Baby on Board

"Baby on Board": so what? What difference does it make? The irritating point is the presumption that people normally drive recklessly unless informed that a baby is on board. People rarely alter their attitude when armed with such information. I don't.

My driving technique doesn't change. I don't get better or worse. I have a consistent attitude. Whether it's excellent, good or downright poor, it doesn't change depending on circumstances.

Those drivers with a real rubbish attitude are also consistent.

Consistently bad

They often have "attitude" and generally don't care about anything or anybody. Usually, but not always, not very bright. Just nasty.

Signs like the "Baby on Board" don't make any difference.

Just like the pathetic types that drive into disabled places at supermarkets or any communal place with these specially reserved places. Disabled people (with the appropriate valid documentation, of course) can't all escape totally here: some are just inconsiderate, stupid or blind as the absolute right to park anywhere seems to translate to parking dangerously or being an obstruction. Or creating blind-spot hazards at junctions

A real pain

Those making the signs make the money since the sign itself and the information it conveys are a total irrelevance.
