Some temporary traffic lights were in operation on a stretch of road we were on, because one lane was undergoing roadworks, so the lights alternated the flow of traffic through the single open lane (the one on our offside). The lights were on red as we and the truck in front of us approached. As the lights change to green, the truck moves off, moving out into the offside lane... at which point it (and we) are overtaken by someone doing c. 80-90mph coming from behind and obviously far too important to wait the in a queue. A rather fancy car too, which had it clipped the truck, as it so very nearly did, would have ended up a fancy (and bloodied) heap of scrap. I've never seen anyone do that before, but I find such reckless driving is becoming remarkably commonplace.
