What is bad driving?

Which of these motoring habits irritate you the most? (Choose up to 3)

  • Permanent occupation of the outside lane on the motorway because the speedo says 70

  • Sitting in the outer lane of a dual cariageway at 60 because it's an A road

  • Slowing down to a crawl at roundabouts when nobody is coming

  • Slowing down to a crawl at a green light because it may change to red

  • Leaving a 100m gap in front in a queue of crawling traffic

  • Nudging 1m from cones into merging traffic that had already politely merged 200m back

  • Pulling out from a junction in front of traffic, when there is a large gap further back

  • Slowing down on a main road to wave someone out when there is nobody behind

  • Reducing speed to 5 MPH because the scene of the accident causing the jam is too interesting to miss

  • Stopping on the hard shoulder for a wee or to get a twix from the boot

If we did that, everyone would be driving in either the inside or outside lanes.

I tend to set my cruise control at 58mph on the motorway and find my stress levels greatly reduced as I pootle along. No tailgating. No undertaking. No cutting up.
Fine in the inside lane...

How about the “40 F**ker”
Does 40mph everywhere thinking he/she is being safe.
You follow him/her for miles trying to find a safe overtake. When you get to the village the moron steams through at 40 ignoring the 30 then it takes you another 10 miles to catch/try to pass again.

Also the muppets that tailgate you through 30/40’s as if you’re holding them up, then when the limit opens up snd you boot it they’re nowhere to be seen!!

The common anoyance I come across is trucks overtaking in order to go 1 or 2mph quicker, andleading to tailbacks of frustrated commuters driving on each other’s bumpers.
Prohibition of truck overtaking is quite common in Europe; beginning to be used in U.K.
I cannot understand the mentality that considers trying to overtake something travelling 2 m.p.h. slower and taking nearly 10 minutes to do it is O.K.

Never mind what everyone else is doing.

They may be having a heart attack or a stroke, be under the influence of drink or even drugs, legal or otherwise. They may have less than optimal eyesight or hearing. They may be a new driver or just be lacking in confidence. They may have passed their test in another country by driving 100yards in a straight line or they may not have a licence at all. Or they may be just a selfish arrogant impatient b@$tard for whom the rules don't apply.

Just keep calm, try to obey the rules of the road and above all, make allowances.

There are no perfect drivers.
