Driver of Ford Ranger appears to think he's Chuck Norris.

Driving a large pickup truck does not afford you the right to tailgate other road users, ignore light signals nor travel at ~45mph in a 30 - the area of Warrington you were witnessed doing this in this morning has a number of schools.

I'd like you to consider driving more carefully before you hurt somebody.

Pulled out of Darlow Drive, went over the other side of the road, and remained over the middle line for at least 5 further seconds. Very lucky someone wasn't coming on the other side of the road, could have caused major damage.

Speeding drivers will now face stricter penalties and much higher fines which will be based around what they earn.

The new rules are due to come into affect in the UK on April 24 this year and will mean some offenders could be charged up to 175% of their weekly income.

Currently in the UK the minimum penalty for speeding is a £100 fine and three penalty points added to your driving licence while the maximum fine is £1,000 or £2,500 for motorway offences.

But when the new guidelines are brought in next month, those caught driving at more than 101mph in a 70mph speed limit could be disqualified for up to 56 days and get a fine of between 125 and 175 per cent of their relevant weekly income.

Or if you are caught going between 31 and 40mph in a 30mph zone you will get three penalty points and a fine of between 25 and 75 per cent of your weekly income.

Currently many drivers get away without points and a fine by paying for a speed awareness course.

It follows tougher penalties being brought in this month for anyone using a mobile phone behind the wheel.

The previous penalty of three points and a £100 fine has been doubled to six points and £200.

the new changes mean if you’re a high earner, your fine could be huge.

If a footballer earning £300,000 a week was caught driving at 102mph he could face a fine of more than £500,000.

Meanwhile, an 18-year-old driver who works 40 hours a week on the minimum wage would be subject to a fine of less than £400 for the same speed.

How much will I be fined if I’m caught speeding?

The new speeding system is split into three bands which rate the severity of the offence based on the speed limit.

Band A refers to an offence that is between one and 10mph over the stated speed limit.

For example a band A speeding offence in a 20mph zone would be from 21mph to 31 mph.

A band B offence is 11mph to 21mph above the stated speed limit and a band C offence is 21 mph and above the stated speed limit.

The starting point for a Band A fine is 50% of your weekly wage.

Band B starting point = 100% of your weekly wage

Band C starting point = 150% of your weekly wage rising up to 175%

Arun Ali, 30, was charged with a number of crimes including racial common assault, common assault, a public order offence, a racially aggravated public order offence and careless driving after police tracked him down.

During the hearing Mr Ali pleaded guilty to the charge of common assault of a woman but pleaded not guilty to all other offences.

It is alleged that the incident started after collision between two cars on Alexandra Road in Peterborough.

The case was adjourned until Monday, July 31 and Mr Ali was bailed to an address outside of Cambridgeshire until the next hearing.

He puts indicator on as I am moving past him and pulls off double yellow lined curb. Direct collision course with me. I beep letting him know there is a car there, he gets annoyed. Pulls in behind me,to pull in to opposing traffic to get level and shout profanity at me. Later on, he pulls level again winds down window and asks why I beeped. I tell him "it was my right of way" [and so he could only pull out when the traffic allows him to, not whenever he pleases]. However he obviously doesn't understand and says "f*** right of way, I was pulling out". Idiots like this need to be off the roads.

On the approach to this junction, there's only a single lane marked which widens to two lanes as you get closer to the roundabout. This driver decided to try and squeeze past the right turn queue on the inside. As she drew alongside my car, she drifted over to the right because there were roadworks signs in the left channel, hitting my wing mirror at low speed. She then proceeded to wind down her window and shout her councilite mouth off as if it was my fault. Utter scum.

complete idiot of a driver. dangerously cut me up at lights, but then also proceeded to slam on his brakes, for no reason over the next mile before thankfully turning off. A rude and obnoxious bully

Both drivers are in need of retraining.

One wrong does not justify another but when one idiot sits in an overtaking lane, forcing another idiot to slow below the speed he wishes to travel at, something will have to give and in this case, it did.

Stick to the left lane, do the speed limit and let the idiots be on their merry way - let the traffic police deal with them.
