Moron of the week

The scene - a wet morning, around 0745. The roads are slippery, and the traffic is building as the school runs start. The road I am riding down is wide enough for two cars to pass - most of the time, but not all the time. It's definitely not wide enough for a car to overtake a bike when there is traffic coming the other way.

But that's just what the moron behind the wheel of ANT 73Z decided to do. Whoever he or she was, they were in a big hurry. My worry with these idiots is that they don't get completely past before panicking at the oncoming traffic and thus swerving hard left - into me. Yes, it is an uncomfortable feeling to have a car go past both closely and quickly.

To cap it off, he cut it pretty fine going through the roundabout at the bottom of the hill. Like I said, they were in a hurry, and weren't going to let wet, slippery roads slow them down.
