Standard of driving appalling


Recommended Posts

Hi, hope everyone is well, this is bit of a rant, every day this, whether if im going to work, or out with the family, i have some small minded imbecile so far up my chuff i can see their eye colour, always seems to be the same brands, (VW Group) anyone else experience this??

I dont understand why they do this, does this brand give some sort of higher authority feeling, i mean they aren't particularly appealing cars, quite boring in fact

I've had it with BMW drivers too. Maybe it has something to do with torquey diesel cars most drive and enjoy the thrill of the acceleration and power on tap?

Sadly lack of traffic officers and enforcement through cuts over the years has led to such a decline in driving standards.

Keep up with traffic today’s standard, seriously poor. One thing are the cars, which actually make you drive that way but the biggest issue is the brainless creatures behind the wheels. Just try not paying attention to these and keep away and safe. 👍

My biggest bug bear is lack of indication on round a bouts if they can do it on the driving test why not afterwards.

It’s about time motor manufacturers devised a system for a vehicle to indicate automatically never mind auto lights and wipers etc.😡

Agreed. Mostly black Audi’s and BMW. 
anything less than a 320 surprised by Power mode though.

Indicating on roundabouts wasn’t taught as a rule post 2005 so you can tell the age of a driver before you see them if that is the case.

No excuse for poor driving. Good drivers always drive as they do it on snow, many drivers doesn’t even know how to drive on snow at all. , what else can we comment. These awareness courses are ultra helpful and should be made mandatory after the first year of obtaining a driving license and every few years then after., not only if caught speeding. But nobody cares about teaching the people, nor they want to know or learn., now driverless cars are behind the corner who will be interested of investing in people’s safety and comfort on the roads. Everything is wrong here.

It's the aggressive drivers for me. Went and took my Nan some shopping in  Birmingham and was overtaken by a white AMG hatchback on the high street using the oncoming traffic right hand turn  lane to a supermarket to zip past and cut infront of me.  I Beeped my horn as had to veer left and brake to avoid her.. Then trying to overtake others, but high street rammed. Noticed She either closed sunroof or turned on dash cam or both, Got to traffic lights and Merc in right hand turn lane and a young skinny 20 year old woman driving! Asked her what She was playing at, but kept looking ahead and dancing her head to music or drugged up. Probably didn't hear properly as both had windows up.

Lights changed and I went straight on. Heard a beep as roared and cut up cars behind me to create her own middle lane and shot past me just missing my car. Deliberate cut in again. Light on green at bottom of hill and She stopped in road. I held right back as did other motorists and as lights changed She turned right.

I'm very laid back. If my Dad had been alive he would of chased her and rammed her car deliberately, especially if blocked him in or couldn't get round. 

My Dad rammed a BMW Drivers car Twice.

We as a family went out for the Day in my Dad's Renault 18 in the mid 90's. Driving through Brum, stopped at lights a black BMW 740I pulled literally inches from the passenger side of my Dads car in the turn left lane. My Nan was in the front seat and wound the electric window down and asked the gold chain and ring wearing chap to please go! Cot told to F off. My Dad asked nicely and as he roared off hit my Dads car!

My Dad went ape. Chased him for a mile into a garage forecourt. He had the passenger door partially open and was leaning over into the glovebox. My dad saw this and immediately rammed his door shut! He opened it again and went for ram 2, this time harder. The glass in the door shattered. Reversed and roared off left through a red light. His Mom and my Sister screaming. My Dad rammed the door as thought he was going for a weapon as opened passenger door. Pulled into bus stop and only damage was plastic bumper had come off clip! Surprising as Merc door was stoved in!

Another time when he was on his own in the Welsh borders at 2am had a car behind constantly on horn and flashing lights at him. Let them pass and threw beer cans at his car as they went past, then waited for him and did same. My Dad got so far and decided to go a different way home. Unfortunately after 6 miles back behind my Dads car again drove past and doing emergency stops and giving him the V sign and chucking cans at his car. Overtook them at speed and still chasing him. Stopped, put his 4WD Subaru 1800 estate into 4WD and reversed at speed and smashed into the ford escort XR31, lights out, bonnet folded and pushed it into a steep ditch with them in it. Drove to a phone box. Called the police and said I have just seen 4 skinheads crashed in a ditch on the Bxxx think they lost control on bend as p*****! Put phone down. Damage was slightly crushed bumper, but tow bar taken the hit.

I myself like the quiet sedate drive and like my cars undamaged!
