When it comes to getting road-rage, women are no better than men. If anything, they might actually be worse, if you consider the video at the bottom of the page as evidence.
This is a scene from the A5123 in Northampton, where 2 female drivers got out of their cars and into a violent fight right in the middle of the freeway, while the kids of one of them was crying and screaming at them to stop.
The fight was captured on camera right when it turned physical. A 40-ish old woman had gotten out of her Jaguar X-Type and was yelling at a younger, brunette woman who was driving an Audi A4, eyewitnesses tell the Daily Mail. The kid had also stepped out of the Jaguar and was trying to get his mother to let it go and drive away.
But she wasn’t to be dissuaded by her son’s tears and pleas. She slapped her nemesis and put her in a chokehold, and then body-slammed her to the ground. The younger woman got to place a few slaps as well, but she was clearly overpowered.
Meanwhile, oether drivers honked their horns and passers-by tried to get them to settle down by yelling at them, including the guy with the camera. None of that worked, so a braver man stepped in and actually got them to go back to their cars and drive away.
“The blonde one apparently slammed on her breaks and got out of the car, raising her voice. She pinned her up against the car and the next thing you know they were fighting. The blonde woman strangled her down to the floor,” the guy who shot the video tells the tab.
All it took for the blonde woman to get this angry was an accusation that she had cut the other driver off.
“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, I was a bit shocked to be quite honest. People tried to intervene to get them to stop. A man nearby said he would sort it out,” he adds.
And sort it out he did, though he came close to being punched as well.
