Riding to work this morning and had a typical Sydney moment where I had a car pull out of a side street on my left. A little rude but no biggy. Slightly more of a problem was the guy that followed him. This was more than rude and meant me applying the brakes rather than just backing off a little. Still nothing out of the ordinary. I sat inside the gap for the little to give the guy a good view of my headlight, to make him fully aware of how much of a dick he was. (yeah I know that's not the safest thing to do, but I did it anyway). then the guy flicks on his left indicator My thoughts["he realises what he has done and he is going to move left where the road divides at the next light. Not a bad guy after-all"] Then his right indicator goes on ["OK the guy doesn't know where he is going. Better back off"] So I backed off. Anyway he goes straight through the lights and I get stuck. ["thanks mate"] He disappears and a couple of hundred meters after the lights I realise my indicator was still on [LOL. he was just letting me my indicator was on] Still it got me thinking that if you get a tailgator in an urban environment then erratic indicator operation might be one way of getting them to back off.
