Way too many bad drivers,
A poor woman was run over and killed a couple of days ago by a bus driver at the terminus in Nowe Bemowo, in Warsaw. I watched the dashcam footage. She was clearly visible crossing his path, from a distance of at least 30 metres and he just carried on and ran straight over her. Un-effing-believable. The nature of the accidents that occur in Poland are so often completely avoidable, if people just bloody well knew how to drive properly. My husband had driving lessons in both Ireland and Poland. In Ireland he was taught to read the road ahead - you know what I'm talking about Jon, being a Brit. In Poland when he applied that technique, he was SCOLDED by the instructor!! He was told that he should he keep his eyes more or less glued on the bonnet of his car. He was also told to stop checking his mirrors as it would distract him and he'd have an accident!!!!
I remember when learning to drive in Ireland, being taught HOW to watch out for pedestrians. For example, when you're driving in a built up area with cars parked on either side, watch out in particular for vans or higher vehicles which may obstruct your view of the pavement because someone hidden from view by a high vehicle, can step out quite suddenly, so you watch for feet visible UNDER the higher vehicles as you're driving. After a while it becomes automatic. You're watching all parts of the road at all times. That's how you drive.
