Bit of a random thread really. I was just hoping for your own opinions.
I was out with my grandparents in the car today. As we approached a roundabout (I noticed it before my granddad did and warned him) There was a joker of a learner driver in the outside lane. I swear she wasn't doing above 5mph! We were in the inside lane and went to pass to merge onto the dual carriageway.
She made eye contact with us before she swerved as she performed a shoulder check.
As we started to pass the learner driver she swerved out to the left, causing us to break hard and narrowly missed curbing the wheels, on my grandparents 12 reg Volvo which they wouldn't have been impressed with. As we passed the passenger in the learners car started shaking his fist at us and screaming every word in the book.
I personally don't think we were to blame? To start with the learner vehicle was doing 5mph which in my opinion is a dangerous speed to be doing on a roundabout. Then secondly we passed on the inside well within our lane and she was the one that swerved over towards us? So I don't understand why the passenger was so furious at us? Maybe just a normal case of road rage. What do you think?
I have made a diagram of the incident below just incase my text wasn't clear.
