Returned from a vacation in Belgium (for mah fix of Mattentaarten). Took the kids to them parks, swimming, etc. Nice and relaxing. Yet little did I knew what the future would bestow upon me.
You might remember me bitching about Belgian highway, they are still terrible, but there now lurks an even greater danger.......... the Belgian driver! Get this. I was driving behind a red van, who was overtaking a car. This was on a two lane high way (A10 from Oostende to Brussel). When suddenly the red van swerves to the right.
I was like ok, nothing out of the ordinary for a typical Belgian motorist. When they are not tailgating they do all kinds of other crazy shit.
With the red van out of my way I see a car COMING STRAIGHT AT ME. I hit the brakes, jerk my car to the right and get behind the car I was overtaking. My heart pounding, I thought ... Only in Belgium, only in Belgium and thank God for ABS, EPS and traction Control.
tl;dr For thrill of your live, drive on Belgian highways.
