Never let them know what you are thinking .

Driving along Britain's roads, I see a lot of bad driving by other drivers. Main culprit is the "me first generation" - drivers who force their way in front of you, no matter what. All time you have to take avoiding action, all you can do is apply the brakes. It is no point flashing the headlights or blowing the horn. Certainly not confront the other driver if they become stationary.

So it makes me laugh when I read this tale on the Magistrate's Blog ...

This week's Mr.Unlucky was driving along when he took exception to the way in which another car was driven at a merge point. He hooted, he waved, he swore. At the traffic lights along the road he leapt out of his car, rushed over to the offending Astra, and attempted to throttle the casually dressed driver. When the passenger held out his warrant card, shouting 'Police!' Mr. Unlucky claims not to have seen or heard.

He was duly arrested after a scuffle, in the course of which he suffered cuts and bruises, and came before us after a night in the cells.

What kind of loser manages, out of thousands of cars on the road, to have a go at two plain-clothes PCs on their way to a job in an unmarked police car?

That's right; Mr. Unlucky.
