    People who wait until they are already turning before putting their indicator on 🤬

    There has been a real increase in absolute wideos since the change in the highway code.

    I'm predominantly a pedestrian when out and about so appreciate anything to keep us safer but it's all about common sense. A tightening up of the highway code to protect pedestrians at junctions seems to have become a green light for idiots and wannabe hard men strolling across roads all over the shop either desperate for confrontation or giving you the patronising smile.
    When the lights turn to green and a pedestrian runs right across you from an angle, I've pretty much given up driving since getting a bus pass,will probably find something else to moan about!😂

    Idiots who cut corners when turning right, had to break sharply this morning when approaching the junction to avoid my front end being hit. Remonstrated with the erse who thought he was some kind of hard man by telling me he would do me! Blew him a kiss and told him if he fights as well as he drives he’ll need help…..

    Anyone who does a dangerous maneuver and then gets sarky/angry with you when you remonstrate with them, they actually think they were in the right to be a dick on the road.

    I live right next to a junction in my street. I have to drive up to the junction at 5mph now because of the number of idiots who cut the corner, usually going far too fast as well.

    If you can't get your car round a corner from the appropriate place, maybe try more lessons, or buying a smaller car. Infuriating and all to save half a second. There'll be an accident there in no time.

    Totally!! The amount of people that have come around the corner with half their car on my side of the road is incredible...obviously I get a filthy look as clearly it's always my fault.

    This is the bit that gets me.

    Few weeks ago I was driving back from Manchester. Usually I cut off at Abington and go the Biggar road, but this was mid afternoon and the sun was out so I decided to take the Moffat road. Climbing out of Moffat just before the Beeftub the road gets really narrow with an old bridge over a tight bend. I was on this bridge when coming towards me round the corner appeared an Audi, driving far too fast for the sharp bend, and on my side of the road. How he missed me I'll never know. I had to stop afterwards as I was shaking so much.

    Roadworks on Glasgow Road heading west, nightmare, digging at the B&M at Maybury but tailbacks to Western cross at Murrayfield.

    Not a peeve more of a WTF. Slowing down for a right turn at a red light the car behind broke into oncoming lane and did the right turn gambling on no amber flyers moving on their light. No visibility at all of those on that right turn.

    There's a car that parks just after the corner of the junction going into my street. It necessitates turning right, sharply, on to the wrong side of the road and hoping there's no one coming the other way.

    Someone will crash one day. Probably two moving cars whilst leaving this problem car unscathed!

    I just saw a learner, followed by 3 others cars in excess of 200 yards into 1 way roadworks the wrong way!
    There is a Road Closed sign and a couple of No Entry signs at the part where the road goes from 2 way to 1 way. I am still trying to figure out how stupid you can be and still get a licence in the West Midlands.

    People who can't judge how much room they've got on their passenger side. I was driving behind someone at lunchtime who was half on the wrong side of the road to 'avoid' the bike lane bollards. I know the bollards are a bit annoying but there was seriously loads of space.

    Selfish drivers who make things more difficult and dangerous for others, for no reason at all.

    I was coming off the M8 into Livingston this evening, there’s another car ahead of me on the slip road to join the dual carriageway. There’s 2 cars on the dual carriageway, with a decent gap to another car behind them.

    the car in front of me positions them self to drop into the gap, matching their speed and spacing, I back off to move out behind the car at the back. Then that prick decides to accelerate hard to stop the car in front of me getting out ahead of him, forcing them to brake hard and avoid him, moving out behind. Idiot then moves out to the outside lane and shoots off anyway.

    what was the point, apart from proving you’re an ********. Nothing to gain, and plenty to lose for multiple people, behaviour like that just baffles (and infuriates) me
