    Default Some one tried to kill me last night!

    Some git tried to kill me last night….

    Tootling down the outside of the M56 cruise control set to 70, nice gentle drive home when a ****** in a red 406 (bald with yellow highlight vest) comes tankin’g p behind me at about a ton headlights a blazin etc. I had some cars inside me so I couldn’t move over. I passed the last car (blue Vec b) and when I had enough clearance checked the mirror (he’s still up my **** ) indicated and started to move over.

    But that wasn’t fast enough for him At the same time he swerved inside me to undertake but I had already committed to changing lanes.



    Then for reason best known to him he swerved into lane 1 to try and undertake again even though the outside lane was clear. But there was traffic there and he was boxed in. Initially I thought He was comin’ off at the next junction about a mile ahead.



    Then He swerves across my backside about 6 “ behind me into Lane 3 again





    Certain expletives entered my mind.

    Then as he gets along side he swerves into the side of me quite deliberately. I had to evade and the ESP kicked in keeping the back end in line eventually…. I’m sure he wanted to kill me.





    I let him go and composed myself for a mile or so before thinking how dare he and thought I’d get his plate and call the cops. But I couldn’t get close enough to get it. The irony is he was tailgating and trying to undertake etc while I just followed at 70. He got to the M53.M56 interchange 3-4 cars ahead of me. I wish I’d had:

    one a camera
    two a implement of mass destruction.

    I'm still badly shaken.. Didn’t want to drive in this morning……Quaking as I type this!

    Glad you're ok mate, what a ******.

    At that speed I know what you mean, its scary cr@p, things go wrong quickly & there is no time to react. The ESP prob saved your bacon.

    Makes your blood boil doesn't it?

    I had a thing just like that a few years back with a red 406, too! Some tool of a rep decided he should be in front of me in 3 lanes of solid traffic on the M40. I'm in the outside lane overtaking, whilst following another car, so nowhere to go, when he comes up behind flashing his headlights, signalling me to get out of his lane. I decide 'I'm fine where I am, thanks' which seems to incense him somewhat and he tries to undertake me. What he neglects to notice is that I have an Astra turbo and he has a crummy 406 repmobile. This means that I can more than match his speed and keep him exactly where I want him i.e. behind me (now that he's pished me off!!!).

    After about half an hour of this he was absolutely bubblin'!!!

    Bet he didn't try to ram you though did he? I could have reached over and opened his car door at 70 mph he got that close! His wing mirror nearly touched mine and I was half in lanes 1 and 2!

    Thats why I'm so upset. I wasn't trying to race, or obstruct...I just wanted to get home. He obviously had an axe to grind.

    At least you can console yourself in the knowledge you've posted the prettiest diagrams in a post since the site began!

    The Truck didn't see the corsa in the blind spot.

    Last night was just malicious. Would love to hear his side/excuse and the view of our on site traffic cops.... What could I/they have done? Short of putting my foot down and cutting up the Vec B there was nothing more I could have done with out upsetting some other road user.
