Saturday was a really nice day, drove up north to look at a new car for someone in my nice new (to me) car, lovely weather and almost empty motorways.
Anyways coming back down having looked at the car, I was in the inside lane doing 70ish with nothing behind me and a Nissan Micra was coming up the slip road ahead of me crawling along. I checked my mirror to see if I could pull across to help but there was an Audi 4x4 alongside me.
Well just at that moment the micra decided instead of staying at the same speed and pulling behind me they would try to get in ahead of me.
Lets just say I'm glad my new car has much better brakes than my old car or else I would have ended up parked in their backseats! Of course this prompted the 4x4 driver to attempt to take evasive action in case I needed his lane!
The worst of it was the Micra driver didn't even seem to notice the fact they had caused two cars to take serious evasive action and nearly caused both drivers to need new underwear! She just carried on at 45mph up the motorway.
As I overtook what did I see? 80+ year old, 6mm from the steering wheel!
God help her if I'd have been driving a works van, in all seriousness I don't think I could have avoided an accident. I've seen what happens when a big van hits a small car - it's not pretty and that was in town not on the motorway!
Suffice to say I've now ordered an in-car dash cam which records 1080p on a 15min loop onto a SD card and the required cabling to hard wire it into the car's electrical system so it comes on when the ignition is turned on.
 The recorder is 720p NOT 1080p[/edit]
