Red light runners 08:03 - May 17 with 966 viewsPendejo

Seems to be getting more and more common. Not just the failed Amber gamblers who go thru the moment they turn red, now seeing them seconds after turned red.

The other morning stopped at a light that has just turned red and a car came from 3 cars back to go thru on opposite side of the road, narrowly missing the amber gambler turning left into the road.

Cyclists get a bad rap for this, but I see a lot more cars doing it, and I would wager a sum of money that a lot more would if they werent stopped by the car ahead.

See this on a daily basis on my commute to work, it’s becoming more common. Everyone’s in a rush these days.

What I'm seeing regularly now is first to cars stop and 3rd overtakes them to run the light on wrong side of the road. So these folks aren't even hampered by the car in front.

Not really sure why you brought cyclists into this. But yes, seeing lots and lots doing this now, at roundabouts in particular, where I'm now also seeing drivers 'filter' into traffic at the give way line.

I think it's more than just people being in a rush, it's that more and more people think the rules just don't apply to them...

Not seeing the wrong side of the road thing. But am seeing lots of lots of traffic offences. I've put it down to decades of cuts meaning plod are never about, so some drivers are taking advantage.

What I'm seeing, which I find absolutely appalling is people on their phones. I don't mean speaking into them, which is dangerous enough, but people clearly texting away on their lap. Staggering number of people I saw doing that the other day when I made a point of looking out for it, some whilst doing 70 on the M11.

Yep me too on the daily commute. A large proportion of which, seem to be, (on my drive anyway), young women in the 18-25 bracket.

However judging by the lads I teach in the same age bracket, who have got their heads constantly in their phone, it may be more balanced than that.

It was a real mixed bag the other day, I actually found it more to be men now I think about it but perhaps that's just a reflection on there being more male drivers at that time of day (I imagine, I've not fact checked that). One bloke was at least 70 and driving a Range Rover with a personalised plate near Newmarket. Occasional glance at the road between whatever he was looking at. I really had to resist the temptation to get his attention and call him a w**ker.

Funnily enough, driving down the A12 every day like I do, the majority of people I see driving whilst on their phones are gents I would say around 40-50 years old. Staggering.
