Have you experienced bad drivers who cut you up, overtake at dangerous places, or just sit on your tail before turning their headlights up full before they overtake? And so on? I was driving to work last week on the first day of the thaw, still slightly apprehensive on roads that were turning from snow and ice to slush. I was leaving Penshurst at 30 mph (the limit in built-up areas as we all know, hopefully, and put there for a very good reason), when an electric blue mini, impatient at my speed, overtook literally just before a bend in the road. Incredibly dangerous, and it narrowly missed an oncoming car whose driver must have had a terrible fright. The mini then drove off at high speed towards Tonbridge. Not much any of us can do about bad driving, but I just hope that the driver of GJ55 EUM might one day, sooner rather than later, come to realise how near manslaughter that kind of driving could potentially be. The roads are not a computer game, and real flesh is soft and incredibly vulnerable to real cars!
