    Default Dog's!...lol

    People that drive right up your arse.. i like to call them dog's
    So tonight i pick up the 8 month old from the folk's, now the road's are flooded so a reasonable 50 on a 60mph limit and i can't see the tailight's from the vaux van behind, sticking to the limit and into town a 20mph limit. A round 800yrd's into it i stop as we sat at light's, i get out and go behind and ask "please do me a huge favour bud,back off a little as your a little too close and av a wee one on board", As usual the reply come's "get to fk av left plenty braking distance what you talking about".
    Now i admit i am hot headed with dog's and usualy melt the foot down and away we go but as the wein was in the car than that's not the option here.
    So we continue into the 50mph and suddenly the attention's on knob up the arse, the car in front of me decide's to be polite and allow a car to pass in front, foot to the brake and i do a 60yard skid, guess who passed me on the right hand side of the road, 2 car's in front of mine.

    Could have been very fatefull for the driver of that van or any oncoming car's.

    We all do silly thing's now and again and nobody is perfect, but i can say in all my 18yrs of driving this is the first time ive ever **** myself!

    So a light question relating the topic, what do u do? if you slow down they only get closer, if you speed up they try to keep up and obviously if it's safe to pull over then let them pass.

    I must admit if I've got a car right up my arse I stick rigidly to 1mph UNDER the current limit!
    But you're right, better to let the silly ******s pass you especially if you've got a little one on board.

    I hate this too very much!!!

    I find on the motorway going to work that despite a river of cars and nowhere to go if you did overtake I leave plenty room but get prats who insist on trying to mate with the back of my car. I have a new trick now, thanks to the glorious wet weather that you ought to try.

    I drive close to the verges depending on lane 1 or lane 2 and hit every puddle going to spray them with dirt grit and mucky water. I had a Mini Countryman try it on yesterday on the M8 she got the message soon enough

    I follow the Highway code and slow down by lifting my foot off the throttle, had someone down from 60 mph to 20mph, before they took the hint and back off.

    Lol my part trick as well. Used it with good effect on a 4 x 4 last time. For some reason he didn't want to get it dirty or wet - a chuffing 4 x 4 FFS!

    The one area when Insignia washer jets aren't as effective heh heh,,,,,,

    Does anyone remember the phase we went through when replica Rally cars such as Mk1 and Mk2 RS2000 with the big arch kits were in fashion? I remember people fitting "blinders" as a matter of course, on the real rally cars they were a fog light in case of long reversing stints, on road cars they were driving lights people intended to use to blind inconsiderate drivers, Police used to take a really dim view so many were on quick release wiring in case of a pull as they were dangerous!
