No question traffic, is a major aggravator in TnT, and dealing with it plus pot-holes and floods has many of us on edge. Just the slightest thing can result in road rage.
One day, heading North on the Uriah Butler, I was stuck behind a slow driver in the middle lane, but the right lane was slowly but steadily moving faster. I wanted to switch lanes but there was almost no break big enough for me to safely squeeze in. Then I saw an opportunity.
It was a bit tight, but I trusted the driver behind the approaching space would allow me in. So I put on my indicator and made my move.
Well. Who tell me do dat?
The driver did exactly the opposite of allowing me in; instead he sped up to stop me from getting in which resulted in him being almost in my back seat; of course blowing his horn to express his outrage. Well, I pulled back into the middle lane as soon as I could to allow this guy to pass, but he was now focussed on teaching me a lesson. He drew alongside, rolled down the side window and proceeded to cuss me, and when he got no reaction, he accelerated and moved into my lane and hit the brakes so that I had to do the same to avoid ramming into him. Luckily we didn't cause an accident.Now I'll concede I may have mis-judged the gap, or my lane-switching skills maybe weak, but if you see someone that is trying to change into your lane, what do you do? Let them in or speed up to stop them?
