Has anyone else experienced inconsiderate drivers when they're running? Last week I was plodding along a local quiet single track country lane ( on the right hand side kerb as they advise) when a horn blasted out repeatedly behind me. Startled I leaped into the undergrowth (the verge is waist high in grass and cow parsley) as a van swept past at around 30 miles an hour. I shook my fist, which was obviously pointless as drivers like that are unlikely to use their wing mirrors. I dismissed it as a one off , but then, yesterday on the same lane, now covered in puddles, I realised that a 'lady' in an oncoming Range Rover had no intention whatsoever of slowing down as she passed me. Again I sprang aside (this time into the ditch) in the nick of time and was rewarded by being sprayed from head to foot by muddy water as she sailed past. This time I think there may have been some fingers projecting from the fist I waved. I was wearing my fetching fluorescent pink running top so surely she must have seen me? God help cyclists and horse riders when there are drivers like this around. Grrrrr. Rant over.
