Idiots and rain

Is it just me or does everybody see how many idiots the rain brings out on the roads?

After a long dry spell Sydney has finally had a little rain. All of a sudden everybody is driving faster and taking more risks. Is it because they want to get the car in the garage quicker?

Isn't it funny that all the cars that couldn't spin their wheels to save themselves are out sliding around our roads.

I was stuck behind a f#$kstick yesterday in a V8 F150 ute. Every bend he went through he'd put his foot down to get it to spin. I'm not talking one or two corners. He did it at every opportunity for many kilometers.

I'm sure he though he was impressive, I and everybody else stuck with him just thought he was a wanker. It pisses me off that he risked everybody else on the road so he could stroke his ego.

Not long after I finally got away from him. I came across another idiot in a BA Pursuit ute hassling some poor bloke in his VT SS Commodore. The Holden didn't want to play, like everybody else he probably just wanted to get out of the rain safely.

Funny how the ute backed right off when I got beside him. He suddenly didn't want play any more and slowed right up. Both the Commodore and I could continue our trip without putting up with an idiot in the wet.

Re: Idiots and rain

funny you mention that, it rained yesterday in Brisbane for the first time in ages, waiting to leave the servo the car in front of me, (some Blueprint BA ute) thought it'd be kool to boot it out onto the main road.. Well surprise suprise the d8ckhead fishtailed right into and old Fairmont cruising along in the middle lane.. Mashed his RH tail light, also ripped the bar down and would of scrapped the crapper out of the side of the tray...

Sorry if your a FF member but that was a halfwitt thing to try...

Respect the wet.....

Hmmm goes to show, it doesn't matter what badge is on the car. I can't say I've seen many incidents like that down here in Melbourne.

Re: Idiots and rain

Yeap, I was out on a recce run on Friday night, jeezus there are some lane sharing nutcases! Southern Cross Drive is THREE lanes across not two and a bit leftover, crikey!

Or that SUV who thought he could own the road, by speeding and overtaking everyone hero style from what I could gather in the rear view mirrors. He got 0wned! when he got caught behind the dark mobile as he couldn't quite get in front off the lights and had to merge in behind several times on a two lane road with cars parked on in the left lane. Yes matey, the speed of dark is what he was going to be driving at for some time!

Re: Idiots and rain

i've seen lots of idiots in the rain
some even try me (i'm on my l's)

1 scenario, i'm in the right lane his in the left in a wrx, lane merge in 100meters
lights go green i take it easy, he floors it spins his wheels and that wheel spin keeps him in the same spot. He catches up to me and goes over double lines to get infront of me and merely misses oncoming traffic by jumping into the other sides emergency lane and jumps in front of me like a hero and just floors it to about 160 on a 70 road about 2km's down this coppa jumps out in front of us and speeds off about 2km's again there he is with the wrx on the side of the road :D the f**kwit got what he deserved
i hate these di*ks in the wet
