Coming into work yesterday I was following a large flat-bed lorry (the type building supplies are delivered on with a crane on the back), down the Ruthin Road.
We were doing about 50 to 60, when a car pulled out from a side road. The car behind this one (a Fiesta) was a bit cheeky, and pulled out too. Unfortunately the first car didn't accelerate very quickly.
All the lorry driver really had to do was take his foot of the accelerator, and perhaps brake a bit - but instead he kept his foot down until he was right up the rear of the Fiesta, and then sounded his horn for about 10 seconds or so.
The road then splits into three lanes at a set of traffic light. The fiesta and the other car went into the left hand lane to turn onto the A483 that the Ruthin Road crosses. The lorry kept in the middle lane to go straight on, level to the Fiesta, and I was behind it.
As the lights turned to green the lorry suddenly veered left, making the fiesta brake and take evasive action, then the lorry veered back to the right and continued straight on.
Okay, the lorry driver had the right to be annoyed, but he was driving very aggressively and using his vehicle, a large lorry, as a weapon. Perhaps the car driver had given him the V's or something having had the lorry stuck up his ar5e - I don't know, but I thought someone needed to speak to the lorry driver to let him know his agressive driving was out of order.
So, I telephoned the police - did I do the right thing?
