    Thumbs down The roads are unsafe

    On way home from work approaching round about tiaxi in right hand lane taking 2nd exit and im in left hand lane taking same exit... what does taxi do cuts accross me onto my side of the road causing me to brake sharp, beeped horn and indicated out and pulled up along side him guess what he's the one waving hand gestures at me ?????, at that moment if i didn't like my car so much i would have rammed him off the road, firstly it's not the kind of driving i would expect from a proffesional driver and secondly not that kind of attitude, I had barely calmed down when driving along a 2 lane national at the end of the road there is a junction onto the 60 mph road from a road that runs roughly parallel to the road i was on also my road changes to one lane just after the junction, this woman driver just pulls out in front of me, luckily i know to cover the brakes at that part of the road as it happens every other day, but this idiot judges it way wrong and forced my to brake very strong, now iwas temped this time to ram the car off the road,beeped my horn and flashed my lighs as i was braking , you know she wasn't even aware i was there, she didn't even look into her mirror got her number plate, you guys think there is any point in passing it to the police

    The roads are unsafe?
    Try driving on the pavement, that's even worse - full of pedestrians!

    Seriously, I doubt it as she'll simply deny it.

    No offence m8 are you sure driving is for you? This is a few posts now regarding other road users annoying you, maybe you should try public transport for a period. Getting yourself worked up is not the answer. These people are everywhere, as for passing it to the police, I wouldn't waste time - any witnesses? Sorry if it offends as that is not the point.

    You need to start taking it in your stride and letting it go over your head mate I used to get angry and chase people but it just cracks you up.

    Secondly a taxi driver is'nt a proffesional driver Out of all road users its between women in general and taxi drivers who display the most careless/reckless and uncaring driving attitude.

    Pass her index plate to the police.... along with the taxi's plate number. Make the complaints.

    More than likely sod all will come of it... but if you don't, then definitely nothing will. You never know they might just get spoken to.... it might have an effect.

    If like so many now you had camera footage to back it up.... ??

    At least it was a taxi, so if there was a witness with you make a complaint to the local authority
    Otherwise ignore it

    GAZZA4 makes a good point, I would not give these type of things a seccond thaught, top tip,,take the AIM test, it will teach you a lot, like NOT to blow your horn or flash your lights as this only makes things worse, just let the idots get on with it, chill man chill,

    might be right i will try and calm down it's just so annoying that they dont even know what they have done or just plain don't care, if my wee one was in the car her head would have been thrown forwards due to the force of braking.
