Hi guys,

lets observe this douche and how he got butt hurt because there s no other reason why he did this. He clearly did this on purpose, once in the line of sight with him I was able to I see who the driver is and lets just say he wasnt Asian, wasnt female and did not look like a nerd, he was adult male in his mid to late 30s, very short hair, with neck tattoos and a mean look pointed directly towards me through his side window. I did everything by the book. Gave him enough time to react after the last car passed us from the opposite direction, turned on my left blinker, and went to execute a passing maneuver.
Once he saw me in his side mirror, he downshifted and accelerated since all of the sudden I could hear rumble from his V8 and Durangos exhaust but my 3.6L Pentastar in sport mode and 4th gear and its torque gave me enough power so he could not match that and do much except push me all the way to the end of the shoulder. I was on the horn for good few seconds until I passed the bus so he could probably hear it.
Once back into the right lane, he stayed on my back until I passed another vehicle and he had to stay behind due to construction zone.

I expected my wife to scream a bit louder haha

I think you should have given him the opportunity to pass first. But yeah, situational awareness fail on his part.

What are you talking about?????? I gave him enough time (2-3 seconds) since the last car has passed.
I was already in the passing lane when he turned the his blinker on and cut me off. I dont understand your point of view. I learned in the driving school you dont cut off another car once he occupied the passing lane and is executing a passing maneuver.

If you are saying I should wait for the car ahead of me do the passing first, I would not get anywhere on time. This is the reason why you see every day 20+ cars line up traveling exact PSL or just bellow PSL because nobody wants to pass the guy in front but waits for the guy in front to do the pass first just as a courtesy. And forgeting the first car in lineup is some 80 year old Prius driver who never executed a passing in his life.
Come on.

My bets that his attention was to whats ahead rather than behind, giving him the benefit of the doubt....

Now had that first jeep pulled that stunt it would have been totally malicious.

I will agree with you but he could also back off once he saw me in his side mirror. On top of that he gave me such a mean look once we were lined up with the rear of the bus through side window I cant say anything else than he did this on purpose.

You were moving pretty good here. It's hard to tell if it's poor situational awareness or not. You can't see off to the side in the vid. But based on your description of events, I'm guessing he never attempted to move back into his lane which would indicate he saw you and was just being a tool.
I had something similar happen just last weekend. I was out cruising top down enjoying the weather with my wife. We were in a very rural area and got stuck behind a guy in a 4x4 who was doing the PSL and I just got tired of the view and decided to go around. Again just cruising, so directional on and downshift to 4th then head to the outside lane to pass. Never wanting to expose myself in the outside lane any longer than necessary I kicked it a bit. While I'm out there I realized this jackass is now flooring it trying to lock me out. My response was to push my right foot all the way down and see if 3rd gear becomes necessary, which it didn't. I was already carrying enough speed and with the additional HP from flooring it, we continued right on past. It just took an additional second, but why do people have to be such aholes? Because I'm going to go over the speed limit or because you don't like being passed? Either way, why endanger somebody over it? Clearly your situation was much more dangerous. People suck.

You answered your own question, because people are A*******! Pure and simple! This happens to me all the time! The only way to beat it is to blow by them as soon as you get to them. If you stay behind them for any length of time, they feel like you belong behind them or something. I try to time it so I can blow right by them without staying behind them, at least whenever possible. Oh yea, always use full throttle!

Times like these, I may be overly cautious but I wait until the traffic kind of shakes out to pass. I've had too many people do stupid stuff to trust anyone and their abilities. I always seem to find people that love to speed up while passing or they will kiss the center lane so you can't have a clear view. I've even had a guy block me by driving into the middle of the road while passing.

If I see someone behind me looking like they are wanting to pass I move to the right more, and when I see them move into the left lane I will slow down so they don't have to blow by to pass. Spend as little time in the left lane as possible.

This happens all the time to me. It’s like people are always content doing the speed they are doing with no intention of speeding up.
Then suddenly they see someone that is gonna pass them in the mirror and think ‘hell no, who does this guy think he is passing me’ then pull out in front just as you’re about to pass.
I pretty much anticipate this happening now. All I do is slow right down, let them do their shitty slow pass, then pass them later. The only thing that changes is as I pass them if they pull that, I start coming in their lane as I’m right beside them. Nice and easy, so they have lots of time to hit the shoulder, and just smile and wave. A gentle ‘F you, you know what you did’.

Sick of here...
You were fine to use the shoulder... who cares... the whole road is available. I’m along the lines of thinking how India drives... the whole road should be our playground. Eff lanes...

Just like how the French are when it comes to parking...

Even if that means parking in a double mini roundabout.

Possible in a Mustang but cars with real power will just break the tires loose, so you've got to be careful.

:p :roflolmao:

Well, well, well! Look what the cat drug up! Like I've said before, if only I could catch you're @ss out there somewhere with that cute little "ss" of yours, I'd show you how much power that I "don't have"!;)

In some states it is illegal to overtake more than one vehicle at a time because of situations like this. My brother got ticketed for the same thing, it was called "improper passing" If I recall correctly.

I strongly believe its improper passing if you pass 3+ cars at once.
