Thread: I can't be the only one noticing this......?

  1. #1

    Angry I can't be the only one noticing this......?

    I have been driving in Vancouver since I was 18.

    In the past couple of years, the drivers in this city has gotten aggressive and impatience.

    They drive like maniacs, cut you off when ever they want, and worst of all just turn with out signaling; drive like they own the road

    It's like drive at your own risk now.

    It’s not just Vancouver, Toronto is even worse.

    Even smaller cities have gotten worse. I've noticed a real increase in incivility in general. Many more people just don't seem to care about playing by the rules of civilization any more.

    I have had people flip me the high beam for driving under the speed limit in the slow right hand lane on a 4 lane hwy.

    I drive like a grandma sue me.

    Itís always been bad and youíre right, itís gotten much worse.

    The likely suspects these days are the Car Share people who donít own the vehicle and drive crazy. One area itís gotten very bad is around the Expo Site and Athletes Village. No signal, just cut you off and have a laugh with the passengers.

    I can't drive. Or won't drive, depending on how you look at it. I mean, I did have my license at one point but no longer. The fear of driving runs in my family. My Grandma and Aunt both did not drive.

    Even yesterday, I was in a friends car and the aggression of other drivers made me feel very uncomfortable. I'd just rather take the bus, let the bus driver deal with it!

    Winnipeg is the same way.

    Zero patience or courtesy on the road and everyone needs to be everywhere right fucking now attitude.

    ......and in my experience it mostly seems to be young women..... or guys in their forties looking at their fifties and trying to prove something.

    Sometimes life will fuck you and you'll just have to change position and enjoy it somehow.

    I would be one of those people that would flip you off. People who drive under the speed limit are equally as dangerous as those who drive way to fast. If you can't at least drive the speed limit, get a bus pass!

    My point exactly people have no patience like the above poster. Probably have a gun ready and loaded if provoked by a granny driver.

    Its a 4 lane hwy past 11pm when I was flipped the high beam. Just pass me there is no traffic whatsoever but people love conflicts out there.

    Everyone know slow lane is for lame ass drivers. I just go around its that easy

    In my neck of the woods, it's usually young and/or petite women giving other drivers grief; driving their husband's/boyfriend's jacked up F350, trying to see over the steering wheel and forgetting to fold out the side-view mirrors.

    You do know the speed limit is supposed to be the maximum speed driven, right? I mean, I speed all the time too, but someone doing the speed limit or slower in the right lane isn't doing anything wrong.

    Now, the jackasses blocking the left lane, they can die in a fire.

    So pass them, and get the fuck out of the way because you are too slow for the guy who wants to pass you.

    Even though there are days I wish I could change some things that happened in the past, thereís a reason the rear view mirror is so small and the windshield is so big, where youíre headed is much more important than what youíve left behind.

    I had not ridden it in a year. My best friend, who I ride with a lot, had a near fatal collision. A fucking idiot in a pickup pulled out right in front of him. My buddy has a traumatic brain injury and is deteriorating slowly but steadily.
    Every time I see him I feel like crying.
    He went from being one of the sharpest business guys in town to not being able to find his way around his own house.
    Meanwhile the POS who hit him got off by saying the sun was in his eyes.

    People drive like idiots now, while cars and bikes are far more powerful and faster than ever. And it is NOT "just a few" spoiling it for everyone, it is almost everyone.

    If the feds came out with a rule banning all vehicle modifications, and put a limit on power, I'd be all for it.

    Funny I had zero accidents since Driver's Ed in 1974 to 2017.
    Then I got rear ended in broad daylight while stopped at a red light by a bimbo driving her mommy's car. Hit me so hard she dented my gas tank! Did she apologise? No. Did she ask if I was okay? No. She gets out with her bitchy attitude and says "I guess you want to see my license". So I take a picture of it and she gets in her car and takes off.
    A month later another young bimbo hits me while I'm parked at Walmart.
    Two different young women driving right into a stopped car...WTF?
