    Did you check if he had a licence :p.....True, so many idiots on the roads that don't give a rats about the next person behind the wheel...Good that you picked up the potential for an accident and reacted accordingly...

    The disadvantage that people who come from countries that drive on the other side of the road is their natural tendency to drive on that side. I would hate to drive in their countries for that very reason. A Canadian we knew a few years ago told us how he had exited a shopping centre by turning right.However he got lucky and didn't hit anyone. Another day could have ended up in tears.
    However no country has a mortgage on idiots, we have plenty of our own. Yesterday I was following a SUV that had a lot less power than I did pass someone in a situation that I would not have considered. He or she was well over the solid white line before they were able to get back on the left side. Another day they might not have been so lucky.

Its a circus on our roads I had a young chic try to over take me yesterday on the inside while I was waiting for traffic to move on a bend then almost sideswipe me because she wouldn't get behind me and wait like the rest of us. , I thought what a farkwit.

    In my experience Asians don't overtake when it's clearly not safe. What they tend to do is pull out in front of you without looking or drive the wrong way up one way streets, or stop for no apparent reason.

    Sure it wasn't an Indian? They tend to use both sides of the road...

    From my time spent on the roads, no particular race or age group is worst than the next. I see all sorts of bulldust driving day in day out from all types of people.....Yes it can be frustrating, but you can only drive to help save your own ass

    They are a good idea, if an insurance claim is lodged and a dispute arises.....ie, the other driver is at fault and makes a claim that you were.. Or some road conditions are questionable and you have an accident....Can help prove your claim of why an accident occurred
