Driving Special Snowflake yesterday...
DH and I were driving home yesterday along the A-road that goes past our village. It's a single carriageway but a nice wide road, so people do often overtake if someone is going slow. Most people overtake when there is space and it is safe to do so.
Not SS Tooimportanttowaitbehindanyone!
I was driving along quite happily, noticing that there were a lot of cars coming the other way quite slowly. Then suddenly I realized one of the cars heading towards me was pulling out of their lane into mine. No indicator, no flashing lights - he just pulled out and began overtaking.
I braked and pulled over to the side, and managed not to hit him but it was pretty close.
In my rear-view mirror I could see him just merrily driving down the centre of the road, rather like a motorbike doing that 'filtering' manoeuvre, overtaking all the cars going his way and forcing all the oncoming traffic out of his way as he went along. Still no signal or anything. It's possible he was planning to turn right at the next lights, but the next lights were about half a mile away.
I really hope he met a police car.
