Another Bison Driving Thread
 
Ok so why the f**k are 4x4's slowing down to snails pace to go over a piece of rope on the road in Jebil Ali Gardens behind Ibn Battuta mall?

FFS it's wound me up so much yesterday that I got some road rage... after a lot of beeping the guy in the Hummer H2 in front of me pulled to the side, and I said "Your in a bloody Hummer and your slowing down to snails pace over a piece of rope" ok drive slower as there are pedestrians around I agree, but snails pace for rope!!

He was like, I don't want to damage the suspension, Hello... Your in a f**king hummer???

It's not just him, this has been happening for a while now, landcruisers, pajeros etc all snailing over this rope, whilst most cars are just driving over them.

I'm not saying let's speed in a pedestrian area with roadworks before you all start jumping on the Bison's a bad driver bandwagon I'm just saying snails pace is definately not neccesary.

Rant Over

Im with you on this one, Bison... Went up that road a couple of weeks ago, heading for the JA Club, and I was going over those damn ropes faster, in my car, than the majority of idiots in their 4x4's... And dont get me started on the speed bumps in Springs!!!

I know the best way to stop an emirati dead in his tracks is to put a slight raise in the tarmac in front of him.

I see people do this all the time in AD in their massive 4x4's with rock-crawling-able suspension.
