Virginia's law regarding "missiles" hurled from vehicles is in the news again today after a conflict between motorists escalated into coffee throwing at a Chantilly area intersection. Allan Tat Le, of South Riding, was charged with one felony count of unlawfully throwing a missile at an occupied vehicle.

It brings up an interesting topic for conversation: Road Rage. We all have probably felt it to at least a small degree at some point, if not in whopping daily doses. How do Focus on Fairfax readers cope with their own stress levels while negotiating the region's traffic messes? Why aren't missiles more regularly launched? And please if you have suggestions to help the rest of us chill out when the blood begins to boil on the Beltway, share them.
