Act like an ass in traffic and there is a very good chance that you ARE GOING TO BE FILMED DOING IT. And your exploits will be on the internet 10 minutes later, and in the hands of the authorities half an hour after that.

Cameras are getting smaller and cheaper and will soon be on every dashboard and handlebar. And that's good news for us that ride in traffic. Don't these jerks get it??
This is true.

Makes you wonder where all the pics and videos of Big Foot, ET, and the Loch Ness monster are...

Same place as the photos and videos of miracles. The reports of all sorts of paranormal stuff is dropping off as we reach points where there's no real excuse for not having taken a photo of it, so people get a much more critical hearing when they just make stuff up.

that other story about the mirror and using the pump to hit the passenger looking to do damage to your friend is just awful. i'm glad your friend is ok but seriously where the hell do these people come from? their parents obviously didn't raise them right.

No updates to post. I followed up with the police last week and they claim they attempted to contact the idiots with no success. I'm going to call again today.

Keep at it. If no luck, maybe you could post the number of the police office here, and we could all flood them with calls...
