how often have you driven on a dual carriage way and found some one stuck in the outside lane at a slower speed with an empty LH lane.

People should read the Highway code and move over

do you remember recently the Woman who drove down the A12 at a very slow speed

Totally agree, if this happened? Incidentally your own aggression shines through!

The culprit should be found and interviewed. I'm sure he would have an opposing version of what happened that day but as usual some people only believe what they read.

Fortunately there are always two sides to every story and opinions of what happened are going to differ and the police can only act upon actual evidence, with emphasis placed on independent witness evidence, and not on here-say or the word of one motorist.

How can an act of bad driving justify someone intimidating them by shouting, swearing and veering towards their car?

Without being there this is a tough one to judge. The only thing we can be sure of is that the owner of the KA was overly aggressive. This may well have been a provoked reaction to the other individual's poor driving skills, or he may have simply been a chav idiot who will probably soon end up dead in a ditch - hopefully without taking someone elses life with it.
I almost rear-ended someone recently because they were doing 40mph on the A120 dual section and when I went to overtake some moron on a bike came past at about 100mph. (You know what it's like when they come off the mcdonalds roundabout).

In the context you used you should have said too many words and not to many words. It's so important to understand the meaning of the English language. Incidentally it might surprise you but all words do have meanings, why not try looking them up in a dictionary, that is is you have one! Also, there is no need to use double commas and there's no such word as u, perhaps you meant you? Finally when using abbreviations such as g p it should be capitalised, eg; GP.

Hope that helps.

I think if it is an emergeny you are permitted to use a phone whilst at the wheel and if the driver was that worried why not slow down and let the idiot drive off but make a note of the number and pull over and report it. If it happened between 4 and 4.30 then no doubt theres plenty of witnesses around. HOWEVER as others have said there are two sides to every story and one does wonder why this has taken a month to reach the press. I do not agree with aggressive driving but I will freely admit to commenting to myself and swearing under my breath at numpties who hog the outside lane when the left hand lane is clear for example coming out of Colchester on Clinghoe Hill there are always a large number of vehicles who sit doing 30-40 in the right hand lane from the "silly Isles" as I call them right the way up to the Wivenhoe turn when the left hand lane is empty. Perhaps the sign could flash "Keep left if lane is clear" rather than the usual information which can be seen everywhere.
