Did you mean the old Road Rage thread? Don't get me going on that topic; it doesn't belong in Pet Peeves. It should be on the Hyperventilation thread; drivers in the Boston metro area are just plain M*ssholes! The game is to keep the other driver guessing so that they hesitate long enough for you to get the upper hand.
Don't signal others what you intend to do or they will just cut you off.
Never leave more than one car length between you and the car in front of you.
Purposely drift to the adjacent lane to give yourself a little space and give others the impression that you are drunk or blabbing on the cell phone.
Instead of playing "merge or yield" on the ramps change the game to "chicken" and "floor it" onto the expressway; next time, that guy that was sure he was going to cut you off will switch to the middle lane before the exit ramps come up.
