"...A long queue of vehicles sitting behind an idiot travelling at 80kph are frustrated, angry and far more likely to make bad overtaking decisions.
Said idiots speed up at passing lanes and slow down again
afterwards, and I see this almost every day. I've seen drivers reach
licence-losing speeds to pass these fools, pull in front them and slow
down, and even force them to almost a stop to let streams of frustrated
drivers go by. Idiots who drive slowly and try and force that on other
drivers are in my mind a large part of the reason for road deaths.
Our police refuse to deal with it. All they see is the rash
overtaking, the excess speeds, the too-close following distances,
because, you know, better too slow than too fast.
This laziness on the part of the police has to stop. They should
be focusing on all aspects of driving, but especially on behaviour that
frustrates other motorists. Refusal to move over on multi-lane roads;
travelling slowly and not allowing others to pass; speeding up at
passing lanes; speeding up when others try to pass; failure to indicate
I was in a line following a slack-jawed moron, doing 65k on the open road a few days ago. Totally oblivious to those stuck behind him. Even worse are the assholes who are playing speed vigilante, deliberatly forcing the traffic to slow to a speed THEY consider safe.
I recommend Bastinado- for a first offence.
Too bloody right. I'm sick of this one-track, one-eyed idiot policing which ignores a multitude of rotten driving habits.
