I too had to re-read the beginning of the article, as it is written it implies that ted drewes did it. Nice editing rft. Oh and if people didn't consistently drive like morons who got their licenses from bubble gum machines people wouldn't get cut. I'm just sayin.

Dear RFT: please write and/or edit better; either would prevent stating Ted Drewes has committed an assault.

I happen to drive fast, however I dont dart in and out of traffic. However road rage stems a lot from when you try to pass someone who insists on driving in the passing lane, holding up traffic and you try to pass then they gun it. Why???? Dont play games with people.

Sick of morons who think that being on their phone and driving is safe too. Hope the guy heals from his attack.

If people were not douchebags in general, we wouldn't have road rage, people get sick and tired of selfish crack head/meathead speed freaks darting in and out of traffic. So they stick up for themselves. Look at the cause of road rage. Not the people who get upset.

Life in the ghetto. It's becoming more and more apparent that blacks in the city don't know how to solve issues without violence. And it's usually against their own race.

There has got to be more to this story if the guy didn't want to involve the police.

All races commit crimes against their race on avg of 84%. Read something and stop looking for articles that prove your bigoted point of view.
