    Moped driver shoots at group who assaulted him in road rage incident




    Police said the men in the truck got out of their vehicle and assaulted the person on the moped. He then pulled out a gun and fired a round, hitting one of them.

    ATLANTA A wild road rage scene played out in the middle of the day Monday in Atlanta.


    Police said officers were called to Lucile Avenue and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard to respond to a person shot. When they got there, they found out the shooting involved a man on a moped and a group of men in a pickup truck. It stemmed from a road rage incident, officers said.


    Police said the men in the truck got out of their vehicle and assaulted the person on the moped. He then pulled out a gun and fired a round, hitting on of them. Police said the man was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.


    The person on the moped tried to leave the scene, but police said the group in the truck followed him. Police said the truck ended up hitting another vehicle in the process.

    So rather than take their comrade to the hospital for proper care, they chase down the moped guy they assaulted.

    Double tap. In the time it takes for the gang to load their lifeless buddy into the back of the pickup truck, you can put a lot of distance between you and them. You're welcome.

    I don't know how many a "group" is in a pickup truck, but if they are coming after you after shooting one of them, you better believe they had a gun in the truck.

    As a person who rides a moped around town I'd bet whoever this was had the same attitude a bicyclist had downtoewn one day while I was behind him in my work truck, had the faggy spandex and helmet with rear view mirror hanging off it and thinking he can just pedal away and hog the whole lane, "bicyclists have rights too".

    So he kept looking back and "oh, you're too close to me, waaahhhhhh" and I'm like "move over you peice of shit and let people by", when I'm cruising around one of my bikes pedal power or motorized I do it at off peak times and stay out of peoples way, there's a few spots I'm in 50MPH traffic and above but I'm on the shoulder and not out in traffic hogging the whole lane because "I have a right to be on the road too".

    I'd almost bet something of that nature is what happened here, and roadrage is 9 times out of 10 caused BY the person feeling some pushback from the person with the road rage.

    9 times out of 10.

    Just like on the freeway, "Doesn't matter which lane I'm in the speed limit is 65, I'm allowed to be in whatever lane I want, oh nozers, the person behind me is mad and tailgating me, for some reason"

    I "get" both sides (road rage & a person's rights) but my only comment is: Was dueling banjos playing on the radio at the time?

    Early in my Racing Career I was practicing in nearby Baldwin Hills Oil Fields (La Cienega side of Hills above Culver City Studios) and I escaped from a CHP Helicopter (on a 1974 SL 70 Honda trail Minicycle pitbike )

    not really enough info as to why this occurred. [the moped rider got away and the group has offered no reason]

    however, if a group of people are assaulting me, and i'm armed, i would do the same.

    @Auntifa,,,when the shooting starts, don't run, you'll only die tired...
