Right, just a bit of a rant about the poor quality of some hull drivers. Today I was almost involved in TWO accidents which would have been no fault of my own. Those local to me will know the areas that ill be refering to.
1. Driving to work this morning heading west down Anlaby Road in Hull, reached the round about where you can go down Boothferry Rd or Anlaby High Road, and i was turning right to head down Anlaby High Road. A couple of cars were in front of me but about 3 car lengths in front. They got round the roundabout, and i approached and could see the que of cars waiting to pull out from boothferry rd. Im now on the round about and half way round when i spot a silver Megane mk1 slowly moving forward, and i spotted that the driver wasnt even watching what she was doing and pulled out in front of me. good thing i covered the brake pedal just incase! She did get some obscene things shouted at her and various hand signals from me.
2. Heading home from work so now going east on Anlaby Road. Heading towards the Walton Street junction no cars in front of me, no cars behind me (this was lucky as you will see) and i spot a few cars turning right onto walton street from the other direction. as im approacing doing 30mph whith my lights on green, this f*****g idiot in a pre-facelift silver lightning vectra estate (dont think it was a member from here, if it was i expect an apology) decides that he cant see my car which is heading towards him at 30 and pulls out right in front of me, spots me and stops half on my side of the road. So i had to slam the anchors on to avoid a huge crash (thank god ive upgraded the front brakes, but if anyone was behind me im 90% sure they would have hit me). I was so in shock at this idiots driving that i didnt have the presence of mind to pass on my thoughts about this mans driving to him unfortunatly.
Its the second one im more annoyed about because it would have been almost head on. The first i kinda knew she was gonna pull out but still dont excuse it.
Thanks for reading my little rant, ill sleep easy now. Although im considering fitting some sort of in car video recorder like those in america.
Thanks again for reading.
