I guess I will make that my goal for this week... sell some stocks to get my $1800 for the real train horns...

It is either that or more SOLAR panels

Leave your window down and hang your head out of the window. Problem solved.

I had something similar here in Pennsylvania. called the state police, gave them the license number. Fortunately, someone else had called the State Police and reported road rage on the same car at the same time. That person was cited.
I usually stay in the right lane when coming to merges with entrance ramps. However, I do slow down a little to give the merging traffic a hole. If they don't go for it, it's their loss.

Plenty of bargains on AMAZON. I went simple and inexpensive, 2 1/4" screen, 30 min continuous loop recording, impact lock and removable disk around $30. Just wanted basics because of the idiots that cut in and stop.

Good chance if you brake check me, you might not survive to tell your side of the story. I have, a few times, had people get in front of me and slow down to be irritating. So, I just gouge on it and get right next to them and empty the air tank on the train horns. That generally gets them on the shoulder and stops their heart for a minute.

Amazon has some for as low as $18.00.. you get what you pay forI had one of those and just replaced it with one for $99.00 from RearViewSafety.com

Just let it go. It is very easy to get caught up in the moment when someone is being a jack . Just try and be the better person and let it go it's not worth it. Way too many crazy wacked out people on the road today.

I'm kind of guilty of crazy driving with a buggy in Walmart. Sometimes drifting, up on 2 wheels around corners, the occasional hands free driving. I have gotten in a few accidents with buggies in Walmart, but nobody was hurt. The look on somebody's face is priceless when you tell them sternly you hope they have good insurance.

My wife sometimes maintains a safe distance from me in Walmart as she never knows what I'll do. The kids on the other hand love it and hang close.
