Yet another one.
Speeders!
It's better to arrive five minutes late in this life than early in the next life.

Do taxi drivers even know where their indicators are?

Or balls, seeing they speed off afterwards, only to get caught at the traffic lights and they're there keep looking in the mirror in case you get out to kick them.

Sitting at traffic lights at night, and the car in front sitting with their foot on the brake pedal blinding me with bright red light, drives me daft!

Oh and getting undertaken annoys me too.

How do you expect people to stay stationary then? Don't say handbrake, that's just for when you park up, and when wanting to attract women only.

 

Is quite annoying lol, should use the handbrake when you're going to be stationary for a while anyway, or you'll hurt the disks.

I sit with my brake lights lit on purpose if some nugget is behind me with fogs on or they are sitting right up my jacksie.
Only in my own car of course.
In my work car I have many more lights at my disposal and they're far more annoying. ;)

What about us auto drivers? We have to sit with our brake lights on. I'm not putting it in park each time I stop - plus the quick flash of the reverse lights as the shifter passes through 'R' would surely confuse or even panic some drivers.

A new pet peeve I have is people with damaged, missing or even folded in wing mirrors! How unsafe - I bet a load of money they don't do a full shoulder check every time they should of checked their mirror if was there to check.

A taxi (in service!) tonight pulled away from the kerbside and nearly straight into me as I passed as he had no drivers side wing mirror and didn't shoulder check his blind spots or what was behind/alongside him. :angry:

Driver is driving without due care.

Next time let him hit you then nail his insurance.
