I don't normally whinge about other drivers, but today a Commodore driver took both of our lives in his hands with his idiocy.
I was driving home on a narrow road thru a forest, came across a Commodore P Plater doing about 80 or so in the 100 zone. It was a pretty stocker looking car, so I checked the road ahead, indicated, and started passing it.
Fortunately I was in a fairly pumped up mood from work, so I had the car in third and was winding past 4 thou RPM when I realised the idiot had planted his foot and was trying to race me. There were oncoming cars ahead, and this stage my rear bumper would have been at his front bumper. The Focus pulls pretty well at high revs and managed to clear the Commo before I had to merge back into the correct lane, obviously because I already had a run on him (this isn't a Focus can out run a Commodore post).
I kept my foot down to clear the car, and he stayed with me to about 140 or so, but eventually backed off, I think his girlfriend was going nuts at him in his car.
In a situation like that, it would have required violent braking to slow down to get behind his car (especially if he slowed down to block me further), when normally I would have cleared the car without a thought. Actions like are just plain stupid, especially if there was an accident, I'd probably be landed the blame - is word against mine, and the consquences of an accident would have been so high (swerving off the road would have gone straight into trees).
He wins my Smacktard (tm) Award for this month.
