A cultured fellow slammed into the back of my motor at a roundabout. He was so enraged by the incident, dashed home to smash his headlights in. Before alerting the insurance company.

In supermarket car park they though i had exited a car parking space a bit quick( I am assuming that was what it was a about ) it was a car with a man and woman in it the woman was driving she followed me out of the car park roaring, shouting, screaming I could see her in my rear view mirror her male companion looked terrified. I pulled over she went to park in front of me but spotted a garda car near by and drove off at an almighty speed still screaming.

A very frightening incident.

I had another minor incident with a loon who did not want anyone to park in the parking bays either side of his car.

Some lad in a shítbucket of a car broke a red and the girl I was with at the time beeped him as he cut the corner very, very tight as she was moving forward on green.
He called her a cúnt and told her to fcuk off and spat out the window, either thinking he'd get away with it or didn't see me.
As he broker the read the lane he moved into was backed up so I walked around the car to him.
He got out acting the big man, that didn't last long. His buddy never moved from the passenger seat.

Thankfully the car behind saw it all too, said she'd confirm what happened if I wanted to call the police.
Reported it to them to save my own back but never heard any more of it, more out of the fact I'd given him a dig or two.

A guy stopped at a roundabout for a long time, beeped the horn and could see the seatbelt coming off and him getting out of the car. He was not even 5 foot and I couldn't stop laughing and told him to get back in the car before I clipped him around the ear.

Ex of mine reached over and hit the horn while I was trying to deal with a situation. Heated row was had.

Aviate
Navigate
Communicate

Communicate comes last, I was trying to find a gap, had no time for beeping.

Two cars racing each other on the motorway trying to get the upper hand, over taking and cutting each other off. I initially thought it was two people who knew each other messing but then it clearly started to get more aggressive and one did a manoeuvre that almost resulted in the other car crashing into the back a lorry. It ended at that point. I guess the near miss and seriousness of it sunk in.

As I cycle I certainly have. Pretty common for drivers to try and knock you down and close pass. They probably don't even register it as road rage or dangerous.
