Anger is a is a natural emotion, a common response to frustrating or threatening experiences or when a person thinks he has been injured or mistreated. Mix anger, driving and maybe alcohol and you have a dangerous cocktail. However, it can be controlled. Instead of stopping road rage, we can render it less harmless. I think I have found the perfect control mechanism—paint balls.
Every driver, on a volunteer basis, of course, would be issued a paint ball gun with a special color of paint. If we use the colors found in a crayon box minus white, there are 63 colors. Remove black and white and that leaves 61. When a driver feels road rage, the driver can shoot the offending driver who may or may not shoot back. If the car is the same color as the paint, the driver will have to aim for a tire or window. When the police see a car with more than five colors, they would issue a citation for reckless driving.
We should try this out in cities like Los Angeles or New York City for a beta trial. If all goes well, the technique can be adopted nationwide.
