What got me were the number of idiots who didn't even have lights on, never mind fogs!

Lane discipline is the biggy for me, I think we should just scrap it and move to the US method of overtaking on any side.
Uhm - the ape in the Jag with no lights on at all. Clever!

My pet hate:



It's the root of all driving (or at least a large proportion) in my opinion. It:

1. Slows down the flow of traffic
2. Encourages bumping
3. Indicates that people are not aware of what is going on around them

Why, oh why, do people feel the need to drive everywhere in the outside lane?

I'm joining a dual-carriageway - the outside lane looks nice and I'm turning right in 3 and half miles!

I'm joining a motorway - the middle lane looks cosy - let's dive in there!

I'm going down a two-lane A-road - that pavement looks a bit dangerous - I'll drive in lane 2!

The Plod used to call them CLODs - Centre Lane Only Drivers

I call em ****s

The site I listed above is run by a guy called Derestrictor from Piston Heads. One of his ideas is to use redundant matrix boards to push the point home. Great idea!

Rant over. Calm...

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.

Middle lane hoggers
rear fog light abusers
Roundabout numpties - I work in Skelmersdale (as bad if not worse than MK, also home to Europes 2nd biggest roundabout 'half-mile-isle') and the number of people who can't use the things is astounding.
