Are Aussies the worst drivers in the world?


About Justin

Sharing my thoughts and opinions with you


Stupidity is dangerous. Put that stupidity behind the wheel of a car, or on a motorbike, and you have carnage waiting to happen. Watch!

I am sick to death of reckless, bad and ignorant drivers being allowed on our roads.

Just the other week, somebody crept into my lane right next to me, twice in the span of about 500 metres, causing me to honk to remind them I was there. This is careless and dangerous. Not checking to see if a vehicle is next to you before changing lanes isn't a mistake, it's the practise of a terrible driver.

The following video is a collection of dash cam footage from around Australia that illustrates how we have some of the worst drivers in the world. The drivers in this aren't making simple mistakes, they are intentionally driving recklessly, dangerously and being dickheads.

These people are putting lives in danger through their stupidity and knowing that many of them are still out on our roads is incredibly daunting.

Our system is too light on drivers like this, with many of them not even being caught, let alone punished. Yet we throw the book at someone doing 75km/h in a 70km/h zone. And while I agree with the rules against mobile phone usage and I am angered when I see people texting while driving, surely somebody quickly tapping a screen to change the song they're listening to is far less dangerous than these low lifes. 

I think that dash cam footage should be sent in to police to be reviewed. That way we can get these idiots off our roads, making it a safer place for all.

Do you agree? Let me know in the comments.
