Remember that famous scene from Fried Green Tomatoes involving Kathy Bates' charachter Evelyn Couch in which she rams a VW Bug six times because two young ladies took her parking spot? Yeah, well, apparently the tactic of ramming someone's car out of a spot totally works in real life. Is it worth the damage to pride and property just to get a spot a few feet closer to the front door of Best Buy? Hell yeah! Towanda!

Check out the scene from the film after the jump for a play-by-play comparison.

      I have to agree with No. 3 comments. This scene is Both idiotic and sad. It seems civility is getting rear in American society these days.
      Twenty or more years ago the immature younger baby boomers at least had the World War 2 generation to guide them or teach them to act in a civil and mature manner.
      The World War 2 generation is mostly gone now. And sadly the baby boomers are not mature or ethical enough to lead the younger generation X and Y people to even act properly in public or in many cases the workplace. Thus you will see more and more cases of road rage or the above incident happening in the future. I don't believe this lack of moral values in todays generation( people from 16 to 60) helps the US automaking or manufacturing industry out either

      Too bad the video doesn't start a little earlier. It's hard to tell, but it looks as though the red car was waiting patiently, but couldn't pull into the spot until the first car drove off. Meanwhile, the while car just shows up and takes the spot. (At least, that's the way it seems to me.) Sure, there's no excuse for ramming another car. But the _desire_ to ram the other car ... well, I can identify with that. Who knows - if I was driving an old beater, I might actually do it now and then :)

      You know.....I always said that if something like this happened to me I would tow them with my winch :)

      Lucky for them it never happened as the old Landie would have gladly complied with towing up to 10,000lbs out of any spot, hehe.

      That is frightening, but common in English cities. London commutes are expensive, and cause people on the edge to take it out on the innocent. The woman in the red car is a danger to other drivers, and I hope severe legal action was taken against her by the authorities.

      On a note about bad drivers, George Weller, the elderly driver to plowed into a crowd of people at the Santa Monica Farmers' Market, was sentenced to probation. The judge and jury felt he deserved prison (and so did the public), but his old age (eighty-nine) and poor health stopped that from happening.

      No matter what colour of car, both drivers are seeing red. What differance does it make as to whom is right or wrong? Both are wrong for turning the episode into nothing more then what ends up to be "a video of stupid people being silly."

      #15 are you retarded? This didn't happen in the US.

      You know, just because you have a few anecdotes about recent events where people have behaved badly doesn't mean society is becoming more uncivil. That's a logical fallacy.

      Her insurer is going to screw her over for all she's worth (and rightly so). Think of the insurance premiums she's going to have after that...assuming she ever gets her license back.

      ["Lines are lines and whoever has been waiting the longest deserves first service. Period."]
      I agree, but it doesn't matter who's turn it was. Nothing that excuses that kind of barbaric behavior.

      We have the advantage of seeing this from an overhead camera. The driver of the car on the left may have not been able to see that another car was waiting for that spot on the other side of the road. Her visibility could have been blocked by the other cars. Or, she could have thought that the driver on the right was letting the driver out of the parking spot. There were no directionals being used on either car.

      Both funny and sad at the same time. What happened to civility? Student getting tazed in a school library and protesters being trampled over by police men on horses. Now women head butting bumpers over a parking space?
