Lament at bad drivers; YourSay.

I WOULD like to relay my 'thanks' to the motorist who overtook me on a traffic island last week and then cut me up as he was going the same way and not turning right.

I'd also like to thank the Post Office van driver who pulled out about 300 yards in front of me even though there was no build up of traffic behind me.

Also, the boy racer who chose to overtake me on a bendy road causing a poor bloke going the other way to turn white.

And the one who shot passed me to overtake, then cut in front of me to take off down the slip road, causing me to brake.

Last but not least, I would like to thank all the cars racing past me on a daily basis as I travelling to work on the Birchfield flyover.

I was led to believe that the speed limit on there was 40mph. Well, that's what I do.

Yet I have never seen any of them picked up.

Do the cameras work or are they there for show? Maybe I am wrong, as the others dash past me at well in excess of 60mph whilst I dawdle along at the proper limit.

I would love to go a little bit faster, especially if I am late for work, but it would be just my luck to get caught.
