Tuesday Rant

Dear Mr. Driver,

Those round objects on the front of your vehicle are called "headlights".
And at dusk or when it's raining (but especially at dusk), you need to turn them on. Sure you can see fine. I can see fine. But what I can't see is YOU. You can see me, but that's because my lights are on.

Think, stupid think !!.

Is it all the other drivers on the road or just the ones I meet?

A year or two ago I was driving from the main road to my hous down a road that is one car wide. One of my less pleasant neighbours drives a big four wheel drive that he soesn't like getting dirty and usually, through agressive driving, forces oncoming traffic up onto the ditch so that he needn't slow down OR get his LandRover dirty. I hate drivers like that so when he tried it on me I stopped in the road to allow him drive up on the ditch to get round me. He didn't. He sat. He waited. I sat. I waited. Eventually I got out off my small car walked over to him and asked him a question. "Is this an off road vehicle then?" Said I. "It is" said he. "Well get of the f&^<|<in road then" Said I.

Ironically this gentleman had lived in Holland for a good while before coming home and as I too had done a fair bit of driving in Holland I knew he didn't pick up his bad habits there. My experience of Dutch drivers is that they are very friendly, flashing there lights and tooting their horns to say "Hello", "Good Day" or "Doooie" (How do you spell that?). Only problem with Dutch drivers I found is that they ALL (every single one of them) drive on the wrong side of the road. So dangerous that!!! Even found myself doing it after a few weeks.

Mind if I join the rant...?

My favorite is the driver who uses their horn as a doorbell. There was a woman, who picking up a car pooler every morning, at the same time each day (6:30 am), pulled up in front of the house and laid on her honking horn...not once, not twice, but three times! After a month or so of this, I grew very weary of being awakened on my days off (I am a night worker...so morning sleep is very precious to me).

I stormed out of the house confronting her. 'Can't you get out of the car and ring the doorbell', I asked. She said, well, what are horns for? I then read her the riot act about them being used to avoid accidents in traffic, pedestrians, etc. I also told her, that everytime she honked her horn in front of the house, she was not only 'ringing' the car poolers doorbell, but also mine, and about twenty of our neighbors.

I later spoke to my car pooling neighbor about this situation. The driver had agreed to use her cell and call ahead when she was within a block or so of the house. No more early wake ups!

Remember if you ever drive in Iceland that you must have the headlights on at all times, even during the summer when we have daylight 24/7.
