Closest I’ve ever been to a major collision happened about an hour ago. M1 southbound, about half a mile after J23.
Had literally just come on at J23 and was doing 70 in the inside lane. Some hatchback is in the middle lane in front of me doing about 60, and a white van comes bombing up the middle lane up said hatchback’s arse. I’m easing off to try and get him to pull across in front of me, when the van swerved directly in to me!
I’ve slammed the brakes on and swerved out of his way, and pretty much closed my eyes and braced. Didn’t even think to get near the horn, but must have missed him by six inches tops. Ended up at a standstill on the hard shoulder and the cvnt has gunned it up the inside lane.
****ing shaking with anger and adrenaline the rest of the way home. Don’t suppose any of yous saw this happen?
