bad drivers who blame others......

Yesterday I was riding the public transport which was running at very high speed. From a distance I already saw this parked vehicle driven by an old man who was starting to move his vehicle. But because my driver was not paying attention to this, his eyes were only in one direction and he was driving at full speed, he didn't see the other vehicle and accidentally hit it. His reaction? Blaming the other driver when it was obvious that he was the one who was not watching. I really hate drivers who blame others for their negligence. As a regular commuter I have encountered a lot of this rude and reckless drivers who have no regard for other people. I hope we can rid the roads of all bad drivers for they pose a threat to everyone.

Ohhh God really some people not see or check the other side they saw only one side and vehicle came from other side and accidents happened. I have seen many time the people blame to others even fault is their own.

Most bad drivers are good at that. When its their fault, they have no choice but to blame someone else. I hope you loses his job over this. he could have hurt people real bad.

I hate people who don't have the courage to face the consequences ot their actions too. I always believe that in most situations both parties are to blame. It is just the percentage of fault that differs. In this case both drivers are to blame. The biggest mistake was the driver entering the lane. But the bus driver should pay more attention.

I agree with you Costas, that both drivers should take responsibility of their actions. However, there are instances wherein only one driver is obviously at fault.

Some cars like the red light,some pedestrians like jaywalker,this is an indisputable fact that hurry when they thend to ignore the danger,also led to mutual accusations.

There are a lot of drivers who used to be like that. They keep blaming others and point a finger towards. And I guess there are people who acts like that. And nothing we can do about them. :)

This results to road rage which could get ugly. I have read of stories of drivers shooting or killing another driver.

Hi friend, you are right, mostly this kind of bad drivers blame other persons to escape from their mistakes. Good to hear that you are accepting your drivers fault. It is really hard to change this kind of persons attitudes as they are having it for long and they always find excuse for their mistakes

That is very true. They think they are always right and others are always wrong.

That's one of the problems I've noticed with a lot of drivers. They think that it's enough to learn how to drive. Responsible and courteous driving aren't in their dictionary. Well, actually, I don't even think they know most traffic rules. This is probably one reason why they have the tendency to blame others since they themselves don't know the mistakes they've done. Something must really be done about these bad and inconsiderate drivers. You are very right that they pose a real threat to the safety of everyone.

It could be because they just learn driving on their own. When you take up driving at a driving school, I think courtesy and rules are taught and so drivers who learned how to drive at a school are said to be good drivers.

If there's one thing these drivers are good at is to point fingers and blame anybody but themselves whenever they get into vehicular accidents. Whether you have the right of way or a responsible driver, it wouldn't matter if the one driving next to you is careless and reckless.

Yes, they always put the blame on others even if the passenger has witnessed how bad he was driving.

More cars and more bad drivers or on the road as well . I remember driving behind a suv and a truck in front the SUV , the truck decide to over take in a small space and nearly cause the SUV to crash in the truck and that would have probably cause me to run into the SUV also . After that , the truck just decide to make a sudden undertake again and nearly cause accident in the short time . I started now wonder if the driver was drunk . Luckily we were both watching the truck driver because he is a crazy driver .

That is another danger there because in our country our traffic enforcers are not so keen about drunkards who are driving.

Did you get the license plate number and did you report the person? Maybe the driver should get a nice reminder that there are rules on the road and that one should be honest and pay for one's infractions. Some people do not learn until they are caught out and are made to pay for resulting damages.

Some people are so vulnerable, whenever they are in trouble. The only thing they can do is to blame other people for being into that kind of misery. I feel bad to those who can not hold back for a while and take the responsibility.

That is true! I think public transport drivers in our country are the worst! They don't seem to abide by the laws imposed on them while they are on the road. How can they be this way?
