Had a fun one this morning actually, reminded me how simultaneously ignorant, incompetent, aggresive and dishonest some people can be while driving. (he's probably an idiot when he's not driving too, but he's unlikely to kill me then)
I'm on a roundabout, entering at "6 o clock" and wanting to go to right, so to 3 o clock.
Car is stationary at the junction to my left (9 o clock). As I approach it he suddenly pulls out after looking straight at me, he's going going straight on, to the same exit as me.
I end up next to him while slamming on the brakes and doing an emergency lane change to avoid him. In the process I let out an involuntary 'Oh dear', or words to that effect.... 'kin 'ell or something like that, not all that bad really.
He winds down the window (ped crossing right after the roundabout is red) and pokes his bright red, bulgy veined head out of the window and informs me that he'd like me to stop as "I want a word with you, you little s**t".* I asked why. He then swore blind that he had already been on the roundabout, and that I'd raced onto it, closed the gap on him, overtaken him in the right hand lane, got in front, and then shouted at him.
The thing is, if he'd have hit me he'd have said the same to the police, and promised that he'd been driving ever so carefully and, you know what these lycra idiots are like, he just hadn't been able to avoid me when I'd thrown myself under his wheels. And the police round here would have believed him. That's why I use the camera, it's an insurance policy, not a 'content production tool' like it is for the youtube stars. Not knocking them, just saying that you don't have to upload stuff if you don't want to.
I got to work, had a quick look at the footage, and yep, I was on the RAB, at the bollard between the 'on' and 'off' lanes of the junction he was at when he pulled out.
*He told me to pull into the petrol station 50 yards up the road so we could "have a chat". I said "yeah, sure mate, you first...", waited for him to be blocked in and then left him to it. Got a nice shout of "OIIII, COME EEEEERRREEEEE" as I rode off.
