    Just got fingered!

    Hello,

    Drove off for me lunch break onto the A303 (junction to Thruxton circuit) towards Andover (for those who know), and noticed right in the middle of the slip-road a blueish car, equiped with high tech radar, two PCs, on tick-over, ready for fishing.
    Passed by increasing my pace and joined the A303. 30 secs later I was overtaken by a silver mondeo, 3 seconds later I noticed the blueish car on my rear-view mirror speeding after the mondeo and stoped it near the next junction...
    On the way back I noticed numerous radar cars in the area.

    While I was overtaking a slow volvo, a small white-ford-van is on me tail. I pulled out of his way and he fled doing well over 80. I flash him and waved to warn him for the radar spree...
    He slowed down a bit, pulled down his window, stretched out his hand and with style gave me the fingers (I have to admit his style was quite skillfull, reminded me Greek taxi/bus drivers - no offence intented)...

    For future reference, is there a special sign to warn people overtaking about mobile radars? While I don't like speeding, I also don't like people getting unnesessary speeding tickets.

    Cheers,
    Kakourdos

    P.S.: I hope he got done, just because he fingered me.

    Generally thumbs down indicates you need to slow down.
    Or 'patting' the air.

    Although a lot of people just flash.

    Hello,

    Well I was "patting the air" actually...
    That worked all the time back in Cardiff when I was a learned, but on cars comming from the oposite direction.

    Well, I bet he got what he deserves.

    Ciao,

    people are so odd, was in a pub today with a mate after failing to find a job for summer and some wasted fat jolly man was giving us great banter on how it doesnt cost anything to be nice and so on,nice guy gave good chat inbetween stumbling to keep his balance, this is at 4pm mind you. he also claimed we were american but thats besides the point, on walking home i was checking out some random modified ford and the blonde in it stuck her middle finger up at us as they went past :roll: she was ugly so it didn't bother me but still theres no need for this.

    anyway the guy probably thought u were telling him to slow down due to his speed not just warning him about radar traps, i hope he got caught and thought "oh maybe they were warning me about these treaps"
