I know his heart was in the right place, but honestly, that guy isn't exactly much better himself... Filming (using his phone) while driving at night in fog is pretty f*cking ridiculous in its own right.

I came across this video.



The guy recording is following the white SEAT Leon beacause he suspects the driver is drunk. When he crashes, you can see the driver almost about to cry, telling the guy recording "Please don't call the cops" and when the cameraman tells him, he is going to do so, he attempts to start his car and try to leave Hit & Run style.

He got arrested of course

Universal expression for Oh F*ck!....Whoa! means the same everywhere is seems. I don't know whether it is sad or laughable. Laughable that no one was killed or seriously hurt by the idiot in the seat or sad that they would get themselves into that state in the first place. I hope he's learned something and straightened himself out.

People who try to block you in or move into every lane you're moving in deserve a special place in hell. And I'm waiting for the day some dick rides out ass, we have to break and he hits us. He/she's gonna have a very sh*t day.

Why do they do that?

Just about every woman driver in this sorry-ass city gets on my nerves. In an Intersection they pass in flying without looking left or right, they go as slow as a f*cking snail, usually in "large passageways" (eg. Highways) they drive in two lanes instead of just one (they drive ABOVE the lines instead of between them), and if you so dare beep on them so that they can hurry the f*ck up they cry.

 

 

No wonder Saudi Arabia doesn't allow women to drive. yes, I know, not all women drivers are absolutely sh*t, but still. I almost envy them. :angry:

Please check this link first

 

Drive along this road today with two cars ahead. The one in front was crawling about 15 or 20 or so and the car behind looking passed. Now the road in the pic is as you see it (ignoring the fisheye). The questing is what would you do?

 

Do you Overtake over to the other lane and back, do you use the width of the lane you're in or do you hang back and be patient as there are numerous junctions along the road not to mention one a few hundred yards away at the end of the road?

 

P.S the impatient driver was also a disabled driver. Doesn't make any difference, but given that their car had signs and stickers for the consideration of other drivers would you not think they would extend a similar courtasy.

It's hard to tell from just a picture but I'd probably overtake there, the sight lines are long, you can see anything coming up to the junctions, and if they're really doing 20 I'll be past and back in front in about 2-3 seconds from swinging out.

I'd probably keep to the width of my own lane if possible.

Fair point, but I'd disagree. I will admit it is a tricky one, but given that it isn't a dual carraigeway and that the car in front has every right to use the width of the lane and given the speed limit being 30mph  I would see overtaking as being impatient. If the slower car hadn't paid attention and moved to the white line and hit the other car (always a possibility) what would the legality be?

 

In any case I do see your point but personally I'd find such a maneuver very chancey in a built up area.

 

I suppose it is all in how you percieve what is happening. Also the image is a google street view image. You can move it about if you wish.

Ah, didn't realise it was a 30. In that case I'd probably wait until an open stretch further down the road.

However:

If the slower car hadn't paid attention and moved to the white line and hit the other car (always a possibility) what would the legality be?

This could be said about pretty much any road, regardless of speed limit or markings. My view is that if you're concerned a vehicle is going to stray into the space your intending to occupy, don't overtake. But assuming any vehicle is going to do do just means you never end up overtaking anything.

As a general rule, if I think I can pass someone driving under the speed limit in a manner I do not believe will risk any other road users, I'll almost always do it. I'd rather be ahead of the kind of moron who drives half the speed limit (because they're almost universally terrible drivers in other ways too) than stuck behind them in the sphere of their sh*ttiness.

There's a junction in my town that's an Y, and in one of the corners there's a police station. The guy in front of me on a Ford EcoSport ran the red light and was t-boned by a Corolla pretty badly. The Corolla driver got out of his car, broke one of the EcoSport's window, grabbed his bumper, placed it on the back seat and ran. 5 seconds later, 2 cops on bikes went after him.

I'd like to think those cops initially just watched it all unfold with a "Are you seeing this?" look on their face before pursuing.  :lol:

Kind of similar to the look on my face right now. Corolla driver smashes escorts window, rips the corolla's bumper off and put's it into who's back seat?

Looks like a Kamikaze driver decided to steal a car, and drive on the opposite side of the Highway until he crashed. We was arrested and nobody was injured.

I could be crazy, but does the presence of cops bring out the worst in people. I pulled out of a filling station immediately after a cop in a marked car. I followed him up the road with no incident until I turned onto another main road to go home. The cop had turned up the same road (to head to a chippie as it turned out).The police car pulled in just as a car parked two spaces ahead pulls out, straight across two lanes of traffic, narrowly missing an oncoming car only to head the wrong way up a one way street. I'm guessing the cops hadn't noticed as there was no fuss and I would technically have been obstructing their view at the time, but either way It seems cops draw out the crazies.

Painful. Poor passenger getting knocked out as well. It looks as if the driver may have dozed or gotten bored.
