Swearing in public....some people need swearing at.
That made me laugh. No doubt, they do. Too many instances to name, probably infinite.
At Costco, you'll get a group of ***** standing and chatting right in the middle of the aisle blocking all traffic.

I swear all the time when in the cab the standard of driving on our roads is getting worse.

The latest trend is people not waiting at junctions of side streets they pull into the road then see both of us cannot fit meaning i have to brake hard to avoid hitting them, they then do the thousand yard stare to avoid eye contact as they know they are in the wrong.

A newer trend here is that a driver will change lanes very slowly, almost drift until they have changed lanes and without a blinker. It comes off as really lazy--the driver couldn't be bothered to look over their shoulder or use the blinker. The strategy appears to be to change lanes so gradually that everyone will just be out of the way.
Also, the youngsters have taken to doing donuts en masse at intersections all the time, day or night.

The art of parking or pride in one's own driving seems to have gone, youngsters seem to see cars as runarounds that serve a purpose and no consideration for dry, wet or ice etc
Yank the steering, that's how it works on the computer, when you can get them off the phone and texting Lol
Feck, I am sounding like my Dad, the favourite being, see that lay-by over there son, that used to be the old road.
I must be getting old as I am doing that too, at least I can park though!

Did once see a woman trying to reverse park a fiesta into a space easily big enough for 3 cars, ended up facing the other way on the road and a wheel up the kerb by the time she’d finished. It was opposite a pub so she ended up with an audience! :laugh8:

I couldn't help but diagnose the errors. The driver had the pieces of the correct actions (turning the wheel, lining it up for final approach) but the driver never did them in the correct order or at the correct time.
It appears that the person has read on how to park but has never parked.
Interesting. Or it's a setup or the driver was drunk/drugged.
