Following on from the "Lady" with the makup saga

In my home town I followed this ford fiesta through the town and turned left to climb up a really steep hill that is on a main road.

Halfway up the Fiesta dropped to 10mph, and then stopped in the middle of the road going up this steep embankment forcing me and all the cars following me to stop.

This Lady in the fiesta turned left, and as she did so, I could see all these bits of papers fall from into the car......turned out it looks like she was READING while driving up through the town.

If she was map reading then her passenger could have done that for her.

As I followed her round to the left, she then just stopped again, no indication to say she was pulling into the left.

This kind of thing infuriates me, as does every morning around the ring road around Darlington, People think they can overtake on roundabouts by going down the right hand side lane, and then shooting across the roundabout, pulling in front of me.. This happens every single morning, and once I have had the satisfaction of seeing someone actually get caught by the police doing that but..
I am not claiming to be a good driver myself far from it just annoys me that I try hard to be a good driver and there are people who just blatently don't give a damn

What do BR?s think of this. Or am I just overreacting???

Surely everyone knows that you don't cut across roundabouts, you jst go round them twice if you are either turning left or going straight on???!?!

On the Darlington ring road there a few relativly small (but not Mini) Roundabounts, and as the traffic is heavy ques build up on the left hand side, so you get people who go down onto the right handside (as if to turn right) and then when they get onto the roundabout cut accross to go straight on.

"If she was map reading then her passenger could have done that for her."

A woman reading a map !! ??

I live in a village with a quite narrow road having severe 'calming' humps, cars parked both side, a blind bend and then duck ponds both sides of the road. On Monday afternoon I went through at 20 mph, over the humps and looking under the cars for children, round the bend at 20 mph looking for the ducks which tend to walk across in scores. Then, I was jolted by an angry toot from an Audi driver behind me, wanting me to go faster. I was unusually happy that day, and didn't even think evil of him.

I once got tooted at in a Devon lane while on my bike for not squeezing into a hedge for an Audi driver and instead riding on to the nearest passing space.

He ended up sitting behind me for the next 2 miles as I cheerfully wobbled my way along in the lowest gear I could find. He got progressively more irate, and I was hoping he'd follow me down the drive into the yard where I was going to let rip from the safely of the house, but sadly he floored it and roared off.

Darlinton Ring road is a nightmare on a morning, at the big roundabout where you turn right to Teeside Airport...always jammed with traffic all the way round to the football club sometimes (anyone been down it will know what I mean) ....but of course it doesnt effect the councilers so they wont do owt about it.....AND its chevorons all the way down the ring road... the amount of BMW's that overtake is unbleivable
