I thought the same it looks very staged and potentially fake.
If you're going to blur the plate, make sure you check the whole video carefully.... wink

The Astra failed it's MOT in 2018.

Seems more likely it was just a setup with old cars worth scrap.

How did she not see them filming? They weren't exactly far away nor well hidden.
Didn't see the cars did she? Odd though the person videoing it didnt intervene.

At 1.30. Instead of shouting at the driver to slow down - he stopped on a 6 pence, so couldn't have been going that fast - maybe invest in a dog lead?

This must've been mentioned before, so many times its an Audi driver causing mayhem in these videos.

People reveal their own biases in which brand of car is most prevalent.

Certainly from what I see when driving around, a large proportion of the idiotic or aggressive / impatient behavior comes from Audi drivers in general, but also specifically Vauxhall Insignia drivers too for some reason, which I suspect is because they are lower-rung reps who don't (yet) qualify for an Audi company car.

And people in tatty old people carriers (Zafiras especially) and BMWs and range rovers, etc. etc.

Around half the cars driven badly in that clip were Audis, insurance stats probably back it up as well.

I'm impressed with the camera angles the car at 1:45 has.

The demographic of the people who generally drive Audis explains it all.

A sweeping statement much. S is a high rung rep of sorts, and ours is private. She's the most polite driver around too.

I've said it before and i'll it again......

It's not the car, it's type of person who desires that sort of car. A percentage of people have dormant anti-social behaviour which is enabled when they feel as though they are of a higher social status. Seeing as much of the western world views cars as a sign of social status, when these people jump into a Audi, BMW, Merc, RR, etc, this anti-social behaviour is unlocked.

They drive aggressively because most of their encounters with other drivers leave them feeling that their pseudo higher status is being disrespected.

A sample size of one doesn't mean much really, there will be people in all makes driving badly / well. But as Lyonspride mentions the type of mentality that drives badly / aggressively is also attracted to certain image vehicles, and Audi is currently the top combination of desirable and attainable to these types , and IMHO the Insignia is what these sort of people end up in when they're not high enough up the pole to get an Audi.

I think this is nonsense

I am still the same person and driver whether I am driving my Audi A6, my Evora, my wifes Octavia Scout, my daughter's fiesta or my sons Fabia.


ps. The Evora is by far the best though at making people get out of the way smile

As someone who lives in the suburbs of Bradford, I can assure you it is not nonsense.

No. Much as I hate to admit it, lyonspride is spot on with his post above. Sporty Audi, Merc, BMW or VW models every time and 9 times out of 10 it's the same demographic.
