Have I Discovered Perth’s Most Inconsiderate Driver?

I reckon I might have. Going home from work on Friday night I had one guy in his new Mini Cooper, copper colour, cut in just before the traffic lights on Loftus Street. I hate this as he should wait in line like the rest of us. What made it worse was that he was the last car to get through the lights and I had to wait about another 2 ½ minutes.

He then shot straight across the road to the petrol station, went past the “Do Not Enter” sign without a second thought, got what he wanted from the servo, jumped on his mobile phone, didn’t put his seatbelt on, and took off just in front of me as I finally got my turn with the traffic light.

This guy didn’t bother to use his blinker too much, weaved in and out of the traffic and was traveling close to twice the speed limit – while still on his mobile. He changed lanes in the middle of an intersection with traffic lights and when he did indicate to change lanes it was over a solid white line. His number plate started with 1BXC and ended with, no, I shouldn’t say. Let’s just say that the last three parts of his seven digit alphanumeric plate is 752. That shouldn’t give it away. Idiot has no right to be on the road.

Unfortunately, there are more and more of them out there. I suppose he would have resorted to 'road rage' if he had caused an accident.
