Quote from: TP 3000 on January 19, 2009, 03:49:04 PMBut as I am like 2m long I always get in front.
Quotebut the DICKHEAD in the middle lane decided to keep going, resulting in him almost being T-Boned by a firetruck doing at least 50 km/h
QuoteThis meant that the driver in the wrong almost ended up over the cliff

Quote from: TP 3000 on May 28, 2009, 10:38:14 PMAgain on Wednesday as we are coming in on a 315 south, a Black Station Wagon with QLD number plates cuts the bus off as it heads into the bus only section of the Woden Interchange entrance road. The bus driver "alerts" the car as to what he has done, but the car driver slams on the brakes (still in front of the bus) & abuses the bus driver.
Quote from: TP 3000 on June 17, 2009, 11:02:37 AMWhile on the buses quite late at night, I've noticed quite a few cars with either 1 headlight/tailight working or some real so & so's who have no headlight/tailight working. Or those that can't see the white stuff in front of them.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on May 21, 2009, 05:38:16 PMhad one moron this afternoon sitting under the speed limit (80) in the right lane of Adelaide Avenue. I sat behind them expecting they would move over, as the road rules state that where the road is 80km/h or over you are to keep left unless overtaking.
QuoteKeeping to the left on a multi-lane roadThis rule applies on a multi-lane road where:• the speed-limit is over 80 km/h; or• a keep left unless overtaking sign applies.
Quote from: Mini Mat on July 17, 2009, 12:50:03 AMWhen on 361 today on the 319 just near Calvary Hospital on Belconnen Way some stupid lady in a falcon pulled in front of the bus to get in the lane to turn narrowly missing the bus only because the driver of the bus noticed and ran up onto the median strip a tad. The car driver just seemed unaware of the huge green bus!!The loud horn on 361 was used
Quote from: Sir Pompously on August 15, 2009, 03:50:20 PMI mean, what stupid people knowingly go down a one way road, and continue down it as cars are coming in the opposing direction?
Quote from: Martin on August 16, 2009, 01:31:54 PMThe answer: Toyota drivers!
Quote from: belcodriver on March 21, 2010, 07:48:02 AMThe courteous thing to do would be to go straight through the lights and then take the first left.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on May 05, 2010, 05:32:50 PMThe car was parked across your lane? The main thing is that you weren't injured. Although I wonder just how fast the 4WD (in what is a roadwork zone) was going if your car suffered major damage.
Quote from: p_stampy on June 01, 2010, 06:23:55 AMwas it a white 01 camry? my parents sold theirs last year, and i spotto'd it a few months ago going up barry drive in the dark with no lights on.
Quote from: Irisbus Rider on June 15, 2010, 12:41:07 PMI had an infuriating few seconds of driving on my way home earlier;At approximately 11:55am, I was travelling in the left lane, westbound down Ginninderra Drive, between Kingsford Smith Dr and Tillyard Dr, travelling at approx 80-85km/h. To my right, a tipper truck carrying dirt, driven by a young fella trundles past me in the right lane a few km/h faster than myself. When he is barely 1m infront of my vehicle in the right lane, he abruptly merges into the lane I was travelling in, with a single flash of the indicator (which was only activated when he was already in my lane).That's not the worst of it, as soon as he merged into the lane I was in, my vehicle, with barely a few metres to spare between myself and the tipper truck, begins to get pelted with small missiles, in the form of dirt, and small rocks, as he was carrying a load of dirt in his tipper, which was not covered.His combined actions caused me to slow dramatically, which posed a hazard to vehicles travelling behind me.I'm usually understanding of drivers who lack a certain ability, but this driver was just a fair dinkum wanker, the typical young and aggresive driver, with little no no knowledge of how to handle a heavy vehicle, and a complete disregard for all other vehicles on the road. His display of reckless driving (and the uncovered load) deserves to be reported (I just don't know where to report him to! If anyone knows, drop me a line).And, just to make it clear, myself and the other driver were not involved in a previous altercation on the road, which may justify his actions towards me (even still, that type of behaviour is not appropriate).Simply put, he is just an unsafe, and erratic driver who poses a risk to not only himself, but others on the road.
Quote from: Metrobus on February 13, 2011, 06:59:44 PMWho would have though, a Camry doing something stupid? I never would have seen that coming.
Quote from: Irisbus Rider on February 14, 2011, 12:25:16 AMFor the record, it's a Vienta. Trust me, it makes a world of difference.
Quote from: split on February 23, 2014, 07:27:44 PMSo if I am riding a bicycle on the footpath, cars exiting side streets (without traffic lights) and driveways should give way to me?
Quote from: The Love Guru on February 24, 2014, 06:28:10 AMCyclists are required to dismount at all intersections if they are using the footpath and want the same rights as pedestrians.
Quote from: The Love Guru on February 24, 2014, 09:16:56 AMI was talking in reference to the enforcement of right of way at an intersection. As stated above cyclist must not ride across a road or part there of, to enforce the right of way they must dismount and walk across the road.
Quote from: split on February 25, 2014, 12:37:35 PMAs stated in the links below, anyone can legally ride on the footpath in the ACT. This is why I ask if the same principles apply to cyclists as pedestrians when using footpaths.
Quote from: split on February 25, 2014, 09:05:56 AMOK, let me give an example:I'm riding along the footpath on Soward Way alongside Homeworld between Anketell Street and Scollay Street. As I cross the enterance/exit to the Homeworld carpark, do cars entering or exiting the carpark have to give way to me?
