There was no aggression. The guy ranted, gesticulated, did not approach Snider's car. Calling 911 to report a guy acting crazy on the the road would only inhibit official response to a real emergency the next 911 caller could be waiting to report.

Road Rage is never a good thing to act on, or get involve with up close, we (CC) have to be smarter than that idiot, yes i know its hard keeping your cool at times, but some nitwit's road rage can ruin your whole day if you take it personal. It's better to egress, de-escalate, retreat, ignore. Be Tactically smart, be in control of your Emotions, and don't let a situation control your actions.
Probably illegal carry, never the less.

He deserves a call.
Dispatch and the PD determine and prioritize where they need to go.
911 call is appropriate and discretionary.

I have mixed feeling about this. I think in most cases (8 outta 10) it would cause the person to re-think their situation. BUT you are correct that in some cases, it will push the person over the edge. Good news is that if the person goes wacko, you have additional evidence.

Snider, at the very least you handled the initial aspect of it better than i would have most likely handled it. You only yelled in your car. I may have extended the international "You are number one" sign to him. Other than not calling 911 at least after the incident, I think you did fine.
