Young Drivers...worse than you think:
"A new survey has revealed that one in five young drivers play Draw Something or Angry Birds while driving, and more than 30 per cent admitted they check Facebook from behind the wheel."

44 per cent have sent texts!

    Let's see:
    Young drivers are careless and rubbish drivers.
    Middle aged people drive Audis and are rubbish drivers.
    Old people are half blind and have the reactions of a potato.

    Only solution is to ban everyone except me. I am an awesome driver.
    I don't do smileys.

    And yet you've pushed me right up against the top of the page without leaving me enough room.

    I'm feeling a bit jumpy. Not ten minutes ago, a young [email protected] in a hat deliberately forced me to stop, jumped out of his old Transit and swore at me because I wasn't riding at the edge of the road like "cyclists are supposed to".

    Honestly.

    Probably because you don't pay road tax.

    And a couple of months ago an old guy (really, really old, like 40 or something) punched me for exactly the same.
