Talking Cagers with cell phone revenge

I headed out this morning to run some errands and I live in a subdivision off of a 2 lane 55 mph road. I get to the intersection and see a cage about 200 yards out so I take off. I get up to about 60, and this crazy bitch passes me at about 80 with her cell phone in her hand and nearly takes me out because she didn't move over fast enough in the passing lane. I catch up the her at the next red light, still has phone in hand but I'm not beside her. Light turns green and we are now on a 4 lane 55 mph, I get up to her and she is still texting doing 80 mph. She is in right lane and we are coming up on 55 mph traffic, so I twist it and get to the slower vehicles first and pull the road block thing with the front car of the pack as she falls in behind me all the way into town, a nice 55 mph....waahaahaaa! She is so pissed. Ok, for the trolls, I know cage vs bike is not so smart and I don't ride like this with wife on the back but this bitch was driving me crazy. Its bad enough to be doing the speed limit and texting but she was doing 80, she was going to kill somebody. As we got into town she moved back over to the right lane to go straight thru the light behind about four cars and I caught the red to turn left. As the cars passed me, they ALL had thumbs up for me as they passed. What a day!

If someone wants to go fast, let them. It's not anyone's job to play traffic cop and slow other people down.

Deliberately slowing other people is just bitterness.

Glad you're here to tell the story. Try that in the Chicago area and you'll either get shot, run over or both.

I see idiots all the time on their cell phones, weaving in and out of their lane, sometimes into mine. What do I do? Either get the heck away from them ahead and in a different lane, or let them get ahead of me so I can watch to see if they'll implode themselves. There isn't any other better option, unfortunately. Sometimes, I've hollered at them to get off the phone, but that just makes them mad, and some have purposely cut me off and braked hard because of it. It's just not worth the effort to try to "educate" them, no matter that what they're doing is both dangerous AND illegal. Stupid people will do whatever they want, no matter what. It's all about THEM, and they really don't CARE about anyone else.

And every response to your thread can be summed up thus.

If I'm going 55 and someone blows by me at 80. I just let them go. Not worth the trouble of getting upset.

This goes for the people speeding while on their cell phones and itís also describing the people who suddenly feel the need to step in try to remedy the situation, like the OP did.
