    Ah, you've adopted the Birmingham amendment to the traffic light laws.

    I suppose our peeves are small beer to the drivers currently stuck in the queues at Suez!

    Used to be amber gamblers, now it's red gamblers. I was crossing the lights at George St heading east at Hanover when an Uber decided the red didn't apply to him and he came flying over the junction coming from Princes St. I was bloody furious as I had a punter in the taxi at the time and had to slamm my breaks on.

    It’s getting that bad that if I am approaching lights that have just changed to green, I am always on the lookout for the late red light runner coming across the junction.

    My wife mumps when I give myself an extra a second or 2 at a junction/lights, and says yeah but it’ll be their fault if there’s a crash’. I agree, but remind her that I’d rather just avoid a crash altogether than have to worry about who’s fault it is whilst getting cut out of a car wreck

    Delivery drivers (DPD, etc)

    I get that for a lot of them they're working to a tight schedule with many drop offs but is there really any need to be driving so fast through residential areas and sitting up other drivers' *****?

    People who park in the drop off/pick up area at the hospital.

    There's a car park within literally the same walking distance but it causes absolute havoc at rush times. Two or three cars take the space of five and it spills right back out onto the road.

    Completely inconsiderate.

    I’ve mentioned previously the folk that put the cone out to reserve their preferred space in my development’s car park. There’s a new annoyance taking up spaces in the car park now. Some guy has taken to putting fitness equipment across several parking spaces and doing a workout there for an hour at a time. Take it to the communal grass area or the park 2 mins away, mate and let me park there.

    Can't say I've ever noticed that.

    I'll now have to go for a wee drive in the car to see if I can spot anybody doing it...

    There are some roads where you can see how it happens (i.e. where 'straight on' takes you on to a different road but the road you're on curves right (poor road markings don't help here), and I think some folk just err on the side of caution if they're unsure. Doesn't do any harm, but totally unnecessary at the same time.

    General roundabout etiquette at the roundabout in Carnwath. The general trend seems to be to wait until you’re just about hitting before indicating you’re turning left.

    You must have noticed it over here? It's the law if you're on a signed priority road that curves to the left or right at junctions.

    Or indicate on a piece of road where you can only go one direction, e.g. going from Sth Charlotte St to Lothian Rd, no need to indicate right and then left as you can only go that way.

    To be fair, I often do similar. I'm not indicating for other drivers, but for pedestrians who may well not know the lane markings and therefore the way I am planning to go.

    Yes, a peeve of mine is when I'm out walking and drivers not indicating. Many drivers forget you indicate to let other road users know your intentions. Pedestrians are road users.

    Do you really think my wife let me drive when I was in Germany?


    Oh that's so touchingly naive.

    A lot of that behaviour is force of habit. I've seen myself hitting the indiciator coming out of the drive, I stay in a quiet cul-de-sac

    Agree with this. Also, I've noticed a new trend of runners running on the road when there's a pavement available. Bizarre.

    I just got a new Kia Sportage and it has this lane thing that if you drift the car corrects it self, anyone know if you can turn this off, very annoying so it is.

    See my post further up this thread. If it is anything like the Rio and C’eed you have to turn it off at the start of each journey. On the C’eed there’s a button on the panel between the dashboard and drivers door with a car in between two lanes. If there’s something similar in your car press that. It is a faff and a half in a Rio to do the same thing.

    Edit: this is the button you want

    To the driver of the van with Secom on the side who harassed me and my family in a 20mph limit road near Tesco in Corstorphine recently: I'm stil looking for you. And when I find you you're getting a slap. Ye ken?

    That wasn’t hard to find, now back to swerving all over the road again. Thanks.

    Having to deal with car salesmen. I am yet to encounter a decent one. I know its their job to get you to buy something so will basically say anything, but I have yet to find one who makes me think that the only reason they are doing that job is that they couldn't get another one due to sheer incompetence.

    The last time I went to a Car Showroom, we were immediately approached by a Salesman and he started the usual sales babble.

    I cut him off half way through a sentence by saying "That's really fascinating, but if we have any questions, I'll give you a shout".

    He went off in the huff... and we bought the car we'd went in to look at from one of his colleagues.

    I've certainly came across salesman that make me walk of the courtyard or out the sofa shop. I can't put my finger on what character trait it is but if there was a group of friends, the salesman I've encountered will be the dick that has seen and done everything before you.
    The best salesman I've encountered was a guy called Eddie that worked with West End Skoda. He reminded me a little of Gil Gunderson from The Simpsons. No pressure whatsoever, appeared to operate with honesty and it was a pleasure doing business with him.
