I had a similar experience while in California. I was coming home on Highway 4 (4 lanes each direction) in the left lane and a guy tried to change lanes too quickly and lost control of the car. It started to go into a spin and at one point was travelling sideways in the lane right next to me. All I could think to do was click it down a gear and punch it before he slid into my lane and hit me. I saw in the mirror that he did come into my lane and had I not gotten out of the way he'd have probably killed me by putting me into the concrete divider.
I think the biggest thing I learned from that was just to be aware at all times. It happened towards the end of a 65 mile commute.
Always be ready for stupidity because it runs rampant in cage drivers.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
