The homicidal sense of entitlement felt by most car drivers continues unabated in California.
But this time, bad behavior is being punished.
WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. (AP) - California highways have been shut down by wildfires, mudslides, earthquakes and police chases. Add one more emergency to the list: road rage.
Drivers inconvenienced by a road-widening project subjected construction workers to so much abuse—including death threats, BB gun shootings, even a flying burrito—that the state revoked a rush- hour window and shut down the highway altogether.
Now drivers who relied on California Highway 138 are being forced to take a detour that costs them at least a half-hour a day and businesses along the road are suffering.
Enjoy a moment of carfree Schadenfreude.
