    Saw my life flash by today!

    Well i was on my usual 25 mile drive home from work today and had a bit of a shock.

    Where two main roads join theres a rather large roundabout, as i proceeded round it i was met head on by a pensioner going the wrong way round . Luckily he wasnt going too quick and i had a chance to get the car up onto the roundabout to avoid him! He then gave me a hand gesture and off he went.

    Now i know younger drivers are meant to be worse but i couldnt explain this!

    Not only am i bit shaken by it all i cant believe his cheek to swear at me.

    Luckily the car is ok with no damage and thank god i didnt catch my 6 weeks old wheels!

    Crumbs (for want of a better word) glad you managed to get outta the way! i had a near miss today 2, what is it with numpties on the road, was following a 05 vectra, who split second indicated left, pulled into a cul del sac junction, then as i was just going past him, (level with him) he pulls out nearly taking my door and wing, i throw the my car to the right, slammed my hand on the horn, but cant go to far as cars coming in opposite direction, he stops, i stop, he was like a fag paper away from my car, so i got out and gave him a serious mouthful, about not paying attention, and driving like a ******, his excuse he was following a mate!!! eh!

    Cheers guys.

    To be honest im still a bit shaken now. Luckily the car isnt lowered yet otherwise going up onto the roundabout would have meant destroying the majority of the bodykit.

    I still cant get my head round it though. Just cant understand how the hell you can go round the wrong way!
