Had my first instance of road rage this morning
I took off from Mosgiel and joined State Highway 1 from the off ramp, immediately moved into the passing lane as the person in the non passing lane was going slow (for those who do not know the area, it is a rather steep hill)
Caught up with someone else in a passing lane (in a 6th Gen Honda Civic - I used to drive one of these) and slowed down to 80km/hr. At this stage the left hand lane was clear and I saw the driver of the Civic take a look, look at his rear vision mirror and then he moved right towards the barrier and then braked.
I slowed down and gave a toot of the horn.
At which point the driver of the continued to brake and then eventually stopped. At this point my simple toot of the horn became a full hard constant press of the horn.
The driver of the car was at this point just holding his hands in the air ...
Eventually the left hand lane became clear, so I took off around him and carried on my way to Dunedin
I did keep an eye on my rear view mirror and watched as the Civic stayed in the right hand lane all the way till it turned off from SH1 to Caversham ...
As I used to drive one of these 6th Gen Civics, I know they are very capable of making the journey up and over the hill where this incident took place; there was no reason for the driver to be in the passing lane going 80km.
I know based on his actions that the driver of the Civic made a decision to not move over to the left hand lane when able and then purposely "brake checked" me until we were stopped.
My "at fault" actions were a) not moving into the left hand lane when he first brake checked me, b) coming to a complete stop behind the Civic while on a state highway and c) keeping my hand on the horn for the entire duration of the slowing down and stopping part of the equation.
