Forgive me if this has already been said - but 29 pages to wade through - I do have another life!!!

Anyways - i HATE / DETEST / CAN'T STAND / ABHOR / oh and did I mention THINK ANYONE WHO DOES THIS IS A MORON - people who see a lane is closed or merging and insist on blasting down full speed right to the merge point before suddenly deciding that the lane closure applies to them so they better cut in front of all those people who have had the courtesy to merge in good time to keep the traffic flowing - PILLOCKS the lot of you!!!

I spose you could say this is my pet hate.

Generally the courtesy thing gets my goat - whhy is it so bloody difficult to say thanks mate if someone lets you in??? Why is it impossible to allow someone to pull out in front of you - it might add a nanosecond to your journey time but hey - you might have two others let you in when it gets busy!!!

Just think of others more on the road.

Right - I'm getting down off this high horse!

I live in London. Nuff said I think.

1.Chavs in novas / scooters.
2.4 x 4 school run buses.
3.Mini roundabouts, why bother? The one at the end of my road serves no purpose. Most mornings it's solid. It's always solid, no one indicates so you have a choice of wait or risk it and when you do pull out, the car to your left will beep and gesture as if you've cut them up?
4.Black cabs . if they own the roads then repair them why not?
5.Lack of road repairs. I drive a Clio it don't like foot deep potholes.

OK, how about idiots who insist on using their mobile phones at the wheel without a headset on! On numerous occasions recently idiots who are obviously too drawn into their conversations have nearly crashed into me!!

I own a bluetooth headset which i always have on in the car. If i'm chatting and the conversation turns too in-depth, i have to pull over to continue the convo. There is no way IMHO that you can drive safely and hold a conversation whilst holding a phone in your hand, like i say sometimes i have trouble even wearing a headset!

Really winds me up

All the idiots who think they can park on the double yellows at the traffic lights at the end of my street, maybe they think it's OK because it's a side street and they're just nipping to the shop.

What a pain when you go to turn into the street and have to stop half on the main road because you can't get in. then nearly have someone run into your a**e and give you a load of abuse, because they were too close to you in the first place and didn't expect you to stop.

Oh, and all the other idiots who, coming the other way see the car parked illegally but still insist on coming right up to the lights and stopping parrallel to it so no-one can get past.

How did these muppets get their licences

Double Yellows are there for a reason - You know who you are!
