Bugger, I just carnt handle it anymore!

This is driving me nuts, but why the hell dont people learn to indicate when they make a turn, driving to work this morning I noticed more than 10 cars doing this...

This more than anything really peeves me off....

So whats your gripe with other drivers on the road that drives you nuts everytime you see it!

Thumbs down

People doing 10 km/h less than the posted speed limit in the right hand lane drives me nuts.

That's one of mine as well.

I was actually going to start another thread like this one after bitching about learner drivers on freeways.

This was going to be about people who tow caravans. I believe there should be a course and exam before people are allowed to tow caravans. Make it a condition on the licence.

How many times have you been to scared to overtake one because it is weaving all over the road? Or that they just won't move over?

i really get upset bigtime when people go more than halfway around two lane roundabouts in the outside lane, so many times i have nearly had my passenger doors remodeled when trying to exit a roundabout from the inside lane...

and people who tailgate should be shot - i saw a small flatbed truck (4 tonne?) on the M1 tailgating a VX SS ute very closely, both doing about 130km/h, the truck driver only had 4 other lanes to choose from...and then i saw an XR8 highway patrol car overtake them both even faster, no lights or sirens!!!!!!!!! could not bloody believe it!!!!!

Hear hear laminge.

Chalk up another vote for indicators here. Or should I say more accurately - confirmers, which is how most people seem to use them. As if turning on the indicator when the car's wheels were already turning was supposed to help. Grrr.

yeah people in the right hand lane doing 70 in an 80 is a big one for me. That and pushy bastards that push in when changing lanes and remove my space between myself and the car infront.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

I hate people who cut the middle line when turning right into a side street and having to brake or move over to left because they are on my side of the road.

Any wanker who drives a 4wd gets up my nose.

There should be a seperate licence for the dumb things.
