    Yep, going down the M5 jsut over 60, nice and steady and get tailgated by a Stagetech van (www.stagetecheventhire.co.uk) who is then on his phone. Less than 10 metres from me.
    Suffice to say later he though it was funny to pull past me and slam on his brakes - fortunately there wasn't a pile-up.
    So - how do I contact the boss directly? I don't want this buried.
    Thanks.

    Awkward to find out who the directors are unless you know the company number and/or registered name at Companies House. (Plus you'll have to pay for it.) I've only quickly looked through the website and can't find details of who's in charge.

    I would say try one (or more) of the following:

    - call the number from the website;
    - post on the FB page; or
    - get on Twitter and contact them (especially if you have quite a few followers). Use the appropriate hashtags.

    The last option seems to be an effective method in some cases as companies do their utmost to avoid any bad publicity.

    Just as a side note, did you get the registration number of the van and/or have any video recording of the incident? Worth publishing the video if you can't get a response.

    Unfortunately no video.
    Their LinkedIn button doesn't work.

    It's good you got the registration number. Hopefully the company can track which employee was responsible.

    Yes, David Haddock is listed as not currently a company director but used to be director of that company.
    Sounds dodgy at best.

    Oh, it is.
    Fall all the content on the website I think it is a one man operation - have emailed the guy who created it as he is listed under WHOIS.

    He's just a Media Company bloke paid to hack the webthing together. Already been down that Google path. Yer best bet might be to go Police as there's a possibility that he had a dashcam and recorded it himself. You start mouthing off and he'll delete it but if a cop knocks he won't have time. Slim chance, mind. If it was blatant dangerous driving there might be official CCTV to fall back on too.

    And funny how a company that has taken delivery of so much equipment last month doesn't have an address.
    Doesn't show anywhere.

    The thing is, it can't show your part to play in this. If the guy says you were the instigator, it is just as valid in anyone else's eyes. That is unless they have a history of it of course.

    Very frustrating though. Hope you get some sort of resolution.

    My no claims maxed out several years go and I'm the kind of person who takes a route that is a bit longer rather than get involved with idiots. I also plan so there is plenty of time for a journey.
    Anyway, it's not going to rule my life.

    Was the the vehicle an Iveco Daily 34C15.

    Might be used with the graphics still on, but nothing to do with that company.

    That's the thing - this is an awful lot for a company that has folded, has no landline and no address.

    UK Car Registration Plate PN13D registered in Preston drop a letter to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner with date and time junction OTC should be able to get hold of traffic camera data and maybe they will advise Driver Re-training before the PSO license is renewed in May 2014
