Re: I hate bad drivers!

For those who've mentioned the "sitting with the brake lights on syndrome"

Many years ago I was sat for around 20 mins in stationary traffic going through Henley during the regatta.

Nice sunny day, window down, nothing moving, watching the world go by.

Next thing .. "bang" ... car behind suddenly hits me ... and no .. the traffic hadn't started moving .. everything else still as stationary as it had been.

I get out, the other driver gets out .... it turns out that for the last twenty minutes she's been sitting with the car in gear with the clutch pedal down and holding it on the footbrake.

Then ... what happened ??? .... oh that's simple ... apparently her interior rear view mirror dropped off the windscreen and she took her feet/hands off everything to catch it ...... the car jumped forward and ... bang ...

Currently in GezT's garage:
Laguna II Initiale V6 Sport Tourer...... Toyota MR2 ...... Honda Blackbird CBR1100XX ........ Sunbeam S7.
