    Just a rant :)

    This morning coming back from work I was being harrased by a 61 plate Kia Rio ?

    Initially he tried to over take on a 30 road.

    Then at the traffic light grand prix (myself in the fast lane), he failed to get ahead.

    He then tried to get round me on the outside on a roundabout.

    Then finally I gave up and let him have the right lane at the lights.

    Then he goes slow !

    aarrrgghhh !

    :doh:

    That's better :)

    Wasn't that a song by Duran Duran?

    Did you accelerate when he tried? Thats contrary to the highway code if you did

    Oh racing on the highway, you can get disqualified for that

    And why shouldn't he? He has every right to

    Oh you let him use the road! Do you own it?

    Get a life, what does it matter!

    He was probably just jealous of your car and had to try to prove something .

    This happens to me all the time. Usually BMW or Audi drivers. The idea that driving is some kind of competitive sport seems to have taken hold in a major way. I blame Clarkson.

    Unless you are doing the same and holding them off, why the hell can't they get past you?

    They tailgate on twisty single-carrigeway roads lurching in and out desperately looking for overtaking opportunities which clearly do not exist.

    You're obviously driving too slowly and causing an obstruction. Get a move on.

    Who said anything about speeding, it appears you crawl around about as fast as a steam roller...with caravan in tow...
