Was riding home from the city this arvo and pulled up at the lights. I stopped neatly in the RH tyre track a good distance from the car in front (hey, I'm still on my Ls! )
As I was patiently waiting, the woman in the car behind me drove straight past me and stopped at the lights in front of me as though I wasn't even there!!! I really think she was completely unaware that I had any right to my own lane and was oblivious that she had done anything wrong!
Therefore I have come up with a simple solution: All car drivers are to be implanted with a small electric receiver under the skin. All scooter/motorbike riders are to be issued with a small electric zapper which emits a harmless burst of electricity. It may be used every time a driver fails to respond to a dirty look or toot of the horn after doing something dangerous and stupid which puts a scooter-rider's safety in jeopardy.
Now, how do we sell this to the powers that be?
