Driving

As I get older, I find myself getting angrier and angrier at drivers.

I have always found other driver annoyed one of my pet hates is people not signaling on roundabouts, but recently those people who insist on stopping in a white box with a great big sign saying no stopping.

Or those people who park outside my house with no permit and don’t get a damn ticket.

Ohhh how about those people who use child and parent spaces without a bloody child.

I feel much better.

Anything bug you?

    In the past, I’ve often been hit by a car while driving or walking. I also had right of way. They just aren’t patient enough and try to hurry you up. Often they also continue driving after I’m at the ground (even though that’s a crime). Luckily, I never had to go to the hospital, but still.
    Especially when you walk on crunches or are in a wheelchair, people just won’t let you pass, even though you’re on a pedestrian crossing.

    Most people in New Jersey don’t use their blinkers. So dangerous and inconsiderate.

    It does you good to have a little rant now and then – and all those things you mentionedare woth ranting about. My husband is partially disabled, and had special parking badges and so on. As you can imagine, the one thing that really annoys us is finding all the ‘disabled’ bays taken, some by people with no badges at all.

    • The disabled bays are a whole new rant in a sense, to me the parent child bays should be at the back of the car parks, for me it was never about being closer to the front it is always about the space of being able to get the child out. Even now with my son, I have to tell him not to open the door as he flings it right open. And then those parent and child spaces could be used for the disabled. In my local supermarket they have 3 disabled and 4 parent child. So then the blue badge holders use the parent and child bays and get huffed at by parents, who haven’t figured that they are disabled with no where to park.

      When I huff at people using the parent bays, I make sure they are not a blue badge holder first

        Really? I didn’t realise that disabled people did that. I agree, its very wrong. My husband just parks elsewhere, as long as he can open his door wide enough. Perhaps it would be an idea to have the parent and child ones further away, if disabled people are using them. Our rant is that people who don’t need disabled bays should use them just to be close to the shop door. All in all, people can be very selfish.

      • I am never sure how blue badges work and where you can and can’t park. I have seen blue badge holders park on double yellows, in permit holder bays, (I live opposite a hospital, so its busy round here for parking)

        Parking on double yellow lines is allowed, but it can’t be in places that could be dangerous to other traffic. It’s a question of being sensible about it, as far as I can see. I don’t think disabled drivers can park in permit holder bays. I assume you mean residents only? Nick would never do that, anyway. I can see how you have problems opposite a hospital, though. Where are the traffic wardens?

      • They are around but for example, today when I went to walk the dog, I had a car parked in the permit holders only bay without a permit. A car parked in the disabled area with no blue badge on display and a car parked up on the pavement blocking it. Its time like these I wish I had a traffic warden number on speed dial
