He was at fault, it was the woman's right of way and she had courteously let a car go. Yet in his mind he was the injured party and he wasn't above dishing out some choice phrases to show his displeasure - how dare she not let him out!!!!
Some drivers really seem to believe that they have the divine right to do what they want rather than accepting that they are sharing the road. Plus you are licensed to drive, it is not a right anyway (except in the US (Colorado) where the test was so easy, they might as well issue licenses on your birthday).
That reminds me of something I overheard a friend say one time in the US. She is an MD and she mentioned to her husband that people in Boulder drove too slowly (we were doing the limit) and that you should get up behind them to speed them up. I almost asked whether she understood the concept of stopping distance and reaction times, I wish I had.
Then again this is the same woman that used the point that you should not ban mobile phone use when driving since it is only as distracting as having a car full of kids. Should we ban all mothers who take kids to school since they are a potential danger to other road users? It never once occurred to her that her argument was based on the premise that if something bad is allowed then we should allow all bad things, even if one is much more easily preventable than the other. I doubt that any of you reading this fails to see the stupidity inherent in this argument. I do like her I am just amazed that this highly intelligent woman could be so dangerously inclined on the road, especially having worked in an ER. Then again all the medical students I knew in my first couple of years at university smoked, drank too much and had ingested every substance that it is possible to ingest in any method imaginable. I guess that means they were familiar with the stuff when treating for it later.
Oh and another thing. To the guy in the delivery van parked on the main road this morning. If you have pulled into a legitimate parking space at the side of the road at the front of a row of parked cars, don't put your hazard lights on to signify that you are parked. The car behind you obscures the view so that it looks as if you are indicating to pull out! Stop it!
