Why do some poeple hate being over taken and end up putting them selves and you in a potentially dangerous situation??
today i was enjoying a....shall we say sprited drive on some quite roads that i know very well
anyway after a few miles of completely deserted road i came behine a rover 25 that was stuck behind a tractor and trailler.
knowing the road as well as i do i knew that there was only two places that either of us could get passed the tractor safely within the few miles
so i sat back a bit then as we were coming up to the first over taking point the guy in the rover got into a good position to see the road ahead after the next sequence of bends and over take if it was clear
excellent someone else that knows the road as well. it was clear and the rover pulled out to overtake so i went into second and waited behind the tractor watching the road ahead.
i waited until the car in front was pretty much passed the tractor (his bonet was ahead of the tractor bonnet)
being a long straight and the road still being clear i pulled out and soon caught the guy up (well he only had a 1.4 bless)
he looked as if he was going to pull in as his two left wheels crossed the white line seeing the road was still clear i was going to pass him too.
but then he moved back over and stayed on the wrong side of the road until he saw a car coming the other way.
he obviously didn't want me to get passed???
lucky for me when he moved over there was still enough space for me to get passed.
in the end my second manouver was still executed safely i.e the car coming the other way didn't have to slow down etc but i just don't understand what the guy in front was trying to achieve?
he stayed on the wrong side of the road for about 10seconds holding me up as i don't think his little car would go any faster.
he obviously knew the road as well as i did beacuse he prepared for the over take two or three corners back he would have also known that there was an up-hill straight thats about half a mile long just up the road where he wouldn't have been able to stop me getting passed...unless he wanted to run me off the road.
i wasn't really pissed off just couldn't quite fathom his motive.
i've had quite a few people put their foot down as i pull out to over take but never block me by driving on the wrong side of the road.
has anyone else had someone do the same thing?
