    Every day on my way to work I have to get off the A14 and turn right at a roundabout to go into town. The lanes off the A14 are clearly marked, RH lane for Kettering &amp; Corby (about four o'clock), LH lane for Corby only (about two o'clock). Every morning there is quite a lot of traffic in the RH lane to go to Kettering so some people go up the left hand lane and cut you up on the roundabout to get across.  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':angry:'>

    If I am at the roundabout and can tell a car is going to cut across I try and have some fun, keep right along side the car at the same speed until the Corby turn and until the other car runs out of road and has to go to Corby. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'> It is two miles till the next roundabout.

    I did it this morning to a BMW528 who overtook me and two other cars in my village, in a 30 zone, through a school crossing area. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/crazy.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':crazy:'>  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/butbut.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':butbut:'>  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/hmmm.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':hmmm:'>  He then proceeded very leisurely along the A14, so I went past him, he then cut me up getting off of the A14 so I sent him to Corby! <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    It's quite a joke at work, first thing we say in the morning is &quot;Did you send anybody to Corby?&quot;
