Road Rage:

  • Occurs when a driver reacts angrily to other drivers
  • You cut off another driver
  • Tailgating
  • Gesturing or waving fist.
  • Flip off someone
  • Aggressive driving
  • Excessive speeds
  • Scream at another
  • Chase another car

Road Rage is an symptom of an underlying issue with a driver. Impulse Control is a major issue. They are unable to remain in control of themselves or their emotions. Often stress is very high in your life. Perhaps your personal or business life is not going very well. Your anger spreads beyond driving creeping into other aspects of your life.

Choose to Calm Down and disengage from your stress.

 

For drivers who do not experience Road Rage knowing what might trigger a person is equally important.

 

Do not “flip off” someone with your middle finger. They may have a pistol in hand waiting for an excuse. Some people may just not like your look. Your race. Your hair color.

 

Atlanta has now become an aggressive driving city with too many cars and not enough roads.

Blood Alcohol Level Calculator

Blood Alcohol Level Calculator

Blood alcohol content, or BAC, is an important number that helps determine the level of alcohol in a person’s bloodstream. The higher the BAC, the more alcohol is likely to have an impact on everything from coordination and balance to emotions and brain function.

Controlling your alcohol intake and watching your BAC levels can help prevent harm both to yourself and to others. To make tracking your BAC levels easier, consider using our BAC calculator below. A BAC calculator will help do the math for you, providing an estimate of your current blood alcohol content.

Analysis:

 

How is BAC Determined?

Alcohol impacts your BAC in different ways, and can even impact various people differently. The most common way BAC is raised is through the number of drinks that a person consumes, on top of how many drinks you have and how quickly each drink is consumed in relation to each other.

Body weight can also play a role in determining BAC, as someone who weighs more has a higher water volume than someone who weighs less. This difference results in smaller people experiencing a greater impact from the same amount of alcohol ingested by larger people. Gender also impacts BAC, as women typically have a lower water volume in their bodies than men. To a lesser extent, recent food consumption, or the lack of food consumption, may also impact BAC.

How BAC Impacts the Body

Even a small amount of alcohol can impact both coordination and judgment when drinking, with each drink increasing your overall impairment. Too much alcohol and your body will ultimately shut down, resulting in organ failure and even death. It’s important to understand that individuals may react differently to alcohol intoxication at each BAC level. In general, they may exhibit some or all of the following symptoms and behaviors.

.02 BAC
At this level, the muscles start to relax. Inhibitions are also reduced, with many individuals experiencing a heightening of whatever mood they may have been in before they started drinking, whether that be a positive or a negative state of mind.

.05 BAC
Once you reach this level, you may start experiencing a mild euphoria. Your body temperature starts to feel elevated and your inhibitions become even more relaxed, along with an even greater exaggeration of mood.

.08 BAC
This is the legal BAC limit in many states, and typically for good reason. At this point you may think you’re not intoxicated, but your speech has started to slur, your ability to walk and stand starts to become more difficult and your reaction times slow. At this level of intoxication, motor skills are largely impacted and driving a car becomes dangerous (though for many, even at lower levels you should not be behind the wheel of a vehicle).

.10 BAC
At this level, your intoxication is more apparent both to yourselves and to those around you. Your judgement, memory, motor skills and balance are all reduced, and you start to forget just how many drinks you’ve had. Depending on the individual, you may become loud or belligerent. Men begin to experience difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection at this level.

.14 BAC
Once above .13, feelings of euphoria start to drop, and feelings of sickness, dizziness, and difficulty controlling the body take over. Each of the negative effects of drinking at lower alcohol concentrations are markedly more severe. At this point you may also start to black out.

.20 – .30 BAC
Alcohol sickness starts at this level, often resulting in vomiting. When this intoxicated, gag reflex is severely impacted, dramatically increasing the risks of choking on your own vomit. Blackouts are more frequent, and your memory starts to blackout as well. Pain sensors are dampened, which means that if you are injured at this point, you may not know it or feel the pain from it. This also reduces the chances you’ll go to get help.

.35 BAC
Once at .35, your blood alcohol level is similar to the effects of being under anesthesia. Your brain function is reduced, which also reduces your respiratory rate, causing you to potentially stop breathing.

.40 BAC
If you have not stopped breathing by this point, your body will most likely enter a coma state. Your heart rate will slow, and your chances of survival are very low.

Additional Consequences

Along with the physical consequences listed above, various potential social, financial and legal consequences may also occur with intoxication. For example, driving while intoxicated can not only injure you, but can also injure innocent people around you. In fact, an estimated 30 people die every day in the United States due to alcohol-related traffic accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Even if you survive the accident, or not even cause an accident at all, you may still be faced with fines and jail time for driving under the influence (DUI). Once you’re allowed to drive again, you may see additional penalties in the form of increased insurance rates and difficulty finding companies that will take the risk to insure you.

Please Don’t Drink and Drive

All states have passed a .08 per se law. the final one took effect in august of 2005.  

* Calculations are estimates only and not to be relied upon for real life situations. This is because there are so many subtle differences, such as varying metabolic rates sex, medications being taken, how frequent drinks were taken, and other health issues. Therefore, this calculator should be used for general purpose information only.

Dad Dies After Road Rage Shooting Near Cheshire Bridge in Atlanta, GA

ATLANTA, Ga. — Police believe it was road rage that caused a driver to shoot into another car near Cheshire Bridge Road in northeast Atlanta.
Demetrius Wright, Gwinnett father of a 10-year-old girl, died three weeks after the shooting. Police believe he was trying to get onto I-85 near Cheshire Bridge when a grey Pontiac Grand Prix, carrying three men, pulled up and opened fire.
Wright’s family gave their first interview since the March 16 shooting.
“It is the worst feeling ever to know that someone you love was on their way home from doing something they love and then they were shot,” Wright’s fiancée Alexis Laney told Channel 2’s Ryan Young on Tuesday.
Laney is supposed to be preparing for one of the happiest days of her life. She was close to marrying, Wright, her boyfriend of 10 years. Instead, she’s planning his funeral this weekend.
“I never would have imagined having to watch my fiancé be buried on Saturday,” Laney said. “I thought he would live forever. I thought we were going to grow old.”
Loved ones are pleading for witnesses to come forward to help police make an arrest in this case.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.

GAINESVILLE GA ROAD ROAD DEATH

Two Young Women Killed In Separate Road Rage Incidents In GA

Posted: Oct 14, 2013 3:21 PM EDTUpdated: Oct 14, 2013 5:15 PM EDT

By WBTW News Staff

Two young women died in two different road rage incidents in Georgia on Friday – one in a shooting and another in a head-on crash, authorities say.

Cobb County officers say road rage is the reason behind a fatal shooting near Kennesaw, Georgia that killed a female college student.

Meanwhile, another the second road-rage case occurred near Gainesville Friday morning in which a 22-year-old woman was killed in a crash.

College student Kim Kilgore, age 21, is dead after authorities say she was shot inside the gates of her apartment complex early Friday morning.

The suspect, 22-year-old Lindsey Sparkles Lashayla, has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting.

Police say a case of road rage incident between people in two vehicles led to a fight at the apartment complex where Kilgore was shot.

Friends say Kilgore who was a student at Kennesaw State University died after being taken off life support.

The incident involved two carloads of females and an altercation started near the gate to the apartment complex, said Sgt. Dana Pierce, a Cobb police spokesman.

“There was a whole lot going on out there,” he told the Atlanta Journal. “You have two carloads or groups of people who are at one another.”

Kilgore was studying communications at Kennesaw State University, where she was a former member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority.

The sorority issued a statement on Twitter Friday about the Paulding County High School graduate: “Our prayers go out to our dear friend Kim Kilgore!” The university also issued a statement, expressing condolences and announcing that it was preparing to offer grief counseling for those who knew Kilgore.

Police do not have information indicating the suspect and the victim previously knew each other, Pierce said.

In the second incident, an out-of-control pickup truck driver repeatedly rammed a couple from behind on a highway in Gainesville. The couple then called 9-1-1:

Caller: We have got a red pickup truck following us
Caller: He just hit us! He just hit us!
Driver: He’s about to hit somebody head-on.
Caller: He just hit somebody head-on. No! No! No!
Dispatcher: Ma’am, ma’am. Calm down.
Driver: He just hit somebody head-on going about 70 miles an hour.

Investigators say that’s when 48-year-old Michael Williams, the driver behind the wheel in the pickup, hit 22-year-old Chelsea Gerrish head on killing jimself and Gerrish.

The couple heard on the 911 calls has not been identified.

Funeral services for Kilgore be held on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 2:00 PM, from West Ridge Church in Dallas, GA, with Pastor Gene Evans and Pastor Mark Evans officiating.

Interment will follow in Peaceful Meadows Memorial Park. The Kilgore family will receive friends at Clark Funeral Home, on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 between the hours of 4:00 and 8:00 p.m.

Clark Funeral Home in Hiram, GA, is in charge of arrangements.

Lesbian Charged With Killing Kennesaw Student During Road Rage Incident

Sparkle Lindsey and Kim Kilgore

A 22-year-old Cobb County woman was charged with the shooting death of a Kennesaw student during a road rage incident that is slowly attracting national attention.

Kimberly Kilgore, 21, and Sparkles LaShayla Lindsey’s lives couldn’t be more different. The popular Kennesaw State University student loved country and western music, and she took pride in her vast collection of cowboy boots.

Lindsey emulated the thug life that was glorified by the rappers she idolized. According to published reports, Lindsey, of Austell, had a criminal record that most rappers would envy.

The two women’s lives intersected on a darkened stretch of Shiloh Road in Cobb County, GA, early Friday morning. A road rage incident involving 2 carloads of women ended with shots fired just inside the gates of Shiloh Green Apartments around 2 a.m.

Witnesses say the two drivers — Lindsey and Kilgore — got into a physical altercation in the parking lot of the apartment complex. At some point, Lindsey pulled a gun out of her waistband and fired a single shot, striking Kilgore in the head.

Kilgore was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Lindsey and her friends fled the scene before police arrived.

Detectives secured an arrest warrant for Lindsey later that day and she was taken into custody without incident. Lindsey was charged with aggravated assault and murder.

Kilgore’s friends struggle to understand the senseless violence committed by a young woman who had at least 2 prior arrests for assault and battery.

Kilgore was scheduled to work Friday night at Johnny’s BBQ in Powder Springs. One of her co-workers was a passenger in Kilgore’s SUV that night.

“She works every Friday night and here it is Friday night and we’re walking around … just can’t even describe the feeling,” Manager Alisa Pannell told Channel 2 reporter Ashley Swann.

Cobb County residents vented their frustrations on social media and message boards. Most of the angry chatter centered around Kilgore and Lindsey’s skin color and the perceived media bias that suppresses race when a black kills a white.

Lindsey’s friends defended her on social media networks. “My old co-worker, Sparkles Lindsey, killed a girl over a road rage incident. While she was wrong, people need to watch how they drive,” tweeted Natasha Hall.

Lindsey is being held without bond in the Cobb County jail.

Georgia Boy, 4, Shot in Road Rage Incident

PHOTO A frustrated man driving down an Atlanta, Georgia road shot into a minivan, injuring a four-year-old toddler strapped into his car seat.

 

 Atlanta police are hunting the impatient driver who became enraged when a mini van didn’t move quickly enough when a light turned green and then fired a gun at the mini van, injuring a 4-year-old toddler strapped into his car seat.

The mother of Korda, the boy who was hurt, said that the driver behind her turned angry when she didn’t accelerate at a green light fast enough on Tuesday.

“Once he blew his horn, I blew my horn back like, ok I hear you,” Tammitha Williams said.

When Williams made a turn, the angry driver followed her.

“The next thing I know, he’s behind me, he’s weaving back and forth in traffic like coming beside my car and I’m like, what’s wrong with this man? He jumped back behind me and that’s when I heard the gunshot,” Williams said.

The bullet penetrated the back door and then went through the backseat of the van. It was strong enough to go through Korda’s car seat.

“I was panicking, I was praying because I didn’t know where he got hit or anything, so I’m just praying, asking God to make sure he’s OK,” Williams said.

Williams said that Korda remained surprisingly calm.

“He didn’t cry at all, he was a big boy…I cried like a baby myself,” she said.

Korda was shot in his buttocks.

“I got a big hole in my van, not only in my van. I got it in my heart because they really hurt my baby,” Williams said. “I don’t know this person, but he hurt me…it could have been a whole different outcome, he could have been dead and gone, I could have been burying a 4-year-old.”

Dekalb County Police Chief Bill O’Brien said it was only a matter of inches that saved Korda’s life.

“We are very lucky because we could just as easy be working a homicide case today,” O’Brien said. “He’s [Korda’s] extremely lucky, a matter of inches in any direction, it could have hit him in the spine. Iif the shot had been fired a little higher, it could have even hit him in the back of the head.”

Police have recovered ballistic evidence and believe the shooter was a man driving with a woman in a white SUV.

Korda will return to the hospital next week for a procedure, but doctors say the bullet hit soft tissue and luckily, he will fully recover.

Road Rage Turns Violent, Toddler Shot in Car Seat

This isn’t the first time road rage has taken a violent turn.

YouTube videos show countless video of drivers coming unglued, viciously punching each other, spitting and throwing everything from coffee to crutches.

In 2008, Thomas Timko was shot in front of his 8-year-old daughter by a driver who said he’d cut him off at a Philadelphia toll plaza.

A former Marine, Christian Squillaciotti, pleaded guilty to the shooting in 2010 and was sentenced to 13 to 26 years in prison.

ATLANTA RATES #2 IN LEAST COURTEOUS DRIVERS

AutoVantage Survey on Road Rage Identifies Atlanta as 2nd Least Courteous City in the US

Stamford, CT- May 12, 2014

When it comes to getting to and from work, a recent survey says Atlantans have it worse than citizens in just about any other city.

The 2014 In the Driver’s Seat Road Rage Survey identified Atlanta as having the second least courteous drivers across America’s largest cities. This represents an “increase” of two spots from the same survey in 2009.

Rankings were determined by measuring a wide array of driving actions that inhabitants admit to performing and acknowledge seeing, along with observations of their reactions to other drivers.

When compared to drivers in other cities, survey participants in Atlanta are:

  • Most likely to admit purposely bumping another driver in reaction to perceived poor driving
  • Most likely to see another driver speeding
  • Most Likely to acknowledge tailgating someone else
  • 2nd most likely to see other drivers eating or drinking while behind the wheel

While drivers in Atlanta were identified as among the least courteous, Portland, OR was identified as having the most courteous drivers.

The survey’s worst cities were:

Least Courteous
2014 2013
1. Houston 1. New York City
2. Atlanta 2. Dallas
3. Baltimore 3. Detroit
4. Washington DC 4. Atlanta
5. Boston 5. Minneapolis

COUPLE ARRESTED FOR ASKING DIRECTIONS

Couple Arrested For Asking Directions

Arrest Video – How Not To Get Arrested. Do Not Mess With Police.

A young couple lost in Baltimore asked a police officer for directions.
For doing so they got arrested. At the end where it cut off the female officer
told the girl that she’s going to jail too.

Another Story:
“I walked up to a police car in work uniform to ask for directions, he pulled his pistol out and told me never walk up to an officer in his car.
I had a uniform on with clipboard and company vehicle with company Id all visible…” 1975acidburn

Atlanta Anger Management Mantra we teach….’I can get arrested for anything‘. Listen to your inner voice… ‘I can get arrested for anything‘,
shut up and and leave quickly. Oh…do not speed! LOL
