Road Rage Incident In Salisbury

Comment: At 5:38 tonight I was involved in an attempted assault during a road rage incident. As I was clearing the intersection heading to the mall and a man in a black Acura/Accord was blowing his horn at me. He then left his lane, pulled beside me and began threatening me with physical violence. I called the police but he abandoned his pursuit of me before they could arrive. Please be alert for those in the community that are not mentally prepared to be a part of society.

  1. Wow! Maybe you cut him off! I’ve seen so many dumb drivers lately! I doubt he pulled up beside you for no reason at all.

    1. I am the original poster and I haven’t been back for a couple days. I was turning left into the mall from the other direction when the traffic stopped at the entrance. I was forced to slow down and wait for the traffic funnel to clear before I could clear the intersection, I was not the only one. This young man was revving his engine, lurching forward and blowing his horn. He was eager to get up the road but I had no choice. The light was green when I entered the intersection and by the time I had cleared it the other lane was green. I hope this makes sense and there was no rush on my part as I had all night to do what I needed to do. Thank you for the reply.

      1. Original poster here. He was a white male, 25-30 years old, short hair, glasses and appeared to be thin from what I could tell from what I could see of him.

  2. Folks remember this is a two way street…if you are behind the wheel don’t be texting on your cell phones! Be looking at the traffic lights so you can move promptly once the light changes color for your direction of travel. Talking or texting on your phone while operating a motor vehicle is just as illegal as road rage!

  3. While reading this post, I thought what a great job of wording reference this bad experience. Then I go on to read the two comments that turn the post around to make the victim the assailant or aggressor. In my humble opinion the writer was likely the victim due to the calm manner the post was written. The two that fired back lambasting the victim are subject to go postal at any moment, giving the manner they displayed in their remarks. I’m glad the writer wasn’t victimized any more, be careful out there among this declining society.

      1. Your doubts are incorrect, I assure you. I do not feel the 2 that responded unfavorably were out of line or insulting me at all, just stating their opinions, as you are. Have a nice day.

  4. Just because a person > I am NOT accusing the writer of this< was using a phone, of tuning the radio, or simply scratching his ass, is NO reason to threaten violence. Rage does not belong on our streets and highways.

    1. Original poster here. As I replied to the first person that responded, I was stuck in the intersection by a clog of traffic entering the mall. I did not enter the intersection on a yellow or red light, but I was still blocking the right lane after the light turned green. This seems to be a problem around heavy traffic times heading into the mall.

  5. The police could not make it to you in time if they were out back at Sears (not a jab at police). If you don’t have fire power, keep a equalizer with you at all times. The idiot that comes at you will have something.

  7. 7:53….where did anyone lambast the writer of the article? You mean simply stating a well known fact means you are ripping someone a new one??? If the writer feels “victimized” over the comments posted here….they need to find a “shrink” and a “safe space” cause life is going to gobble them up! I don’t see anything offensive…not even 10:51, 6:26 or 3:54 although it is funny. Lighten up folks!

      2. Your an asshole. The person said they weren’t the same person and you still say they are. Do you know more than they do. Can you read minds or see through the cable lines. What does it have to do with the person reporting road rage. Some dude just lost his son to road rage and this could have been the same. Grow up and get over yourself dude. Your comments belong on assboros site not this one. Do us all a favor and keep your pissy comments to yourself.

    1. Original poster here. I asked law enforcement to do their jobs, nothing more. I was not hiding, nor am I unable to protect myself. I have the ability to deal with this situation but I am unwilling to engage in a situation that could end up with both of us in the hospital or jail. I am always armed and I am willing to use it if the situation is not manageable in any other way. This was not the case. If, in your mind, my not confronting and injuring this young man makes me a bitch then so be it.

  8. These comments are the reason I glance at blogs. I guess some people are serious, but I read them for a laugh. I love our president, but find him entertaining also. Why not, George Carlin has pasted and humor is suppose to be good for you. I realize what I find amusing, others don’t.
