I use a dash cam all the time while the coach is moving.

If some inconsiderate driver that should have never been issued a license darts in from of me I use my twin air horns to let them know that they just FU and it is not a little beep warning but a LONG HARD blast that can last 5-10 seconds.

I have lots of spare air and don't hesitate to use it.

With all the road rage today, it's better to just give up on getting back at them. Stupid is as stupid does, and you can't fix stupid. I just try to sit back, calm down and keep going on my way. No sense anyone dying over something stupid.....

Absolutely! And if someone should think my passive, non-aggressive, response to their stupidity is more than they can take, they can just force me over. At that point, however, they will have to decide if their anger/stupidity is more than my calm, measured response with a .40 in hand is what they want to take on.

This happened to us going north out of Ogden Utah in 1998. We just got on the expressway with little traffic and I was a ways behind a semi when he all of a sudden hit his brakes. The DW was getting things settled in the 34' DS MH and went head over heals towards the front. She cut her hand on something but did land in the passenger seat area. She got herself together and proceeded to question me on what the H##l I was doing and the SOB did it again. I hit the brakes again and then passed him up to see what he was doing and there were no cars in front of him for several hundred feet. He just did it out of spite I guess.

As stated, "You can't fix STUPID". No matter how hard you try. When we encounter idiots like that we just keep telling ourselves that they are going to or coming from work and that part of our life is way behind us.

Best to forget about it life's too short as it is no use getting the blood pressure up over it, I just figure they will at some point pull that on the wrong person and become another statistic without my help. Besides blowing the horn may scare an idiot into doing something even more dangerous like slamming on the brakes.
Drive careful and enjoy the ride.

Most dentists will not work on people with horn shoved between teeth of and down throat of horn blower. Best to just get around irritant and continue on. Some people carry a bigger gun than your use too...and they don't use extra psi for boost either. There is enough violence out there.

I guess all you can really do is honk your horn and give them the finger.
