Are some posts missing? If so why? 

And it would seem the user profile has gone.

Lots of complaints about motorists but when I drove up the N1 at 5am for the Stellies bike race 2 years ago the right hand lane was the ONLY lane in use by cyclists driving their cars up to the race

Have you seen the lack of driving skills of cars sporting "stay wider of the rider" bumper stickers ...

There was a Karen on facebook complaining about a cyclists getting in her way and swearing at her when she swerves into them. The average speed on kalk bay main road at 11am on saturday was 15km/h, so not sure where Karen wanted to get passed the cyclists. 

Always astonished that people are in a rush to sit in traffic or a red light.

This is so true, saw a SA stand UP with Vlismiss(spelling) so funny as above along the lines of only in SA will we be swearing at the taxis(only form of transport for 90% of OUR WORK FORCE) and still moan when the domestics dare be late, only in SA are we in such a rush to get to the kakkest jobs 

or rush to malls to stand in long queues to pay for parking

 

in the army we always had the saying HURRY UP AND WAIT🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🙈

I recall this. Then at the R44 turn off there was a queue so when they got to within 100 m of the turn it was absolute carnage. I just calmly drove onto paarl and took a different route with zero traffic. Then the start was delayed becasue so many cyclist were stuck at registration and in the n1 traffic jam they created lol

They are not cyclists yet, they are in a car. You saw drivers in the right hand lane...

Was this not the Val de Vie Race? 

I ended up parking my car on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere and riding the last 6km to make the start.

I don't buy it. 

Motorists in general are rubbish. I hate them when I'm driving, I hate them when I'm on the bike. 

If people weren't so self obsessed, had a little bit of respect for each other and just treated everyone better then it wouldn't matter.

Idiots. The lot of us

Exactly. Eventually the planet will shrug us off and we will all be just a 15 minute bad memory in the geological record.
