Bit of a rant as I feel I need to let off some steeeaaaaaaammm!..
Q. Why oh why do people persist to drive with sunglasses on in their motor vehicles when it is not even necessary?!.
On the way to work this morning 6.40am and not even a particularly bright morning at that, I am on a quiet 50mph dual carriageway with light traffic, and uphead of me in the overtaking lane is an Audi A4 Cabriolet. Seriously sticking to the carriageway speed limit, it appears I am slowly gaining on the Audi who must be pottering along at 35 / 40mph which is fine, but this is in the overtaking lane with no other car out in front.
The driver of the Audi passed up numerous occassions to drop into the slow lane when safe to do so, in order that I could pass and carry on with my journey to work. I continue to gain with every few metres on the car in front, and still no reaction or sign of the Audi pulling across... At first I am convinced the driver of the Audi is deliberately not moving over to wind me up.. (Situation when the car in front is travelling at a speed where you cannot under or overtake) but still I remain calm. By this point we have travelled roughly a mile.
Eventually we are both gaining on and begin passing a Smart car that is on the inside lane. At this point it seems the Driver of the Audi wakes up realises that I am behind them, indicates and instantly pulls straight into the slow lane and straight into the path of the smart car, who had to brake hard taking evasive measures to avoid behind totalled..
I finally passed the bemused Smart car driver and then began passing the Audi, I look across at the driver in disgust only to see the driver of the Audi wearing Sunglasses and fixing her hair! WTF ....The Audi was completely oblivious to what they had just done!....
A fashion accessory they maybe, but in my opinion driving with the Sunglasses on in conditions that didn't warrant it, hampered the drivers reactions and ability to drive.. I was fuming as this was all needless and couldv'e resulted in a serious accident.....
