Two Metropolitan Transportation Authority employees were arrested in separate incidents this weekend.
According to police, Jason Parker, 25, assaulted another driver and smashed the man’s car windows with a bat last Wednesday.
Andrew Schreier was behind the wheel when he pulled alongside another car, pulled out a gold badge, and said “I’m a cop, and I’ll give you tickets,” according to Nassau County police.
The 26-year-old suspect was involved in a road rage incident with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus driver shortly before 8 p.m., police said.
Of the nearly 4,000 drivers polled nationwide, 58 percent said they experience rage while commuting and it’s women who are more likely to fly off the handle.
The cab driver said he was attacked Wednesday night near 16th Street and Avenue C in Manhattan after an angry driver accused him of cutting him off.
The bill is named after Jessica Rogers who was just 16-years-old when a road rage accident left her paralyzed from the chest down in 2005.
Officials say the injuries sustained by Fairfield officer Gerald Veneziano — who had just recently returned to patrol duty after being shot in a road rage incident while he was off-duty last year — and Sgt. Christopher Oswald were not considered serious.
A Queens College student has been convicted of criminally negligent homicide in a 2009 road rage incident. Evan Potts, 24, of Oceanside, was acquitted Monday by a jury in Nassau County of the more serious charge of manslaughter.
There were fireworks in a Long Island courtroom Wednesday, as attorneys for the suspect in an explosive road rage trial claimed the victim had drugs in his system.
