A German trucker has taken road rage to a whole new level
There is an entirely unofficial scale of road rage, which includes everything from a mild tut and shake of the head, to some light shoutiness and dismantling of your car’s interior.
But as a court in Wurzburg, Bavaria, heard this week, one trucker has taken this a step further.
Over a five year period, 58-year-old Michael Harry K fired more than 700 shots at other drivers on German motorways, claiming that he wanted to “teach them all a lesson” about their poor driving.
He’s been accused of five counts of attempted murder in addition to charges of grievous bodily harm after a number of motorists were injured in the shootings. The defendant claimed during the investigation that he had not wanted to injure anyone and only aimed at trucks’ loads.
