Six and a half hours!
I only went to Dartford and back.
Six and a half hours to do 120 miles.
It would literally have been quicker for me to have gone on my pushbike.
Of course, this was all down to stupid people.
Stupid people who have accidents on the road.
They drive too fast.
They talk on the phone.
And they fucking text whilst they drive.
I’ve seen it: people driving with their phone on the steering wheel in front of them, so that they can answer the oh-so-important text that they have just received: “Gr8 time last nite babe. LOLZ”.
This sort of thing goes on all the time and despite threats of larger fines and penalties, it continues, because 9 times out of 10 people get away with it.
But it causes accidents, and whilst for most of us that can mean the considerable inconvenience of being stuck in traffic for hours upon end, for those unfortunate enough to be on the receiving end of an idiot driver’s actions, it can mean a hell of a lot more.
I found this video on the YouTubes and it shows quite graphically what can happen when stupid people are let behind the wheel.
Unfortunately – as is evident from the comments below the video – stupid people seem to outnumber the rest of us.
