Much like my desire to buy a motorcycle dies every few months when I see one that's wiped out on the interstate.

While I don't know your daily driving patterns, I might suggest getting a motorskooter/motorcycle for travel within the city, and use your car on the interstate.

I've accidentally bumped into pedestrians numerous times, even after loudly excusing myself. These accidents do happen, even when I'm walking my bike through a crowded area. Decking someone for an accident is NOT the way to handle the situation. Besides, you don't know if the other person is well versed in martial arts or armed.
