ĎAccidentsí on the Westlink.

People who use the Applegreen Stations to bypass traffic.
I have to say they really need to introduce motorway driving onto the driving test, how f**king hard is it to leave your phone be and keep a safe distance from the car in front without driving into the back of some ****. And then we have everyone nosey **** slowing down to have a look after they stand outside their cars with their two arms at one length blocking a carriage way instead of at least moving onto the hard shoulder. Right enough like motorways are the roads that require the least ďdrivingĒ yet there were at least three collisions on the M1 today  >:(

Oh, I hear ya!

Itís really frustrating.  Canít get over the amount of accidents on the M1/Westlink.  Unless the damage is serious, just move your fcuken car out of the road!  Then their are the idiots who constantly weave in and out of lanes.

Iíve a simpler solution.

Tax corporate parking at £10k pa, make the leasing of private housing parking spaces illegal, plus during the working week set a sliding scale whereby parking for more than 4 hours in one car park costs at least £50, and set a minimum fine of £200 for anyone who uses the same off-street parking zone twice in one day.

Then watch while everyone leaves their car at home.

And get to work how?
Bus for the people that find it convenient. Train for the people that find it convenient. Bike for the people that find it convenient. Leaves more road space for the people that absolutely have to take cars. Cars take up too much room per person, it's entirely appropriate that there should be disincentives for single-occupancy vehicles.




You know how Belfast is set up infrastructure wise?

If you don't work in the city centre or along one of the main arterial routes you're stuffed irrespective of the well intentioned platitudes.

People bringing breakfast into a morning meeting. Get up a few minutes earlier and crunch your granola in your own kitchen. I don't want to hear it in a meeting.

This. The hottest February on recording, in Ireland, was in 1891. Did they start worrying like the cod who wrote this piece? Did they fook.

This is the problem. Belfasts bus routes and times are abysmal. Glider is only the start of what's needed here.

I can't stand complaints about "sledging"

Anyone who steps on a sports field that can't take the jibes should not play sports. Its part of the game. If anything it should make you want to win even more. Nothing but crybabies nowadays.

People can take jibes. Itís making fun of people who are deceased that annoys people, etc

A fella did that on me where he parked next in the queue and then went and paid so I reversed into the carwash and then got out an went and paid.  When I came out again I put the toekn in and sat on the wall reading the paper until it was finished then jumped into the car as if I hadnt seen him.

So, no consideration for others. Your mammy must be proud.

Cars breaking red lights.
I've noticed it getting steadily worse of the past few years but I saw 4 cars break a red light this morning that was already red a few seconds before the first car broke it.
I have often got a green light only to have to stop to avoid hitting a car that has broke the red coming from the other side.

Hate people who donít use the pump furthest away. Some gimp sat waiting on a car leaving the forecourt. So I waited behind thinking heíd take the one furthest as it was also empty. But no the dodo just went for the nearest one and there wasnít any room to pass. I end up looking like a dick as there was a wee queue developing into fiveways having to manoeuvre into the pump on the other side and stretch the hose over my car Which I donít like doing. Such bad petrol station etiquette

A red light means "stand by for three more cars to go through." That's my standard response to the "cyclist need to obey the laws" crowd in the online comments under any article about cycling.
