    A3 Sportback spotted driving like a prat

    It enraged me so much I thought I'd post it just in case the driver happens to be a forum member. Driving on the M5 today and witnessed an A3 sportback (SE trim I think), silver, VRM: MA60 NWY driving like a complete idiot! This guy gives Audi drivers a bad name and nearly caused several accidents with his tailgating and undertaking habits. I thought he was going to take me out when he swerved across two lanes, undertook two cars and then pulled across two lanes causing cars to urgently brake. He must have been doing nearly 90mph as well.

    Keep a watch out, near Exeter, this guy is dangerous!

    It's a bit embarrassing really as I only defended Audi drivers last week stating the ones to watch are Merc and Astra drivers. If only I could push people off the road

    Agreed it sounds like he was driving dangerously, but it does sound like everyone else was sat in the outside lane which is just as bad. If he was doing 90mph and everyone had to brake then there's something up there as well.

    50k miles a year from 2004-2008, I've seen plenty on the roads. I now work from home and will never ever commute, as we're (the normal UK motorist) doomed. Educated driving has gone out of the window. I'd happily take my driving test every year if it meant that these people (both the outside lane sitters and idiots that undertake) fail and stay off the road. I'd probably become a driving instructor (and that's another thing, almost anyone can pass a simple exam and be an instructor even though they aren't any good at driving) and cash in on it .

    Fully agree, there is an increasing number of people who don't use their rear view mirror but, undertaking is far more dangerous and his tailgating behaviour was disgusting. As much as I sit and swear at the wrong lane hoggers, I will never undertake.

    I'm with you on the driving test front. I'd got further and limit what size cars people get depending on their age and way of driving.

    could easily have been a stolen car, no need to "defend" audi drivers if it turns out they didn't own it in the first place

    Not too sure about the undertaking thing - When you have idiots like this sitting in the 3rd lane I would happily undertake in the slow lane.

    Ahahahaa, sliced that is awesome.

    Usually people sat in the outside lane have their left mirror pointing at the passenger or folded completely in like the TWO cars I saw yesterday. Might get an on-board camera just to upload people's stupidity to YT.
