Has anyone seen the film Duel from the 1970s, Steven Spielberg’s first movie? In it, a businessman driving across America overtakes a truck, the driver of which gets angry. The conflict between them escalates into an epic road battle as the truck tries to run him off the road. Today I experienced something similar. Me and five other passengers were in a car to Mukomuko when the driver overtook a small truck in front of us. Within minutes the truck was zooming past us again. The driver overtook the truck again, this time almost killing an oncoming motorcyclist. A few minutes later and the truck was hurtling past us despite our driver trying to block it from doing so. Then the truck came to a dead stop in the middle of the road and the car pulled up just in time, almost rear-ending. The two drivers got out and our driver grabbed the truck driver by the throat. The front passenger of our car had also got out and he separated the two. His wife, also on board, had earlier told me he was a policeman so I felt relieved he was there. Soon peace was restored and both vehicles went on their way, with the truck going far ahead. About an hour later we caught up and I could feel all the fellow passengers tense as we again overtook the truck. Thankfully this time the truck stayed behind and we never saw it again.
