Came back from Birmingham a couple of days ago.

Now I have a hot hatch, as they are called
Was keeping to speed limit (honest gov)

Pulled up to lights behind a range rover, he had two cars in front of him, and we were both in outside lane

the lights changed green and he crawled forward and placed himself in the middle of the two lanes.

Basically blocking both lanes

As soon as the lights changed to red, he shot forward and ran the red light, thus leaving me to wait till they changed again.

ok dhead driver, but what's his problem?

ok I have fitted my car with cameras and they very clearly, in hi res, shows him blocking the lanes and jumping the red light.

Would you report him to the police?

Just like to add, the cameras are fitted because of the standard of driving we witness, The Wirral is no such a problem because you learn where there is going to be sudden lane changes from rubbish drivers

What model of car were you driving?

I find drivers act differently depending on the car you drive.

If I drive my BMW people treat you with respect.
If I drive my 92 Astra GSi people look at you like your shite.
Driving a micra you don't get looked at at all.

Driving the Astra attracts boy racers, the bmw just attracts people in M3s as mine is a 330ci you get morons in M3s attempting to race you knowing quite well you don't stand a chance.

The guy in the Range Rover may of thought you were a boy racer and done that stunt to annoy you.

My car falls into the second option.

Well I could return the favour to the range rover driver by sending a copy of the film to the police.

I noticed on youtube someone posts videos about bad Wirral drivers. lol

They're getting rare now Ian you should keep hold of that.

Corsa gsi was a car I wanted but never got round to buying.

Had this Astra 5 years now.
Need to put the original back windows back in, spray the vents and the roof spoiler the right colour and put the wheels back to the original colour.

I had the 5 door 1.6 in 1998, brand new. It was a brilliant car.

Trying to get the gist of this--are you saying the range rover naffed you off because he didn't get out of your way. or let you undertake him? If as you say he was intending to drive straight ahead then maybe his and your path were blocked by vehicles ahead of him.
