Re: 3 Series BMW Drivers
I had a tussle with a BMW 530 who decided that the "merge in turn" sign on the exit from a roundabout didn't apply to him, he could just attach himself to the car in front of him in his lane and the two would merge as one. When I wouldn't let him, he was furious, horns, lights, hand gestures, the lot. He got on the inside of me and lunged across repeatedly trying to get me to swerve to avoid him, but I refused to be intimidated. I was in my couldnt-care-if-dented boring old Rover, so ultimately he realized that tactic wouldn't work and had to veer off at the last moment. By this time I was in red-mist mode as well and it got very bitter - I'm not proud of my driving as we tussled. I was tempted to video his antics on the mobile, but I'd probably get done for using a hand-held phone (not sure of the legality of using it as a camcorder!). He had more acceleration that I had, so would slow down, then as I passed in the other lane, speed up, pull out, slam the brakes, and so on. Thing is, he had a personalised plate so I'll recognise him next time, whereas I was in a pretty anonymous car and I think he did his bullying antics routinely so this was just another day of "other people in my way" to him.
