...A volunteer fireman in an SUV?
I want to tell this story, but I don't want it taken in the wrong way.
On my drive home from work, there's a section of 50MPH road than opens from 2 lanes (1 each way) to 4 lanes. It stays 4 lanes for about a half mile, then closes back to two lanes. There are signs saying, "Slower traffic keep right".
I came zipping up behind 3 cars and the SUV. When it opened to 4 lanes, the three cars moved to the right lane. The SUV remained in the left lane. (There's always one driver who can't keep right -- Sigh.)
I decided I didn't want to be stuck behind a huge wallowing SUV, so I stayed in the right lane and went past it.
I'm pretty sure he knew I was trying to get around. He accellerated to try to block me but he wasn't fast enough, and I signalled and got in front of him. I didn't cut him off.
Right after this, I see strobes light up in his turn signals and I think I heard a siren. (He was otherwise "unmarked.")
So I'm thinking, "This idiot doesn't keep right, tries to block my pass, and now he thinks I'm going to pull over? No."
So I walked away from him, and he fell further and further back. Eventually he switched off his strobes when it was obvious he wasn't going to catch me.
After the road returned to 2 lanes, I came up behind 4 cars, and passed them, putting more obstacles between me and the nutty SUV guy. The roads were clear from that point on, and I never saw the guy again.
My take on all this is that he was some bubba in a big SUV who thought he was gonna own the road and keep the little car from going around, and then tried to intimidate me with his pretty flashing lights.
So far the cops haven't shown up at my house.
