On my journey down from the NE today I had a most pleasurable experience....
I was on the A19 sat at 80 mph on cruise control, driving along merrily (no, not merrily as in had a drink merrily!! )
I was in the outside lane (of two) as I was about to overtake a car. I was only going a bit faster than him so I was slowly passing by him. Looked up in my rear view mirror and saw a black BMW X5 right up my a**e!!! Was still passing the car so couldn't pull in. X5 still up my a**e.
As I didn't want him on my a**e any longer, I gave the throttle a squirt to get past the car so I could pull in - wasn't in the mood for playing with him! I pulled in and he shot past.
About 10-15 seconds later I saw a marked police Volvo appear at what looked like some sort of side road, wanting to join the dual-carriageway. After slowing down a little bit (just to be sure) I pulled over to the outside lane to let him pull out to join (I know, I know - goodie two shoes!! LOL). The X5 had also seen him and slowed right down as well.
He joined the carriageway and zoomed past me and pulled in front of me but behind the X5. "Oh, oh" I thought, he's going to pull him. Sure enough, at the next layby he pulled him over!!! I almost wet myself as I passed by!! LOL.
He must have had a vantage point from where he had been and I reckon he was using the VASCAR box to measure speeds. I was hoping that he wasn't using a camera as my peak speed was in the 80's as I squirted it to get back in to get the X5 off my a**e. But saying that, the X5 must have been going it some to have caught up with me, from nowhere, so it was probably the X5 that he had targeted all along!!
Couldn't help but laugh to myself as I passed by they guy - that'll teach him to drive right up someone's a**e and tailgate them!
