Under some circumstances, the rager is actually the total dick; the aggressive driver. When someone nearly kills you with some sort of punk ass reckless driving move, your rage should NOT be coined "road rage," just as your rage at someone pointing a gun at you wouldn't be coined such or considered abnormal.
Max: "I hear you dude, its like the asshole pointed a gun at your kids heads and was pulling the trigger. He could have killed you all. I would have been pissed man, the media would have been there alright....doing the LEAD on a murder investigation!!"
Tony: whoa gurl u sure got a lot of road rage.
