Riding to work this morning I was behind a red P plater in a Mazda 3 going fairly slow. I was in no huge rush so it didn't really bother me. I noticed the driver was doing something (eating Maccas I think) which might explain why he was going slower than normal. Anyway 5 minutes on out of his window comes a maccas bag followed by a cup. They landed on the road infront of me but I didn't hit them. At this point I got rather pissed off thinking Ok i don't mind doing 15km/h under the speed limit but I am not going to sit behind a car dumping rubbish when I am on a bike. Luckily there was an overtaking section up ahead and I got to do my first overtake. Typically of course, the second I go to overtake he steps on it. I refused to fall back in behind him though so continued with the overtake. 250cc acceleration minus the acceleration of a mazda 3 = one slow overtake. I eventually got passed him and rode off into the sunrise, but I suspect he was rather miffed at being passed by an L plater. It just annoyed me, its one thing to litter, it doesn't bother me that much, but to do it with a motorcycle behind you just seems stupid. Sure a maccas cup is hardly likely to cause me to crash but I would prefer to not find out. Anyone else been behind a car chucking crap out? Cigarette butts or anything?
