So i came off an island onto a dual carriageway in the right hand lane (the only one there is for the my exit) passing a car to the left coming off another dual carriageway, she was going slower so i was past her safely straight after the junction, neither of us had to stop .....

upfront was a HGV and beyond that an exit to a small village i needed, so i kept my left indicator on to fit in the (big) gap behind the truck


this woman speeds up (in her old skoda fabia) to deny me the gap!

i have to get in and do but shes giving it large at me...
