There are so many things very wrong in the world that being bothered by something like this seems absurd.

Ido wonder if here you wanted to act, have you acted at all about lets say money in politics, global warming, NSA spying, world huger, corporate greed or whatever you might consider a major issue. If not ,why not, why do we act on insignificant things and when it matters we just give up?

Gallagher's "jerk" darts

The comedian Leo Gallagher once proposed that every driver be issued a dart gun with rubber-tipped stick-on darts labeled "jerk".  When someone does something that miffs you, shoot the car with your dart gun.  When the police see a car with three or more "jerk" darts, they pull it over and issue a ticket.

[Countermeasure: keep your car as dirty as possible so the darts don't stick.]

Max wondered: ... about pulling up alongside him at the next light and asking him how he thought the world would look if we all followed his lead, but the opportunity never presented itself.

Probably just as well.  In the USA you're likely to get shot if you do something like that.
