Nowhere is man closer to his bestial nature then when driving in traffic. Hurtling along in our expensive metal death-boxes, knowing that the slightest mistake on our part, or that of our fellow drivers, could lead to injury, death, or financial ruin. It’s probably the most stressful thing we do on a daily basis.

That’s why “road rage” is such a well-known term. As frustrating as other tasks may be, you don’t hear people talking about “jar lid rage” or “stuck zipper rage.” Driving a car seems like the activity over which people most regularly lose their shit in public, and these four people in Houston did so in particularly fantastic fashion.

It’s unclear what exactly sparked all this, but according to ABC News, the driver of the white car filed a police report nine hours after the incident, claiming the truck was speeding and nearly hit his car. 

Unsurprisingly, people were quick to mock the incident on twitter.

Perhaps the strangest part of this video in how calm the couple filming it sound… well, that and the fact that they’re probably blocking traffic themselves. Maybe they wanted to get a second brawl going?
