End of last year and the beginning of this one I drove to near York and back twice. Motorway driving was very reasonable with no strange manoeuvres that can cause more stress than usual. Today, however, travelling to Liverpool and in the City itself I was totally amazed at the inconsiderate drivers who 'undertake', swerve to another lane and force you to stop as they push you to the kerb at traffic lights. OK they are locals and know the area but I was a stranger and surely when the driver at the back sees the TomTom 'glow' on my windscreen then they must realise that the driver in front will be a tad slower so should they not make a bit more of an allowance? Not on your Nellie. Don't get me wrong, I was keeping up with the traffic speed but just having a Sat-Nav must irk these very stupid drivers for some reason. Bloody selfishness as simple as that. As for motorbikes, it's a wonder any are alive. Sorry for the rant. That's the penalty for not living in the rat race I suppose.
If they are concentrating on you hard enough to be able to see the glow of your Sat Nav then they are not spending enough time on the road or other users. How would they know the glow was from a Sat Nav and not a DVD player or something else.
When we were last there we used to derive much entertainment watching drivers getting into a kerbside space simply by shunting any other parked cars backwards and forwards until the space was big enough!
That's the point really, they don't concentrate on other road users, they just push in any old how. To be fair, though, it was 'rush' hour. I suppose my driving habits would change if I lived in a City. anskyber, everyone fine, daughter got the thumbs up yesterday.
Not yet, everytime I'm in an Italian hotel room in a city centre, the most obvious indication of being in Italy is the continual peep, peeep, peeep, peeeeep of car and scooter horns that goes on until about 4 am!
