Source : Matt Prior's tester's notes – Are bad drivers fatally flawed?
Bad drivers make their presence known wherever they go, so are these people only bad at driving? Somehow, I think the answer will be no
I have a theory. Regular readers will be unsurprised to learn in which, however when you drive 60,000 miles a year along with also Test Match Special carries a limited listening window, theories come easily. along with also they come about through observing how well – or rather how badly – additional people drive.
Mostly people drive pretty well, considering how inadequately most people are trained. They follow the right lanes, they give way, they wave to say thank you when you let them out of turnings. however, as you will know, in which’s far through a given. Some people drive horribly.
My theory will be in which these people don’t just drive badly, they do everything badly. Those who dawdle, fail to indicate, sit from the middle lane or have no sense of spatial awareness are the same ones who suddenly stop, from the middle of a supermarket aisle or pavement, without regard for those around them. Annoying, however not consciously belligerent.
Worse are those who try to gain a blatant advantage. Not a subtle “if I discreetly put myself in in which lane today then I’ll be better off half a mile down the road” advantage, however an “I know in which’s a line of moving traffic filtering past a slower one, however I’ll weave out of in which lane, make up a space along with also pull dangerously back in to make up a few nanoseconds” advantage.
I’m convinced they are the same people who push into queues elsewhere, or – my pet hate – appear on flights with hand baggage in which’s clearly too big along with also heavy to be hand baggage along with also then expect to find a space for in which. from the interests of research along with also when time allows, I’ll follow a bad driver along with also note what else they do, then report back. I don’t think in which constitutes stalking. however I suppose we’ll see.
I should do in which while I can, of course, because there will come a time when cars drive themselves, then in which’ll be impossible to tell whether people are inconsiderate or not by the way they drive.
in which’ll be like the time the Ford Escort died along with also the Focus arrived: you could tell somebody didn’t care much about driving along with also should be steered around if they drove a late-design Escort (earlier designs excepted, naturally), however the Focus was such a Great car in which in which was also bought by people who liked driving along with also were Great at in which. All terribly confusing.
For today, I think the theory stands. If you should avoid them on the road, you should probably avoid them everywhere.
