Bird or Bloke - Part 2 (with Poll this time!)

Who says stereotypes don't work?

Introducing "Bird or Bloke?" - AO's attempt to get to the truth about bad driving habits.

There'll be a series of "bad driving" situations. All you have to do is vote for who does it more often. It'll be a pool of our shared experiences/prejudices and at the very least will enlighten you, or allow you to defend yourself against your better half, when they challenge you "Oh yeah.. says who?"

Here we go then:

Hogging middle lane on m/way: Bird or Bloke?

Both, in fact, all. 90% of motorway traffic seems to be in the middle lane. Apart from a few people who venture out to overtake as soon as I appear in their rear view mirror.

Re: Bird or Bloke - Part 2 (with Poll this time!)

I have to agree with Badger on this one. More often than not, I am the only one on the inside lane of a motorway with literally hundreds of cars in the middle or outside lane.

Lane discipline in this country is diabolical

But, in the spirit of this poll, I would have to vote blokes (as, in my experience, birds don't like driving on the motorways and will always try to delegate that job.... )

usually a bloke, if it is a woman she will be hunched right over the steering wheel. Lane disciplin works great in germany people just dont seem to get it here

Re: Bird or Bloke - Part 2 (with Poll this time!)

I find on the drive from here to Geelong its quicker to stick in the left hand lane and just undertake all the stupid pricks in the outside and middle lanes travelling 10-15kmh below the speed limit. Of course some then take offence to be undertaken an speed of into the distance, no skin off my nose.

I think people are scared of merging, pansies.
