spread it around to everyone you know, especially KIDS. I posted it in the OT last week, but I guess not many people saw it.

I saw the video a week ago, very good public service announcement.

Definitely should be shown in the U.S. The British don't drive near as much as we do and have less teen drivers as the driving age is higher.

Sorry rd...I didn't know that. I have stayed out of the OT thread because I can't keep up.

It never fails...I find it most frequently at the light at Jones Maltsberger & 410 (in front of Applebees) turning left to go WEST. There are two lanes designated to make a left turn...I"m typically in the right of the two lanes and as we turn the car in the left lane makes a wide turn and ends up in my lane cutting me off. At that particular intersection I find it happens often;twice this week.

Same thing happens at Military/1604 when you exit Westcreek. I've been cut off too many times to count and the offenders never realize they did anything wrong, except this one idiot that tried it with a gravel truck and lost big time. I so wanted to go up to the person driving the gravel truck and give them a high-five for finally giving these losers what they've been deserving.

It wasnt my truck though, I was driving for another friend, His driver had gotten arrested at a DPS checkpoint. This is turning onto the loop right?

it was one of those gravel dump trucks and it was leaving Westcreek and turning north onto 1604. The location where the morons always try to cut across the other lane to get to the Shell. The car definitely lost the battle and I doubt the dump truck had more than a couple scratches.
