Keep left

What “Keep left” sign? Whatdyamean, “Keep Left”? Tram stop? What tram stop? It doesn’t apply to me. I’ll go where I want. (Sorry about the pic quality.)

Stupid places to park #347

I mean, okay, maybe you need the truck to do whatever work you’re doing in the adjacent shop. But why completely block the footpath with it, forcing people onto the street to get around it? How about finding an actual spot on the street? Irritating enough for able-bodied pedestrians like me. Doubly irritating for people […]

Arrogance

1. I’m turning right. You’re turning left. But I got here first and my car is bigger than yours, so I’m going to go first. 2. Sure, I can park here on this corner. Why not? 3. Sure, I can park here. Why not? Pah, pedestrians, school kids? Who cares?

Road smug

I don’t suffer from road rage (not travelling by car in times of heavy traffic when I’m in a hurry helps a lot). If anything, I suffer from road smugness. I don’t shout at idiots on the road. Instead I make smart-arse remarks, to myself or to others in the car. “Yeah, well done mate.” […]

It’s not your fault

Dear Car 2, it’s not your fault. Car 1 has parked in a stupid way, in the middle of two spots. But you can’t fit there. Really, you can’t. No matter how many times you try. Whatever angle you come in at. Your car is bigger than the space that is left. You might as […]

I’m not sure

I’m not sure, but I think the car was a blue Ford Falcon. I’m not sure, but OZC 821 may have been the licence plate number. I’m not sure, but the lady driving it may have been eating an apple. I’m not sure, but she may have got her driver licence in a corn flakes […]

Whatthe?

What the F— do you think you’re doing, Mr White Stationwagon? Where the F— did you get your driver’s licence? Why the F— do you think you can decide as you’re driving through an intersection in the left hand lane, that you are suddenly going to turn right, across three lanes of traffic, cutting me […]

Daniel’s driving adventures

Obviously some people have great problems using their indicators. After all, when your hands are on the steering wheel, the switch is a long long way away, and so awkwardly placed too. I’ve come to the conclusion that the first day of the month is when they let all the idiots onto the roads. There’s […]

Phun with phones

A couple of years ago, I had a regular TCWF feature called "Moron of the Week". It showcased a particularly moronic driver I’d seen on the roads that week. People liked it, but I got tired of the concept. Tonight however, I spotted one. Getting off the tram to go home, a woman in a […]
