LC07XBJ - Dangerous Sevenoaks Driver

In a notoriously bad spot for cycling (see for example here) due to poor and impatient drivers, I had this run in yesterday.

Firstly the driver was tailgating and overtook me in “follow-the-leader” mode (seemingly not noticing that the car ahead was turning right). This resulted in the driver left hooking me. Then the driver tailgated me until just before the oncoming traffic cleared (and it would have been safe to overtake). At that point he/she “squeezed past” (overtook too close).  This was not necessary - the road widens a short distance ahead where it is safe to overtake.  Notice too that the driver triggered the speed sensor after overtaking.
