So there we are driving up the A3, on a beautiful sunny blue sky day. Traffic was light and I was enjoying the drive.
We were approaching the exit for Wisley and I was getting ready to overtake the car ahead but was waiting for the vehicle approaching from behind.
As he passed, I indicated and moved out behind him, which is when he decided to brake, causing me to brake too. The road in front of him was clear, absolutely no reason to brake.
He then pulled over to the left and slowed down.
As I passed him we noticed the numpty had his mobile to his ear and was totally unaware of the potential carnage he could have caused.
The government recently raised the penalties for using a mobile phone whilst driving.
You can get 6 penalty points and a £200 fine if you use a hand-held phone when driving. You’ll also lose your licence if you passed your driving test in the last 2 years.
You can get 3 penalty points if you don’t have a full view of the road and traffic ahead or proper control of the vehicle.
You can also be taken to court where you can:
- be banned from driving or riding
- get a maximum fine of £1,000 (£2,500 if you’re driving a lorry or bus)
With all the recent coverage on the TV and radio, there is no excuse for using your phone whilst driving.
Police in England and Wales are targeting people using their phones at the wheel in a week-long operation which started yesterday (Monday, January 22). New drivers who have passed their test in the past two years will have their licences revoked – they are able to get their licence back if they pay for a new provisional licence and successfully take their theory and practical tests again.
At 11:35 on Thursday 25th January, 2018 you were driving without due care and attention. You nearly caused an accident due to your irresponsible driving.
I had my dash cam operating and the evidence regarding your driving is clear. Fortunately, for you, it didn’t record the fact that you were on your phone. That I would have passed on to the police.
So the point of this post is to out the driver of the
Black Mercedes G Wagon, Registration 9 DER
sir you are a prat, a plonker, a numpty and a total dickhead.
Oh diddums. CS of Eastbourne, Get over yourself.
Did they parade you around the store ?
Did they shine a spotlight on you and make all the other shoppers aware ?
I think the real humiliation is that you are so sensitive that you felt the need to publish the episode.
