    Default OAP Dangerous Drivers!!!!

    I am sure we have all seen and read the storys of OAP's driving up the wrong side of motorways and driving at stupid slow speeds.

    Well today me and the misus decided to head to speke shopping complex and went via the liverpool front instead of the M57, anyway about three miles away the road turns to a twin lane 40mph carriageway, as its a built up area I pressed cruise at 40mph.

    I was in the second lane when from around the corner there is a red nissan micra heading straight towards me. Slammed the breaks on when theres a big screach of tyres so looks in the mirror and a merc's swerving towards the back of us.

    I stops the car and this micra keeps driving towards me so I gets out and tells the guy this is one way you need to do a u turn.

    At this stage he is causing total chaos.

    The guy must have been at least 90 and said ok.

    Gets back in my car and he sits there looking at me and starts driving at me again so I move out the way and as my windows level with his i shouted this is one way you need to do a u turn.

    What did the guy do? keep driving into head on traffic

    Some people just don't know when it's time to hang up their keys

    Problem with them is that they are never involved in an accident......they just cause them

    not today mushy, but i'm a courier driver in liverpool and was delivering one day around the the toxteth / aigburth /gartson area and had a similar incident with said coffin dodger.
    he was trundling toward me in the speke direction od aigburth rd. and couldn't see me heading straight at him in a 7.5 tonne truck doing 40!!! (despite me always driving with dipped beams on too )
    i ended up swerving around him....nearly ended up going over the grass verge onto the liverpool bound side just near the toby carvery.....that was about 6months ago....

    Has anyone seen that episode of South Park about the OAP drivers, this has just reminded me of that. This is really scary that he seems to be doing it fairly often!!

    You should really have taken his number and reported him, normally I wouldn't advocate this course of action, but if you did and he was removed from the roads you may save someone a funeral in future.
