    I've had them do that whilst out in the car all because I was obeying the speed limit, saw a car yesterday Blue Audi A3, come out of the end of the road onto the main road, accelerate hard for 300-400 yards until there is a speed warning sign, they started to brake & still registered 50 in a 30mph, wish I'd got the plate No, although unlikely Dibble would have done anything

    I didn’t say it’s the right thing to do but I’d far rather that than they try to squash me at a pinch point!
    I’d never do it in a car. Nor on a bike if there are pedestrians

    They'll just reprogram them to do it, like they disabled the DPFs

    Honestly, it was the first time for me in tens of thousands of miles that I have had it done to me. I have seen plenty of cars do it in queues of traffic to perform a right turn, but never in free flowing traffic.

    It's common here.
