Quote from: Michael_Rolls on April 13, 2018, 17:46:48 pmI guess a lot of the bad driving - over and above pure incompetence/lack of consideration - is exacerbated by the level of traffic involved. Until we came up here all my driving had been in the home counties - other than holidays in France - including central London and I regarded it as the norm. Up here, even in Glasgow and Edinburgh life seemed easier . The levels of incompetence/lack of consideration were much the same, but the density was lower than I was used to, so no problem.After we had been up here about three years we did a tour of relatives 'darn sarf' - Staffs, Surrey, Kent, and Hereford and once in the Surrey bit - much of it really south London nowadays - I was appalled at the aggression on display. Three days of putting up with it and I realised that I was driving just as aggressively as everyone else (but aggression and lack of consideration don't go totally hand in hand)Mike

Quote from: Bad Raven on May 01, 2018, 15:21:04 pmNot driven in Rome but have been there several times, and always astounded that when someone wants to cross a busy central Rome road, they just do.......no waiting, little warning, they just turn and cross........and everything stops and waits.
