As the generation that grew up playing Road Rash, we have some learning to do about de-escalation. Here’s how to avoid ending up as a hood ornament.

A friend once told me "if you REALLY need to confront someone on their driving, don't flip them off, that'll just make them angry. Give them a disappointing thumbs down. Nothing's more devastating than someone you've just met already being disappointed in you. Plus it helps you channel your rage and doesn't get them angry in the process"

I don't have road rage in my car. I DEFINITELY don't have road rage on my bike. Nothing is worth it.

The only thing good about California is you can legally split lanes. No stress express!! I get STUCK in more situations in a car then on my bike. If its possible to ride my bike then i ride my bike 99% of the time. One exception is the 110 degree no cloud surface of the sun heat. Anyway... It keeps me calm and i dont get stuck with the idiots. 30 years of experience you learn to read the vehicles. I can tell when they are on the phone, arguing with someone, eating, etc. They are like schools of fish. And when shit goes down I just.. pass it... bye bye

Excellent video Ryan, A few things that help me: 1. It’s very common to get mad when someone infringes on your right-of-way in traffic. You can feel cheated and and get the urge to not let the transgressor get away with improper behavior. I try to think of my own safety first (not always successfully), and before deciding what to do try to consider “who are you putting in danger ? 2. Close calls can take things up to an entirely different level. A car that cuts right in front of you many times results in you feeling that the driver just endangered your life. The natural “fight or flight” reaction kicks in from deep inside the animal part of your brain. Rage is a good description, in fact your rage is a natural defensive reaction, not some decision you made. Hopefully you’ll give yourself the opportunity to to make a decision based on safety before you act. Knowing this is just natural human instinct helps me with perspective. These things happen, what am I going to do about it. 3. Evaluate yourself as soon as you can. Is your heart racing? Are you consumed by anger or another strong emotion? MSF training advises to get off the road until you are able to calm down. Good advice. 4. Try to think of these situations as “why did I let them do this to me?” What can I learn or do different. Years ago I was making a left hand turn from a 2 lane road into a gas station. Blinker on, bike stopped in left half of the lane waiting on traffic. An 18 wheel semi passed me on the right, half in my lane and half on the berm. The SOB didn’t even slow down, just roared past a foot or two from me. After that, I always stop in the right hand half of the lane to block these illegal passes. 5. I despise city riding and try to avoid. I ride for recreation and riding on a busy street is no fun. Ride safe

I won't agree with violence, but on the other hand if we don't let them know how uncapable are and how murderous is the way they drive its equally bad, as to break their windows and rage road wars. There's got to be something to make these arrogant Idiots understand that they are not alone on this Freaking planet no matter how big and rich they are, and that they simply can't do whatever they want while driving 🚗 lol it's disturbing tho have conversations like this in 2021, but as you all can see here we are. My opinion is that it is up to each and everyone of us to make a change.

I'm just glad that *you* are popular and going to become very popular. Because you are a great critical and intelligent thinker. Regarding everything, not just motorcycles. And although I hate the idea of "influencing" people, this kind of influencing is very needed, especially for younger people. I guess "influencing" sounds bad to me only because it has been so abused by those who don't have best interests of others' in mind, that seek to manipulate for their own sake. Thank you, for existing I guess, and for being/becoming popular. Someday this world/society will be good, intelligent, civilized. Good luck to us all.🤝

I've rode bikes for almost 50-years...but 'slap my mirror and start yelling', and when you come to a stop and walk're going to see how Yogi feels, after having a can of bear spray dumped on him...then I'm getting out, kicking your bike over, and driving you wonder how to extinguish your eyeballs. I don't behave like this on my bike...and I absolutely will not tolerate it from other bikers (coming to a stop and parking your bike on a roadway is who are you to preach?).

I am not suitable to ride in a caged vehicle. My anger get’s the best of me. If you think 4 wheelers are obnoxious in their inconsideration of others, you haven’t experienced the cyclists here in the netherlands. Often the cause of accidents, but legally never the blame.

Sorry bud. I don't agree with you in the slightest on this one. Fear is the only way to bring an enemy under control. Every empire that adopted this thinking prospered. Nations like India, China and France were conquered for this kind of feminized, Gandhi thinking. Just like the U.S is succumbing to feminized weakness. Drivers need to fear bikers because we have no defense. Only violent retaliation. I've seen the shit drivers do to bikers. Blood for blood is the only way. When enough sick drivers get smoked for trying to injure bikers is when we will finally have equal respect. Until then, fuck ALL drivers. We will not tolerate being treated like 2nd class citizens on the same highways we also pay for.

I always thought about how these videos full of western bikers trying to make a problem out of everything from small to big and make it such a big issue. Thing is sometimes even in the videos i dont really think they're in the right, as an example, from where i live small stuff like someone trying to get pass you by cutting you off as long as they stay in speed is not that much of problem because you adjust in the road, but apparently in some western countries something like that could get your windows smashed, put to youtube with unfunny memes, etc.

One day a girl didn't look and pulled out in front of me, I braked just before hitting her door she was in the middle of the road stalled our faces four or five feet apart and for some reason I just shook my head really slowly, like I wasn't worried about nearly going splat as much as I was just disappointed in her and a little sad. This is now my go-to response for people not giving way, failing to indicate or nearly smushing me and you can see in their eyes its 1000 times more effective than yelling at them.

First off, props for including the clip from The Giant Claw! Second, although I have never tried it, there is a response published in Cycle or Cycle World back in the 1970s that I always liked. Pull up in the lane next to the offending vehicle (while moving) and gesticulate wildly at either the front or rear wheel of the car as if something is horribly wrong with it. It’s not road rage, you are looking out for the safey of your fellow motorist! Or, better yet, just imagine doing it as a way of venting your frustration at the bad driving of others and go on your way without confrontation.

This was really just a flashy, though very superficial essay on the matter; really disappointing. I've been a daily rider in Los Angeles for nearly forty years and have seen and (unfortunately) experienced just about every road situation imaginable. I've been hospitalized three times in a dozen years with life-threatening injuries, even died on the operating table once--all at the hands of distracted cagers on their cellphones. I wish that you had gone a bit deeper into the psychology of road ragers, especially raging motorcyclists. Sadly, this was one of your weaker efforts where all the flashy editing and effects couldn't hide the fact that is was mostly self-important puff.

And then there is this guy...Wow! For LTpost this is pretty high caliber production quality. AND this dude is smart and does quality research and has a quirky kind of moto geek sense of humor. Well done FortNine. Well done.

I can honestly say this was one of THE most poignant videos I have seen on this topic. For some reason I have never suffered from road rage but I know 1 or 2 others and how even the slightest of situations will have my friend so wound up with the emotional toll of it that he quite literally watches hours of dash cam videos every day to the point it's rare to see him even take a break to watch a movie or heaven forbid political news but that's the other addiction that many have nowadays. I shared this video with him. I hope it gives the man a peak into alternative attitude when riding. Thanks for making this video.

What gets me is the car drivers who feel the need to get right on my ass while riding. I'm not riding a crotch rocket, I don't go fast. I usually am found doing the speed limit. I've found myself using my left hand to signal a "BACK OFF" motion, which they typically notice and back off, but why tail so close to a motorcyclist in the first place? I just want to stay alive.
