This i remember well, about 10 years ago now, i was overtaken on a single carriage part of the A51 by a female who i clocked doing her makeup in the sun visor mirror at god knows what speed, i was doing around 60 and her BMW wooshed passed i'd say at 80 or so and i could see her. I suppose to be fair it could have been a bloke but either way they were doing makeup. I just don't remember that part on my lessons...People soon forget mirror signal manoeuvre it becomes manoeuvre might look might signal
Obviously at work, too stupid to ignore the phone and pull up where it’s safe and call whoever’s rung back, the majority of people when told I’m driving would ring off and call back later or wait for a return callI was passed by a car on the A50 Darby bypass. The driver had her phone in one hand, the other was turning the pages of a folder which was on the passenger seat. She was obviously looking for something or other in the folder. I could see as I was high up in the truck cab. Her car was weaving from side to side across the dual carriageway. She looked rather flustered when I blow my horn at her.
It’s our company policy to apologise and callback later if we find someone behind the wheel, regardless of whether they’re hands free.Obviously at work, too stupid to ignore the phone and pull up where it’s safe and call whoever’s rung back, the majority of people when told I’m driving would ring off and call back later or wait for a return call
The newer work phones won't allow calls through to the handset if it senses that you are moving. Bit of a pain in the ass when you are on a train but fair enough I suppose.It’s our company policy to apologise and callback later if we find someone behind the wheel, regardless of whether they’re hands free.
Signal, manoeuvre, dont look properly if at all is the norm.People soon forget mirror signal manoeuvre it becomes manoeuvre might look might signal
Pedestrians. I have a traffic light controlled junction on my commute with a left turn where it is safer to signal left to warn unwary foot traffic of my intentions.Where else can they go in a left turn only lane? Who is going to benefit?
I witnessed a nice one last week, person in the left turn lane turned right and the guy in the turn right lane turned left... they were screaming at each other so both fine. made me roll me eyes a little.I mean, next time youre in "left turn only" lane look at the idiots Indictating left - why? Where else can they go in a left turn only lane? Who is going to benefit? What were they thinking? Indeed, were they thinking...? A complete lack of observation and thought, full on autopilot syndrome.
Exactly, it's a choice. We have all heard the bum who wants everyone to hear them but unfortunately not everyone can pause their working day just because they are travelling.Sometimes I enjoy the peace of the quiet coach, but then I also miss eavesdropping on occasional fantastic conversations.
