The more time I spend driving, the more I wonder why people find it so hard!
I would like to put it down to one type of person but its not….. the bulk of the driving population is… BAD AT IT!
When did the care factor for the people around us vanish? Why do people care so much about getting one car space in front? Why would people rather risk the lives of themselves and those around them than just accepting that they can not hurtle their car infront to gain 2 meters. The amount of near misses on the roads is scary.
Last night I refused to speed for the angry driver behind me. He was so close to the back of my car I could not see his lights. We were going 90 on the dot, my refusal to speed engraged him, he swerved back and forth behind me, sped up and slowed down taunting me from behind. With my two toddlers in the car there was no way I was going to speed up and risk our lives for this bad driver. In the end he ended up screaming past our car in a turning lane that was not long enough for overtaking. So I subsequently had to slam on my brakes so he didnt hit the front of our car. Im sure if he had, he would not have stopped.
Every day there is someone doing a stupid act just to get somewhere faster. Is the pressure on us that bad that we feel the need to risk everyone elses life? If their mother was in the car in front would they treat her like that?! Or are the people driving like this just not value anyone elses life, nor their own? It baffles me, and scares me to death. Oneday my girls are going to be on these roads, it scares the hell out of me.
Why can’t people just drive, dont you know you will get there in the end, you dont need to potentially murder someone to get there. Calm the hell down on the roads!
