there should be a spotted section set up on the forum similiar to the one on english forums like UKMIVs i know we havent got as big a population but it would still be a bit of crack

In my humble opinion a spotted forum is for just what it says, spotty teenagers with nothing better to do.

The Southern Cross ? Where it joins the M11 car-park at 6 in the evenings ??

Fucking motorways are pointless when the tools on the road havent a clue which lane to be in.

Tell me about, gobshites just sitting in the overtaking lane, know you want to get by and there is no cars in front of them
whats their point
they cause the feckin accidents, because your trying to get by them and you have to undertake.

tell me about it recently drove to leeds proper motorway the whole way a joy to drive on - no one drives up your arse and if you even gain a bit of distance on the car in front they pull over,even had the unusual exp of driving by hedge cutting at 70MPH if that was over here it would be tailed back for miles with people rubber necking!

one of the most refreshing experiences of my driving life!

On the M50 from the Sandyford exit to the Loughlinstown exit the traffic moves brilliantly, then stop. But I have to say that I travel from Citywest to Wexford every Friday evening and the new stretch of M50 had saved me about 45 mins.


Could save 60 if people knew what motorways were and how to use them

The funniest part is getting on the motorway early on a wet day - the fast lane is completley dry and inside is completley untouched !

What the country needs is driver education and awareness, the fact is we've never had motorways before and we just dont know how to use them. You have to hand it to the Brits, the slowest person over there is still doing 70mph.

This country is too negative - advertising campaigns for deaths, speeding, points, but not a single sign or advert reminding you what lane to be in, to use indicators or how to use a roundabout. I'd say half the country never had a roundabout when they did their driving test, and a learner isnt even allowed on the motorway so you've no chance there either. Look at the UK's chevron distance reminder, simple and effective.

Has anyone in this country even been stopped by the garda for hogging the outside lane ? I dont mean prosecuted, just a slap on the wrists or a warning.

If people used the lanes properly, this bitterness of letting someone in front of you would stop, tailgating would stop, quicker traffic would move on, and we'd have a much more efficient road network. I'm not saying it's gonna solve M50 carpark problems but it would certainly help the newer stretches.

I think we need 3-lane motorways even moreso than the Brits, we've less traffic - but look how close all the interchanges/junctions are, the traffic doesnt have time to settle down.

I've been saying it for years that there should be signs on our motorways telling people which lane to use. I agree 100% with everything you said there Tom. It's frustrating how stupid people can be on the motorway, particularly truck drivers pulling out into faster moving traffic. That wrecks my head big time!!

Talking about things that piss me off on the roads, how many people here have seen the following..
Driving down the road doing 100k and a car goes by with 1 or 2 adults in the front all belted and buckled up...and a toddler standing on the back seat looking out the back window at ya!! AAGGGHH!! if I was a cop I'd throw the book at them.

Do these people thing that the back of a car is invincible, that if they crash or even hit the breaks hard that nothing will happen to the child in the back???

I'm sorry if I offend anyone with my following statement: but anyone who does this is not fit to look after kids.

Phew, got that off my chest now.
