Single Sentence Rant

Ford Puma nearly ran us over on a zebra crossing, even though we waited to let a few cars pass before crossing. :***:

Re: Single Sentence Rant

You shouldn't have had to wait as it is your right of way.

Not sure about this any more - it's been a long time but...

I think you have right of way only once you have started to cross. Not that it excuses the Puma at all for driving like a you-know-what.

Aye! But Marksie doesn't want to be in the right if he's also in the casualty department A&E.

I don't think Puma tool thought he had right of way .. more like he just wasn't paying any attention.

We were about halfway across (wide city centre road), didn't have to dive out of the way or anything, but did have to stop sharpish when we realised she was driving through regardless.




(that's three sentences now, maybe I should stick to my usual long winded rants )

Re: Single Sentence Rant

Zebra crossing are just a waste of white paint down here.

Re: Single Sentence Rant

ahhhh, brings back memories of a weekend, dodging traffic in Paris
at least they blow the horn to warn you they will run you over

weekend got of to a good start when the coach from CDG knocked a bloke off his moped, (he was OK, a bit of shouting at each other seemed to sort it out),
