Road rage is never a good idea. Sure, someone's driving could be ridiculous or (in your mind) be worthy of a middle finger or expletive but it's not necessary. You don't know what is going on in the life of the other driver. "They were on their phone!", you might think. What if they're receiving a negative life-changing call or text? This is just one example of why we should take a moment to think before immediately reacting.

There isn't a whole lot of background about this incident but it is definitely frightening.

Illinois police arrested and charged Brian Schimian (41) of Richmond, Illinois after he pulled out a gun and pointed it in the face of Bart Surroz, also of Richmond. According to Bart's Facebook.

Schimian had repeatedly honked and at yelled him while stopped on Highway 12. Bart assumed he had hit something or Brian was trying to alert him that I'm dragging something behind his car. The incident took place on Hwy 12, just south of Hwy 173.

I had no idea he was upset and angry with me. I don't even know why! He was just behind me holding on the horn so I got out in dead stop traffic trying to figure out what the heck is going on.

Here is the incident from Bart's phone.
