A Citroen DS3 - Really?

A DS3 tried to race me at a traffic light.

Enough said.

It was a double set of lights on a roundabout... They looked across at me (2 young lads) while revving the engine at the red light, and I just shook my head and raised my eyes as if to tell them it wasn't worth them even trying. I let them pull away from the first set quickly, and then I floored it and sailed (or roared) past them as we went through the second set of lights! It really wasn't fair (to them), and was just like taking candy from a baby!!

Careful , it may be a new police strategy to put plain clothes cops in little hatchbacks and go around baiting people in fast cars to get them on speedcams ......

Good advice Craige, although the lads this time were only just old enough to drive (my son's girlfriend, who I was giving a lift home at the time, knew them from college)
