Follow on from this,
I was so annoyed at monday nights occurance that i decided to get my headlight alignment checked,
I had bought thd black ford units from a seller on ebay and thought the alignment would have been good.
But no, he said the alignment was way off "all the way up and facing the right, both shining towards oncoming traffic"


My new peeve
Aligment cost me 25 euros
Just to turn an allen key in my lights, rip off republic


Theres a garage near me that charges £80 to adjust your headights

Thats crazy money just to adjust the light that you already have.
Cost me 80pounds for the headlight lol almost cheaper to replace a headlight than align it.

Cars that have the fog light on when they are turning corners. What is the point?? What is it meant to light up?? why do car manufactures feel that we need this. Glad ford have not jumped on the band wagon.

And roundabouts why can people not indicate or get in the right lands its not hard to understand

I hate when you see people (mostly young women) crossing the road with a buggy and jist pushing the buggy half into the road before thinking to look to see if theres a car coming. Seen a car infront of me today physically have to swerve out of the way of this stupid woman doing that today

One of my biggest pet peeves is when there's slow traffic in the left lanes on the m'way, so you can be in the right hand lane at 70 without a problem. Then you get one idiot coming up behind you, flashing his lights and honking his horn because I'm not willing to do 100+mph, even though I've got as much of a right to be in that lane as I'm overtaking. Then as soon as I complete my overtake and move back in (unless they undertake me as soon as they're a millimetre past the car behind) they fly past, brake heavily to avoid the next car and the whole cycle repeats.

I also don't like people who you let out only to not say thank you, or those people who think that sticking their hand out of the window means that they're allowed to cut anyone up.
Also people who play their music so loud that you can hear it over your own.

Corsa drivers in general.

Why do they all seem to think everyone wants to race them?

Lmao, I had one of these yesterday while i was on the bike going round an oval shaped roundabout - I think he/she was about to try and race me until they realised that i was almost horizontal and going much faster than them. I was within the speed limit too just before anyone questions that.

Oh and Clio drivers too, and Audi drivers in the third lane of a motorway firm in the belief that it's their personal lane to do with as they please.
