I have not seen one of these discussion on here so I thought I would start one for a bit of fun.

Here is a chance to have a whinge about other drivers, and if you fit a catagory do something about it for instance my whinge at the moment is drivers who drive around with defective headlights so if you are one of these drivers make it a priority to fix that headlight


I am by no means perfect


Hope you get the jist so start posting your whinges and lets see what really p***** people off

Mis aligned headlights and people who dont dip their lights when your heading towards them as well as ones you have just overtaken.

A good thread si952! My current whinge are drivers wholeave their front fog lights on all the time. They wouldn't do the same with their rear fog lights would they as that's really a dork thing to be seen to do. So why the front?
It's illegal to use any fog light whether front or rearunless your driving in fog or falling snow (note, NOT rain) where the visibility is reduced to 100 mtrs or less. That alsomeans they MUST be used in conjunction with dipped headlights. If you can see further than 100 mtrs, turn thefog lightsoff!!And if the visibility is that bad then get the hell away from my back bumper as the stopping distances and reaction times will be much slower.Oh yes, and it is also illegal to dazzle other drivers with badly aligned foglights.
That's not such a difficult concept is it? If drivers don't understand such basic legal lighting requirements and don't know what that warning light on the dashboard is for then stop driving untilthey do!

That feels better

I hate drivers who accelerate hard between speed bumps,and show off their total ignorance regarding car consideration.
Flying over some pretty serious speed bumps like they didn't exist.
I keep willing them to break springs at exactly the right time.

Another one from me:

Picture the roundabout on a duel carriageway, somewhere like Milton Keynes. I get really p****d off with the guy who is in the left lane when I am in the right lane who instead of sticking to the outside of the roundabout decides to take the shortest route cutting across the front of my car.

This one takes the biscuit.
15.00hrs today, busy A road, lady talking on phone in right hand, trimming her hair with SCISSORS in left hand using rear view mirror as aid, female passenger steering while applying lipstick using sunvisor vanity mirror.
Could not believe what was going on, if I'd had a video camera on board would have had wife record it and copy given to Plod

You do realise that you can condense all the above irritating points into one simple phrase? ......

Audi drivers

Totally agree with you there Phil...4 hours on the M1 this morning with light rain, staring at people's fog lights, front and back. You flash at them, but they don't get it!!! Grrr!

Oh, but isn't Milton Keynes just one big go kart track?

I know I said it as a joke, but 9 times out of 10 it IS an Audi driver. They are always tailgating, desperate to get past at any opportunity.
