Heoga40 Posted November 13, 2012 Report Share Posted November 13, 2012 I was down in Lerwick today and i was shocked by the poor standard of driving in the isles the first incident took place in the morning .I was heading south past Petta Water when i noticed a large white van right behind me it stayed there until we had passed the half way house then overtook me it was a council van .The van carried on until it came up behind a small van at Girlsta where it overtook the van in to on coming traffic causing both the van it was overtaking and the car heading north to break to allow it in .The silly thing is that it did not get him anywhere because when i was coming down past Sutherlands he was only three cars in front of me . I was doing 60 mph so he must have been doing about 70 when he passed me i think I'n right in saying the van should not be doing more then 50 . The second indecent took place in the afternoon at Tingwall a taxi overtook a truck round the outside of a corner in to on coming traffic causing the truck and the two cars heading north to break .It's idiots like this who cause accidents and the sad thing is that it is usually the other person that comes of worst and never the idiot that caused the accident in the first place .It's just a pity i didn't get there numbers because i would have had no trouble giving them to the Police .
