The reason our insurance is so bloody high
Some idiots just f**k it up for the rest of us,
Yesterday I was entering the suburb I live in off the main road, when this P-plater motorcycle rider was following me REALLY closely. I was coming up to the turn off that I take, and usually i would arc out a bit to the right and take the left turn (the road is about 1.5x as wide as my ute at the most at this point) at which time I notice he has dissapeared from my rear view mirror, and is sitting directly in my blind spot trying to overtake me - on a section of single lane - one way traffic with Kerbs either side. if I had moved 30cm to the right at this point he would have been hit - there was no room for him at all.
Then this morning, driving up to a roundabout on the same road (same width)when the idiot appears again driving down the right side of all the cars im guessing but he was definitely over the speed limit (60), there was a truck in front of me that was pretty close to the right side of the road, and had left a gap on the left side. So as we were slowing down for the roundabout, when there was only abou 3-4m (and closing) between me and the truck, he decides to pass me, swerve through the gap (made me jump on the skids) and then continue overtaking everyone down the left side of the road.
Now Ive only seen this kid twice, and he definitely has not had that bike long, due to his extremely uncontrolled riding on it (braking and accellerating are no way near as smooth as they should be), but one day he will end up between the front of a ute and the back of a truck if he is not careful. and my insurance premiums (18-25yr old) will keep going up.
