    Exclamation Vectaru saved my life!!!!!

    It is official. I LOVE my car.

    Pulling away from traffic lights tonight behind an Astra who seemed to be taking his time and not very keen to go above 45, I decided to pull out and pass him. As I drew alongside him, Mr Astra decided either

    a) He wanted a race
    or
    b) he just didn't want to be overtaken

    ..................and began accelerating............ordinarily, I would have become a little ticked off, slowed down and pulled back in behind him. However, as I had pulled alongside him, the cars which had been behind me had moved in closer to him, leaving me with nowhere to tuck in. Seeing approaching headlights, I put my foot down to pull past him.........and he matched my speed. Realising the approaching car was getting nearer, and in a bit of a panic, I dropped a gear (don't tell Drinky about the noise she made!!!) floored it and my gorgeous girl soared past him.

    First time in a long while that I have been PROPERLY scared behind the wheel. If I had had my wits about me a bit more, I would have pulled him over and had words, but hindsight is a wonderful thing. Some people should NOT be on the road.

    Made me think though...........would have been different outcome if I had been in my little 1.6 Astra................

    What is wrong with people? Give them a set of wheels and it's all one big competition to see who can be the biggest tw@.

    Glad you're OK and had the presence of mind to boot past this idiot. I dread to think what may have happened to a less clued up driver.

    Deep breath, move on.....

    Here Here...

    Went out for a drive tonight and absolute dick heads driving around at the moment.. some examples

    Example 1
    I'm driving down a 30 mph road at 30mph or 31mph.. BMW Z4 pulls out of a side road right in front of me, making me brake hard to prevent going into the back of it.. Remember I'm only doing 30mph... they then brake, as if to say "get off my tail" and immediatelly pull in to a driveway, without any signal.

    Example 2
    I'm driving along another 30 mph road with no cars on my side of the road. On the opposite side their are cars parked intermittently. A guy coming in the opposite direction decides to overtake these cars, which is fine. I expected him to pull in behind the next set of parked cars to allow me to continue along my clear stretch of road. BUT, oh no, **** me, he just carries on expecting me to stop !! Well I didnt and made him reverse back !! Cheeky bar steward...

    Are these guys Blind or what... Takes the pleasure out of a leasurely drive, if you let it....
