Probably didn't use blinker

I'm sure the Audi driver didn't use a directional signal (standard Audi operating procedure) and the other driver had the nerve to honk at him for it. Then things escalated rather quickly.

Not just Audis, standard

Not just Audis, standard Boston driver procedure. Also add dont stop at stop signs, dont yield to pedestrians and block intersections. But theres no enforcement so why bother driving legally in Boston. The driver who showed the gun will maybe get a warning. Drivers run over pedestrians and the BPD say they probably just didnt see them, showing a gun is nothing. Unless there are different rules for threatening or hurting drivers versus pedestrians.

He didn't honk, he didn't flip the bird....he merely showed that he was prepared to deal with his grievances in exactly the way our Founding Fathers envisioned.

Or are yall serious?

sarcasm, of course

There are some folks wandering these parts who think that anything a gun owner does with a gun is protected and responsible, and that consequences just aren't fair!

Make sure that straw man you've constructed doesn't get near an open flame....

C'mon U-Hubbers, we can do better than that. Forget the gun; let's pretend Mr. Audi cut off an unemployed hipster on a bicycle who blew through a redlight, while driving the wrong way on a one-way street after shopping at the Whole Foods on Centre St.

Make a DMV complaint

By on

If you have the plate#, I believe you can make a complaint with the DMV. A police officer told me this years ago and I did make a complaint regarding a particularly unsafe driver that I had encountered. What happens is that all parties are issued a citation hearing date. Then you go to the hearing and make your case.

DMV?

One of the fastest ways to get you pegged as an outsider around here. It is RMV, FYI.

Out of Stater

I think you mean "out of stater".

And heaven forbid that someone move here from somewhere else and use a term that is accepted in all the other 49 states in the union.

On a thread about how lawless Boston drivers are, the commenter is probably proud to have shown they can't trace their lineage to the pilgrims like you.

My family got here after the Beatles and I call it the RMV. I call it Tonic. I call it a bubbler. I call it the cellar. I call them Jimmies. Keep your language out of my city.

When did it stop being the Registry?

By on

Those of us who are "from here" have never heard of this "Department" of Motor Vehicles.

I've heard that in some Midwestern states they call it the Secretary of State. Odd!

I've got Costello beat, Bostonwise. My family hit Boston way back in the Eisenhower era.

Jimmies!!!!

I still say, Bubbler, Registry & Jimmies... It's nostalgia, kid, pay attention and grow some character! and, while you're at it, learn the math...you'll need that little skill later in life! Cheers!
