WHY DO SOME OLD PEOPLE DRIVE .





HAD TO WALK THE DOG AT LUNCH TODAY AND ON THE WAY BACK SOME OLD BLIND GIT DECIDED TO TRY AND RAM ME. WAS ON A DUAL CARIDGE WAY WITH A 40 MPH LIMIT , WAS IN THE RIGHT HAND LANE JUST CHILLING AND A OLD tw*t IN A SKODA WITH MILK BOTTLE BOTTEMS FOR GLASSES STARTS VERING INTO MY LANE SO BLARED HORN AND GOT ON THE BRAKES , HE IS STILL OBLIVIOUS TO ME. WHEN HE SETTLED IN THAT LANE I WIZZED UP THE INSIDE OF HIM AND GOT IN FROUNT, CAME UP TO A ROUNDABOUT AND STOPPED, GOT OUT, HE LOCKED HIS DOORS AND DID UP HIS WINDOW, I THINK IF I HAD SHOUTED AT HIM HE WOULD HAVE HAD A HEART ATTACK. HIS EYES WERE LIKE PISS WHOLES IN THE SNOW WITH THE BIGGEST PAIR OFF GLASSES I HAVE EVER SEEN, HE APPOLIGISED AND SAID HE JUST DIDNT SEE ME, HE SHOULD NT BE DRIVING !!!!! THE CUP ESCAPED UN HURT THANK GOD .
 


lol

It is unfortunate that there are so many bad drivers around, but what can you do? I just try and keep away from other drivers as much as i can!

Hey, while we have our wits about us, we should cut the oul wans a bit of slack. Poor bugger hasnt got that much longer to go and whatever about his poor driving, you were able to avoid an accident.

Thats all of us, all too soon...

some people are just nob heads, i was going on to the m6 at junction 9 and its only a short junction so you have to get your speed up quickly, anyhoo i was stuck behind a omega doing 30 up the slip road and as there were two lanes i overtook him, and as i came up right beside him he indicated and tried to move into my lane! i carried on past him and he starts flashing his lights at me. i join the motorway at 70mph and he is sitting right on my bumper, and cuts someone up in the middle lane to overtake me! good job im a cool headed driver, dosent bother me a great deal, but my bro was going mental, flicking the v,s at him. no wonder he is banned from driving!
 


My point is that next time he isnt looking it could be a lot worse, he is a danger to himself and others, next time it could easily be some one crosing the road getting hit ?????? and he isnt the only one.

I know wht you mean, but maybe the little incident with you was a one-off for the geezer. As pissed off as you may be, statistics are skewed in favour of the old fellas.

He isnt the only one, but hes probably paid his dues over the years. Everybody fecks up now and again. How many young guys have really amde a mess of things on the road?

We all drive like tw*ts at times. Ok maybe they shouldnt be driving. But getting out your car mate bit over the top. Say an old relative like Dad, Grandad had that happen to him you would like to find out who threatened him and have a go.

NOT trying to say that they arent dangerous. But they aint all like that. My Grandad still has has wits about him and my old man. He is nearly 60.

Paul Newman won the his class at the 24 hours of Daytona after his

70th Birthday!

Stig Blomqvist is driving in the Swedish Rally this weekend. Hes pushing 60.

Just as there are a lot of old codgers out there who have lost it or never had it, there are plenty who could teach us all a lesson.

Road rage is not the way forward. If you feel so strongly that the guy is dangerous, and that he seriously didnt know what he did to you, report him to the police. They deal with that sort of thing. Not you.

If he was a really good looking young woman, what would you have done?
 


Your lucky wellard you got a cup. Think of us poor so and sos who dont have any power to speak of (1.0 - 1.4s) we dont even have the option to under/over take a skoda. At least you got to show your anger. We would just have to sit there as the VW spawn drove away.

I got out to have a word with him , not to have a go, was more frustrated than angry, If it was a good looking female i would have still got out but got her number as well. I appreciate that its not all o a p s that have lost it but the ones that have always seem to be on the road when i am. Stig Bloomqvist is currently running 32 nd in swedish rally, GO STIG
 


lets just say there are lots of careless and irresponsible drivers out there... let us show some care n responsibility and make the road a little safer

there wlil always be dickheads that will stick to ur bumper n cut 3 lanes just to get infront of u or somethin stupid like that ...... hey they r just makin danger for themselves ..... wont even be sorry if he got crushed by a truck or somethin

Yep same thing happened to me i got out and had a few polite words with tho bloke and said he had just cut me up totally (was at a set of lights where two lanes turned right he was in right lane me left and he cut across mid bend) he was totally oblivious to what he had done. BUT i have learnt my lesson ALWAYS assume they are gonna pull in on ya MORE SO if they look at bit old in a Talbot or bluebird or something!!!!!

Edit: Oh yeah, the guy had no headlights on either it was dark told him about this aswell and he just sat there looking a bit bemused & never turned em on.

Oh but dont always assume they are nobs once when i was test driving a toyota yaris (SORRY!) i hit the brakes a bti hard and someone nearly went into the back of me and he got out to have a few words with me!!!! however he was a bit close to be honest...those things have brakes that are either STOP or do nothing the pedal has no inbetween well i had just come from driving an old escort hehe

but people do make mistakes...

Hehe cDc I agree with you my mother has a YAris T-Sprt and they are either on or off. After driving my Clio and getting in the Yaris feels like you are going to stand the f**ker on its nose
