Audi drivers have taken over as the most arrogant drivers on the road...it used to be BMW drivers but now its Audi

People who have these in their cars tend to drive like twats also:

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

And are often twats for having it there when they do not have children in the car as the original idea was to help the emergency services be aware there might be a child to rescue.

But surely it's a character reference about the level of their driving.

lol.... this is such a bad thread but in a funny way....... reason is simply because the names and makes of cars your noticing are the most popular cars on the road.
Therefore because there are so many popular audi's and bmw's etc on the road... the chances are higher that you notice a small handfull of them in proportion of the overall which are bad drivers...



EG for argument sake...... If 10% of overall drivers on the road are chrisburns is a naughty person s.......... and 30% of cars on the road are audi's because they are good cars and 30% are bmw's because they are good cars and 1% are FIAT's because they are crap then its obvious that because 10% of road users are chrisburns is a naughty person s then you will think they are all audi and bmw drivers .....

think about it!

Not convinced. If you think of the Audi as an Auto Underpant Dropping Interface and the other one as a Brash Mobile Watercloset, you'll find an arse hole is never far.

I'm not convinced. Just been cut up on the road today by 2 cars. One was an Audi and the other was a BMW. Guilty as charged

Whether it convinces you both or not its the truth.......

see this: http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/article-2399902/Top-20-biggest-selling-cars-2013.html

you will notice while not the most popular both audi and bmw are still big sellers...and as a percentage share only ford vauxhall and volkswagon have a higher share...

a total of 73,000 bmw's sold this year alone and 84,000 audi's......whereas only 34,000 fiat 9,000 jaguar, 4,000 lexus 17,000 mazda, 28,000 mini's 22,000 renaults... etc etc.........

..doesnt bother me either way but the worst drivers I notice on the road are women

Doesn't hold water I'm afraind.

The sales figures if 2012 (according to the Daily Telegraph were:

Quote from Daily Telegraph
Ford enjoyed market share of 13.79 per cent, with Vauxhall in second at 11.36 per cent despite selling 2.6 per cent fewer cars than in 2011. Volkswagen was third overall with 8.96 per cent market share, with BMW and Audi in fourth and fifth (6.24 and 6.05% respectively).


So if your theory is correct, people should see twice as many bad Ford drivers as bad BMW drivers. Ford, Vauxhall and Volswagen drivers should make up 34% of the bad drivers compared to 12% for BMW and Audi ... about 3 times as many.

Thats exactly right.. and I do......the point i was trying to make wasnt about bmw's and audi's per-say it was about the thread in relation to the figures if that makes sense..

plus I did mention those in my other post

It would be interesting to see a breakdown of the figures because bmw and audi as far as im aware dont make vans and trucks etc but both ford and vauxhall do.... so their market share might include that figure..

How many times has someone complained about a white van driver.....?

Those are probably either ford transits or vauxhall's.....

Chances are people just remember the bmw's and audi's more but if you break it down without putting emotion into it then chances are statistically you will notice more fiesta, focus , astra , vectra and white van men bad drivers........... it's just you pick out the occasions where a bmw cuts you up or an audi and that sticks in your head more than a white van or astra.....
