i hate i hate big people carriers

i am so sick of big people carriers. i was cut up about 10 times today atleast

i think a pettition should be made to get them off britains roads

there is no need for people to drive 2.5 litre engined wagons in city centres or for a school run.





either that or shoot all the drivers

Re: i hate i hate big people carriers

Cutting up is to do with schtoopid drivers, not big cars.

They'd be schtoopid in a Bravo too, if they had one.

Re: i hate i hate big people carriers

And as for banning, you realise my ickle Stilo is far less economical than our big bus?!

I am also taking it down to London this weekend, probably with 4 or 5 other adults in it?

I don't get your logic - end of the day, I pay the road tax, I pay the insurance, I pay my fuel tax, I can therefore drive what I like, when I like, where I like

Theres no need for a 2.5L T (petrol) driven car to travel an average of 5 miles a day...you try telling some people that

...If you want a good start, try the driver of the swedish lump about 25m from your Bravo

Well if you can afford to run it, fair enough .

But I dont see your argument, you dont really drive yours much atm do you, with it being rather broken and everything

yeah loads of people have almost pulled into me in big vehicals, 4x4's, busses, people carries etc. its not fun in a little uno, luckily its usually at low speeds so i can either accelerate around or brake to a safe distance

EDIT: just wanted to add to this a little, please understand i would only accelerate to get the nose in front so the driver can see me, i forget i have a horn (a pathetic one)

Ok, a scenario - Jules drops off the kids at school, she then decides to go to the gym, go shopping, see her mum, etc - she is then a single person driving a 7 seater at that point in time? So she gets persecuted because of that?

And as for walking - you got to be kidding our local council have refused to put a crossing on our road, which is a major A road in our county! They did put one in a quarter of a mile away, which services a few houses [no doubt lived in by a councillor or something ]
