60km/h since it became a construction zone - used to be 80km/h (and still is a couple hundred meters back). Flow of traffic in the construction zone there typically ranges from 80km/h for people cruising and 100km/h in the passing lane.... No love for the construction workers there.What's the speed limit on that stretch? That Jetta was flying, although still no excuse for that lazy left turn.
The weird part is that if someone thinks you're doing or going to do something unsafe, they'll do something even less safe to "prevent it" or "teach you a lesson".In rush hour had a small work van (bigger than a mini) brake check and cut me off a few times this week. He was behind me originally and didn't like that I changed lanes the same time as he did, I guess. Both make a left change at the same time. So he guns it around me back to the original lane and jumps in front to cut me off and brake checks me. Since I saw him pull the switch back I was ready for idiocy. Ok, so I move over a lane again and he cuts me off again, and brake checks again. I was in a mellow mood and just changed lanes to the right again, to the collectors and he gives up and heads to the express.
Could not agree more. I call them Bully vehicles with little willies. However, I always go with the, "You can be right and also dead right" Most of the time.I had a pickup truck cut me off and brake check me yesterday during rush hour.
Apparently, he didn't like the fact that I didn't pass some slower vehicles, doing 50 in an 80, into oncoming traffic.
I put my 4 ways on because he was coming in hot.
Once the two slow vehicles turned right, and the lane opened into two, I pulled over to let him by.
He decided that just flashing his high beams at me over and over wasn't enough, cut me off, and brake checked me.
Because of that stupidity we both missed the next light.
I rolled down the window, and that's where I found out that I should have been passing into opposing traffic.
If that was the case though, why didn't he just pass all three of us?
The weird part was that once I didn't slow down to let him pass, he couldn't keep up, at least for the next couple of blocks until I turned.
Between that and other things I've seen in the last while, pickup trucks contain the worst drivers now.
