Ok, I'll throw in another pet hate - roundabouts or more specifically the missuse of them.
I work in Roundabout Land (Milton Keynes) and generally most people can use them properly but, as L2O will confirm, some morons in MK just don't have a clue and strangely most are BMW drivers! They approach, turn and exit all without a single flash of the indicator and the rest of us just have to brake hard.
But the latest 'craze' in Milton Keynes is even worse - The idea is to charge upto a roundabout at about 50mph (if you are going straight on), don't look right at any cost, and just drive across the roundabout at 50. If anyone dares to sound their horn because you nearly t-boned them, just do the two fingered wave because they should realise that you have a far superior driving ability noticeable by the fact you are driving either a saxo or a rusty old escort.
This used to be something you would see in MK about once every six months but now it's every couple of months. A few years ago in MK a group of pensioners in one car were killed by this type of stupidity but it seems to have had no effect on some people.
