Do we haz one?
Seriously, there might be an extremely aggro Prius driver out there. Keep your eyes and ears open and get a plate number if possible, a description of the car and driver.
prius drivers are the next volvo drivers

Any details on the general area the incidents occurred in, color of the car, etc.?
Also, even if these are just close calls, they can still be submitted to the bikex database: http://www.bikexdatabase.com/

Actually the worst are Mercedes drivers. IMO

Maybe that's why they are so impatient?

angle thanks I'd forgotten about bikex. I don't have any details just a brief conversation with someone who mentioned being followed by a hostile Prius driver. I didn't think that much of it but now I'm hearing about a couple more incidents all involving a Prius and a very aggressive driver. It may be just coincidence there are many Prius on the road.

I don't think there are *that* many prius's on the road-- I don't hear of all that many incidents of drivers being agressive beyond just honking or an incoherent yell out the window, but there are at least a few in the last month or so that people were motivated enough to describe in posts and had similar behavior by the prius driver. It's possible that it's a coincidence, but it's also possible there's a connection.

the thing that freaks me out about priuses is that they are silent

Yeah the Prius is a silent killer. Last week I was riding in and Santa Monica this lady in a Prius was trying to pass me by cutting through a construction zone. When she realized I was going too fast she had to cut back in behind me to keep from hitting the cones at the end. Good times.
