Whilst I was in work earlier in the week I was unfortunately able to overhear a very clear and audible conversation about the supreme selfish idiocy of people and their reveling within said selfish idiocy.
If you have your licence suspended, then it is highly advisable that you do not drive your car. It has been suspended for a reason and if you think that you are above that, you’re kind of an asshole.
There’s very few reasons as to why someone should be speeding, let alone on a suspended provisional licence in a school zone, and thinking that you might be able to get away with it is not an acceptable answer. It never is an acceptable answer.
If you want to increase your chances of being in an accident, then be my guest. Just don’t increase the risk for anyone else because you’re too unable to see anything beyond your own nose.
There are too many people in Australia who don’t seem to understand what driving is, what it entails and what responsibilities you have to take every time you get behind a steering wheel. You are not just taking a risk with your life. If you think that being a reckless idiot is absolutely acceptable and that there’s nothing wrong with driving with a suspended license, then you need to go back and learn how to drive, or do everyone a favour and put the car away and take public transport instead. The roads are not just for one person. They’re for everyone and that’s what a lot of people don’t want to acknowledge.
I’ve been in a car accident before. The car I was in was stopped in some very light traffic waiting for lights to change and a person in front of us was doing an illegal u-turn. There was nowhere for the car I was in to go. The person doing the u-turn hit the car because they thought that this was perfectly acceptable behaviour. They weren’t going at any speed that could be considered fast, but doing it in traffic whilst not paying attention to what they were actually doing whilst being close to traffic lights in a spot where you can’t do a u-turn tells me that they didn’t care because they thought that their crappy behaviour is above the law.
There’s always a push to get more cars off the road and, despite my grievances with how the public transport in Sydney operates, I do think that there should be less cars on the road simply because there would hopefully be less people who don’t know how to drive on the road. There are so many accidents that can be avoided but still happen just because people don’t know what driving is, don’t seem to feel a need to pay attention to what they’re doing, or don’t think that speeding in a school zone on a suspended provisional license is something that shouldn’t be done.
You don’t deserve to drive if you refuse to understand that you’re driving a car and that there’s rules that need to be followed.
