    Similarly, when you are trying to overtake someone on a dual carriageway, A90 to Aberdeen particularly, the car you are trying to overtake speeds up so that you have to accelerate more and exceed the legal limit, in order to make the pass but as soon as you have passed them they slow down again.
    That's what happened in my post above. Weirdos.

    And the ones who canít maintain a steady speed.

    My wifeís family all stay in Perth and Dundee, so weíre up and down fairly often. Itís crazy the number of times Iíve overtaken another vehicle as Iím doing 70, a few minutes later they go past me as Iím still doing 70, then a few minutes later Iím overtaking them again, still doing 70, repeat several times on the journey.

    Itís really noticeable if you using cruise control. You really see the number of cars constantly yo-yoing.

    It's been done to death on here but people not using the whole road when loosing a lane further on, a bit of courteous driving would get everyone where they were going quicker. It's in the ****ing Highway Code people!

    middle lane huggers.

    On my way back from Liverpool on the M6 I am in the inside lane and there are lorries 150m ahead. I check mirrors and there is a Range Rover also about 150m behind, in the middle lane. I signal and move out and get blasts of headlights from the driver of the Range Rover. He comes up to my tail as I am beside the rear of the first lorry before he moves over to the outside (third) lane and holds his hand to the horn. WTF was wrong with him, there was plenty room and I was going just below 70mph.

    Rant over.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Probably the fact he was driving a range rover. It seems that these vehicles have been reserved especially for self important twats.

    It seems that a massive part of the driving population have no idea how to drive properly on a motorway.

    Back to this time of the year when commuting on my motorbike in the dark and faced with oncoming cyclists with the brightest lights they can find flashing constantly.

    What is it with these flashing lights, I donít understand them, they blind me and I find it difficult to see properly after theyíve passed.

    Iíve started flashing my lights back at them, probably doesnít help much but will give them an idea of how ridiculous it is.

    Those ultra bright LED headlights that seem to be increasingly popular.

    They must be great if you are behind the wheel, not so great for any poor ******* driving towards you as they are totally blinded. Some of them are worse than driving towards someone with their high beams on.

    Nobody needs a Range Rover. Especially not in town.
    And particularly not a white one.

    Been noticing this as well. They're also on the new model Lothian Buses.

    Also people who have their headlights out of alignment which means either one or both blind you as they're set far too high and illegal.

    When a 97 year old codger pulls out in front of you in his Landrover from his driveway. Amazingly the police were at the scene within seconds.

    Or folk who drive with a knackered driverís side headlamp. In really dark conditions it looks like an approaching motor cycle.

    Great if itís your car though the difference is amazing over old halogens.

    Presumably the police were in front of and behind the codger

    Most common one for me just now is the traffic lights where one of the vehicles ahead is turning right.
    Lots of junctions in the country have been modified from 2 lane both way to one lane for safety reasons, which Iím all for, and most have had some modification which allows, even if not specifically marked, a space which if taken, allows the rest of the traffic to flow. Even the tightest ones if offside to offside turning is used can allow traffic to flow.
    So why do so many nutters just sit with their right indicator on and not move forward?
    I canít answer the question coz my answer would probably get me banned!
    Iíve seen myself sit thru 3 light sequences because they donít move forward and itís so frustrating!
    Itís the most selfish/stupid/ bad driver thing Iím seeing umpteen times everyday in Edinburgh.
    Grinds my gears lol

    Cars turning left or right at a junction who block the road for those travelling straight on although there's still 5m room for them to move forward.
    Was scrolling back and found this post. Pretty much what I said, but I was in full rant mode lol

    People who pull up at lights behind the car on the right( who's indicating ) and when the lights change they realise they're in the wrong lane and then attempt to pull into the left lane because they finally see the car in front has it's right indicator on, useless gets.

    People who are waiting to pull out at a junction turning left or right but.not Iactually looking or paying attention both ways. As you approach you slow down giving them plenty of time to pull out, they donít move, you give them a flash of your lights, they donít move, you then give up and you pass them see that they arenít even paying attention.

    People sat at lights in the right lane who only put their indicator on to turn right after a car wanting to drive straight on has pulled up behind them.

    Yesterday I was the one wanting to turn right at a T junction, car from the left was indicating to turn right into the road I was exiting from but left room for me to go first, car from the right indicating to park in a space just past the car on the left. It was like a Mexican standoff, who moves first.


    Answer was me.
