Yahoo news: Elderly lady leaves car, thanks P-plater for ‘not driving like a bloody hoon’

 

This article perfectly highlights one of the major problems with the attitudes of Australian drivers. Apparently speeding is so dangerous that this old woman felt the need to commend a p-plater for not doing it, but considers it perfectly safe to get out of her own car in the middle of a busy intersection to do so.

Not only does this highlight the ridiculous double standard that exists in the minds of many drivers, but it also reflects the way that new drivers are often victimised and unfairly targeted on our roads.
