I will never say bad things to italian drivers again... well not for a while.

Some days ago I was driving thru Bologna, Italy, and stopped at a railway intersection with barriers down. On the other lane a man riding a bicycle crossed the intersection anyway, so when he passed by my car I gave him a loud ironic applause. He was out of his mind and started screaming "What the f*ck do you want? Mind your own f*cking business" and went away.

I can't help but thinking that if Italy is the mess it is, people like him are to blame...

It's not really that bad, I don't think that it's dangerous (although that blue Fiat that came fromt he fas tlane was being a bit risky). Once my uncle missed the exit for Porto airport when he was taking me, my parents and my aunt to the airport, so he pulled over and reversed a bit. He drives a seatbeltless (in the back) 1980's Fiat Uno as well . His wife (another aunt) died the other day

I don't, it's vigilante justice. You cannot judge whether it's someone trying to bypass a traffic jam illegally, of if it is someone from EMS driving a civil vehicle.

Apparently it's in South Africa, they seem to be worse than the Americans . Unsurprisingly though it's for a US TV programme.

there was similar situation here in zagreb few years ago when there was some crappy summit of some walruses who thought they ruled the world. police haven't make good announcment about possible traffic problems, so thousands of cars remained blocked on the streets. they've been escaping on all possible way. most popular was using the tram tracks, different green areas, and i remember that a concrete mixer stucked in that crowd, and to protect his machine he had to throw full load of fresh concrete in the middle of an avenue

Here in Greece, in traffic jams on highways (especially on weekends) we have many drivers who drive on the emergency lane...

Note: all of these accidents were caused by the drivers ignoring "no turn" signs or running red lights.
