What a cheeky bloke.
Seems like everyone in Russia have a dashboard cam. Man, there are tons of car ride videos from over there.
That is definitely British English in that article.
And for the driver,
Anyone got any good stories about a time when karma nailed another driver who was ******* them off? I have a pretty good one.
Driving to work last year on County Home Road (north of Cedar Rapids/Marion) and it was coated with about 1/4"-1/2" of ice. 35-40 mph was about as fast as I, and most other drivers on the road, felt comfortable going.
So I'm driving along nervously, the traction control indicator is blinking on my dash almost constantly, and I look in my mirror and this chick in a brand new Maxima is so close I can't even see her hood in my mirror and she's flailing her arms like a crazy woman. Then she starts flashing her hands in the window and I can see her mouthing the words,"FIFTY-FIVE. FIFTY-FIVE."
I am not a confrontational driver at all so I was content to just chuckle and write her off as a moron. Finally she passes me and flips me the bird, which I uncharacteristically return to her, and proceeds to tailgate and pass two or three more vehicles in the same fashion.
As we approach the intersection with 380 it splits from two to four lanes and, as her tailgating has not gotten her very far, we end up almost right next to each other at this point. I slow and come to a nice, safe stop. She slams on her brakes, flies through the intersection, does a complete 180 and ends up facing oncoming traffic. Ah, watching her have to pull past me and go to the back of the line at the intersection was priceless. I roll down my window and point and laugh at her as we pass face to face. At this point, she swings wide, points her car directly at me and revs her engine as if she is going to ram me. She starts in my direction, slams on her brakes and stops literally 6" from my door. The thought of getting out and punching her in the face drifted through my mind but, in the end, I just pointed and laughed some more and drove off.
There's a special place in hell for people who break on the merging lane of the highway. Every time this happens to me I match the persons speed for as long as I can and have whoever is in the car flip the person off. Personal record 15 miles on the way to Ames.
I was driving and came up on a car that I wanted to pass. I looked behind me to make sure nobody was passing me. Thankfully I looked because there was actually somebody passing me. I let them go around and then I passed. As I passed the car that was going slower, the car that passed me was pulling away.
A couple miles down the road, I saw flashing lights on the side of the road. As I passed the cop car, he was talking to the driver of the vehicle that had passed me. I could only laugh as I passed him.
I have a cocky young co-worker who on his way to work a few weeks ago saw a car parked on the street, sitting on concrete blocks after having the tire/wheels stolen off of it. He snapped a picture of the car with his phone a sent an email to everyone in the office with the picture and wrote something like: "haha - this guy aint making it to work today!"
Two days later, he sends another email to only our HR manager letting her know he wouldn't be in the office that day as all of his tires/wheels had be stolen off his truck. Luckily, he sent her a picture of it and she sent it to the rest of the office. So, for the last few weeks, we routinely print off a picture of his tire-less truck and tape it to his cube!
Years ago I was driving on hwy 60 in NW Iowa during a snowstorm and had someone tailgating me. They were far to close. I tapped my brakes to see if they would back off (I didn't slow down, just enough to turn on the brake light). They must have be spacing off, because there was this delay and then they slammed on their brakes causing them to go into a spin and backwards in the ditch they went. I did not stop to help.
