Idiot drivers no doubt ! Was on the A12 last night, turned onto the A120 and had someone tailgate me on the outside lane for about 2 miles - even though there were many vehicles in front of me and slower traffic in the inside lane, then the idiot undertook me and the two vehicles in front. So if that rings a bell and it was you - you are a prize p r a t !

The A120 is a significant link for Colchester to places like Stansted yet can be brought to a stop just by someone turning onto their drive.
