My favourite subject. No need to tell me if I get boring - I won't stop.
Driving through a tunnel in Marseille, 2 thin lanes, a car drives at very high speed (150 kph ?) through the gap that doesn't exist between me & my neigbour. No contact whatsoever, just a few shaken drivers.
M62 approaching Liverpool. 3 busy lanes of traffic ~50 mph. Turbo Golf-hatch jobbie can't get past me because I'm busy, so takes a short-cut via the hard-shoulder. I'd estimate his speed at ~140 mph ON THE HARD SHOULDER.
I've seen drivers texting, smoking, changing lane, negotiating roundabouts, all at the same.
Perhaps my favourite example occurred when I lived in Newbury. A small car tried to sneak past a large vehicle at a roundabout. The small vehicle came off worst. The large vehicle, a loaded tank transporter, had a tiny scratch.
Oh, and my other favourite example was between Barcelona & Zaragotha. A Ferrari (driver showing off to his mate) passed me at twice my speed - I was clocking 150 kph. A Few minutes later, the same car re-appeared the other way at the same speed, and there was an enormous explosion. Most of the car drifted to a halt amid a cloud of blue smoke. I'd guess ~50K worth of damage. Did I chuckle ?
I've seen so many examples, it doesn't phase me as much as it used to. Anyone need more examples ?
