Exclamation BMW vs BMW! Two BMW Drivers In A Wild Road Rage Incident.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Wow this is ridiculously insane especially for the driver in the 335i sedan(Nice choice in wheels & exhaust by the way) but come on, he has a scared little girl in the car screaming and he's carrying on like this. Not to mention the other lives that were put in danger and the innocent Mercedes and Prius owners who's cars were damaged when they had nothing to do with it. Governments need to take a serious stance on Road Rage incidents and offenders. Enough with these slaps on the wrist. Let's start imposing lengthy jail sentences, suspending drivers licenses for 12 months or more and start impounding cars.

I'm curious to know what happened for this to escalate to this level of insanity



The guy in the 335i Sedan is beyond Angry! He kept his foot on the accelerator after he tried to run over and hit the guy driving the 328i hardtop convertible. If I was the owner of the E-Class convertible, I'd be livid!

I'm also curious as to what the Mercedes hit afterwards and why?

That was horrifying to watch. I can't even imagine what the @#$% was going on then, must've been even scarier in person.

I never hope to go through something like this or seen this happen IRL.

Stay safe everyone, be careful.

It happened in London. Who cares? They all drive on the wrong side of the road anyway.

Yeah admittedly that's how we view things looking west across the pond, who really cares...

And us Yanks thought "road rage" was just an American phenomenon...

Road rage is considered a Hate Crime in America.

That one was actually mild in some respects, some have turned in to full blown fights or people pull baseball bats etc.

The sense of entitlement can get crazy. I'd don't think you'd see that type of thing in Texas. :0

Maybe most missed it but the black car owner (seemed to) take his shirt off, open or try to open the driver door of the white car and if not actually make contact (hard to tell) at least seemingly attack the driver of the white car (first 10 seconds). Not everyplace but most places in the US, based on the size of the male, the shirt off (aggressive), assault or attempt, if the driver of the white car felt his life was in eminent danger (couldn't drive off because the cars were entangled, a couple warning shots into the chest could have happened and it's likely no charges would be filed (especially since he was with his child). In London, guns are illegal so a) people get shot less which is a good thing, but b) strong arm tactics prevail.

I just saw another video of a lambo racing down a street and some guy goes out in the street with a reasonably sized rock (maybe as large as a lemon), and yells at the lambo passenger, "keep racing, I dare you". The lambo driver/passenger go forward to "get out of there" and they guy throws the rock, hits the car but luckily not the rock.

In some states this is assault with a deadly weapon (could have hit the passenger with the window down) and although usually not tacked on, malicious mischief of which both in this case are felonies (pleading down from assault to malicious mischief would be realistic with a good lawyer, and maybe less, but probably at a cost of $3000-5000). the lambo, racing down the street... could possibly be cited to for negligent but a good lawyer ($400) could reduce that to exhibition of speed or speeding of which both are driving infractions. Entitlement (of both btw)

just some thoughts.
