Powered by fairy dust. Driven by Jabba the Hut. Every time.
Kia or Honda (not type r) drivers in Galloway who feel the need to slam the brakes on for every corner, crawl round and accelerate up to the next corner. Folk in cars (non-specific) who drive so close to the rear of my car that all I can see in the rear view mirror is the very top of your bonnet, don’t take offence if I squirt water from my water bottle out the window or sunroof onto your windscreen, if you weren’t that close it wouldn’t hit you.Posted 4 years agoneilsonwheelsMember
Old dears in Honda Jazz’s were the bane of my life when I was lorry driving for a living. They would do 40 everywhere and I mean everywhere. 40 in a 60, 40 in a 30 and they might push it to 45 up a motorway. 👿
The positioning of the Satnav on the windscreen is always a good indication as to the quality of the driver I find.
My girlfriends cousin is a fine example of this. She drives a Fiat 500 which is more fashion accessory than car. Anyways the thing is not blessed with he biggest windscreen and she feels fit to stick the satnav slap bang in the middle of it blocking out a good 50% of her vision. You could loose a whole peloton in the blind spot. 😯Posted 4 years agoallthegearMember
Actually, the Suzuki Swift is surprisingly err swift….
The ones that annoy me are those that seem to think their position in a line of traffic is some sort of “right” and get uppity when I overtake and pull in in front of them. Usually involves trying to stop me pulling in and then flashing their lights. Usually driving something “mature” like an A4 or a Honda Accord etc…

I’m generally chilled about driver behaviour – most of it is men overcompensating for something. What really annoys me, though, is people who don’t say thank you when I let them through a narrow bit or something.
I’ve found there’s a strong inverse relationship between the size of the car and the likelihood of saying thank-you. I’m always pleasantly surprised when SUV drivers do.Posted 4 years ago
^ – yep, shouldn’t be allowed on the road unless you have a clear line of vision, you can get prosecuted for having a sunstrip on your windscreen so i can’t understand in the eyes of the law why you are allowed to drive with a niqab obscuring your vision, it has nothing to do with an adherence to the islamic faith and has no grounding in the Koran.Posted 4 years ago
those niqabs with the built in mesh over the eyes should be illegal.
There’s a beggar at the souq in Manama (Bahrain). I would never give her money, despite knowing how older single women can be treated there, because I couldn’t see her face. You could argue that that’s religion/race-ist, but I believe it’s a basic instinct – anything covering the face dehumanises the wearer to others.Posted 4 years ago
The ones that when it’s congested on the motorway, come right up behind you, then veer towards the central reservation and look round as if they are planning to try and squeeze through.Posted 4 years ago
Anyone who hogs the middle lane.
People who think it’s acceptable to join a motorway at 50mph, then speed up to 70 anyway.
People who start slowing down for the motorway exit at the 1 mile marker.
Common sense perhaps? :wink:: .
At the risk of appearing flippant this is just for you…. a Blue Peter moment if you’ll humour me: take an old pillow case and cut a 10 – 15mm rectangle out it, slip it on your head and tell me if it obscures you peripheral vision in any way, move your head to the left and right – does it make a difference?.
My mate is married to a girl from the Yemen (he converted to islam) and when she returns home she refuses to wear the niqab, she’s been attacked both physically and verbally by people she grew up with so she’s recently made the decision not to return to the country as in her words “women/girls are considered second class,worthless”.Posted 4 years agofreeagentMember
I pulled into the local Supermarket carpark a few weeks back and noticed a big black 4-Door Bentley parked in a disabled space.
I muttered something under my breath about lazy bast**ds parking in a disabled space and then thought, ‘Oh they might have a disabled kid or something so fair enough’
I parked up and walked over to the shop, when I got to the door I noticed an old boy with a walking stick hanging onto the handrail, his knees were shaking like a shitting dog, and he could hardly walk.
I stopped for a minute to watch where he was heading…
No prizes for guessing which 500bhp monster he was driving home…Posted 4 years agorichmtbSubscriber
Drivers with hats.
They’re always shit. Doesn’t matter what kind of hat, age, gender.
Is very true
Also old Toyotas – used to be Carina’s its probably Avensis’ now. Model doesn’t matter but its always a Toyota. Running on its bump stops at the rear as its chronically overloaded. Normally has between 4 and 7 unrestrained children on the back seats too. AvoidPosted 4 years agomarcus7Member
The bloke (its always a bloke) who sits half an inch off your bumper craning his neck too see if he can overtake ALL THE TIME… On my commute home especially it is essentially impossible to overtake unless you have blue flashing lights, 2 miles of traffic moving at around 30 mph which is good enough for me, yet there is very often a plank behind me looking for an overtaking opportunity!Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
Drivers with hats.
I’ve thought this for a while now actually. You’re usually going to have a hard time with anyone who thinks “I’m about to get into a sealed metal box… better cover up my head” unless they’re The Stig.
Old blokes with flat caps, young Asian women in religious paraphernalia, teenage boys in hoodies and baseball caps, all shining examples of some the worst driving I’ve ever seen outside of a minicab.Posted 4 years ago
