I hate summer traffic going home to my folks place at Muriwai. I went there for dinner earlier tonight and had the pleasure of being tailgated by a rangerover all the way from whenuapai to kumeu. Just because I'm on the speed limit, or just over, doesn't mean if you ride my ass like a homo I'm going to speed up for you- GET ****ED!
I watched him do it to more traffic all the way up to waimauku where i turned off. I would love to know how much his gas buill is the way he stomped the pedal to overtake and get the jump on traffic at the lights.
Then when i was going home, I was going to turn onto Muriwai rd to head back into Waimauku but I had to give way to 3 cars. Thew lead one was a tired looking silver station wagon. the driver craned his neck at me as he drove past. the occupants weren't Maori, Indian or Islander looking but they were dark skinned and the driver was in his mid 20's.
I pulled out after the last car and speed picked up to 60kph... and stayed there. I was thinking, surely he doesnt think this whole stretch of road is a 60km zone...
I had a black subby GT come up behind me and when we hit the only decent straight, i knew the old corona didnt have the grunt to take 2 cars before the subby could so i stayed where i was and watched him overtake the 3 of us.
by the next short straight with lots of oncoming traffic i was getting really pissed off. we were still doing 60kph and he was braking for [b]EVERY[//b] ****ing corner!! Even the corners signposted as ****ing 65kph corners. For comparison, I don't brake at all on the road except to give way at intersections.
The closer we got to Waimauku the more ****ed off i was getting and i wound down my front passenger window just in case I got the chance to abuse him.
As we came into Waimauku the car immediately infront turned off. We came around the corner and straight into a police check point outside the primary school. All 3 of us are stopped. The cop I talk to is friendly and I pass my test sweetas. He tells me to have a good night and I scoffed and said " that guy up front drove the whole way from the beach 40 kms under the limit!"
As the cop turned to look at who i was pointing at, the silver car was being pulled over to the side of the road with a few cops walking after them.
my cop said " well, looks like he isn't going very far now."
yes! score one for the good guys
