Every couple of weeks I have to do a 6 hour round journey on the motorway, luckily I am not the driver but I get to "enjoy" the trip from the front passenger seat and trust me, it is enough to put me off learning how to drive and driving on the motorway, COMPLETELY.
My first thought, whenever we get on the motorway is, WHY IS EVERYONE SO ANGRY. I can pretty much guarantee that every time we make the journey, there will be someone who either cuts us up BADLY, pulls across the lanes without looking, (Even I know it goes, mirror, signal, manoeuvre) or creates road rage incidents that leave me shaking with fear.
By the way, the driver of the car I am in, is a good driver. He's not too fast, not too slow, doesn't hog the overtaking lane, (KNOWS it is an overtaking lane) and moves across to the middle lane when cars are coming onto the motorway, a polite, considerate driver. Other cars? Not so much.
And after doing this journey for nearly two years, I have come to the conclusion that the main culprit of the "road rage" incident is the Audi.
I would honestly say that at least 7 times out of 10, any incident will involve an Audi, driven by a middle age man, this is MY experience. Now I am not saying that ALL Audi drivers are reckless idiots who feel so inferior in their life that they feel that the only time they get to wield power over others is when they are behind the wheel, but it seems that a lot of them are.
They have to go fast. Are you doing the speed limit? NOPE, IT IS NOT ENOUGH, MOVE OUT OF THE WAY, I AM COMING THROUGH WITH MY AUDI. WATCH MY REAR LIGHTS AS I ZOOM AWAY FROM YOU.
I just don't get it, WHY ARE YOU SO ANGRY, drivers? Why do you not want to get to your destination in one piece? Why do you not want ME to get to my destination in one piece?
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the long drive and "people watching" as we go down the Motorway. I have seen some STRANGE things while being on the motorway, (Why are there lots of bottles of apple juice discarded at the side of the road, anyway?) but i'm always slightly worried about angry drivers.
Does anyone else drive regularly on the motorway? Do you find that you experience "angry drivers"? Audis or otherwise? You may find that it's another type of car that you find always gives you grief, I would love to hear your stories.
And Audi drivers, I would love to hear from you too, I KNOW there are some good ones out there, what do you think about the reputation of the Audi driver?
Let me know.
