    Thatís really bad, the so-called cheater had to fend off the cyclist who crossed her path as she was about to overtake. She could have been killed. I think it is wrong to show videos of women being abused, Jon. Itís not funny.

    no 38. I guess that happened in a middle European block country where almost anything goes.............except pushing a close contender. sometimes I feel like pushing a car doing 45 in an 80 zone ,,,,,but don't. the really annoying thing is when the driver gets to a 60 they invariably get up to 65-70.

    As the old saying goes" the REACTION is usually worse than the ACTION".

    For me it's on-ramps, and visible most mornings.
    Effectively, all vehicles on the road these days have means to accelerate sharply; and merge smoothly. Despite this, a large percentage of drivers fail to impart this momentum, disrupting traffic flow in progress.
    However a short distance later, the same operators exceed traffic flow/ speed limit. It's as if their demeanor changes.
    I scowl, chastising them silently with "wake up at HOME; not the on-ramp".
    It's apparent; they are immune to my incredible psychic tendencies.

    no 44, I agree and almost verhemetly so, as I see most accidents resultantly in terrible delays as folk here dont seem to get the merging idea, A merging car has to get up to speed to merge . there is one north of Brissie where there is a 1 K merging lane to get from 60 to 100 and people regularly cross into lanes only 300 metres in and are only doing half of the speed of the highway.
