A proper cu*t this guy was and I would take the head clean off his shoulders if I had got hold of him,
Sounds like your relation got a fright when she realised she didn’t own the road herself tbh.
Some people don’t realise that the onus is on them to be aware that there are other people who use the roads besides themselves, and there are idiots of every description commandeering all sorts of vehicles and bikes and pedestrians.
The idea of a lorry driver speeding up to bumper check a car? Why would they? Does that honestly make any sense to you? From their higher vantage point they have a better overview of the roads than drivers in cars for a start, and they aren’t likely to risk their insurance and put their livelihood in jeopardy just to put the wind up a Yaris driver
