A FEMALE driver was left shaken after she was twice nearly run off the road by an infuriated motorist.

The driver, who did not want to be named, was at the wheel of her red Jaguar on the A421 Standing Way heading towards Milton Keynes Hospital and as she approached the double roundabout, to go right towards the city centre, she placed herself in the middle lane.

She said: “A lot of people get into the middle lane to go right and that’s what I did. I have done it a few times and seen people cut across but on this occasion I tooted the horn.”

It was after that, she said, that the driver of the black Chrysler Voyager ‘lost his temper’.

She added: “I carried on driving and he pulled right up behind me then pulled up next to me and was trying to come across into my lane, in order to force me off the road.”

Staying calm, she continued driving to the next roundabout where she turned left and away from the driver before pulling into a layby to call police.

She said: “After he had pulled next to me he pulled in front of me and when he did I started saying his registration and car details over and over again so I could remember them for when I called the police.”

After calling police the victim was told that she would need at least two witnesses, including herself, who had seen the incident to come forward.

Now she is appealing for anyone who saw what happened or heard her sound her horn to get in touch with police on 0845 8 505 505.

She said: “This driver was in the wrong and so I just sounded the horn to let him know I was there. Even if you don’t think you are in the wrong that is no way to behave on the road.

“I could have been killed. I could have been forced to make a mistake or he could have made contact with my car sending me into the bushes.

“I hope someone can come forward with some information and let police know what happened. I would hate for this to have to happen to somebody else. They may not be as lucky as I was.”
