Some BMW drivers

I do wonder how some of them got past potty training. This very morning a brand new BMW trying to park in a space that was too small and not really a parking space anyway. List of crimes and misdemeanours:
1, Doing a U turn on a yellow box junction.
2, Doing said U turn when observing a red light.
3, Trying to park on the corner of the junction
4, Being unable to get the car in the space deciding to leave its tail in the lane and block all traffic coming across the box junction.
5, Parking on double yellow lines
6, Thinking because his hazard lights were flashing that this was somehow OK !

:headbang:

Yes, I admit it's not just BMW drivers but somehow I was not surprised because it was a BMW. If it had been another brand I think I would have been more surprised and perhaps more annoyed ! I felt resignation at the stupidity and ignorance of the driver involved.

Probably comes with it being a company car. You can just damage it without any of the worry you'd have if it was your own car. I never look at a new BMW and assume it is anything but a company car but that doesn't only go for that marque. When my Giulietta was new people assumed I couldn't be crazy enough to buy it with my own money.

Idiots drive all sorts of vehicles.

The other day I was nearly in collision with an Ambulance after it pulled out in front of me.

No blue lights on, but decided just to pull straight out in front of me from a side turn on the right.

Afterwards they put the lights on.

If the lights had been on in the first place I have stopped to let it pull out.

I drive my old E12 very well thank you. Unfortunately I'm seeing more and more nobish Alfa drivers too. Especially in the mito. It's far to fashionable for its own good!

I never notice Astra drivers.

The cars just blend into the background mush.

I've been saying it for years about German car drivers...they honestly think they own the road..I'm convinced of it I'm sorry to say..I'm on the roads and motorways everyday and witness it..I'm not trying to provoke anybody,far from it,but like I said I see it

Absolutely. In particular, drivers of 3-door Astras of the type pictured seem to be tailgating, non-indicating, fag end discarding, terrible loud music playing, excessive speeding in urban areas, brainless ****wits. They also adopt that weird driving position where the seat is almost entrirely reclined and their knees are up around their ears so they can reach the steering wheel. They also sport what I call the thick haircut where the (usually scarred and spotty) head is shaved to the bone on the back and sides, and slightly longer and combed forward on top. They also tend to hand around maccy dees with their hands down the front of their tracky bottoms-tucked-in-socks looking like they've escaped from Jermey Kyle's green room.

So basically Astras are driven by Chavs.

Just witnessed another "I own the road jack" BMW driver on a 65 plate in blue travelling down the M66 in the outside lane flashing at me and probably countless other drivers to move over bcos he's in a new BMW,he as more money than me,his journey is more important,and the "fast"lane is for him only....it makes me wonder how they get by everyday without somebody giving them a slap...t*sser

****** him.....if there is a car behind you wanting past....just pull over into the slower lane whenever the next opportunity arises....however if you are bullied into it like this pr1ck....make sure you let him know by tapping on your brakes,hitting your screen wash and then as slowly as possible moving into the slower lane.

It will annoy the ****** outta [email protected]

He was probably in a rush to shut some poor sods business down or rushing to a pen pushing,paper shuffling boardroom meeting..either way when he finally does arrive home I hope he finds his missus in a questionable position with the Gardener or preferably Gardeners.
