Silly driving mistakes!Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

ahem.. sorry

I made a rather silly error navigating on a car rally one night trying to go through a ford that was flooded after a week of rain .. we ( OK OK .. I ) didnt collect a route amendment that was supposed to tell us to avoid the said ford .

We should have realised as we nosed gingerly into the crossing and the water came over the bonnet and the car tried to float downstream ...... My driver got out and eventually phoned his mate with a 4 x 4
" I think we have flooded the carburettor ... "

Fair play to those who have admitted being middle lane oggers .... I daresay that you wont mind me waving enthusiastically to you as I pass !!

Have you every done anything really silly in your driving career?

As the get away driver during a bank raid I once left one of my gang behind at the scene
and didn't realise my silly mistake until we had got back to our hideout that he was missing.
He wasn't best amused at having to pay 1.20 to get the bus back either as he'd forgotten his freedom pass.

redee2tryagain - most people wont have a problem with people not moving over to lane 1 in busy traffic as you describe.

Its the complete f*cking morons who just sit in the middle lane for no good reason when lane 1 is almost empty that p*ss people off.

If people use the motorway lanes in accordance with the highway code then there would be no major issues. In fact if most drivers made the effort to follow the highway code as much as possible then there would be lots less problems than we have now!!! Sadly most of the inconsiderate drivers you meet fully know the highway code but choose to ignore it or convieniently ditched it after passing thier test. its all about mental attitude and funnily enough the general selfish mental attitude that prevails in majority of society today stretches into driving too.
