Default F f s .

This has probably been said before. The standard of driving today is toss. The number of dickheads with a licence is unreal. When I passed in 89 I was always getting stopped for nowt EG late indicating and other nonsense like that. Now you can drive how you please. Iv seen a woman go the wrong way round a roundabout (a big one with arrows ect).knobs who can't eve follow large directional arrows, pricks doing 25 under the limit (35 in a 60).Red light running by a long way, muppets who don't know what lane to be in at a roundabout and then cutting across my lane. The list is end less and don't get me started on pricks with a phone stuck to their ear. And the age of the majority of these Cock end's 35 to 55. Not young people but ones who should know better. But you know what really get on my tits. The plod are nowhere to be seen untill you go a bit over the limit then there all over your ass. Or the bastards in the camera van lying in wait. hears a handy tip why not go to the retail park and nick the tossers going the wrong way , against the flow of the arrows. If you can be done for being on the phone whilst stopped with engine running in a car park then nick these for going the wrong way. Rant over, over to you

OOOOOOH a rant, love rants

Add to that ........ usually (but not always) women and shall we say "or ethnic brothers and sisters" who havent got a clue what to do at a roundabout, especially mini roundabouts, or who has right of way, so you sit there waiting for them to go and have to wave them on

Or old men over 70, what is the point of them driving, they have had a bus pass since they were 60.

Bloody coffin dodgers.

I will add idiots who cannot read the road and overtake in spectacuarly stupid places like blind bends or the brow of a hill or worse in the face of fast moving oncomming traffic that has to brake suddenly, most especially annoying if they overtake you the swerve into your stopping distance and brake as they have just leapfrogged into a long stream of backed up traffic, where most of the time is it fairly evident that 20 miles down the road they still will not have got to the front of the line of traffic, despite having risked theirs ( frankly good riddance on that front) and others lives with their awfull driving. There is at least 1 volvo estate driver who owes me a new set of undies, and a new axle for my sidecar for such driving, ditches and 60mph hedge brushing dont help keep axles streight, still makes me cross after 10 years. Same nutter missed my mate by inches. Yeah, rant time.

Or the stupid nutters that pull out of a side turning in front of you, and do a dog leg crossing over the main road! Or the stupid idiots that pull out in front of you from the side turning at a sedate 10mph slower than the mainstream of traffic and remain at that speed causing the traffic to slam on their brakes!

I have a bus pass but still ride and drive. Buses don't always go where you want at the time you want. The next government (especially if it's a Tory one) will probably do away with bus passes anyway. You can't use them before 9:30 in the morning and I certainly wouldn't use one when the schools turn out.

Where I live it is the twats that park along bus routes, reducing the road to a single lane for several hundred yards and park right up to the roundabouts, which leaves drivers totally blind to oncoming traffic. Many times I have approached these roundabouts and had some twat sail out, without even looking, causing me to brake sharply. There are also those who think there is an extra charge for using their indicators and just turn without any warning.

I used to love being on the road, the freedom and speed was exhilarating, now it is just traffic jams, potholes and dickheads, especially those who think they are more important than you and must get to the head of any hold-up to push in front of those who have waited patiently.

I'm pretty lucky where I live, we think traffic jam is something you buy in Tesco for a packed lunch.

But I have visited some of the uncivilised places that you older folk live.

One I forgot to mention. The cars with auto lights that don't Turn on when Iit's foggy or drizzling . This should be removed from car's as the clown behind the wheel thinks there automatic so they must be on. NO THERE NOT ON YOU TOSSER. that's why I can't see you. Silver cars are the hardest to see. That crash o the sheppie bridge in Kent was caused by these tossers.

We examine repaired written off cars and I notice a huge number of silver and grey cars amongst them.

Yep all those, specially bloody women of course! And bloody BMW drivers who are usually but not always men, AND bloody stupid motorcyclists who hang on my offside rear quarter wanting to overtake so I hardly dare to brake, etc etc...

Did eny one see that news report on that scum bag that hit a car at 80 mph in a 30 zone after running the red light.killed the poor guy in the other car. It said that the car was a hire car. HOW CAN SOME ONE HIRE A CAR WITH NO LICENCE AND ONLY 19. Its not like he had just took it that night as he did 142 mph on m way night before. Bragging that it took 11 minutes from Rochdale to leeds. What I want to know is if he didtnot hire the car , who did and are they also being prosecuted.PS THIS TWAT GOT 6 YEARS. SO OUT IN 3 PPS suprized he did t fuck off to pakistan before it got to court. Not suprized he had no license as they all drive on one. Just put a LS post code In and see how much your insurance go's up.

Up ahead was a HGV, so on seeing this both my self and car wait till its safe andexpectve over to lane two. The mini bus stays in lane one and I now closing in on the HGV. As the car draws level with the mini bus he decides to indicate and starts to move over a blast on the hornstops this prick just pulling out. i drive past were this cock is giving me the wanker sign.TOSSER. me and the car saw theHGV in good time and moved over .Thi tosser didnt see beyond his bonnet and then expects every one to move over.PS lane three was full and im fucked i im sling down for these fools.

I always try to drive in lane one wherever possible and if I get behind an HGV with vehicles coming up fast in lane two, I do a really stupid thing and slow down to match the HGV till the vehicles have passed, then I pull out. It is a fact of life that most drivers have what I call 'I'm more important than you syndrome' which gives them the right to cut you up, block lanes of traffic and jump queues.

Default Defensive driving.

Some years ago I was employed as a service engineer which involved some 50 to 60 thousand miles a year driving a car. We were sent on a 'Defensive driving' course. this course was all about preventing people from having an 'incident' around you. Probably the best course I have ever attended and fully appropriate for bike riding.

Most of the stuff talked about here can be avoided with the correct techniques and observations. If you get the chance, do the course.
