Today a new bar has been set, a new record for idiots on the roads in cars with a record four incidents on the way into work.
1. Asian minicab driver in a silver Toyota Avensis tries to execute a right turn across a crossroads into the path of the oncoming traffic. Problem was at that point the oncoming traffic was me so he received a wake up call with a cheery “WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU F’ING DICK?”. Which he heard even over his banging Asian beats.
2. Next set of traffic lights some woman in a Green Skodia Octavia Estate jumps a blatant red light and does the same. I’d spotted this one happening and had actually based through the junction by the time she completed it. This rather annoyed the bloke in the black Audi S3 behind me who gave a good old foghorn blast on his horn, then dropped the clutch and launched off the junction in a fury of squealing tyres, burning rubber and turbo psst.
3. Nissan van stopped at the set of traffic lights with hazards on midway through the Bends of Fury. Sitting there reading the paper whilst blocking a lane as far as I could tell. It did make the other drivers rather furious. Maybe he was doing it on purpose.
4. Woman in a pale blue and ancient Toyota Corolla stopped LOOKING AT A MAP on the slip road off the Mancunian way whilst blocking the whole thing. Sheer genius, clearly she had a death wish as it’s pretty much blind and cars are doing about 40 mph at that point.
