oboogie: And yet a few drug driving, joyriding boy racers never tar all drivers....how odd.
I'm always worried that "indicate" looks like "dick 'ead" when lip read by a motorist who doesn't know what the little orange lights are for. I may well think that they're a dick head, but I'll keep that to myself.
I think I enraged a driver today actually. I was overtaking stationary traffic on a one way street, as I passed a Bentley (posh round 'ere) it started to roll forward, and moved right, towards me, pushing me towards the parked cars. So I slowed down, let it reach the back of the car in front, then when it stopped I started to overtake again. I looked in and the driver had a phone in one hand and was opening a bottle of water with the other. So I gave him the withering "I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed" stare as I went past. Disappointed in him for not looking in his mirrors before pulling away and for not holding the steering wheel. Then I heard him start beeping his horn, I assume at me for daring to look at him, but the driver of the car in front had, by sheer coincidence, stopped for a few seconds to let a very elderly woman get out of the car, so it looked like Mr Bentley was beeping his horn at the struggling elderly woman.....which meant all the pedestrians and other drivers also gave him the "shut up, you idiot" look
As for the insurance scam conspiracy above......how exactly do you deliberately ride inches in front of a bus? The bus driver is following, he's the one deciding the distance.
