To the transit bus (blue and white) who rudely cut me off tonight near Hoxton Park (despite my having the green to go), you may have accelerated away and I didn't catch up with you. But I will not forget - I will follow this up. :| I will be after you.

And the other crazy motorist was the idiot coming out of the club near Hoxton Park Road (Miller) doing the tyre-smoking fish-tail from the exit of the club (blue XR6 Turbo ute). :roll:

That's a bit harsh Mt Concorde, didn't you know that a big right foot is the best compensation for a small gentlemans endowment? Apparently...

I seemed to run into all the mad motorists tonight. :lol: Galah at Prestons Maccas carpark revving up his loud Ford XR6.

The young lady working at Maccas on a short break made the most classic comment on that. 8)

To the BCC bus driver of the 200 bus at around 7am this morning going down Melbourne St across Grey St, Southbank. You couldn't wait and had to block the whole intersection. You are a MORON.

Doesn't involve a bike, but I saw this video. Here I thought it was the Lycra terrorists that were the problem!

I live around the corner and there are way too many fools coming up from Oxley to Darra on that service road, just have to ignore one sign to do it.

The other danger is the roundabout at Douglas St, the clowns go to the right against the roundabout just to save a few seconds from having to slow for the chicane. Had a car go under my tipper a while ago doing it. Loved the coppers expression when he was telling her I failed to give way on the roundabout

From my knowledge of the area more than likely via the service road. Must not have seen the no entry signs.

I use that entry to ipswich mwy whenever I go to Bunnings or am heading east in the car. That'd definitely be a brown pants moment.

That intersection is extremely poorly designed.

Yep that's a really badly designed intersection :shock: I can understand why sometimes people drive the wrong way up there.

I was stopped at traffic lights this orning waiting to turn right. I was the only "vehicle" at the intersection so was waiting a few minutes for the light to change. A car pulled up behind me so I crept forward a bit so he could in turn move up and hopefully trigger the sensors in the road. Light turned green and I started to go. Mr Impatient Tradie In White Commodore Ute decided I was too slow and turned the corner on the wrong side of the road almost having a head on with another vehicle approaching the traffic lights from the street we were turning into. Brain of a grass seed. Actually that's probably an insult to grass seeds. At least he didn't try and run me over I guess.

Yesterday, a Bentley Continental turning out of a Stockland's carpark and roaring down the wrong side of the road to get around the traffic island installed to prevent people turning right out of the car-park exit. :roll: No, bad driving isn't just the sole expertise of utes and BMWs.

The upshot of all this is that Volvo drivers are increasingly getting a less bad rep! :lol:

The pics don't really do it justice. There were two headlights, equally tinted red.

I heard they have been taken over by something else. Audi? No idea why. I haven't had a problem with them.
