    Angry Travelling blues

    Just a quick thought on this, what irritates you the most on UK roads at the moment? As part of my job I travel extensively on the motorways and my top 3 are as follows:

    3.) People who don't use lights in poor / nearly dark conditions. Are people actually aware that lights are not just to see with but also to be seen by?

    2.) Queue jumpers. People that travel as far as possible down the motorway in lane 3, only to cut across 3 lanes of traffic & shove into the front of the queue exiting the motorway - in an effort to save themselves 30 seconds.

    1.) Middle lane hoggers. Especially at this time of year when everyone is migrating to the South West coast, holidaymakers seem to think that tootling along at 50mph in the middle lane is fine, despite there being no-one to their left. The left lane is for all vehicles, not just for trucks & caravans!

    Anyway, rant over, my top 3.

    As much as 30 secs ? more like 5 LMAO yeah, that is annoying.

    But the middle lane hoggers are the worst IMO, they are completely oblivious to the presence of other road users. Fortunately I find that the Veccy has quite a good high beam which can normally get their attention and make them move over.

    You end up stuck behind them and the speed differential between you and lane 3 is often too much to allow pulling out safely, you could of course pass on lane 1 .........

    Number 4 to your list could be the lack of indicators. This used to only be the bimmer drivers but now everyone seems to forget they have them.

    Number 5 for me would be the HGV's that pull out at the last min when you are close and have nowhere to go.

    But, the thing which really gets my goat on the mway is tailgaters as it's just so wrong and so dangerous especially with a 3 month pregnant wife and 2.5 year old son on board i'd like to see the same people try and stand that close to me in a supermarket ........

    3. People who just aren't aware of others...

    2. Lorry drivers, who, not their fault, are pressured by timescales, just drive too fast!!

    1. People who do 45 in a 60, then carry on doing 45 when they reach a 30...its usually old people....

    This has happened to me twice recently - the best way to deal with it is to embarrass them, I asked a lad in McD's if he fancied me cos he was standing so close, he went bright red and all deffensive and his mates thought it was hilarious....second time was t'other night when a women in Argos was near enough touching me, so I just said "I really don't want you to stand this close to me luv.." - everyone looked and she went red! - Stupid people - rant over!

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Default

    Fully agree!!

    On a general driving level, may I add the following:-
    1. Drivers who think indicators are optional
    2. Drivers who drive far too slowly
    3. Drivers who take 5 seconds to react to lights changing to green
    4. Drivers who take forever to turn left
    5. Drivers who cannot maintain a constant speed
    6. Drivers who make no effort to park legally/safely
    7. Drivers who have no positional sense/awareness
    8. School runners
    9. Drivers who use front foggies unnecessarily
    10. Drivers who have obviously misaligned headlamps (one points to Mars!)

    That's better !!

    I'm afraid you will all have to put up with this kinda thing for now anyway, it's the effects of Sleeper Bottism.

    Sleeper Bottism is now rife,there are so many automated humans in existance now they are now really visible, these are units that appear human, but have been de-tuned so that they only function to make up numbers, but unfortunately take up earth space and get in the way, should you encounter a bot, the most polite way to greet one is to extend your longest finger and rub it up and down your nose, this way the bot will be happy in the knowledge you noticed it.
