Bizarre incident

Was stuck in traffic driving in to work this morning - trying to work our what my options were for turning in one of the lanes leading from the E40 to the inner ring - when the woman in the car behind me got out, walked up to my car door and asked me to wind down the window; she then yelled at me in Dutch (I was too surprised to listen to what she was saying) and then hit me on the mouth before stomping back to her own car. Not too hard, but rather shocking behaviour. Needless to say, I noted her licence plate number, got away as fast as possible, pulled in when I found a safe place and called the police. Other people's driving sometimes frustrates me, and I'm sure my own has frustrated many, but there are appropriate reactions and there are reactions which will lead to hassle beyond merely arriving at work a bit late.

Oh goodness.

Glad you thought of checking the licence plate - being HIT is just... I'm outraged just reading it!

That's really shitty! Hope you're okay!

Having been the victim of something along the same lines last year - though while a pedestrian - I hope the police catch her!

Totally lacking in Christmas spirit, I'd say she was. Sorry you had to bear the brunt of her rage.

Hope you're as all right and not too shaken up. What a horrible thing to happen.

That's crazy. "Roll down your window so I can hit you, there's a love". Hope you're not too shaken up. Not sure what the police can do unless it turns out she has a history of this kind of thing, but you were right to call.

How did you end up in Los Angeles while driving in Europe, that's what I want to know.

Good God, how horrible. Good getting her licence number --I don't think I'd have shown such presence of mind.

Some people are just crazy, I guess we better never let down or window...

Don't expect too much from the police though, my sister in law had an incident where she got in between two cars where everybody had to shift in, the car behind her, did pass her again, then went backwards crashing her car (not too bad, but still) and then he went further to get in line again. They noted the license plate and even had a witness, but the police didn't find it serious enough to make it an official complaint...

What a shock! I hope you're okay, and also hope that you get a good response from the police.

Wow. Just wow.

It's good to hear you've reported this to the police; I hope this crazy woman at least gets charged with assault, or something. I mean, we've all had times when we felt like punching another motorist, but...

Besides which, I find it difficult to believe your driving could be all that dreadful! Once, when I was learning (in the instructor's car, so big red L plates everywhere) someone overtook me on the right ... as I was turning right. Now that's the sort of driving that (almost) deserves a punch in the mouth.
