Lucky the white car got knocked sideways before the big one rolled down and nearly squashed it. Hopefully a passenger didn't get hit by the fusillade.

I am starting to feel like the only guy out there without a dashcam.

LOL, I thought it funny after the Russia meteor how everyone in that country has a dash cam because of corrupt cops and accidents liability... My iPhone makes a great dash cam on it's window mount when I am behind an aggressive driver... it's come in handy twice...

Avoiding aggressive drivers is a better tact.
Just sayin....
