Arlington police: Pellets shot at Uber car in road-rage clash

Thanks You for this
Hyperlinked Herald Newspaper Article.

The Wiferoo and I suspect a .177 or .22
Pellet gun as the MO for the overnight
shattering of HER rear windscreen, in
our driveway, some years ago.

Fortunately, in Massachusetts Glass is
Zero Deductible. Good thing because
that RWS was between $1500 and $2000
coming all the way from Nippon!

Vandalism SUCKS!

Not saying it was right but looks like passengers were responsible for this incident getting out of hand.
I slammed on the brakes and almost kicked some pax out one night for rolling down a window and yelling obscenities at another driver. Told them I wasn't about to get shot in some road rage incident because of their drunken bullshit (exact words). I don't know if it was my tone but they went from drunk and rowdy to contrite and apologetic. Didn't ding my rating either.

That is a great story. I have clashes that typically don't turn out this well. For whatever reason, females seem to be able to accept some scolding and tone down their behavior. Very seldom can I read the riot act to guys and have it end well.

Great job! Wish we had this on video.
