    Had this this morning with a Fiesta ST. Just HAD to get past me - doing well over a ton by my guess- to end up as the car in front of me for 3 miles. Throbber.

    get one everytime i go out in vdoz.a real pain some enfant in a ren clio or peogeot 206 with bean can exhaust extn. sometimes a real pain even happens in france, but always within 20 mile of landing in the uk, i often simply pull over unless on a clear duel carriage way that i know.or the A350 poole to chippenham which i could drive blindfolded, lovelly hates car because of that.

    Yup I just lurve the race to a standstill these richard heads do.

    There is a particular part of the ring road here where you come off a roundabout and can see the traffic lights half a mile away, it's a 50 limit; as the lights go from green to amber and obviously red next I throttle off and cruise slowly to the lights, where richard head has just locked up to stop as he didn't see the lights change as he 'beat' the Merc off the roundabout. The lights change to green whilst he is stirring about with his joystick / gear knob as I sail past with hardly a breath up to 30 for the next speed limit ahead as richard head screams past as he has 'beat' the Merc again, to get flashed by the camera he hasn't seen. Priceless.

    As I pull up next to them I raise my pinky to illustrate their evident small appendage that is ruling their other head. They doubtless tell their equally thick mates 'i did beat a flash Merc, I did', as they recount their stupidity.

    When I was a yoof I had modded hot hatches and often got challenged to a race. So I'd reply 'ok let's go. To Bala in North Wales, now, via the back roads'. A journey of over 200 miles. Oft reply, 'but I can't go as I have to be home for my tea', or 'I can't afford the petrol', or 'I don't know the way'. Anyone can play traffic light grand prix, or race in a 30 limit.

    Me too. Audi, BMW, new A & C Class Mercs, Ford Sports, Subaru..... and none of them have indicators which work !
    In truth, these drivers display such bad manners that I would not choose to dine with any of them.

    Regards
    John

    Why not just let them pass then, what's the gain in holding them up...?

    Just see it as provocation to endanger yourself, the one in the rush and everyone around.
