Moron in a Transit in the Car Park

Walking back to my car in the uni car park today, a little Fiesta is driving along - at a perfectly sedate car park speed - with a Transit hot on its tail. Fiesta indicates left to park in a space and moves over to the right, as you do, to swing his front end in. As soon as he does this the Transit tries to stick one up the INSIDE - along the left! - of the Fiesta, between it and a row of parked cars, despite the fact he's clearly indicating to park. As the Fiesta turns in on him the Transit slams on his brakes, locks up and skids to a halt, narrowly missing the Fiesta. As he stands there waiting for the Fiesta to park he complains loudly to his mate (with his window open), "Polite of him to indicate wasn't it!" I just had to butt in, with "He was quite clearly indicating, you weren't paying attention!" ******* ignored me and sped off.

And the worst part?? When he skidded to a stop he ended up about a foot away from - and heading straight for - the front of my 156!!

I hate a lot of the transit drivers. Some of them are just filth.

Re: Moron in a Transit in the Car Park

Why do people ignore indicators like that. Similar happened on the way into my road in Cov. Its a tight one so you have to pull over the the right of your lane so you can give yourself enough space to turn in properly.

So I did that, indicated in good time..... and suffered a ford fiesta centimeters away from ramming into my passenger side!!!!! Horn blarring, acting like I was insane. OPEN YOUR ****ING EYES!!!!

Re: Moron in a Transit in the Car Park

Even if the guy didn't indicate - if you're folloing someone along a car park and they start to pull to one side, you've got to be some kind of muppet to try to speed past them without considering what they might be trying to do.

Re: Moron in a Transit in the Car Park

Reminds me of when you see an energency vehicle behind so pull in to the side, and the mindless twonk behind you just overtakes, blocking the entire road.

Or when there's a car parked at the side of the road, and oncoming vehicles, so you pull in to the left slightly and slow down to let them through - numpty behind overtakes you and ends up nose-to-nose with the oncoming car. And you can bet he makes sure it's the other, innocent party who ash to reverse to correct his dumbass mistake.

Indicating or not is irrelevant THINK ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND YOU, YOU COCKEND.

Re: Moron in a Transit in the Car Park

I had the same thing happen to me in a supermarket car park a few months ago I mean, is it so difficult to realise that if people are in a car park that probably means they are going to park

It's yet another reason why I reverse into a space. Therefore noone can get past as I swing round to reverse in.

Re: Moron in a Transit in the Car Park

I was once a white van driver (well blue), when I left I actually felt my IQ rising!

White Van Man runs on MacDonalds, poor coffee and a desire to doss off, (yes I said doss) he has few redeeming features except being useful when you have to move house!

Saw one get jump a red light with a filth car behind yesterday, Filth did nothing! Surprise surprise! Probably too close to shift change to bother!

But then you run foul of the dozy moron who, when he sees you stop just beyond the space, drives into it forward - just as you engage reverse - b^%y t1t. Always a good oportunity to try out new cuss words and raise your blood pressure
