Madness Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

To balance the one about old drivers...

Today I was chopped up by another useless, clueless , ignorant young driver forcing me to break so hard that the ABS activated ... A few weeks ago whilst doing nearly 70 mph on a motorway another stupid young driver changed lanes with out looking whilst I was passing them in the outside lane... I was half expecting it as these hormonally driven twits do not look, but rather just heave on the steering wheel to change lanes when they feel like it. car wobbling and bobing as it lurches across the road ....My ABS worked overtime again as the car desperately tried to stop so that I would not drive throught the young fools drivers door.... Recently whilst travelling straight through a roundabout in the left lane another stupid young driver decided to turn left out of the round about from the centre (right lane) when they could 'legally' and sensibly only go straight ahead or right. If I had not imediately done a hard left turn, i.e turning with them and going out of the roundabout rather than travelling ahead we would have has a 'lovely crash'
Every day I come across these fools, hardly ever indicate, do not look when changing lanes ,drive whilst talking on the phone at speeds beyond their and their cars abilities etc etc etc...Imagine how bad they are going to be when they actually grow up and especially when they get old !!!

At one end of the spectrum there are those that think that they can live forever whether they use their brain or not and at the other end of the spectrum there are those that have forgotton that they cannot drive

There are also those who remain hot headed continously through life mate. Problem people, who need to take a powder, in the words of the late Al Capone.:

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

If the roads were full of oldsters only there wouldn't be any accidents... (apart from natural-death-at-the-wheel related ones).

If the roads were full of pimply yoof only, driving would be banned inside 6 months!

Ergo the old duffers keep the death rate down.

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

Unfortunately, I suspect that a lot of it is ignorance rather than hot-headedness. I say unfortunately, because with the hot-headed brigade, at least you can hope that they will grow out of it and calm down a bit

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

This morning I was driving along a 4-lane carriageway in the right-hand lane... I noticed the festiva next to me veering left then over-correcting, they just couldn't keep it straight. Then a cigarette butt gets dumped from their window (another HATE of mine ), so I thought sod this and sped up to get well away from them. I turned to look as I drove past only to see some AIRHEAD teen girl texting(!!!!) and I assume smoking as well before, at the same this as she's "driving". FFS, some people just have no ****ing brains.........

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

Should I be concerned really? Up for a free bus pass now, so may just keep the cars in the garage as a lifetime, ever continuing, hobby, and take one for a drive in the quieter periods, (do that all ready) if and when I go for a 'wee' spin.:

As a current smoker, I don't think it is. Maybe you never quite got the hang of it.

Smoking shouldn't be allowed in any alfa, why risk burning holes in the seats and making the car smell horrid

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

I would like to point out that not ALL younger divers are bad drivers. I am 21 and the amount of times I have been looked down the nose at because I am a young driver is unbelievable.

They all seem to think that I am a **** driver purely because I am young and shouldn't be allowed on the road. Then they pull off at junctions with no indication what-so-ever, no observation going on, slamming on brakes and angry cars tooting at them.

I'm not saying that all young drivers are brilliant drivers 'cos that'd be a lie but you also can't say that all "older" drivers are brilliant either.

I don't think you can say a certain "age group" are worse than others because there are d*ckhead drivers in every "group".

What? smoking in general or smoking when driving? hehe..

I did it a few times and I think its ok in areas where you dont have to change gear much, but juggling a burning cig with everything else wasn't too easy.

In response to Manson, I'm only 22 dude.

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

I would like to meet the toss*r that cut me up on J16 M4 roundabout.I was in my wife's little Fiat waiting for the lights to go green so we could head off east bound on M4 (inside lane for slip road).Next to us was a Skoda Fabby thing Turbo diesel,once the lights changed this toss*r CUT right in front of us taking up both lanes.I sounded the horn (once i found it)to let him know how blind he was,and he backed off.He slowed and pulled up alongside us and him and his (er) wife ( ) started gobbing off at US!!!.They only had to put there hand up as if to say sorry.Too much to ask from some people.I will now be scouting for him armed with an Alfa and a score to settle.

some times I'd love to have some old banger, so when they do things like this I'll sit where I am and damage both cars!

Re: Ignorant , stupid hormonally driven ,young drivers

That is what the old green Vectrobe (shortly to be replaced by a Peugeot Partner van in Burgundy, can't argue with 600 miles to a 45 fill for a grand) is for!

As it already carries 2 slight dents from it's past life it's like a parting of the waves, nobody wants it near them, EVEN Range Rovers!!!!! (Or X5's, even worse them! )

Best ever was a CAT 950G loader. EVERYTHING gave way, 20 tons on artic steered 25mph iron.

sgood!!!!
