More bad driving caught on camera.
In my previous film posted a couple of years back http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7a5vx... I tried to offer some advise, it had a mixed response; those that make an effort to drive well agreed and liked the video, whilst others took a rather defensive approach, and said that none if it mattered - proving their own lack of skills and getting upset that anyone may point out their faults. So this time I thought rather than trying to help, I'd just take the piss instead. Hope you like.
I couldn't really decide what to call this, there is little that is dangerous here, but certainly careless, ignorant, rubbish and bad.
This is a duel-carriageway, speeds of upto 70mph are permitted, and one of the biggest complaints most of us have about the way people drive is to do with lane dispilne, yet as you can see, here are three cars dordling along on the outside lane at just under 50mph. No wonder some get road rage. The worst bit is this; see the L-plate on the back of this Ford - that's someone being taught how to drive.
As I come off this roundabout I have to stop, because some daft woman has decided to turn around in the middle of the road - there's a roundabout just there! Also, no seatbelt on, she veers across the lane in front of me, and then goes through a red light.
This van driver doesn't have to block the road while waiting to turn right, see, he could have move out of the way and let the guy behind go - would that have been too much effort?
Dabbing the brakes all the way down a hill, it is very stupid. Those are warning lights, they send a message to the driver behind, and message is false. Should this car have to stop suddenly - there will be no warning - come on, think about it, this is how crashes happen!
Why can't bus drivers park without leaving the arse hanging out into the road?
If you're driving up a hill, you don't really need to brake for bends, all you're doing is using up more fuel, and again giving off a false signal. Useless driving that is.
Off to buy some beer, and... what the hell is this - is it really necessary to cut the corner that much?
Some drivers just do not know how to turn off the road. Look at the state of this. Is it a learner driver driving illegally, or another bad driver that's going to pass on their useless skills to their offspring. Whatever, this driver needs some proper lessons.
Coming up, another Mercedes driver that hasn't got the hang of the steering wheel - just as well my brakes work - idiot!
In front of the Punto is a Focus wanting to turn right, it has passed the Peugeot wanting to turn right in the opposite direction and has blocked up the traffic. How brainless is this - if you'd had let the Peugeot go you wouldn't be stuck - you tool!
Smart move there, didn't you notice that massive writing on the road that says 'keep clear'
Hi, I drive a Mercedes SL, I can stop where the hell I like, I don't care about the double yellow lines or the entrance I'm blocking, would you like to see my Rolex?
It's not just Mercedes drivers who stop where ever they like, this one's doing the same, probably for a chat about picnics and baby puke.
Have you ever seen anyone park quite as badly is this, this Golf is straight and inbeteen the lines, although only half of the car is in the space - about 8' of it is hanging out into the road! Amazing!!
When parking on the wrong side of the road, turn your lights off, the beam is angled to the left to avoid dazzling the oncoming traffic - like you are doing right now! And turn those fog lights off too - come on - use your brain!
Driving at 30 along a 50 limit is not only annoying for those behind you, but boring too. I'm keeping my distance still, but those behind me are not, and sadly there's no opportunity to overtake. Even if I double the speed of this clip it doesn't seem that fast. This guy has obviously forgotten that he left his caravan at home.
School run traffic, isn't it just the most irritating thing. The middle-class attitude really hacks me off - they bang-on about environmental issues with closed-minded catch phrases and then clog up the roads with their BMW X5s and Volvo C90s - all just to save their little darlings a half-hour walk.
