Coz I never had this problem in my old 164!
In the past month, I've had approximately 5 near misses!
I'm begining to wonder if a 'Klingon Cloaking Device' is fitted as standard on my car
Had a close call on a roundabout a couple of weeks ago with a van that just shot out in front of me... And again about a week later on the same roundabout (Clifton's) but this time it was a motorcyclist!
A few other random close calls but an incident on Sunday was the nearest to a major accident yet!
I was driving down the A2, on route to the coast when I passed the M25 junction.
As I started climbing the hill towards the Bluewater junction, I passed a 'pimped up' red Escort which was joining the A2.
By the time I'd reached the Bluewater turn-off, I realised the Escort was along side me in lane 3.
The next few seconds were the scariest I've experienced for a while...
With no warning whatsoever, he suddenly accelerated to a point just in front of me and then swerved across my path (whilst braking heavily!) causing me to slam the anchors on; I'm fairly certain that there may have been the slightest of contact, although later, I couldn't see any evidence.
He drove across all 3 lanes, only just making it onto the Bluewater slip without clipping the grassed area!
Even more worrying was the fact that he had a kid strapped into a baby seat in the front, his wife/GF in the back sitting with a toddler... What the hell was he thinking?
I'd like to think he didn't perform the above on purpose, but I am beginning to get a little paranoid about driving a 'sportier' looking car!
