To the ar*ehole driving the Range Rover today...

...what are you on buddy? I'm out on a training ride on my bike and I come to a small village (Standon) where I'm about to go up the little high street and turn left at the end. You reverse out in front of me - that's OK, I wasn't that close - but then you slowly pull away and then dawdle in the road. I get fed up waiting and ride past you, only to see that although you have a very expensive brand new Range Rover, you don't have a hands-free kit, which you are showing off by talking down a phone which you have up against your ear . As I go past, I cop a good look and shout out 'nice to see you're on your phone mate'. I turn left and as I pull away, you roar up behind, leaning on your horn - continuously. You overtake me, leaning on your horn continuously and then drive off up the road, leaning on your horn continuously. I think you're a w4nker, so I chase after you and bloody well nearly catch you - doing 30mph sprinting up the drag on the A120 out of the village - yes, I was that p*ssed off. Couldn't quite make it, sadly, although my gestures would leave you in no doubt as to what I thought of you.

Anyone know a ***** who drives a funereal-looking Range Rover with a plate like N18 NPP, living near Bishops Stortford?

How about a nice new paint remover re-spray?

Funny you should say that Nev, I have had it with pricks like him who do wrong, and then give ME a hard time for it!

I believe there is a way of getting his home address from his number plate, am I right? Don't worry, I won't do anything silly - I'll just flyer all his neighbours with a description of what he did and write on his car in shaving foam 'hello everyone, I am the ******** on the phone who doesn't give a sh*t'.

Re: To the ar*ehole driving the Range Rover today...

If you've got the reg, call up your local Plod station and grass him up. Happened to a friend of mine. He got home after one or two overtaing manouvres that must have annoyed someone and fifteen minutes after he got in there was a knock on the door from the boys in blue wanting a word in the back of the car. No tickets or amything just a very stern one way conversation
He changed his driving style for while after that.

Hmm, not a bad idea. I am not exactly sure of the number plate. It was something like that though. And I think he lives in the area because he'd just been in the post office.

As seen on "Vicar-forum.com"
"Dear Lord, Forgive me for what I have done this lunchtime. I was happily driving along after posting a letter to the Bishop about health and fitness in the church, when some chav, I think thats the word, on a bicycle I think came up to the side of the car that the parishoners so gratefully provided to get me around the parish and visit all the ladies who are at home all day, and proceeded to verbally abuse me with signs and language. The cyclist then proceeded to overtake me near the duck pond. The ducks went scattering and I was forced to hang back as this cyclist then slowly went along the road, I was almost late for my 1pm appointment with the delightful Lady Mucka. I touched my horn to get this lads attention as I thought he looked ill and perhaps that was the reason for his gestures and slow pedalling. By the time I got to the lady's house I was only fit for a lie down..."

What they've all said - suggest a word with the local plod may be in order. A quick check shows N18NPP as a Silver Chrysler Voyager whereas N8NPP is a Black Range Rover.

Bloody hell, just phoned the police, they logged it and said if it went any further, would I be prepared to stand up in court? Yes, says I!

Got the make/model from a free RAC check

Suspect the vehicle is 'known' hence the plod response - if so suggest you don't take matters into your own hands

I certainly won't take it into my own hands - and if this guy has 'previous' for 'whatever', he could be the local gangster, hence the stinking attitude problem. I guess if it goes to court, he'll find out my address!

But he bloody deserves to, he was a right git!

Could be another Kenneth Noye

Max - unless this guy walks into a police station and confesses - you can safely assume that no action will be taken....

A quick check with his mobile phone provider will demonstrate the time he was on the phone, and a positive ID, from our upstanding member of AO.

Guilty as charged M'lud.
