I was driving home earlier, when I approached a roundabout that has two lanes on one side, and on the other side has a very small part that is two lanes before you are too merge in.
There was a white van and the supermarkets delivery van in the inside lane, and I was in the outside lane. I indicated, and there was no risk and moved between the two vehicles. It certainly wasn't a case of carving up.
Anyway for whatever reason the supermarkets driver had an issue with this, and proceeded to have his hand on the horn and his lights on full beam. At the next roundabout, he went in the outside lane, pulled in front of me and slammed on his brakes and stopped.
I was feeling very scared, he then pulled off, and pulled shortly into the local supermarkets. I was going to go in there myself to get a couple of bits, but was so fearful of coming face to face with this driver, I drove home.
I am undecided whether to report the incident as appreciate the job is his livelihood, but do also think if you are liable to roadrage maybe a delivery job isn't for you.
Yes this is well out of order and I think anyone in a 'named' van is representing their firm
But don't hold your breath. We had an Eddie Stobbart lorry up my jacksee on motorway. I'm in centre lane.There's a car in front of me.I couldn't safely get into right hand lane.I had 2 very obvious car seats in back with my Dcs ES lorry so close I couldn't see the grill or headlights but the driver flashed lights and blasted horn. DH took all details ( reg, time and place,cab number) Heard nothing. Luckily I've been driving 27 years so not easily phased but this p***ed me off especially lack of feedback.
I would complain. very dangerous behaviour, he should not be allowed to get away with it.
DH and I had similar run in with lorry driver while driving home from hospital just after birth of DD.
We took down contact details on truck and reg number and rang the company.
They were very nice, got back to us later saying the driver had had several complaints against him and had now been sacked.
I can't feel sorry for some arse who puts the lives of my family in danger just because he can't bear to have another car overtake him. These people will end up killing someone if their behaviour is not stomped on.
