So, are you a good driver?

  packettracer 14:50 28 Jul 2006

I know i have a few bad driving habits, some i should not have at all!
I can drive all vehicles on the road including HGV(LGV)PCV & Tanks. And have over the years done various advanced driving courses in all types of vehicles.

But these days i get behind the wheel and turn from a pleasent person to an angry motorist, do others get like this?

Oh boy...this thread is due for some fun!!

Those reading one of the “bugging you” threads will know I drive a BMW, therefore I am a perfect driver:-)))

Wait for 1000s of responses...

Lucky no one knows where I live...

One funny thing I came across a little while ago on a driving course: The presenter asked who in the audience thought they were better than the average driver. Out of about 20 people, I think it was only 2 who did not put up their hands. Thus around 90% think they are better than average.

And here’s me thinking that 90% are worse than average...


PS I bet you don't get cut up in a tank!

The thing that annoys me more than anything regarding fellow motorists is the clowns who cannot find the lever on the left hand side of the steering column that lets other people know where they are going. It is called an Indicator Stalk. Islands are classics. It seems to me that we have to be a mind reader to determine where and when people are going to leave an island. It really doesn't take long to click the indicator stalk to let the world and his wife know their intentions!

Equally so, I am convinced that a lot of drivers who are driving at dusk have the distinct impression that the power used for powering the lights on their car comes from the National Power Companies and they have to pay for using the car lights!

Surprisingly no, people seem to keep their distance when your in a tank. Even better when the tank commander turns the turret round to face them.

This however has to be done carefully as not to take out road signs, lamposts or telegraph poles! Or passing vehicles!!

I consider myself to be "not perfect", but 2 little bumps in 22 years has to say something.

Oh boy oh boy!!

Get me a tank!

Get me a tank! How my sense of humour is tempted to reply to this.
