    Default G1 ATH ~ Mental case

    I was on the A43 tonight en route from RAf Marham in Norfolk to RAF Brize Norton in Oxon when this idiot passed me in an S class Merc. It's without a doubt the fastest I've ever seen a car travelling in 20 years of driving. I reckon he was somewhere around the 140mph mark.
    Why? Why do people do it? I have to admit it shook me up. Truely shocking behaviour.

    Because it makes them feel big? I don't know why people would risk driving that fast.

    I feel like I should have reported it now because it could have been stolen.

    Not really. Looks like a typical Berk in a Merc!


    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    Why would it shake you up? Serious question.
    Yes the person driving it was probably using inappropriate speed for the road etc, but unless it was a near miss or you didn't see the car approaching why would it worry you?

    I'm not trolling or spoiling for an arguement, I'm just curious.

    Oh, one other point. There's a great theory called Darwinism that usually deals with those sorts of idiots.

    I was in the inside lane approaching the car in front. I was doing 70 he was doing 65 maybe. Checked my rear view well in advance. Nothing there.
    As I was about to manouevre (ie. indicating and checking rear view again and about to look over my shoulder) this thing just appeared because he was travelling at warp speed.
    My instincts kicked in and I aborted.
    I shat my pants. Seriously. Like I say. I've NEVER seen a car travelling so fast. Not even a patrol car. Not even on the autobahns.

    By the way. Maybe it wouldn't have shook you up, but in my life I've cut people from cars before and seen the effects speed and crashes have on the human body. I'm very much in tune with what can happen.
