Rant of the Day - Road Rage... [Mar. 23rd, 2004|08:45 am]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |productiveproductive]

"Hello everyone. My name is Dave, and I have Road Rage."

Not the kind of Road Rage where you jump out of your car with a baseball bat, and pulp the living rap out of the poor old lady who cut you up by mistake.

No. I'm referring to the kind of Road Rage caused by drivers on the road who simply have no respect whatsoever for other drivers.

Case in point:
This morning, I was driving to work through Slough. Anyone who knows Slough well, will know the bus lane that starts at the old Co-op (now Tesco) roundabout, down towards the Lascelles Road junction. This twit of a driver cut everyone up in the bus lane, driving on the inside of the queue of traffic, and pulled in very sharply behind me. The guy who was originally behind me (before the twit cut him up) let him know how much he didn't appreciate that particular manoeuvre. The twit then overtook me on the outside (at this point the road is only one lane wide), and then cut in in front of me. I then let him know how much I didn't appreciate that particular manoeuvre. He looked shocked! As if to say, "What did I do?" So, I told him... at length. Of course, all he could see was me moving my mouth and pointing at him. So he just overtook the bus that was originally in front of me, and zoomed off into the sunrise.

What a knobend.

Anyway, it's occurred to me that probably 90% of all Road Rage is caused by a lack of Road Respect from other drivers.

*growls* car drivers in bus lanes, *growls*

I've grassed up drivers to the police for driving in bus lanes in the past and will do again. People who do that shit I have no mercy for and I'd make it hard for them to cut infront of me without endangering life and limb though.

I have seen people do the exact same thing and then have a head on crash with a JCB once though, just beautiful, no one was hurt but the car was a write off *grins*
Made sure I stayed til the police came and told them EXACTLY what happened, saw the ass driver getting put into the police van *evil grin*

Move to the country. Drivers are (slightly) better here and road rage is less common.

I realise this isn't exactly practical ;-)

I will simply agree, rather than explain why, because once I get going on this subject, I'm liable to have an aneurism.

Terry started driving coz he wanted to take me out places when we first started dating, that was over severn years ago, durring that time he has enjoyed it, gave him freedom and choice, but now he hates driving coz of all the arse wipes out on the road these days. I don't think I ever want to drive.
