Beejay, I fully support in what you did. You actually should have called his dad and given him an earful as well. Most of these morons have no clue about driving rules and hardly understand their responsibility while being on the wheels.
Keep up the good work mate!

Way to go. You did nothing wrong. In fact you should've just called his dad.

I wanted to do just that. The vehicle had a CO plate and I am sure his dad was a commanding officer. The guy was like waiting to flee after I caught up with him.
This is a small town and I am sure this is not the last I see of him.

Wish to mention that even some of these army vehicle drivers have such a bad attitude. There was an instance of a truck driver who beat up a civilian taxi guy from Coimbatore. Reason being he honked too loud when overtaking.
FYI, the cops in town are also scared of these guys.

In Delhi, high chances that such person may be carrying firearms and will not hesitate to pull it off. Though anyone would react like you did for the driving shown by this guy.

Cases of road rage deaths? I've heard it's pretty bad. But deaths?

And it's not like they pay for the car, fuel or the services.

They should read the book "The Professional" by Subroto Bagachi.
They will be ashamed.
