Who is the jerk?
The other day I was driving on the QEII in the slow lane. I was coming up to my intended exit in two exits. The highway was somewhat busy, but not unbearable. As I passed by the off ramp before my exit, there was another vehicle needing to enter onto the highway. I had no space to move over. The dickhead in the SUV started merging onto the highway right beside me, bullying me out of the way. I sped up a little bit so he wouldn’t hit me! I was already doing about 113-115! As he entered the highway behind me, the dickhead turned on his siren. Turns out he’s a cop! Scared the everloving crap out of me. He didn’t want to pull me over, though! He pulled into the middle lane, sped up until he was right beside me and gave me the universal “WTF” gesture!
That’s my question…WTF! Yeah, I know if I’m able to, I should move over to allow people to merge, if I can. But, isn’t it also the responsibility of the person merging to adjust their speed to merge safely at the speed of the vehicles traveling on the roadway? Was this guy just being a dick because he’s a cop? I’ve never seen anyone act like such an asshat!
What’s your take?
