Unfortunately, he declined the offer and quickly returned to his vehicle, where his horrified female companion was waiting to console his bruised ego. People get this false notion that they are invincible when they get in their vehicles, and so they drive like a$$ holes with supposed impunity. They forget they have to stop eventually.
Rant over.
Understand the frustration, this happens all too often but following the guy then confronting him is very risky in this day and age. Lots of crazies out there, lucky it ended well for you and a just a bruised ego for the dimwit.

I know what your saying, but he just caught my attention at the perfect time, and I could tell he was a little punk anyway. I just wanted to call him on it. Believe me when I tell you he was the one in jeopardy.

You may think it's a good idea to follow someone until they stop, just so you can express your unhappiness at their driving skills, but in some places that is just an invitation to get shot at. Here in Texas we have advanced from the "pull over and I'll whip your ass stage to the, I'll just shoot your ass stage. IMHO Sometimes you just need to bite your lip, shake your head and be greatful you have the skills to not run over some dumb asses.

LOL I loved my trip to CA! Finally people who know how to drive (except for the d*** that almost wrecked the OP - glad you and your truck are ok!) since I live in Colorado now.

Moving to CO from Illinois takes some real adjustments. In IL, it's almost like CA. They only do the speed limit in the construction zones - which means you're still going 20 over the posted work zone speed limit. 70-80 is the norm in a 55 mph zone in IL. Here in CO....ugh....people drive so slow! And they don't get out of your way.
