Attention Nervous Nellies of Canberra Roads

By angrymotorist1 - 1 March 2012 89

Hello all,

Time for a rant. This time it’s about dangerously nervous drivers on our roads when it’s raining. Why is it that whenever it rains people seem to drop to 10 – 15kmph under the limit in the right hand lane? This has to stop. Any of you numpties reading this – next time it’s raining, stay in bed.

It’s fair enough to back off a little bit and leave a bit of extra stopping distance between you and the car in front, but it does not mean you have to drive dangerously slow (often in the right hand lane) causing ordinarily angry motorists such as myself to become extraordinarily angry!

It’s not covered with ice out there guys, there is no need to panic – just make sure your vehicle is roadworthy, leave a little more distance to allow you to stop if needed and if you ARE one of these nervous nelly numpty drivers and you refuse to do the rest of us a favour and stay home when it rains, at least move the F#CK over to the left lane.

Regards,
Angry Motorist

I really don’t think you should be driving…

Knobs like you are the most dangerous things on the road, wet or dry! Do us all a favour and get the bus.

“why is everyone driving slowly when it’s raining”

You, sir, are a complete f%^cking numpty.

It frightens me that I have to share the roads with someone as stupid as this.

I’d rather be late 10 minutes than have an accident or even be dead.

Anyone that tailgates me or shows aggresive and potentially dangerous driving gets a slow down. There is no need to be aggressive or ‘angry’. Unless you’ve got sirens on your roof, what’s 5 – 10 minutes?

Can’t tell if you’re trolling, or just retarded…

Angrymotorist, it appears you have gotten your pills mixed up this morning,

remember, when you wake up, take your chill pills, not your f$ckwit pills.

I’m guessing that cars going a little bit slower, in the long run, takes a lot less time then a collision.

Have a think about it, if your the only one going at the speed limit, doesn’t that mean that you are in the wrong? It is a limit, not a minimum.

Now I know why they’ve felt the need to put an electronic sign on Adelaide Ave that essentially says “It’s raining, so don’t drive like a tool”.

We should all drive very slowly in the rain. After all, it IS really, really scary.

Better yet, WTF slow down (sit between 5-10 Km/h) to view the crash on the other side of the parkway… 1hr 20m to travel 35Km this morning all because everbody had to stop and gander at the crash on the other side of the road… And back too the stay in the left lane, all too true and been said many times b4.

Yeah, right on.

Driving to the conditions is for pussies.

When it’s raining we should all speed up so we get to our destinations faster.

Wet weather seems to bring out the numpties. Idiots who don’t use their lights despite the early morning gloom or use driving lights with the intensity of 1000 suns; idiots who seem to aim for every patch of water on the road; idiots who weave in and out of traffic just to gain a few metres in crawling traffic.

Some twat honked me this morning because I let another car turn from a side street into a line of traffic that had moved about 10 metres in a minute.

I don’t see a problem.

Maybe you should stay in bed if you’re getting angry about this.

Quote from Road Ready driving tips for anyone who may have forgotten this section when they were going for their licence:

“Driving on a wet road is very different to driving in dry conditions. You need to remember to drive slower! Visibility can be a real problem in the wet. Reflections in the water on the road and wet windows can make it very difficult for you to see others on the road – cars, trucks, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians – and for them to see you.”
