    Idiots behind the wheel

    For the 2nd time this week I have been stuck in long delays driving to work because of a crash on the motorway and it's only Wednesday! I car share so often I'm the passenger and watch what other drivers are up to. Despite the increased penalties there are still people using their phones causing them to swerve about in lanes. Add in those that drive far too close to the car in front and 'white van man' types jumping in and out of lanes trying to get further up the road.
    I also go through a set of lights every day where the road widens into 2 lanes then immediately back down to 1 lane and it is a slow crawl through the lights as the traffic ahead is slow moving yet you still get idiots who think it's OK to pull out and jump a few cars then back in again. Why??? You wouldn't do it in a supermarket queue so why when you are driving? They are quite literally sticking 2 fingers up at everyone else because they think they are more important.


    Relax......and breathe........ rant over.

    All caused by Arrogance, Ignorance and Impatience - not necessarily in that order and in any combination

    you want to try driving in Inverness.

    No one indicates, or stays in the correct lane, or worries about cutting a cross traffic on a roundabout, taking the shortest route across 2 or 3 lanes. Giving way to the right, i swear most have never heard of.

    My main gripe is when people refuse to use a filter lane because they think it looks rude. THEY EXIST FOR A REASON.

    Yep, I'm that guy who speeds past you all and cuts back in at the top. Because that's what that lane is meant for!

    People think they are invincible when driving

    Seen some awful driving recently, everyone is in a rush with no where to go.

    I'd love to know why you think it's OK to jump the queue? Everyone is patiently waiting their turn then you appear.

    And I suppose you get arsey when the person at the front of the queue refuses to let you back in? As already mentioned, you are a selfish grade A t1t
