    Part of *my road is blocked off due to some plank parking directly opposite another car on the other side of the road.
    Both of these cars owners live there so i presume its either some game to piss each other off or quite simply like a lot around here , think they actually own the road outside the property.

    although it is funny to watch ;)



    * ( for the anally retentive out there , its not actually MY road ;) )

    Little thread dredge here,
    Went Lidl earlier, on the way home was passed by a black Merc reg no - KW 59 OMF. I'm sure the bloke driving thought he was Lewis Hamilton. Put his toe down, weaving in and out of the traffic all the way thru Greyfriars/Foregate st and ended up going round Tenterbanks, where he and I parted company. There was no use putting his toe down tho, He had stop at all the red lights, due to the cars in front of him.
    Was seriously hoping the Police car 3 behind us would clock him and pull the wankstain over. No such luck.

    There's something about people with a sense of achievement for beating you to the next red light! :master:

    Haven't seen it? I left Lidl just after 14.50.
    Only went home drop the ice cream off and pick up a plant for my sister. Or i'd have missed him.

    I've kept my P plates on specifically because it amuses me to watch such wankstains desperately try to overtake me before having to invariably stop behind the same vehicle I was following. Its hysterical, it's like they can't possibly drive behind a P plate because it affects their masculinity (yes it's always boys, usually in cheaper end BMWs and 15 year old audis). I also have a habit of slowing down in direct proportion to how close one of the dickheads tries driving to my rear end, only within safe levels obviously but it's weird they think it's intimidating enough to make me drive faster than the speed limit? I'm in no rush, I've had no job to go to in half a year!

    I thought getting a car would see road users treat me me better than a motorbike, it seems that whilst the majority do there is a certain class of driver that is just a tool no matter what.

    I've long held a theory about German built cars. There is a device built into the headliner above the drivers seat. When the car starts moving this device lowers a small boring tube down onto the driver's head, and drills through the skull to suck out all traces of brain matter, (assuming there was any there to start with.) :P

    I could go on all day about masculinity of Audi, Merc and BMW drivers. Don’t know if you’re familiar with the Nissan Leaf’s appearance but it’s absolutely the kind of car they’d hate to sit behind.

    It also outruns them at every standing start when the light turns green and it’s incredibly therapeutic.

    I would just like to thank the arsewipe that drives this Nissan Qashqai for their considerate parking next to my car at Holmcroft shops today.

    It was nigh on impossible for me to get into my car thanks to the way you abandoned your car whilst leaving plenty of space on your own side to get out.

    As I am a blue badge holder it was impossible to get into my car on the driver’s side and extremely difficult to get into my car via the passenger side so I waited for 10 minutes thinking that you would only be a while. I checked in the bookies, the hairdressers and the launderette but you weren’t there. After waiting another 5 minutes I assumed that you weren’t in the Coop either.

    As a result I had to get into my car from the passenger side with great difficulty and pain, thanks again you tosser!!!

    They are lucky they didn't end up with a nice dink in their passenger door.

    I have it on good authority that the best way to find out who owns a vehicle is to kick it til the alarm goes off.

    I did try knocking it a bit when I tried to open the driver's door but couldn't set the alarm off.

    Saturday lunchtime we saw an Uber Eats delivery biker drive through the end of Salt Avenue through the pedestrian ramp and onto the crossings estate...

    From tomorrow, a trial of rentable e-scooters begins in Stafford and Newcastle-u-Lyme. So expect some pretty bad driving on the pavements in the morning!! Watch out!!
