There is no real point to this thread but to rant about a couple of assholes. Maybe a cautionary tail, i don't know. It happened last night and its still got me riled. Sometimes I pray to the spaghetti monster for instant karma.
I was traveling eastbound along Marine in North Van, right before the split to low level road (about 10pm). I was in the left lane because the merge was a block up. 2 dirt bags try to get past on the right but couldn't make it before the merge.
They must have been flying because I had check my mirrors for exactly that reason. 2 older looking cars were a good block or so behind. I was doing 10 or 15 over the limit and figured they wouldn't attempt a right lane pass so close to the merge.
Seconds later I look in my right rear view and both cars come from about 20 feet to within a foot of my rear tire! The lead car was hugging the right side of the road to either squeeze by or get next to me (single lane now and def no room to let him past). I kept the finger in the holster and I'm glad I did. I accelerated onto low level to get away and avoid being rammed. Both cars accelerated getting back to within 4 or 5 feet from my tire, honking/flashing. At this point I think their TRYING to kill me and not just wanting to pass. Good spot too, quiet, dark road, no witnesses, easy. Maybe a case of mistaken ID?
I hit the throttle and get some real distance but I'm doing 110-115km at this point. I'm thinking accelerate and get away or try to pull over and potentially get run down. I catch up to an old van and take refuge near his back right bumper, eying what they do in my left mirror while they catch up. I figure I'll use the cage to shield myself and get away from a full out ramming. Both cars fly by on the double yellow going at least 120 (not embellishing)
I try to keep them in view to see if they pulled off. I even continued past my destination near the iron worker's bridge to see if anybody had been pulled over by the PO. They were speeding so excessively that any cop's eyes would've gone red. It looked like a street race. I was ready to stop and explain how they almost took my life. No such luck. No cops, no visual, gone.
If your out there MF'rs do us all a favor and kill yourselves.
