This morning a black Honda Civic registration plate was driving like an idiot and deserves to have his licence taken from him, I wish I was a traffic cop especially this morning.

He was behind me and so close I am not sure how he never touched me. The motorway is nose to tail in the morning rush hour and he was cutting out on everyone, lane jumping and taking stupid chances cutting the chevrons etc. Best thing was he never got any further forward by doing this what is the point ?

I just wondered if you can report them to anyone as he needs reporting before he kills someone - that is 2 mornings running he has been at it but what about the mornings I have not seen him looked as though this was how he drove usually idiot!!!!!!!!!!

You know you've spent too much time on the computer when you spill milk and the first thing you think is, 'edit, undo.'

What I hate about modern cars (especially in fog or raining night light) is the now common cost saving method of motor manufacturers only fitting one rear fog light and one rear reversing light.
In bad fog it is not always easily definable whether you are behind one of these or a motor bike(especially if the car in front has a tail-light out as well and how many pre first mot motors have we all seen like that on the motor ways???????)

Ok my rant, a lot already mentioned

Speeders, ok most of us do it at some point but some people take the p*ss, this is especialy true at night where it appears to some people speed limits only apply 6am till 9pm.

People who drive watching 2 inches in front. I like to drive looking far ahead to look for obsticles. If I can see a parked car blocking a lane i will move to another lane well before time. Others must not see the hazord at all and do an emergency brake at the last minutie or just pull across in front of you at the last min.

People who think disabled bays and child bays are for every one.

People who insits on parking on double yellows or on corners.

People who sit right up your as*

4x4 who think because they are big they can do what ever they like, mainly forcing their way in.

People who duck and dive between traffic at stupid speeds and under take, infact do what ever it takes to gain 2 car lenghts.

People who find themselves in the wrong lane so just pull in front of you with no indication.

No indication on roundabouts, and also people who are lost on roundabouts who look like they are turning off then suddendly change directions causing you to slam your brakes on.

Chavs in stupid cars with 1 litre engines who think they are god, and do all of the above idiot things.

Mopeds, bikers know they are vunerable (well most) but mopeds the 16 year olds with L plates think they are invincable. Im a biker and im horrified to see them scooting around in shorts and t-shirts (serious damage if they crash) weaving in and out of traffic, no idea cars cant see them and pulling wheelies every where. I even saw one today who had drawn his number plate on yellow paper.

The people who either want to jump ahead or cant see the signs but get in lane signs on roadworks, they decide it doesnt apply to them so carry on using the lane they always do even though they should be in another lane. They then pull across and look at you like its your fault they got in the wrong lane.

People who know at the end of the dual carriage way they need to be in the dfast lane to go where they want to, so they sit in the fast lane for the entire lenght on the carriage way doing 40mph.

Tourists, I know this is mean but living on the coast in the holidays the roads become choas because they all drive slowly, in the wrong lane and never indicate. In fact they do most of the abve because they are lost. Me if im lost i stick with a decsioin untill it is safe to turn around or cahnge lane, most seem to just do something reckless to change lanes then do something reckless again because they now think they should be back in the lane they were just in.

Ok finished sorry

Got to agree with all of that Mr. Sleepdeprived!

I drive a Luton bodied Sprinter van for work, and it's about as aerodynamic as a house! Overtaking lorries is not fun (usually get level with the cab then start to lose out).

People who sit in the middle lane doing 60mph need shooting too!! Can guarentee they will speed up just as I get level with them, making me back off and pull back in behind them, only to find they're back down to 60mph again

The bloke I work with is a classic example of someone who only looks as far ahead as the end of the bonnet. He never seems to notice signs at the side of the road warning of temporary lights ahead, or cars parked in our way up ahead.
He'll wait until he's caught a lorry up on the motorway before deciding he wants to overtake it, then has to slow down to remain behind while waiting for a gap big enough to pull out to appear, then indicates at the last second before pulling out
Have tried suggesting he indicate before he wants to pull out, as someone overtaking will probably let him out (happens 9 out of 10 times for me ) Have even suggested to bosses that they put us through the advanced drivers test, but no such luck.

And then theres.................. Could go on all night
