Where do us pedestrians fit into these stereotypes?

It's 100 points for running down a pedestrian, 150 for a cyclist. Children don't count - that's just nasty. No one wants to hurt a child.

I do. They always veer and wander randomly across the pavement ('sidewalk' to yanks) without watching where they're going, and get in my bloody way. :lay:

Proves my point tho. You Pedestrians are evil and wish harm on children and should be eliminated at all cost.

(What about bikeists?? It's the Isle of Man TT races and it seems the whole of the European bike enthusiasts membership have descended on the port of Heysham. About a mile from my house. They're a true menace!!)

I wouldn't wish harm on them if they walked in straight lines and kept close to their parents.

I also wish harm on drivers who don't know how zebra crossings work. :lay:

Well I know how they work:

As the pedestrian approaches the crossing, slow a little. And then when they start to cross, speed up to get over the crossing, hopefully eliminating them in the process. :plot:

Anyone in a flashy new Audi/BMW/Merc is an arrogant twat.

Honda owners (except of those sporty models) are sensible and boring.

I could go on, but I'm too curious to know if others share my views?

What do you assume about fellow drivers simply based on their choice of vehicle?


RANT

Just yesterday, as I was helping my mother with grocery shopping, I saw a Mercedes flooring it, going out from an intersection. It hit the breaks about 40 meters later, as a car was *gasp* in his way that was leaving a parking space or something like that. Big tire screech, seconds passed in silence. No one and nothing was hit, the Mercedes, as it turned out, stopped to wait in front that flat, anyway (once it got around the other car). That car was parking in front of two others, blocking them from backing out of their lots, for some fucking reason. So that was also either some moronic driver or an asshole to leave their car in the way like that. But, anyway. When we passed from an angle from where I could see into the driver seat of the Mercedes, sure enough, it was some young punk, as expected, who didn't look the least bit bothered by the small scene he caused and, as it is often the case with people like that, he was probably in a rush and that's why he stepped on the gas, taking off like a bat outta hell, just to cross that 40-60 meters all the sooner, because heaven forbid such fools from paying attention to the speed limit or just simply driving normally, without endangering other drivers. It's moments like these where a genuinely have the urge to go over, open their door, yank them out, kick their jaw in, reach into their car, tear out their steering wheel and pull their head through it, then ask them, politely, if they wouldn't mind driving like a normal person from then on. :nono:
