    Default State of Driving in N.Ireland

    God its got dire in recent years! was driving home last night left a two car gap between myself and a van in front, and some twerp in a daihatsu washing machine flew up the OT lane into a merge and then braked in the middle of the road and blamed me for not letting him in.. sorry but i was maintaining a sensible gap which 2 Vectras couldve fitted into and maintaining the speed limit! ugh.. People are being taught to pass, not to drive and the police are more focused on their new speed gun vans!

    I think on average i atleast 1 bit of awful driving a day only because i do about 1600 miles a week!

    Rant over!

    hi gazz used to do a lot of miles myself over here, the driving has deffo got worse in n.i. same situation as you was on the inside lane with the merge lane just finished nothing behind me and this clown comes racing up the outside lane after the merge had come down to one lane, and tried to force himself into a gap that didn,t exist, it was still clear behind me so he was just trying to intimidate me, needless to say he didn,t get in i gestured there was plenty of room behind me

    It's not just NI boys... Just this morning on the way to work I had some boy racer in his corsa overtake me and the artic in front of me on the wrong side of the road while going round a blind left hand bend... there was no way he could possibly have seen anything before or during the manoeuvre until it was too late... I deliberately slowed right down in case he hit something and took me with him... he was lucky this time... I wish I had my camera fitted, I would have loved to have posted that clip up.

    Farley i share your pain, i regularly drive up the M2 towards AAH, the amount of people who A. cant use a 3 lane motorway and B. sit in the OT lane at 60mph!

    @Grants, yeah! 1500/1600 is about maximum for me at the minute because of the Job, its going down, last week i only did 900! hopefully itll be average about 500 again in a month or so!

    Same all overim afraid. Some woman did the same to me today. Coming over Forth Road bridge and i'm taking the first slip road, about 2 or 3 car lengths in front of me and nothing at all behind me. She just pushes in, on the brakes. Sometime I wonder how some people got their licence in the first place.
