Hi

Was in town where i live and was just going home. Now we have a one way system which has always existed but now over a main bridge they have taken away 2 lanes on the approach and left it just as wide which in turn has now led to the odd idiot fleeing up the inside and cutting right in front of you at last min....
So im tootling along in my fabia, before bridge had let one car in front of me and was approaching bridge closely so no room for another car....Or so youd think? I gets to near bridge and this blue audi estate comes right alongside my car wanting in front of me, there is no room...Does he hold back and take heed of the car behind me flashing him cos he is normal and can read the road.....NO!!! This ****, decides to push me in my car so i have to break sharply then flee over bridge and swing from left lane to right lane very erraticly...So im thinking what an idiot!!! Didnt speed up to get close to him but when natural traffic deemed it had a look at male, mid fifties, grey hair, beard, glasses, suit....He sees my car and swings right aiming at my car pushing me into bus lane on road....Now by this time im really annoyed by this pig....So yes I tell him he is a ****ing idiot and tosser!!! which i think im perfectly entitled to do...
As luck would have it he has a lovely website on back of car so rang firm of architects who tell me "oh thats richard" and i tell them he is a potential killer on the roads and well done!!!!
I dont get worked up normally but this was a classic case of ive got a bigger car, youre a woman....I am more important!!! Just shows how sensible this (cant even call him a person) imbecile is...

    Hi Del

    Well you know i give and take, let one or two in but not when they leave it right till lst minute and not when they are as aggressive as this imbecile....Police wouldnt waste their time as they see it between two driver, yes i swore at him after he aimed his car at mine but i was entitled to that....
    You know that is naughty you using your size, i sorry i dont agree with that at all, be courteous whatever youre driving.....

    One of the things that's certain to send me into a full on road rage attack is where drivers leave merging until the last yard.

    Do report him to the police though as they will keep a record and warn the driver if enough people do the same.

    As I now have an old 4X4 I don't even cede an inch and not many are prepared to risk such a heavy vehicle crushing them.

    You dented his male pride Elaine, made him feel stupid although trying to push you into oncoming traffic was uncalled for. Good for you for complaining. You must have been seething!

    I can't stand people who do this too. We had one the other day. OH waited at a roundabout so as not to block oncoming traffic that needed to turn right across our path-traffic ahead stuck at lights with a queue building up. So the guy behind us backs up, overtakes us and blocks the roundabout. Its just so thoughtless.

    I'll let people in Elaine, if they indicate and do it gently, but when they tear up to the end of the merge lane and expect to have room made for them they can take their chances.

    Hi Elizabeth

    Yes I did dent something didnt I but what he got out of it was only a guess...Its scary to think this person is a husband, parent...what a role model NOT!!!!!
    I really do try not to get worked up as it does me no good but occasionally someone pushes the limits and he was just out of order...

    He drives an audi, enough said.
    Them and BMW drivers think they own the roads.
    Guaranteed, anyone doing something insane on the road and it's one or t'other of them


    (I'm standing well back now waiting for the fireworks from said drivers) :lol:

    He can't be a real architect.....i've been reliably informed on many occasion that we all drive Saabs :grin:

    Unfortunately professional qualifications don't stop you being a selfish idiot (personally i'd use a ruder description but its a public forum) , my profession is full of slightly/ fairly arrogant sods many of which aren't the worlds best drivers....thankfully i'm an exception to the rule, even if I say so myself, oh and i don't drive a saab either but I am considering one :roll:
