    What part of this do people have a problem with?
    Today I was at Tyne Dock in Shields (going out of town) and the roundabout before the roadworks was total gridlock because everyone was trying to get in the "right" lane. I got to the roundabout and there was the sign "use both lanes" so I trundled down the inside lane doing my bit to relieve the traffic at the roundabout, however my good deed was thrown back in my face when no bastard would let me in when I got to the cones.
    I managed to squeeze in front of an Insignia and he went crackas blaring his horn and giving me the wanker sign.

    Obviously the SMB resident Reginald Molehusbands will deem me to be in the wrong so let the abuse begin :lol:
    I was in an Audi as well.

  4. Add truckers who block the outside lane think they're doing the public a service causing a 3 mile tailback in the process

  5. It's class driving past all the stationary drivers giving you dagger looks for using merge in turn correctly. Love it me :D

    Only gonks don’t use both lanes then boot off when you slip in having past everyone not moving in the other lane

    Dunno what’s so hard about it and it’s very annoying when it’s gridlocked full of do gooders waiting their turn not realising if everyone just merged in it would flow better

    Nearly got into a fist fight with some utter prick a few years ago on the way to Berwick.

    He blocked the merge lane trying to be a hero and I saw red and continuously blazed me horn behind me. The fat pin head kernt actually got out his car to approach me

    Used to happen on the Felling Bypass roadworks. A bit like people who block the grid at roundabouts and junctions.

    Gonna start a steak thread soon anarl :cool:

    The thing is when he was giving me the wanker sign I wound the window down and was was waving 2 fingers at him shouting "there's 2 fuckin lanes man". I now realise this could have been taken the wrong way as he had no way of hearing me.

    Was there this morning and a car was trying to block the lane but he left enough room for me to squeeze past and he was going mental when I did. If people use both lanes and merge in turn like you are supposed too would be next to no traffic.
    I was in me 18ton truck.

    Same on the road approaching the roundabout at Gosforth Racecourse going East.

    Massive queue in the left hand lane every morning. About 1/5 of the time no fucker will let you in despite them being the cause of the queue because they’re absolute morons who won’t use all the available road space.

    The thing is anyone coming down from Middlefields to that roundabout and wanting to turn right to go into Shields is stuck in a massive queue because of the idiots trying to get into the "right" lane at that point instead of driving down the other lane and merging.

    It’s like the gits who drive the full length of the felling bypass at 35 mph in right hand lane suddenly move over to the left when they see the lane closure sign then moan when ya try to merge in front of them. This is why guns should not be made easy to own here.

    All highlighting how absolutely shit the standard of driving is in this country is every day. Selfish wankers so desperate to be wherver they’re going 5 minutes before they set off, they don’t realise that driving safely, using a bit of road courtesy and generally not being a prize bellend would all contribute to keeping ALl traffic flowing, overall

    A man who cannot merge in turn can never truly be a man
