Bit of a rant today, I’m afraid.
Just three months after getting my car back after my last encounter with an idiot driver, it felt almost like dÃ©jÃ vu when, on the same stretch of road, it almost happened again!
On my way to work this morning, yet another Dukes of Hazard wannabe came speeding down the outside lane and swerved left in front of me, narrowly missing my car before cutting back out, forcing the guy heâ€™d undercut to slam on his brakes.
As that lane of traffic slowed up to the imminent roundabout, I drew alongside the vehicle and glanced over.
And I guess I shouldnâ€™t have been surprised to see someone with such little regard for their own or anyone elseâ€™s life with a mobile phone clamped to their ear. Priceless.
What makes it worse though is that vehicle in question bore the branding of a very well known parts supplier. Not good pr, I would suggest.
I know of at least one parts distributor that tracks the speed of its vehicle fleet in real time with dangerous driving a firing offence. Sounds good to me.
