Just a story I wanted to share ...
Today DH and I went for a drive. We were driving along a single laned road, doing the speed limit, when all of a sudden this guy towing a caravan screams up behind us and proceeds to drive about a metro away from our car in a 100 zone.
We were approaching a bend, on double white lines, and the guy erratically pulls out to overtake us. As he is alongside us, a truck comes speeding along in the opposite direction, and the guy pulls into our lane and forces us off the road into the scrub.
We were a bit shaken up, but not injured, so we carried on. We see the guy up ahead, as he had been forced to slow down behind a line of slow moving traffic behind a truck. Again, on double white lines, he pulls out and tries to overtake the line of traffic, eventually forcing another car off the road to avoid a head on collision.
We all pull up at a set of traffic lights, and the second car he ran off the road drives around and parks sideways in front of the guy to block him from taking off again. The driver of the second car calmly gets out, walks around to the window of the caravan towing guy and presents his badge to him.
Turns out he was an off duty cop. The caravan driver was arrested and his licence suspended.
Take that, road jerk!
Just wanted to share haha.

Despite losing the rest of our day to going to the police station and making a statement, it was so worth it.
