The pleasures of Portsmouth....!
This happened today, posted on a car forum, I've pasted it here because exactly the same thing happened to a friend of mine, in the same area, a couple of months back. Maybe road rage in Portsmouth is on the increase?
"Just took the wife and the 2 boys out for a lovely day out in Portsmouth.
The sun was shining all was well with the world.
Set off back home around an hour ago, the kids all cosy in the back of the car.
The day then took a severe turn for the worse - just before turning onto the A3 some lunatic in a beat up white piece of junk skidded in front of my car cutting me up and screeched to a halt, blocking my car.
The guy then got out of his car - red faced and howling at me. I have literally no idea why or where he came from.
He then ran upto the car and started tugging at the door handle and screamed "get out of the f**king car". Thankfully the automatic door locking thing was enabled so he couldn't get access. He then started thumping the side window next to me with his fist - I'm amazed at the strength of them, I have no idea how he didn't smash them.
My 2 year old in the back started screaming and fortunately I had the presence of mind to fling the car in reverse and make off through a series of red lights to get away from the lunatic. Not before he'd given the rear haunch a real old kicking, leaving it covered in dents and footprints. Not a pretty sight, but as my wife reminded me on the way home - it's better the car's bruised than me.
I've considered ringing the old bill to let them know, but I can't see them helping much, and we never got his plates. Although we have a pretty decent set of prints on the window!
I'd only ever read about people experiencing this kind of thing before and let me tell you, it's bloody frightening especially with your family in tow.
I'm sure this isn't typical of porsche ownership as I've had a few now, but it's incredible what thugs there are about.
My tip - if you're driving through Portsmouth, keep the red light on next to the central locking button!
Now - I need a stiff drink!"
