This week, I don't know what it is, but I have come across men in white vans (all different men with different vans) who find it perfectly acceptable sitting at the wheel, smoking massive spliffs.

This reminded me of my mothers Iranian boyfriend, who loved driving about whilst drinking glasses of wine.

Dickheads obviously.

What is the most ridiculous thing you've seen whilst out riding.

Today I thought I saw a bloke holding a shell to his ear trying to listen to the sea while he was driving. I'm fairly sure it was just another wanker on his phone though.

Mother reading to her child, whilst moving along at 20-30mph, in heavy rush hour traffic.

Also, people reversing up the entry ramp to the a406, due to heavy traffic, and a desire not to be caught in it.

Not whilst riding, but whilst driving down the M23 last night. An ambulance, obviously in a hurry, with blues and twos going doing about 80mph (i was keeping pace at a reasonable distance) in the middle lane was overtaken by a matt black, 61 plate Audi A7 driven by a complete knob!

30 seconds later we hit the roadworks and the tail end of the traffic jam meaning that the amnulance then had to try to get back past the knob in the Audi.

Mr A7 Driver, you are a cock!

Red Astra 'van' on the Old Kent Road heading in to town 'drifting' about a little, the usual sign of someone on his phone - the man had his laptop open on his knees.
Someone sent me a postcard picture of the earth. On the back it said, "Wish you were here."

Wow.

I once saw a man with a van, following an ambulance as it sirened through the heavy traffic, leaving about 12inches between themselves.

I followed a lady who had two dogs in her car, one of which was clambering over the dashboard. How on earth she could see where she was going I don't know!

A few years back on a rideout (those were the days) we pulled up at a T junction next to a young lad holding a mug of steaming hot coffee obviously intending to try and turn right with just one hand.


One of our group had a nice quiet educational "word" with him and you could tell from his expression that he could see nothing wrong with his actions????


Mind you when our guy offered to upend his boiling cauldron of nut broiler into his lap, he began to see the possible dangers. :eek
I used to not give a foc, then I discovered Red Bull and now I don't give a flying foc !!!

Heh Heh.

People are twats eh?? Sorry to hear about your YZF125. They are great bikes.

I quite like the story about the dude having a blowjob, Hanger lane can be quite dangerous. I would it if they had to emergency stop, and she bit his cock off. :-D

That'll learn em!!

I haven't seen anything that stupid today. Other than dickheads stuck in traffic on the A406, by Henly's corner blocking me in as I try to filter. Dog in the manger attitudes result in me taking your wing mirrors with me as a trophy . . . . . . (not really. I'm too nice)

During a gale a couple of years ago my late night commute home from work down the M3 was getting scary with branches and temporary road signs getting blown onto the road. I decided to come off a junction early in the hope that the A331 would be safer. After a mile or so I was even more alarmed when a car passed me... somehow managing to squeeze between me and the kerb, missing me by about an inch. A whole lane of dual carriageway available to overtake and the f*ckwit chose to use the occupied one to pass me up the inside.
It's not like he needed to be in that lane anyway, he turned right shortly afterwards... so I could only assume his intentions were to frighten the crap out of me. Mission accomplished, tosser. :2guns

Fucking idiot!! People like that need to be taken out of the gene pool.

I was nearly mown down by a lorry the other day for stopping at a pedestrian crossing to let some school kids cross. Luckily, I managed to accelerate out of the way without anything bad happening. The kids were just standing on the crossing, messing about, with no intention of crossing.

Still though, lorry should've made the effort to slow down.

Slam his truck in reverse and reverse over a mini metro!
Unfortunately, it was me driving the truck!!!!
 
It didn't help when the guy got out of the metro and said "It's a police car"
Well, I thought he did!
Turns out he actually said "It's a LEASE car"

driving to work this morning, big white van pulls out in front of me, and instead of deciding to drive up the road, promptly stops to let a couple of pedestrians cross the road. Managed not to hit it.

Oh yeah, nearly forgot, said big white van also had POLICE written all over it. Fecking wanker.

A couple of weeks ago, driving home, approaching a blind bend.  Cyclist coming towards me emerges around the bend along with the car that has chosen the blind bend to overtake the cyclist.  I was travelling about 45.  I had to stand the car on its nose to come to a complete stop to avoid hitting the car head on!  Thanks you for sticky tyres and ABS

The couple of times I've had cars coming straight towards me on the motorway, one of them on realising their error doing a full swooping slow u-turn across 4 lanes of the M8.  Total chaos.  Old fellas both times.

There should really be a cut off point for elderly drivers.

No Idea. Probably the same way they check if a car is insured/licensed etc etc etc. I'm not against elderly people driving, but there are some elderly people who just REALLY shouldn't drive. I know there are some people who just really shouldn't drive full stop, but they COULD learn the skills they need to get better.

If you have failing eyes, ears, breathing and therefore, horribly slow reactions, then you shouldn't be on the road, unless you can drive to the fullest of your ability. When stepping into a car, you owe it to those around you to be able to control it perfectly.
