    Question People getting into the wrong lane after turning...

    Why do people consistently do this?

    Are there some roads where the road markings are ignored because it makes more sense to get into the left lane for going left and right for going on straight?

    Twice in a row in a place in the city centre I've come up to a place where my lane can go on straight or turn left and the lane in the left can ONLY turn left. I want to get in the lane on the right after turning, so I go in the right lane. The guy in the left lane HAS to get in the left lane after turning, right?

    So why did I see two guys going into the right lane (after turning left) today and cutting me off AGAIN, without even indicating??? They probably thought I was the one who was at fault, and this happened twice in a row!!! Surely people realise that they have to look into other people's lanes to see where they can go after the lights???

    Nicegirls you don't have to worry about this kind of thing once you have paid your fare let the bus driver worry about the other drivers.

    combination of poor driving education in schools, bad roads and allowing learner drivers to drive unaccompanied

    i agree with you 100% Nicegirlsarenice, i see that alot. What i'm going to rant about now is similar. Why is it that when you come up to a roundabout which does not have traffic lights at them, that the cars do not stop - they just carry on regardless, an odd one maybe looking to their right hand side with the corner of their eye, but what good is that? You slow down coming up to a roundabout and stop, TO HAVE A LOOK IF ANYTHING IS COMING FROM ALL ANGLES!! Thats what you're supposed to do! I don't know how these muppets passed their driving test, and to be honest alot of dickheads out there do not have a licence, insurance, tax etc. to be out on the road. If u want to kill yourself on the road and don't give a shit what u do when you're driving then u go ahead and keep that attitude, but uts the other poor innocent fuckers out there - other road users, cyclists, pedestrians etc., that bear the brunt of your stupid fucking actions.

    And another thing, why is it that if you come up to a roundabout, and you want to take the 3rd exit from it (ie turn right at the roundabout), that some spannerheads go left and then take a big swing to go right...with or without an indicator....they think they need an unmerciful swing to turn right....and they're "driving" an Opel Corsa!! Or a NIssan Micra or a Toyota Yaris!!!!!! I mean a bus or an artic wouldn't need to take such a big swing. And that is very dangerous, if you don't indicate but wish to turn right at the roundabout, you move over a bit to the left to turn right, the fella in the car behind you see's that you don't have an indicator on so the normal thing to presume in that situation is that the car is going on straight, but all of a sudden the fucking muppet turns right, out in front of you, as you who have been coming up the inside is indicating o turn right and is at the correct part of the roundabout just about to turn when Micky Cuntyhooks goes straight out in front of you, and when you blow the cunt out of it he can't understand what he's got beeped for! Fucking assholes. Dangerous cunts. People will loose their lives because of stupid bastards like this.

    Again, what i see every day drives me mad, is the fact that nobody indicates anymore. What is the story with that? Are they trying to save power in their orange flashing bulbs called INDICATORS? Why don't they just, when they are driving a car, ask for a car without indicators and therefore save themself a few quid? Its unbelievable. Also, people crossing, and staying across, the centre white line of a road, as in driving down the centre/middle of the road when there is no need to do this? I fuckin hate cunts that do this. People parking in bus stops, parking in loading bays, double-yellow lines, wheelchair spaces where they are not disabled drivers and don't have a valid card, although their brains are obviously disabled, all that pisses me off big time. There could be a car parking space 20 or 30 yards up ahead of you but you just insist on parking in the bus stop and reading the paper. Also, people at junctions or whatever, the road is quiet or clear, meaning that they can drive onto the road from the junction/side road etc that they are coming from, but no, what do they do?,....they wait for a car to approach the junction and when it does, they drive straight out in front of them. They just like to be seen thats all. And also those boy-racers, aka Muppets in their muppet-mobilees. They sit at traffic lights or a juction and you hear them revving the engine, .... brum, brum, brrruuummmm, brrrrrruuuuummmmmm bbbrrrrruuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!. I say to myself that 'you have to release the handbrake in order for it to ove, you fucking muppet! And possibly get someone to give you a push aswell. And they crawl through a city street about 5mph, then all of a sudden when they see someone or where the road is narrow and u get closer to the city, they put the shoe down and do 50mph. Eh hello?! You go from 50mph on the main road and slow down to 30mph when you get to the city, but they get it tits up. Assholes. And people who ares itting at traffic light, they stop on top or just over the white line, and they get pissed off for sitting at traffic lights for more than 10 seconds that they keep edging and rolling up and up and up, way past the lights/white stop line at the lights, i mean as if thats gonna make the fucking lights change to green quicker. Dopey cunts. The lights are timed you muppets.

    You wouldn't think i have road-rage would you LOL. But scumbags who call themselvers 2drivers2 and do anything like this should be hung up by the balls and left there, it would make the place alot safer for innocent people who don't deserve to be the intent of your stupid actions. Old drivers doing 60kph max on a big main road which has a limit of 100kph or even 80kph, but they just sit there at 50-60kph and don't even move over into the hard shoulder to let u pass even where there is sufficent space to do so, although i know technically you're not supposed to do this, but if they drove at the speed they are supposed to go at then there would be no need for them to move into the hard shoulder. Even Lorry/truck drivers and bus/coach drivers are very decent and most of them are fairly obliging in that they move over to let you pass if they are going slower than the limit of the road (a lorry and bus can only travel at 80kph on any road even if the road has a limit for 100kph, although the lorries and buses are all limited at 100/102kph, but they are only allowed to do 100kph on a dual-carriageway and motorway, double deckers are only allowed to do about 45mph (65-70kph), that is all Irish government rules.

    I think if every single person was made do the driving test again then there would nnot even be half the amount of cars/vehicles on the road as there is now because none of them would pass the test. Useless dangerous bastards who wouldn't drive nails into a fucking wall.
