I had an hour before sundown so I powered up the Elise and took off for the canyons. I do this for relaxing and the canyons are 7 minutes from my home. When I hit the canyons (Westlake), there is a slow Jag sedan in front of me so I switched cruising mode. I NEVER tail gate to force someone to move into a shoulder, what I do is slow down and let some space between us so I can speed up at my pace. The Jag driver pulled over into a turn out, so I waved and passed. Clear road for a while. I spotted a silver 350Z far in front of me, following a slow pick-up truck, so I went back to cruising mode again. I'm waiting for the left turn on Mulholland.
The truck went straight and the 350Z turned left, slowly, and completely stopped in the lane. I turned after the car and slowly went around him, noticed the driver was a middle aged man. I wondered why he stopped. But immediately, he was right on my bumper!
I'm not into racing on public streets, no way! So I slowed down to 10mph to let him around me. He still was on my bumper.
so I dove for the first turn-out and he passed and speed up. He was driving rather fast.
It didn't take long to catch up to him. He was a poor driver and/or does not know the roads or his car. He was all over the road, braking at the wrong spots, using the brakelights when he shouldn't be. I kept my distance until he turned left on Kanan, I went straight.
The rest of the drive was relaxing, took my favorite roads at my own pace and enjoyed the drive home. But I still wonder about the 350Z driver. He needs to learn road manners and skills, and I hope he doesn't endanger others by his road attitude. Unfortunately there are too many people like that.
