Why do some people who drive think that their fucking indicator is connected to my brakes?

    Im sorry but they arent. Im on the main carriageway. You are joining from a connecting road. You adjust your speed to safely join the flow of traffic. You dont make me brake like a fucking loon as i had no space to go to because you think you have some god given right to just do as you fucking please without a care in the world & fuck anyone in your trail.

    I have a lot to say on current driving standards.

    If you're driving in a lane that has another lane joining it, you also bear responsibility for checking to see if anyone is coming into your lane and adjusting your speed to accommodate them as well. You're in a more privileged position, as you have a much better view coming up it and are up to speed, the person joining is in a riskier position.

    Notwithstanding that people do drive like dicks.

    Don’t be stupid. Audis don’t have indicators . At least, I’ve never seen one.

    You're apparently supposed to give way to those joining the carriageway by suddenly moving to the lane on your right, causing the driver of the car that was overtaking you to shit bricks.

    Merging is one of the scariest parts of learning to drive

    imo

    What they ought to do is put bloody great signs up well before the junctions so that you have plenty of warning and time to move over.

    :hmm:

    I could be very wrong though.. :D

    I would also like a special mention for anyone driving down a sliproad at 20mph when I am behind them.

    You guys rock. :thumbs:

    I really love these folk, joining a 70mph carriageway, so they spool it up to 45.

    Yep. I'm always either waiting for half an hour or else i go into too small a gap in the cars and my driving teacher tells me I'm 'bullying' people.

    Almost as good as those who stop on a slip road then "turn into" the traffic, rather than adjust their speed and merge safely.
    (I nearly went up the a%^& of one doing the former method yesterday afternoon; joining the M6 from Tebay Services, which have ginormous sliproads)

    Of course legally the person already on the motorway has priority, but the hallmarks of GOOD driving is anticipating what other drivers will do so you don't get taken by surprise or have to brake hard. That often means accommodating them where it's safe to, and expecting people on a slip road, who may not be completely up to speed or have the clearest view of the road behind, and who want to pull out onto the motorway, to pull out onto the motorway.

    There is absolutely nothing about Tebay services that is not to like. Fact.

    Tebay Services are definitely the best - speaking as someone who still does quite a lot of driving in the UK, some of which has to be motorways.
