just want to say that I am not an aggressive person,” he said. “My intention was not to hit him with the bat or nothing like that.” Full Story »
TAMPA (FOX 13) – More people are using guns to solve disagreements on the road, and more of those incidents happen in Florida than any other state, according to a new study.
The Trace, an independent nonprofit, news organization reviewed data collected by the Gun Violence Archive between 2014 and 2016. The study found the number of road rage cases reported climbed nationwide with more cases reported in Florida than any other state. The numbers outpaced California and Texas. Road rage assault reports more than doubled in Florida during the same time period.
Law enforcement agencies have been taking steps to improve safety on Florida roadways through safety campaigns and ticketing blitzes. The efforts target aggressive driving before aggressive driving leads to violence.
More road rage gun violence in Florida than any other state, new study says

In May 2016, a brawl on the road between bikers and an an SUV driver ended with a motorcyclist shot.

OCALA – An 18-year-old Florida Man said he backed his Ford F-150 onto a Toyota Camry on Wednesday afternoon following a road rage incident in order to protect his girlfriend and an 11-month-old who was in the pickup truck, police said.
According to an arrest affidavit, Adalberto Aponte, 53, said he got into a verbal disturbance that ended when Zach Waring placed his pickup truck into reverse and backed up onto Aponte’s Camry.
Waring told police that Aponte had been driving recklessly since he appeared behind Waring’s truck. Waring said Aponte almost caused multiple crashes, and when he reached a red light at the intersection of Southwest 42nd Street and Southwest 27th Avenue, Aponte got out of his Camry, walked directly to Waring’s open driver’s window and “began to strike him in the face through the window multiple times,” police said.
The victim’s girlfriend yelled that there was a gun in the truck when Waring was unable to stop Aponte from punching him, a report states. There wasn’t a gun in the pickup truck, police said.
According to the report, Aponte said, “I’ll show you a real gun.” Full Story »
Uttering her contempt by grabbing her breasts and throwing her middle fingers in the air, this Florida woman performs her ritual road-rage dance in front of this dash cam:
Her male counterpart rammed into their vehicle while this white trash yee-haw redneck slut steps out to do her silly taunting. She also punched the victim’s side mirror and spat on the car.
Our graceful creature uttered to our camera-wielding victims, “I’ll sue you for taking my mother-f***in’ picture, hoe.” Thank you Florida education system, for producing humans with such eloquent lyrics.
I’m just surprised nobody got shot. Florida is number one in the country for gun ownership, not even per capita, but the highest number of guns period, even higher than Texas. This glorious “gunshine state” also boasts the lowest funding in the nation for mental health care. So when you do the math, you will find that Florida contains a bunch of insane people running around with guns.
And of course these uneducated monkeys are driving a gigantic gas-guzzling ‘Murica vehicle, because people in Florida are useless consumers who have no thoughts of their own.
Reinforcing the “white people can’t dance” stereotype, here is a lovely screenshot of the action:Dancing Florida Woman utters her contempt by making a fool of herself
