Morning Ride

On most days, driving in the morning is so much fun because I go against the traffic on my way to work. But there are those days where you could just strangle the driver in front of you. Today is one of those days, and especially since it is a Monday. The following are a few things I hate to encounter in the morning but have no power to change.

1. Slow driver in front.
I just don’t get why anyone would drive below 50kph on a single road! There should be a law against this. Especially worse when you are 10 cars behind and no one dares to overtake the slow vehicle. If you are one of them, and still intend to drive at 20kph, don’t be selfish, drive a little bit to the left and give a little space for others to overtake.

2. Slow on the right late.
At least the driver on point number 1 is driving on a single lane. But it’s idiots like this that makes you think if they ever went through any kind of driver’s ed. If there is an empty lane on the left, and a car seems to be closing near behind you, what’s the best thing to do? Move to the freakin left lane! If you are driving below 80kph, what’s the best lane to use? The freakin left lane! If there is a long line of cars behind you when driving on the right lane, what do you do? Left lane left lane left lane!

3. Trucks trucks trucks
I can’t say this enough but trucks are a menace during rush hours. They should never be allowed on the road between 6am – 8am, at lunch breaks and between 4pm – 6pm – unless somehow someone creates a trucks only lane or a no trucks zone – otherwise, these giant vehicles just make the morning traffic worse than it already is.

Fewh. Have a good Monday!
