Sometimes I wish I were a cop…

…just so I could bust all the bad drivers out there. The amount of bad driving I see, especially in Auckland, is phenomenal! By far, my biggest peeve on the road is with people who are too lazy to signal. It's not that hard to flick your signalling stick—especially when you're leaving a roundabout!

That little ‘courtesy’ (it's a legal requirement, but a vast number of Jafas seem to be wilfully ‘ignorant’ of that) means that people can move through roundabouts much faster—as soon as one signals out of the roundabout, other drivers can enter it straight away, safe in the knowledge that one isn't going to end up in their path (unless one is stupid and changes one's mind about leaving the roundabout—but that's another rant for another day).
