In New York City, patience runs pretty thin. Because there are so many cars, all with places to go, people can get testy with each other. One New Yorker certainly took his road rage to the next level.

YouTuber Coby Persin shared a video on Twitter of what happened when he and a friend posed in front of a BMW, thus blocking New York City traffic:

Amongst the honks and yells from annoyed passersby, one man eventually came up to the car and bashed the windshield with a bat.
