  • Mood:

a question for those of you who drive

Hypothetical situation:

Fairly heavy traffic, dual carriageway (two lanes going the same direction), slip road/off ramp is coming up and the car in front signals they are leaving the dual carriageway at this exit, it pulls onto the slip road/off ramp and you carry on, starting to pass the car as you do. At the very last second, the car (a silver Fiat Brava whose registration plate ends in VEL) decides that no, it didn't want to take that slip road/off ramp, and suddenly starts to veer back into your lane. You are already halfway past him. What do you do?

1 - Slam on the brakes and hope to hell you stop in time.
2 - Speed the fuck up and hope you'll make it past in time.
3 - Panic.

If you have chosen option 2 (as the driver of the blue Ford Fiesta badly in need of a trip to the carwash did because she was already committed and if she'd hit the brakes she wouldn't have to worry about washing the car this weekend 'cause she'd probably be spending it in hospital while the Fiesta in question was being taken apart for its component pieces) what do you do when the fucker in the silver Fiat Brava tries to prove he has the bigger balls by trying to match your speed and get in front of you?

1 - Slam on the brakes even though you're doing 50mph by this point and there's no fucking way you're going to stop in time
2 - Pull over to the central line as far as you can and know that because of the silver Fiat Brava (regie plate ending in VEL) someone is going to have at the very least a new paint job to charge to their insurance company.
3 - Panic.

If you have chosen option 2 (again, the driver of the not exactly clean blue Ford Fiesta), what do you do when you just manage to make it past the fucker in the silver Fiat Bravia (regie plate ending in VEL) and they fucking sideswipe you?

Seriously, I want to know.

Adrenaline leaves a horrible taste in your mouth.
