When your “almost out of fuel” light has been on for 20 miles, you are running on “fuel saving mode”, then you pass a stationary police car.

Don't you just love .......
It when you're overtaking a car on a clear and open stretch of road and they deliberately swerve aggressively towards you trying to ram you off the road :angryfire

Bronze Volvo S111 RUJ - you sir are a f*cking arsehole!

One would have words with said driver after overtake.. If it was legitimate or aggression you would soon find out by stopping and having a word with the driver. :2up

No excuse for aggression.. :fight

You never know who's in the other vehicle when you get into a bit of an argument.
Might be a mass murderer for all you know. Many people has been killed in such circumstances.

On board cameras are good (and pretty cheap too).

I rode on for a mile or so going over what happened, confirmed that I was safe and clear to overtake and that it wasn't an unsafe move which It clearly wasn't, and that no animals had crossed the road etc.

I pulled in at a lay-by and let them pass to get their reg number.

Twas a family and I overtook them again, shook my head, wagged finger :nono - all non abusive and non threatening and made it clear I had their reg number.

Wish I had a helmet camera!

The amazing feeling of riding with a new front tyre, when the old one was shaped like a chisel
