Odd one this week on Ranty Friday but this is…
Having a bit of a rant today about drivers that don’t think one step ahead.
You know the ones. The ones that think “Keep Clear” signs painted on roads don’t apply to them. They think it is decoration and that if they drive into them and don’t make eye contact with anybody we won’t notice.
Or those that are in a slow moving queue of traffic, you are in a side road waiting to join that queue and do they let you out? Hell no. That would delay their journey but three nano seconds. Not only will they not let you out, they are going to stop right across the junction so you can’t even nose your way out.
Or when you are waiting in the middle of the road to turn right into a side road. You have a queue of traffic patiently waiting behind you. Coming towards you is another steady stream of traffic that you cannot cross. And then you see a car that is indicating that they want to turn into the same side road as you. Surely they will slow sufficiently to allow you to turn in front of them?
OH NO THEY WON’T. Because, yet again that would slow them down by three nano seconds and they are FAR too important to even contemplate letting somebody out in front for them.
So please fellow drivers, stop being so damned selfish!
