I am faster than you

I have often found that car drivers believe that because they are going faster than you, even if the road doesn't warrant it they can turn left in front of you.
As a motorcycle rider who usually keeps to the posted speed limit I have had to break hard to avoid the idiot who speeds past me then turns left without checking they have complete the overtake. Sometimes they warn me by indicating as they turn.
This short clip shows a car driver, Black VW FT11 WVL, cutting up a cyclist. He or she cannot even complete the turn without crossing into the oncoming lane which is lucky.

Weaving in Totteridge

I followed this drivers along Totteridge Lane from Hendon Wood Lane to the Orange Tree Public House.
The way he or she was weaving about indicated that driving was only of secondary importance. The erratic braking and speeding up also pointed to distraction, tiredness or being tipsy. The darkness didn't help me see inside the car. I kept my distance and was glad when they did turn off.
