Clicked on the Ford Focus Third Generation link on el reg and got this
Also read the review http://www.reghardware.com/2011/04/26/review_car_ford_focus_3g/ and first thought is who needs a driver  Sad
I loved one of the comments

The Focus will actually make you indicate before changing lanes - can't be having that!

OR.... actually staying on the left side of the road, instead of "hogging" the centre line, and expecting motorists to get out of their way......
(By hogging the centre line, they also present a "wide" vehicle to overtake, instead of a "motorbike", they become dustcarts.... and revel in it too !... is it any wonder motorists and bikers don`t "get on" ... )

I've known loads of bikers over the years and all of them blame car drivers for their accidents. When out driving on the road and seeing how they all behave i'm really not surprised they have accidents in the first place. They never stick to speed limits, don't slow down for bends in the road etc.
I'm very cautious about pulling out from a junction but the number of times i've had motorbikes shoot past at stupid speeds is stupid.
I had one arrogant bugger behind me once years ago.. he eventually overtook me with his "foot to the floor" and stuck his fingers up at me as he went past. Terrible shame he behaved like that as the next time i saw him was at the end of the road.. he was standing there with a plod who had his notebook out  Grin

And the worst part of it is.................... most of them are well over 45, or even 50 years old, and .... to put it nicely ..... " should know better ".
