    Coming out of Hendaye in France, kid on a scooter pulled straight in front of us and then slowed us down to about 10 miles an hour all the time looking at us with his mirrors while a car was very close behind us, Gel got the camera out and started taking photos with that the kid saw this and peeled off as did the car, could have been nothing but it seemed sus at time, so beware.

    I will be going through security drills with my wife on Saturday before our trip to Spain.

    She is far too friendly and trusting.::bigsmile:

    while I share your thoughts... that's all very well and good.. but the hassle and grief if you hit him don't bear thinking about.. remember you are to blame if you hit from behind..

    trouble is better avoided rather than confronted..

    Well done RayB, we keep a camera to hand but for the last few months we have fitted a cab-camera as advised by Techmoan as their cheapest decent camera for just over £30, it records continuously over a three hour period and then writes over the old material unless you save your recording.
    I wonder if spotty face would have noticed the camera?
