Road rage or redemption??

So here I was driving down 95 minding my own business when this VW cruises in behind me and turns their high beams on?????? I guess she thought I was riding with my high beams on but it wasn't a quick flash, it was continuous running of high beams for about 30+ seconds before turning them off and getting back into the middle lane. I then proceed slow down, without hitting my brakes because that would have been a waste, and let the dumb whore pass me and immediately ride ass for a good one minute. She tries to brake check me and all that nonsense, but I didn't budge a bit. I then continue to ride her ass WITH my high beams on to show her what high beams really look like. I do that for another 30 seconds or so before I get back in the left lane and go on my merry way. Oh yeah, she got back into my lane and ran her highs again. It wasn't the fact that I couldn't see because we have the auto-dim rear view plus I have 5% in the back but don't be a ***** about it. A simple flash would be suffice to make someone aware that their high beams are on. What got me the most was that she was never even in my lane when I was behind her. Road rage? I think not Oh, I have 6k HID lows and fogs.

If she was behind you, how would she know you had your highbeams on ? - sounds more like she wanted to pass because you were driving too slow... but the fact that it was a 3+ lane Hwy is what throws me off :S

B**z be crazy !!!

I was in the left lane, she was in the middle lane. I passed her and then about a minute after I passed her she got into my lane and turned her highs on. She was at least 6 lengths behind me when doing this.

HID's without projectors can easily be mistaken for high beams. Mike your lights are bright as hell but regardless ...

in this case, i stand by my "B**z be crazy" statement. lol

But on a serious note, when i had retrofitted HID's into my halogen housings, they were often mistook for high beams as factory hight is too high.. once i adjusted the angle down it was all good

Oh trust me I understand. These HIDs are definitely a lot brighter than what most people are use to seeing, but don't be a B**** about it. That's what made me react.
