Coming home from work through the severn bridge tolls. It's usually a bit mad as you go through, especialy at rush hour. So i go steady and try to slot in with the traffic till is settles down.
Im in the center section heading for the middle lane a lorry with a car behind in nears side lane. mad feckers in the off side lane willy waving seeing how fast they can go before braking hard for the normal speed car in front.
the car to my Left just pulls out to over take the lorry. No indicating, no mirror check, no looking over the shoulder. Im about level with the middle of the car when i relise whats happening.
Car in front so cant go foward, I'm not stupid enough to just pull out into the off side lane. So grap a handful of brake. i can honestly say how in never went over the bars and how we avoided contact i can only guess.
I know it might been the fear talking, but it was close i just dont know how he didnt have me off.
Now im angry so im fully intending to kick his mirror off an start booting his door. I get level and its an old boy and his wife. He was completly oblivious to it all. If id done anything it might just scare him into crashing or get a secound chance at me, again.
So i just shake my head and continue home. Its been playing on my mind and i keep thinking if that had gone the other way i wouldn't be writing this now.
Maybe its time to get in a car as much as i hate to say it.
been knocked off a few times over the years mostly at town speeds though so just bumps brusies and a broken knee and hand. But this was a game changer type hit.
Could i have read the road better? Better positioning maybe?
All coments welcome.
