Why is it that so many aresholes think that not only is it their right to exceed the legal speed limit, but that anyone travelling at the legal limit in front of them (therefore preventing the arsehole from exceeding the speed limit) deserves to be intimidated and abused? At least twice a week I'm subjected to incidents like those described below, and they happen regardless of whether I'm on a bike or driving a car. Is it just me or does anyone else have to put up with this shit continuously. What's more, despite the high number of times this has happened, and the number of times I've reported it to the police, I have never once seen the police pull someone over for tailgating. It seems that the commitment to road safety in Victoria goes as far as paying Tenix to operate speed cameras. A quick read of the court reports in the local paper quickly shows that even people who are repeatedly caught speeding, often by ridiculous amounts, rarely lose their licenses. Instead they're just given a fine (more revenue for government coffers) and let back on the road to continue tailgating and abusing other road users. These were the two incidents that happened to me earlier today: Coming home today along the Princes Fwy towards Geelong I moved into the right lane to overtake a car which was doing about 90Kph. There were a couple of cars ahead of that one, so I couldn't get back immediately, but I was passing the cars on my left. As I was moving past those cars, another car came flying up my arse and sat a very short distance behind me, then proceeded to get even closer. There was still a car on my left, so I couldn't move over, but the arsehole sped up and nearly rammed me. Fortunately I was able to accelerate away and move across. The arsehole passed on my right as I was slowing down from 130Kph. A few minutes later I had just finished overtaking in the right lane and was moving back to the left when yet another arsehole decided that the posted speed limit wasn't fast enough. Arsehole2 actually passed me in the same lane I was in, before I'd finished moving into the adjacent lane. What's more, both arseholes gave me filthy looks - as if not exceeding the speed limit is something which deserves abuse.
