I was on my way to Port Elizabeth to fetch the Schnitz when I noticed some nitwits bulbar harassing my exhaust pipe. The Duke of Hazard was so close on my tail that I could not see his bonnet in the rear view mirror, and this at 120km/h! And I had the pleasure of having to drive this way most of the way. Every time an incline approached his car slugged off and once the decline drew near dimwit tried to break the land speed / over taking record.

Luckily I travel with my camera and it was quite funny witnessing the numskulls’ reaction when he noticed that I was photographing his actions.

So – if you ever need a lift, if you are a hitchhiker, a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a kudu or a toll booth, please be aware of this number plate RPV 395 GP. It is a company car for BOSTECH Engineering Service - Non Destructive Testing - and give them a shout on 082 372 5077 in case you’d like to scrape your lost dog off their bulbar!

Rant over!

    Dude the GP plates say it all.

    Or maybe he was trying to hit on you. You know how it is with aggro drivers, they just want your attention. I get it all the time. No but seriously.

    I should get myself a car, these donkey carts are just too slow

    Yes save the donkey carts for the Marine Parade in Durban. The tourists dig them that end, but perhaps notsomuch in PE.

    The numskull must have been confused out of his mind when you whipped out your camera!
