    Default Dumb drivers

    So, you're out riding your bike, head down, pedaling hard, well to the left of the white line on an extremely long, flat, straight road when the driver of a white coloured car travelling in the same direction as you roars up from behind, pulls across onto the shoulder forcing you onto the verge and BEEPS the horn scaring you witless. As you struggle not to crash and try to regain your balance and composure, you notice that the white car indicates, brakes and turns left into the driveway of a house about 500 metres up the road. Do you......

    Hoooooonnnnn! And the driver of the white car wasn't much better.

    Only joking. What a nasty scare, but he must have been a pretty decent driver because at least he did indicate. Most of them out here don't bother.

    Hope you've recovered by now.

    Yep, ride past as if nothing had happened, and then return later and petrol bomb the car.

    I'm sure there's a story unfolding here. I hope so and I do hope it has a happy ending.

    Yes. Paying him back for the boat incident on the river back last year. Did he fall or was he pushed?

    Walk up the drive, knock on their door, and politely ask them for an explanation of their ignorant and dangerous behaviour. Stand patiently whilst they bluster and fluster and can't answer and then smile and congratulate them on being the biggest arsehole you've had the mispleasure of meeting in NZ.

    You nearly crashed in to something cos you weren't looking (you said head down!), and actually the driver of the white car saved you from a dangerous, or at least embarrasing, bike accident. He pushed you over to save you from oncoming danger!
