Vent or Praise!
Surprising as the behaviour came from a mature lady driver. Happen on unclassified road (click link for map: http://linktrim.com/2yv) This road has farm land either side and at this time of year it is busy for farmers and therefore the road was carrying a volume of agricultural traffic.
Exiting the island off the A41 on to the A518 at Newport, the above mentioned Beemer turned left off the island slightly in front of me. Not a problem. It s 08.05 a.m. and ClassicFM is soothing me. I m relaxed. I am last in a convoy of 5 cars.
Driver sped up behind me and stayed within 5ft of back of car until I slowed right down. Overtook, then pulled in by side of the road, let me pass, then did the whole thing again for miles, following me deliberately onto side roads.

A few junctions north of the M5/M6 interchange on a curved stretch of motorway with a short stretch of slip road merging onto the main carriageway, I was doing approx 70mph in the slow lane and was watching the slip road ready to pull out if necessary for other vehicles, as there was no vehicle in the other lanes. All of a sudden a 4 wheel drive jeep comes charging around the bend doing in excess of 80 mph and onto the main carriageway barging in front of me by squeezing into the smallest of spaces.
An accident waiting to happen. Constant undertaking and cutting in front of people at the last minute. Failure to be aware of surrounding traffic - caused me to swerve out of the lane I was pulling into as he pulled out without checking mirrors etc.
I ve reported this a$$hole to the police (and wouldn t be at all surprised if others he cut up and annoyed hadn t too). He was (badly) parked on the pavement, using his mobile phone. He pulled off infront of me without signalling or looking, causing me to hit my brakes hard. He sped off, pulled right up behind the car infront, then when it wasn t going fast enough for him, he overtook that car and the one infront on the WRONG side of the road, including on the wrong side of traffic islands, driving for at least ...
