Gotten my first middle-finger! Yay!

...but for the life of me I can't figure out what I have done to deserve it



Got it from the driver of the beige Nissan Frontier that appears on the right side when the video starts. Clip continues un-cut and un-edited from then on.

Guy's got a Veteran's Plate. Thanks for serving our country, buddy, but f*ck you too.

Judging by the way he changed lanes initially, maybe he thought you were driving too damn slow to be in a M3 ..................Phil

It happens in Vancouver ... I'm surprised it was a veteran ... may have been a younger one, perhaps a bit jealous of not driving a ///M himself let it go

I think he did not like that you blocked him in (at the start of the video clip) you in the left lane he in the far right then you changed lanes I think is the way it was unless I see it wrong?

First off, I just want to say good on you and congrats for not reciprocating (that I could see), and not engaging him. You did the right thing.

Here's my take on the sitch: looked like maybe you started out ahead of him in the left lane, maybe going slower than he thought you ought to. So he passed (the fact that you were on an M definitely didn't help!). Then, he made an ill-advised lane change into slower moving traffic, and couldn't get (and stay) ahead of you again. Erego, the bird... LOL...asshat. People suck.

That is funny. He was pretty mad. Too bad you didn't say anything to him. He probably would have went crazy and you would have some great Youtube gold. What a psycho.

Driving slow in the left lane will get you the bird. Especially when there's just two lanes.

Make your pass and get over to the right for faster traffic to get around you.

No idea what your rear view mirror perspective was. But if I'm making slow passes in the left lane and a car gets up on my ass, then I get over into the file of cars I'm passing so they can get by. Then I pull back to the left and finish passing. I'd want them to do the same for me.

On 1st contact: I signaled at least 4 times before going to the center lane, as you can hear. He did not signal and did not change lane. When I got to the onramp, the white box van was between us. Possible, but a bit of a stretch...

After the onramp and then merging, the right lane was going a bit slow, so I waited for the Land Rover to pass then went into the left lane. Behind me was the white box van, then that guy. Can't really say I cut him off there. Possible, but again a bit of a stretch....

After the railroad crossing, freeway ended. I don't like to camp the left lane either but #1 there were cars on the right and #2 I'm turning left in a couple of blocks. Besides I did move over after HE passed on the right and noticed that something might be up. Once again possible, but still a bit of a stretch....

Finally, the speed. The posted limits were 80km/h until the downhill to the 1st light at the tracks, then 60km/h. I was, um, already "safely and prudently" over the limit. Can't really go faster than what I did there without being an asshat myself. Still possible, but still a stretch.

So yeah, there are possibilities, but they seem to be so minor that there is nothing to get mad at unless the dude is a giant douche *shrugs*

The couple times I have been flipped off, I have followed that person to their destination. One guy locked himself in his car, held his phone up and said he was calling the cops.

Look at the sky! That weather is depressing. No wonder he is in a bad mood. In the end, you're still in an M. No biggy, ignore the ignorance.

...what? He was STRADDLING both lanes before getting to the traffic at the light, I'm guessing just to block me. Looked like he settled on the right lane because that's where I was, but I was turning left next light and I didn't like what was coming from behind so I changed lanes. If he wanted the left lane then (and I can't figure out why; he could have kept it when he was straddling) why didn't he signal?

Sorry about that; I'm NOT a fan of Carl Cox, AT ALL, but that was what was on the radio
