    driving standards

    hold your breath, a rants a coming

    Is it just me or a lot of people on the roads just plain, cant drive? the reason i bring this up is one my way home last night i had 3 people try to run me off the road.
    The first pulled out right infront of me on a roundabout, didnt even look, i had to swerve to stop me smaking him straight in the side
    The second tried a game of chicken. I was going downhill with roadworks coming up on the other side of the road, the guy waiting at the roadworks decided he could make it past them before i got there (no chance), he pulled out on my side of the road about 20 metres infront of me and headed towards me, i made to slam on my brakes (causing me to skid on the wet road) to stop what would have been a rather nasty head-on "accident" he just managed to over his side of the road before i hit him
    And to top if off not 5 minutes later on a dual carriageway i was passing a guy, using his mobile phone while driving, he decided he wanted the lane i was in and pulled right infront of me not an idicator in sight, nearly hit him up the arse because he was going slower than i was.

    No i could understand if i was speeding at any of these incidents but i wasnt if i had been there was no way i could have stopped for any of them, really pi$$es me off, To$$ers

    get used to it mate more and more people like that are on the roads these days. i dont have a day when someone nearly goes into my car or pulls out in front of me, guess they think oh well they will stop coz they care about there car so much. The drivers i find worse are the ones in works vans and lorrys dont give a F*%K about theres or anyone elses cars

    I have also noticed this trend and it is getting rather annoying, Have you also noticed that people are doing all this while driving slower! I mean why drive slow then cut people up as if your in a hurry?

    Were they all taxi drivers by any chance? How some of them get their licenses i'll never know.

    Since christmas i've never seen so many poor drivers around.

    No offence aimed at the women on these forums but even my gf agrees that there's so many crap women drivers out there.

    well today i seen a guy going round a round about and a huge lorry on his mobile :? plain dangerouse if you ask me

    then i have another guy cut me up. both our lanes were for going left and we went round he decided he wanted into my lane and didnt even indicate, just missing my front end. so i blasted the horn and then he starts shouting at me as if it was my fault

    needless to say i kindly told him where to go and if it wasnt for his kids in the back i would have got out at the next set of lights and slaped him bitch style
