As a member of my family likes to say he’s the “Master of [fill in blank]” – I like to think I’m a decent enough driver. I drive quickly, albeit not as fast as some. I keep my attention on the road and what is going on around me as well. Kind of mastered that skill – driving that is.
But like most of you, I have a problem with some of the people on the road, other drivers but I use the description loosely.
Firstly I wonder why some people buy a car that will easily do the speed limit plus a couple more but insist on driving in front of dragging their feet (not literally) at half the posted limit. Okay I like slow drivers on side streets, but on the main roads, put your foot on the gas!
Secondly what is it with people and turn signals? How many times do you get stuck behind a driver who sits at the light, when it turns green; THEN they put on their left turn signal. What? What? Come on! We both know that mannequin in the front seat knew they were turning left, why bother with a signal at all? The reason you signal in advance is so people know your intentions, if I wanted to know what you wanted to do after I’d ask for a letter.
Whew, got those off my chest! I’m sure I’ve frustrated a few other drivers myself as I know I’m only perfect 99% of the time.
Thanks for reading!
