    Road Rage!

    Tried to post one up earlier but got removed, presume its for the language used in it.

    Basically was hoping to create somewhere for people to vent their anger at other drivers rather than filling facebook with :
    "The guy in the bmw that cut me up, i hate him"

    Maybe fill this up with :
    "The tool in the BMW 3series that is incapable of indicating yet can use his hands free, have a fag and eat brekfast whilst driving . . . Im going to get you"

    Wee bits of detail and we'll find out who the worst drivers on the road are

    Friday afternoon - driving down a 30 street going past shops, theres a one way entrance on the right and some knob comes flying out of it without looking almost hits my car, and clips a railing. On his phone, old volvo estate, fag in hand aswell. Personally i thought that was skillfully daft and kinda hoped he'd went through the railing into the other traffic

    Over use of brakes instead of gears to slow down, and complete needless use of brakes going through a straight road.

    People who have their names chromed onto the back of their car ie
    " Corsa 1.2 Twinport
    Chantelle"

    Wee bams that drive corsa's as if they race cars

    Last week I seen a OAP come out of 2nd gear & was doing more than 23mph oO

    Didnt think anyone could possibly make a done up corsa any more tackier, then BOOOM! I saw it
    or rather heard the drilled exhaust, and "New Monkey Posse" as it drove past sounding like a tank then i saw a big shiny "Chantelle!;)" on the back, with a vinyl playboy bunny on the boot aswell

    Worst day ever

    Last week i was driving and the guy in front of me stopped at red lights, I was really annoyed so i pulled up beside him put my window down and said... Oi No! and then drove off!

    Aherm. As someone who drives a Corsa 1.2 Twinport, did go a little bit fast yesterday (I just got carried away) shortly before using breaks on a straight road (there was a speed camera coming up), who doesn't understand why I would want to use gears to slow down instead of breaks, and who is also Scottish, I feel more than a little victimised by this post.

    Is that in case it scares the Bike ?

    Had to drive around a pothole the other day & it cost me over £2 in petrol ffs.

    Indeed, some are responsible, sadly though I see too many going through red lights, not keeping remotely near the kerb, swinging across the road without looking to turn right and even some at night with no lights or reflectors and dark clothing on fast roads!

    I hate cyclists on the road.
    Especially on a long main road where each time you overtake them and stop at the traffic lights, they cycle past and you have to do it all over again (each time the room given decreases by the centimetre)

    people who get into the wrong lane on roundabout then cut me up!!!!

    have you thought that if they constantly overtake you on the same road at lights that you may be quicker cycling yourself? Save money, get fit etc?? Come on, join us!!

    Brakes are for stopping/slowing, .........gears are for going.

    Cars edging out at junctions or roundabouts!

    Cars speeding up to a roundabout even though they know they're going to have to stop as your cycling across it at that time. Last minute braking isn't cool folks!

    Do you have your name chrome plated into the back of the car though ? Aye i understand the braking for the speed camera and all that we all do it but when theres no need to gently tap the brakes for a while why not drop a gear and slow more steadily ?

    Driving properly actually means being in control of the car at all times, and being able to control your speed without using brakes is actually meant to be good driving . . . Your probably one of the people that slams the brakes on

    Indeed, you take a bike so you can cycle, to the train station, get on the train take up far too much room, get off the train causing chaos, and cycle on the pavements through busy town centres ?

    Pick what your doing, either cycle the full way or public transport it the full way not half and half

    Just my opinion

    Just don't cycle on the tracks please!

    Cyclists who insist on using the road, slowing the traffic to a crawl, even tho they have a specially built cycle path about 4 miles long.

    Had 3 near misses today actually, seems all the idiots are out on the roads today.
    1 car indicates left, then changes his mind at the last second and almost hits me.
    Then on a roundabout, 3 lanes, van in the right lane cuts across me(in middle) to go left?!?!
    Finally on another roundabout, guy was going so fast he almost didnt stop as he came to roundabout.

    To think these people all passed their tests, while my poor wife failed for pulling away too slowly after she stopped.

    But that only proves that they can drive to a basic standard, not that they will continue to do so.

    I do, though I feel a bit a bit of a prat when all the other cyclists go straight through it.

    BMW drivers are the most arrogant pompous headed tools on the road, they are all the same it's weird. Closely followed by high end Land Rover owners.

    Cyclists that cycle two abreast, I toot my horn as I pass and they wave the finger in the background thinking that they're allowed to.

    There is a roundabout at the top of the main road where i live and on one side every other driver will use the right hand lane to go straight over and nearly crash into me everytime i use it!!!

    Sadly though, cyclists don't have numberplates so we can't say which are the useless ones

    Just had a look and it says that Ford drivers are the worst? I'm guessing BMW isn't on their list... (and yes, I drive a Focus)

    True, they should have some form of visible ID though, maybe even a test to be sat before you are allowed to cycle on the road.

    Just went onto that site aswell, my car has not been flagged:) although my dads has brilliant
