    I think shity driving is due to driver overconfident, driven by ego, to prove themselves they are better drivers and/or their vehicles are better than the rest.

    In the US most of the vehicle in the ditches during bad weather are SUVs and Trucks. People has been mislead (via advertisement) that AWD/4WD, ABS, Traction Control and the rest of the techno crap are there to defy physics.

    been there tried that and ended up uninstalling it.
    I understand business needs to advertise, it's just those ..in your face ads that splash on the screen or take over the page and video ads that auto play

    When someone indicates right, and then goes straight ahead at the roundabout.

    When they don't indicate or look over their shoulder and just merge lanes

    Or when they do indicate, but believe that indicating gives them right of way and just merge anyway.

    Halloween................

    So, with Halloween getting traction in Aust with the kiddies, I thought I'd get a costume that would scare the bejesus out of the little ones that come knocking at the door. This should put an end to it in my street.

    I am getting very cynical about a certain car insurance TV ad. You’n’ I know who it is.

    When they were promoting how the better they know you, the better the deal will be for you, I started getting a quote on line, using BS info that was very close to my situation. After answering numerous personal questions, (the only answers they didn’t seem to need was my sexual preferences and underpants brand), I was advised that a representative would call me on my (made-up) mobile phone number.
    My daughter went through it all a few years ago, and they annoyed the crap out of her with persistent phone calls, but very little detail until she agreed to take a policy,... which she didn’t.

    Then they started advertising that the less you use your car, the cheaper it would be. So, if I don’t use my car at all, or don’t have one......how cheap is that going to be.?

    Now, the muppet who spruiks the sales is telling us that we can get $$$s back to use to buy burgers, movie tickets, whatever.
    If I took out a policy could I use those ‘free $$$s’ to reduce my very low premium ?
    Who is paying for the cost of the burgers, movie tickets, whatever ? Premium holders ?
    Do they think we are all gullible and stupid ?

    To be honest... why you need insurance in the 1st place? Humans have been roaming the planet for more than a millennia without them. Not sure how is in Oz but in the USA, the Ins Co use fearmongering tactics to peddle their services. The legal system is setup to force you on buying them and pass frivolous law suits. Is a very round system that suits blood sucking lawyers and insurers. We have a company called Progressive that will install a tacking/bug/device on the ODB2 port. To monitor your driving behavior and give you a discount for been a good kid. GM OnStar, they are on the driver tracking business; even they say they are not.

    Is interesting how insurances came about. A group of bankers (Loyds of London), making "winning bets" on low risk shipments for a fee.

    People who accuse you of being "disrespectful" when its just stating the truth that everyone else can plainly see but aren't willing to say it.

    Having to deal with such a person, its now 1 month, only 11 more months of them to go :rolleyes:
    Now to wait for them to build themselves up to eventually fail and have everyone see them for what they really are.

    Rattles in cars................for the last couple of months my Crewie had developed a very loud annoying vibration noise somewhere in the cabin.

    I thought it was the passenger B pillar or door trim, LH passengers said it was coming from behind my seat, back seat passengers said it was from somewhere in front near the gear shift console. Working around and banging bits of interior trim would not replicate this noise.

    Last week found my lost sunnies in the overhead console pocket ....... noise gone, and hasn’t come back. Doh !
