Re: Respect the Alfa Driver
perhaps its just where i live but i get hassled more in my 156 than my old vw i had. people are more hostile towards me, try to race me, stop me passing etc. i think its the fact that. 1. its a red car 2. it has a silly spoiler, 3. people get a complex about what they drive, its normaly beat up old cars that try to match my speed. like they are making a statement, i guess its all ***** male bullsh1t to be honest. in contrast, higher end vehicles tend to be quite nice about things, often giving a nod or a wave. people with powerful cars virtually never seem to show off. they have no need. smaller less powerful cars seem to have to prove themselves somehow. ironically it is they which are unable to in that situation. silly that.
i was on my way back home tonight, was driving at a speed comensurate with the road conditions. thats all i will say. a car hounded me and came upbehind me fast. i noticed my speed was dropping off so i brought my speed up a bit. not to be a pain i might add. suddenly the road goes to a 40mph speed limit and i am significantly over the limit. as is the car behind me. which i now see is a police car. and so is the one up front. whoooops! he pulled infront of me and didnt do anything. praise the lord! they two police cars then played cat and mouse with each other and drove back along the road at speed. i think i was lucky and got them both on the end of their shift. phew!!!!!!!!!!!!! to be honest they were having fun and i wasnt being silly on the road so think they just couldnt be bothered. nice one!!!!
