I see some pretty fecking stupid driving on my regular journeys to and from home each Sunday and Friday, but today this a$$hole in a white Escort van took the biscuit !! :mad:

Imagine yourself on a dry, wide road with excellent visibility and an Ambulance approaching in the opposite direction with 'blues and twos' going !!

You'd slow and move to the nearside of the road wouldn't you ?? Yes I thought so !!

Well not this a$$hole... he started to indicate to turn right and then actually did turn right, straight in front of the Ambulance !! :eek: :eek: :mad: :mad: :rant: :rant:

The poor lass driving had to slam on the brakes and swerve to her right - and consequently at me - to avoid this utter, utter tw4t !! :mad:

I resisted the urge to stop and 'inform him of the error of his ways' as I probably wouldn't be sitting here now typing this... I be in jail for GBH !! :mad: :rant:

Rant over :rolleyes:

I see this ALL the time, people just dont seem to be aware of whats happening around them
One guy turned right at traffic lights when we were all stopped, although our lights were green. he came up the outside of all of us and turned right across the path of the ambulance which was turning right out of the road he turned into. There must have been inches in it :(

someone did this today while i was leaving B&Q in Darlo, ambulance coming up the road with its lights and sh*t going, everyone pulled over to let ambulance pass, car in front was wanting to turn right so ambulance had to wait behind car while it waited for traffic on other side of the road to stop so it could turn right...muppet:mad: :mad:

I use to be a white man van..........and loved it! Everyone use to move out the way it was ace..............although i do remember on the A46, i had to go right up behing this guy then overtake, not like in a car when you can overtake from a longer distance...........any way this ****ING ****** decided to take the next right turn.................man i **** myself, fair play i was up his ass...............but indicate at least 30secs before you need to turn, i would have been more then happy to hold back!

Mind you even with the 166, it was definatly king of the road when it was on their! People use to be like..................wtf in that, Audi TT drivers mainly! Now im back in the broken festa and everyone takes advantage of me! ******s!

But you should have stopped that driver! What a dick head!!!!!!!

Reminds me of one driver I read about who was "in collision" (pulled out in front of) a Fire engine. We haven't got a chance, if these morons can't even spot a flourescent orange truck, 12 feet high, with a dozen lights and bells on it!

:rolleyes: Two lads in Scotland died recently in a railway level crossing incident......the train already being on the crossing,they drove at full pelt into the side of it with rather predictable consequences!

:confused: Somewhat bizzarely the BBC then rescheduled a pre-filmed article on Top Gear showing exactly what happens when road and rail vehicles try to mix on crossings..........it will now be shown later in the series apparently.


:( Some people are beyond help........

A few years ago some dick in a white van decided to turn across a dual carriageway infront of me - in the snow - I still don't know how I missed him :mad:

The Telegraph Motoring supplement did a piece recently about how much fuel is burned by WVM (white van Moron) recenty.
It was truly alarming. Their driving style (!) is completely amoral - holding gears, over-revving, parking on tickover for ages etc.
Compulsory re-training for all of em I say.
