Quite specific this one. Jag Drivers on the A34.
Sunday I went to visit a friend in Bristol, so on the way back I peel off the M4 and onto the A34 to the M3. Firstly I got stuck behind some dick in a Transit. Not a go at Van drivers, BUT its frustraiting to have one infront of you, who then attemtps to undertake the car he was tailgating, only to discover he cant accelerate much more. Kept pulling out infront of me and I cant see round a solid van.
Anyway, once I waited for him to pull over again I got along side so he could pop back out. This is when I met Mr S-Type.
Now Ive noticed this alot recently when traveling anywhere, but Jag drivers are on their own little planet. This bloke was travelling marginally quicker than the cars in the left lane but becasue he had a Jag deemed it nessecary to sit in the outside lane. I decided to have a little experiment with this, so waited till we passed the car he was then I pulled over. Hmmm no other cars infront as far as the eye can see and yet the Jags still there. 2miles later and he's stilll there, so I slip past him, to be greeted by him flashing me and waving his hand about. It was a bit of an ambiguous manover but he was just sitting there.
It really does seem to the untrained eye that when you buy a Jag your handed some kinda 'Key To The Highway', where as to the trained eye the majority of them are just old upperclass wannabes who think because they have been driving for 50years all is well with how they drive.
Noticed this round my town as well, Jag drivers just pootling along without a care in the world about other cars trying to make some kinda progress. I was stuck behind one who did 20mph in clear open 30s.
While Im on the subject, Middle Lane. Noticed this is one of their habitats too. Whenever I drive on the motorway I always get right back over to the left as soon as I can, more than anything its harder for the police to spot me speeding in the inside lanes. Ive found myself coming up on middle-laners and either buzzing them on the inside if its clear, or it not moving out two lanes around them, then with the words most blatent indication pulling back across 3 lanes in the vain hope they will think "Hmmm, maybe I shouldnt be just dawdling in the middle of the road"
Ive got loads of other travelling stuff of my chest but will leave that for my colum!
