Driver forgets how to overtake

Bless! This one can’t drive properly. The problem is that until he learns to overtake safely, and behave himself on the road, I don’t know how I am going to be able to take any driver seriously. He’s just letting them all down. 

As he overtook me the driver waved apologetically.  So I guess that’s alright then: it was silly of me to worry in the first place when he nearly took me out because he’s a nice man and can smile?

Keep Left

I’m wondering whether these signs (Keep Left) are mandatory or simply advisory? Not all traffic islands and bollards seem to have them.

A field of maize

image

Two days ago this was a field of tall green maize stalks with ripe cobs. Harvesting was obviously a quick exercise.

OU04XZA - Mini driver must get in front

Oh, I’m sorry, you are obviously a very important person.  Did I hold you up at all?

To be fair this is not the worst overtake by a MGIF driver, but why didn’t she wait until after the pedestrian island/pinch-point where there are two lanes?

Gala Mast Civil Engineering dangerous driving

They aren’t very civil by the evidence in this video: a dangerous overtake, and the driver failed to stop at the stop sign.  This is also a two-for-one video. When I reviewed my rear camera footage I noticed that the driver behind Gala Mast was also a wannabe dangerous overtaker.

#BloodyCyclists riding two abreast and blocking the road ... oh wait?

I love these animals, it’s the second time I’ve seen them out and about. The younger one is the daughter of the elder mare, and she is being trained to carry things on her back and use the road (if I understood the rider correctly).

Incidentally this is the same road, less than one kilometre from wherea timber company has erected unacceptable “safety” notices.
