Wimmin and roundabouts!

#1
Living near 'roundabout hell' I constantly come up behind a dithering woman driver who hasn't a clue what to do. Do driving instructors only tell men how to tackle a roundabout as part of some Masonic deal? :?

Posted here on The NAAFI Bar 'cos I thought I was going to blow a fuse. Calmed down now.

God I know us woman drivers are a nightmare I mean all we do is give a blow j*b and the instructor gives us a licence it's as simple as that!

but surely changing lanes in our 4x4 child mobile whilst going all the way round the roundy bout is what we are meant to do is it not?


still managed to pass my test first time...

Whenever I see bad driving, I instruct the lass as we pass the culprit with a simple: "Demographic?" Whereby she tells me to which of the 3 identifyable groups the culprit (almost invariably) belongs.

1. Woman
2. Old Woman
3. Asian Woman

Not foolproof, but even she admits that the trend exists.

If you think roundabouts are mad - got to the states and get to one of these things.

No matter what direction you arrive from there's a stop sign. You kind of negotiate who goes first - mostly stare at each other until either the one with the biggest monster truck wins or you just say 'sod - it - all' and go for it. I've never been subjected to such a variety of gestures. No wonder they're all so uptight if they have to endure that little charade every couple of hundred metres - sorry yards!!

Actually the lack of roundabouts in the States was the reason that the DVLA said I couldn't transfer my American driving license to a British one automatically but had to do the entire test over here!

You'd love it out here RTFQ, (you missed off Old Asian Woman) though to be fair, the worst drivers IMHO are Chinese men - absolutely no grasp of what's going on, inside or outside of the car. :?

Assume roundabouts were invented by planners putting brews down on maps during planning meetings?

Have to add the old chap in the cap to the list of bad drivers here folks. Maybe can class as turning into old woman in dotage but certainly one of the collection we anticipate when approaching a poorly driven vehicle tottering around the roads. As previouslty stated others are women, old women and asians (used to live in Gravesend, nightmare!!).

Ledbury by-pass, Derby, A40 past Oxford or Gloucester, most of central Bristol (Wtf? How are you supposed to find your way through there unless you were born there? It's like trying to complete the final level of Wipeout 2097 but without the cool weapons!).
