Cop erupts at NY cabdriver

Driving in NYC can be hell. It's particularly hellish when another driver starts shouting at you. That's the way some people drive. In an environment where there is no courtesy, no understanding, no forbearance, only honking horns and shouting insults, it's no wonder that many New Yorkers refuse to drive cars there.

Yet the cabdrivers must drive. That's how they make a living. This video shows road rage that is way too common in our cities, where aggressive drivers use their cars to threaten other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

This chaos of shouting and insults is caused by a lack of regulation. Traffic should be calmed. Dangerous maneuvers, like parallel parking on a busy street, should be banned. Cars should be banned altogether from the most impacted parts of the city.

Anger and frustration have become a way of life in our cities. We need to take heed and pass reasonable regulations to avoid the causes of road rage and make our cities more pleasant to live in.
