    Nearly wrote off me new astra!

    Was driving back to work after my lunch break through an industrial estate and saw this woman turning right. Thought ok....she's turning, saw her look at me then the other way.........ok she'll wait.......OH SHIT! She just turned out the junction looking in the other direction!

    I slammed on the breaks but the car started to skid, she then stopped in the middle of the road and looked at me with this look like she had just S*IT her self! as i was skidding towards her! The car stopped about 1 inch away from her, she then jumped out and started goin off on one at me as if it was my fault!! No offence but i HATE women drivers!

    (The car is still ok though Rob so no worries )
    No more Astra..........Now another German!

    ABS is your friend. I'll never drive another car without it, it's saved my bacon more than once.

    In fact, if the ABS hadn't kicked in on the way home this evening, I'd have been into the back of someone. 20mph, started to slow to the 15mph the traffic infront was doing. There must have been oil on the street, because as soon as I touched (and I mean touched) the brakes, the ABS started beating away. The woman in the Polo behind skidded and had to swerve into the inside lane where she mounted the kerb. I laughed, my £8k Corsa had ABS as standard, her newer Polo probably cost the guts of £10k and no ABS to be seen.

    Is it just over here, or are people everywhere driving like idiots? The last year I've seen so much more bad driving it's not funny. People pulling out when it's not safe, jumping lights...
