Yesterday afternoon on my return from work I was quietly minding my own business making good progress along Waterworks rd (suburban thoroughfare, 2 lanes each direction, comfortable sweeping bends, occassional traffic lights)... and the lights infront turned red. There was a red Getz in front of me in the left lane and a white ute (complete with compulsory accesories - toolbox + cattle dog) in the right lane. Given the traffic conditions I decided it was prudent to slip between them to avoid any potential rear-ender (nothing visible behind me yet) and wait just in front of the Getz - BUT... as I slowed to a crawl and headed for the gap the Getz (window open, doof-doof straining the underpowered stereo) made a last minute dash to the right to try and block me (perhaps I'm being generous - Maybe his intention was to cause me grievous injury? who knows?). All he succeeded in doing was ensuring that our wing mirrors tapped very lightly (at a speed of perhaps 1kph!) - at which point he yelled out some exclamation of abuse indicating clearly he believed me to be at fault here. When the lights changed I made a hasty (but not reckless) exit and held a good speed of 70-75kph (it s 60kph limit) - only to find a couple of minutes later this guy roar past me at 80++ once the Getz had finally reached that speed and cut in (Where's the revenue squad when you need them eh?). I figured this was a p*ssing contest to be avoided and pulled over pronto at the next shops to get some supplies and let Mr Loser be on his way!! Does this kind of thing happen often? Is there a better strategy for dealing with guys like this?
