Rain birings out the crazy in people

Discussion in 'Your Near Misses - A Place to Vent' started by matressking, Apr 30, 2009.

  1. I was coming home from work last night approaching the bridge, coming dow the leftmost lane past a line of traffic. I was buffering and keeping an eye on the cagers when whaddya know, some moron shoots out right in front of causing an e-brake in the rain, heart in mouth situation.

    Luckily I was only at a moderate speed and gave myself enough room and time to react so I ended up a couple of feet from his bumper, but this could have ended a lot differently.

    Rain makes people do crazy things! Be extra vigilent!
  2. Acid rain ... it does strange things to people :LOL:
  3. Not to digress from your topic matressking, but I find the Oz extreme weather, in general, makes people short of a sanga or two, at a picnic,so to speak, whilst on the roads.
    Some years ago, I used to live in Alice Springs and Darwin etc. Alice ? Very hot, but bearable as it was a dry heat.
    Darwin ? Totally different story ! Standard 33 deg C, BUT 100% humidity..yuck !
    And you'd think being in a cage, with the aircon on HIGH (max, full, whatever) would make a difference ? Nope. Lots of people would actually 'lose the plot', go bananas, cuckoo.. statistics will prove this..................

    ..........this is why I left

    Stay safe everybody. :shock: :grin: :LOL:
