Why do Taxi drivers think they rule the world

February 4th, 2011 Posted in Road Rage Tags: , ,

Just a quick grip.

Why is it Taxi driver (others as well) never use their indicators. Great, you know where you are going but what about the rest of us. If someone is waiting to turn right at a roundabout, let them know you are turning left, its the decent thing to do.

You may drive for a living and consider yourself a “professional” but your not. There are others on the road and the pavements, that need to get past you while you wait for the lazy sod who cannot be bothered to walk a few yards to a safe spot. Parents need to push their buggies along the path(why do you think most taxis have wing mirrors missing; its no accident). Folk would love to cross the road at the proper points but can’t because you’ve just nipped into Greggs to get a peas pudding bap.

Go on show us you have some consideration for others.

As all walks of life there are some good taxi drivers, but you already know who you are.

gripe over.

What do you think?
