    Exclamation Nearly ran of the road this morning *rant*

    First of all I'm sorry for ranting I don't usually do this but...

    On the way to work this morning I arrived at an island which I get in the left hand lane to go straight on. Someone in an escort gets in the right hand lane and guess what ... wants to go straight on as well. So he guns it I'm just like I can't be bothered so I don't react. He then cuts right in front of me nearly taking my front bumper with him. I jam the ankers on and give him some horn action to show my appriciation of nearly rearranging my front end. He then starts breaking really heavily and swerving into my path as I try and go around him. He keeps doing it until we eventually came to a stop on the island. He then drove off. unfortunatly in my direction and kept breaking really hard. I backed right off thinking I love my no claims and my bumper thanks.

    BUT WHAT A COMPLETE WONKER HE GETS IN THE WRONG LANE CUTS ME UP AND THEN TRYS TO CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. Believe me the island I was on is very very busy and I was scared someone was gonna go into me with this tit causing me problems.

    Again sorry for ranting but I gotta let off steam before I go round to where he works (over the road from where I work) and do something I don't think I'll regret.

    Must be something with Escort drivers.

    A few years ago when I had my first Mk4, I was coming along a 2 lane road, set of lights where people are usually turning right, so everyone stays in the left lane. Now, as I watch the road more than 2m from my bonnet, I saw that the road was clear in the outside lane, so I cruised on at 50mph (the limit on that road). Pass the junction and this Escort in the inside lane cuts right out infront of me doing 30mph or so, then slams the brakes on. I hit the brakes - instant skid, nearly took the arse off the Escort and ended up in the wrong side of the road.

    Thankfully, there was a Police car going the other way that saw it happening. He turned, passed me (I was still hanging back from the randomly swerving and braking Escort who's driver was going apeshit in the seat) and stopped the Escort. I just beeped and waved as I passed.

    Wierd thing was, I was doing the speed limit on a two lane road, and the Escort driver had his family in the car. Fat wife and 3 or 4 kids rattling about in the back. Was he looking a claim?
