    Default Driving Habits

    Went for a long drive to see my mother this weekend at the other end of the country. Always when I take a long drive I see so many examples of bad driving.

    This weekend was no exception. People not able to maintain speed and you overtake them 100 times. People not able to look in their mirrors and they cut out in front of you while overtaking them on the motorway causing you to brake sharply. People driving constantly in the outside lane at 115kph and won't move over. People overtaking you and then darting right back into your lane 5 feet in front of you. And then slowing down !!!

    One thing I saw this weekend on my travels was a world of people pulled in on the hard shoulder changing flat tyres. Don't normally see that many but there were loads. And it made me notice now little room has been left on hard shoulders to pull over .... peoples arses were just feet from cars whizzing past at 120 .... I'm sure they must have felt drafts down the cracks of their arses. Of course they should call a rescue service rather than expose themselves to that danger.

    It's no wonder we've a bad road safety record. Driving habits are dreadful in this country.

    Totally agree the standard of driving in this country is abysmal I have driven extensively in the UK and on the continent and imho the standards of driving is much higher, that's not to say they have there fair share of idiots as well but in general particularly on motor ways the standard is better. Its one of my pet hates idiots sitting in the outside lane of a motor way wit the middle and inside lanes virtually free and as for round abouts this seems to be a total mystery to most people , its a wonder that there aren't more people killed on our roads.

    This is a serious pet hate of mine, once on a motorway I hit the cruise control and pisses me off the amount of times you overtake the same bloody car, especially women, they must hate been overtaken, once you do they speed up whiz away in front of you only to catch up with them a few miles down the road and overtake them again aaarggh
