Roads are bad

I have to drive a fair bit and Iíve had some really bad experiences over the past weeks.

I think whatís going on is that people are walking, riding and driving like they donít expect to encounter anything else on the road. In the country lanes around me:

Pedestrians with their kids, in the road, where the roads are national speed limit.
Cyclists just pulling out from junctions. Riding in groups across both lanes.
Cars going very fast, chavs playing games, people cutting cross lanes (racing line), lots of cars driving like they are on a go kart track.

Have you seen tiktok (you may need to rinse your eyes after), Iíve seen videos of cars doing 160+ on U.K. motorways.

I donít want to sound like a miserable old git, Iím not even that old, but some of these were serious. I was doing 50 and a half arse nearly AMG was sat 2 foot over the white line doing 70-80 on a backroad almost clipping my nose. Thatís nightmare fuel...

I think the thing that most suprises me is that 1 in 5 cars seems to be police

Edit: sorry didnít mean police driving badly, rather that youíd think with so much (relative) police presence people would drive properly
