Hidden Indication Of An Accident
Right I don’t usually use my blog as a place to moan . But today im going to make a massive exception.
Today as I was driving on my way to work , someone in a BMW ( Now I don’t want anyone to make any assumptions here but they would be correct) decided it was perfectly ok for them to go in the outside lane cutting out all the traffic , and then cut in last minute right in front of me. While I don’t usually care about this kind of thing this time it got to me, I was travelling at 40 mph at this point but the other car must have been doing 60/70mph. The prat in the BMW cut right in front and I had to slam on my brakes as did the car behind me, otherwise I would have hit the back of him/her. Now I’m not sure if they understand the English road laws (Car was from Belgium) but I’m pretty sure you have to leave enough room and not cause another driver to slam on their brakes hoping that they don’t die. The worst thing for me however was the fact that the driver hadn’t indicated (or at least that’s what I originally thought). The driver had in fact indicated but was using those stupid tinted rear lights. They were incidentally tinted so dark that they were literally useless!
Now many of those of you out there will be thinking I’m over exaggerating to because you have them yourself will be able to say I’m being stupid. But I have good eyesight if I didn’t see it imagine someone older, it’s just a recipe to cause accidents (seriously why hasn’t someone invented a car that can’t turn without its indicators on yet!)
I don’t want to have an accident because some inconsiderate person decides in order to make their car look “cool” they need to make it so other road users have no clue what they are doing !
I don’t actually mind people having them tinted as long as they still work for what they are intended, the indicators should still be visible and at night the red reflectors should still work, is it really so much to ask for ?
