The driver of vehicle number HX 06 EVG - on
the morning of the 30 th April , followed me
along the A 40 ( for several miles ): between
Highnam and Birdwood . Most of this road is along
restricted speed areas - either 30 or 50 mph
with ( so say )cameras covering .
The driver of this HGV vehicle was reckless -
to say the least ! He continued to press me
to break the speed limits - often within twelve
feet of my exhaust , but aggressivly sounding off
his horn too .
Needless to say , I refused to do so . In the event ,
he overtook me : exceeding the speed limit of 50 mph ,
on a stretch of open road between Churchwood and Birdwood
In order to avoid a front end collision : between the lorry
and on oncoming car on the opposite side of the road , I was
forced to break and allow him in . It was a very dangerous
manoevre indeed on this drivers part .
My verbal report to you I understand : from your telephoned
response / earlier on this week , has led to a formal verbal
warning to this driver . At the time , I was inclined to
follow up my verbal report to you with another to the police .
In the circumstances , I would wish you to acknowledge this
e mail and give me your written response , if you wish to avoid
my reporting these facts to the Chief Superintendant ( Traffic )
at Gloucester Police HQ .
For your information , once the driver had passed me at Birdwood
I followed him all along the A 40 : until he turned off on a B class
road ( signposted Trelleck ) about a mile from Monmouth at 11.10 am
Throughout the whole of this journey , he continued to break the speed limits !
