Regardless of the excuse, I pulled out in front of someone, so I made a mistake, and accept that.
However the truck driver, whom, according to his indicators, was intending to follow the main road, instead turned into the side road behind me and started tailgating me and beeping his horn. He also kept veering over to the right as if to overtake me, but just sat there flashing his lights.
On numerous occasions I put my left indicator on and slowed down, inviting him to overtake me, but he didn’t take up the offer and just pulled back in (only a few inches) behind, while beeping his horn.
He kept moving over to the right even with oncoming cars so I believe was driving quite dangerously. I think he was probably trying to make sure I had seen him in my right door mirror, but to be honest couldn’t miss him as he was filling my entire rear view mirror.
They followed me, doing the same behaviour, for the next 6-7 miles to the next village. He eventually passed while pressing his horn. I was preparing for him to pull in and brake hard, hoping I would crash into the back of him, as this happened to a family member, but fortunately he just drove off.
My passenger filmed all of the events. Would it be worth passing this to police, or would I be self-incriminating as I made the initial mistake of pulling out in front of him?
I don’t think my genuine mistake justifies several minutes of dangerous driving?
Just wondering what others think.
