    I was minding my own business the other day while driving home in heavy traffic, and I noticed a lifted diesel Ford F350 behind me tailgating and swerving. Every time I looked at him in the rear view mirror, he was flipping me off and swearing and clearly about to have an aneurism because he was making himself so angry. I very calmly moved over a lane to let him pass, and he proceeded to swerve into my lane nearly hitting the Tesla and then "rolled coal". Guy was clearly losing it, and to be honest all I could do was chuckle since he looked so stupid. Lots of people in their cars around us were just staring at him like WTF really? I took some clips off my TeslaCam and uploaded to YouTube and sent to highway patrol as a road rage report, but I figured people here might want to see it too. Guy clearly seems to hate electric cars - maybe Smart cars too as you can see in the video.

    Be careful out there guys and gals - lots of crazy people!

    Me moving over to the outside lane - second time changing lanes to remove myself from his area



    Tail end of truck coming into my lane at 3 seconds
    "Rolling coal" at 35 seconds



    General tailgating and getting as close as physically possible to my rear bumper at 32 seconds



    General tailgating and me changing lanes to get out of his way

    That sucks. I've experienced "hate" from other drivers in different cars like a lady at a gas station who flipped me and cussed at me literally driving by as I was just standing next to my Porsche Macan filling it up a couple years ago. People are so weird and angry. Makes no sense.
