Walk away when "it ain’t worth it"

True story: I'm jogging south on McDowell when I see two cars stop abruptly. Right after this, a car that was behind them turns around and pulls over. A couple of guys get out of the first cars and are road raging and walking toward each other. A young man jumps out of the third car, a quite beat up clunker, and yells, "It ain't worth it!" The ragers continue moving towards each other. The young man walks halfway across the street and yells again "Hey, It ain't f^^%%ing worth it, it ain't worth it!", while staring furiously back and forth at the rages, daring them to defy his logic. At which point they finally decide that, after all, it isn't worth it, and they get in their cars and leave.

Are you as heroic as that young, scruffy, kid? Can you chill out and remain courteous or does driving bring out the worst in you? Please "check yourself before you wreck yourself."
