I have to say, of all the aggressive driving I've seen, about half of it has been ute drivers... I don't know what part of being in a ute compells people to speed, weave and just generally be reckless, but it worries me! Unfortunately today I had a near miss with one of those ute drivers. They were towing a trailer as well as having the tray loaded, so that would have been very nasty, had we collided. Imagine a road with 2 lanes in either direction. I was cruising along at 60, minding my own business when out of nowhere the ute driver in the right lane of our side of the road suddenly turns to get into the Shell on the other side of the road- no indication, nothing. The thing that made it a near-miss was that he realised he was about to be run down by oncoming traffic (since he was turning right) and braked suddenly. Great. I didn't have time to brake so I swerved left and squeezed between the side of his ute, and the car that was passing in the left lane, which I think worried them a lot, but got past ok. For someone who never lane splits it was very scary! And that's my Near Miss. Damn you ute driver!
