    Luckily I haven't experienced too much lunatic driving yet but plenty of dozy driving. Especially in shopping centre car parks - they seem to be full of old people who don't look where they are going - I'm convinced that one day someone's going to drive into me. There are loads of old people around here who drive Gold coloured cars who seem to be half asleep. My theory is that maybe the driving test was really easy back in the 1950s and 1960s and these people really haven't a clue what they are doing!!!

    Yep, i see it everyday.

    Kinda got used to it now so doesnt bother me any more, try driving a bus and see how many time you get cut up by compleate idiots but worst of all are the indersysive (scuse the spelling) drivers who cant make up there minds what the hell they are doing or drive below the speed limits

    I'm afraid to say that it's true. You truly take your life in your hands if you venture onto the roads here. I was rear-ended last year by a 4 wheel drive at a junction. The man was very apologetic but admitted he wasn't concentrating. We exchanged details, like you do, but the following morning his wife (who wasn't even there at the time) turned up on my doorstep playing merry hell!!!!!!!!! :realmad:

    Oh, i can top that one.........................

    last christmas day, on our way to silver sands for a meet up, we was merrily driving south on....south road; we hit the brakes with inches to spare because a car was driving on north on the same stretch of road. Bloody scarey..................:shocked:

     

    The french in paris drive better than most of this lot..............road rules need not apply.

    My experience has taught me that the majority of Commodore drivers are driven by inexperienced young drivers. I hate Commodore drivers.

    Lunatic driving - I see it most days! The state of driving here - and the apathy about it - is one of the worst things about here imho. :mad:

    Couldn't agree more.It's something i have never experienced before,which makes it more of a shock!!!I did see some bad driving in Rome years ago,but as i was on Holiday and not part of it all,it was not an issue personally.Different kettle of fish when you are in the middle of mayhem every day,just trying to get from A to B without Maniacs weaving in and out at speed without even indicating.As you say,the apathy is even more amazing.:confused:

    I met with a richard head this morning at 4am dressed as a Taxi driver, cutting a long story short i reported him to the cops and the Passenger Board. Hopefully he'll be deported on the next boat back.
