Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: The Borough, Farnham, GU9 7NP, United Kingdom


I took the left lane at traffic lights and a Tesla pulls up beside me, in the lane dsignated for travelling straight on. A few seconds after I pull away from the traffic light, I realise the Tesla is passing on my right and pulling across left into my lane to cut me up at the junction. Having to swerve, with less than a 0.5m gap to the pavement their impatience and lack of lane discipline almost had me off and a pedal scratch on their passenger door. To get a couple of seconds advantage?
