Where a slip road joins the main carriageway there are dotted lines telling you it is a give way. I hate it when people just push their way on expecting you to brake or move over even if there is other traffic.

1. Those who hog motorway middle lanes
2. Anyone who doesn't have the ability to understand roundabouts & what lane they should be in for their exit
3. Failing to acknowledge when you have given way to someone or let them out.

Roundabout Retards I call them.  They crawl up to it, slam the brakes on and THEN look for a gap.  And naturally, 5 opportunities a bus could have pulled into pass by before said retards muster up any gumption to press the accelerator.

It's like the Walking Dead disease has infected British motorists.  Absolutely no sense of urgency or consideration for anyone else.  Yeah I'll sit here at 60 in the outside lane forever, just because - my road, my speed, f'ck everyone else.

 :signLOL: this thred has made my day :jumpmove: :jumpmove: :jumpmove: :jumpmove:

I have driven trucks all over europe for years now and also i have worked for the highways agency for 7 years working all over the UK. I drive a car and also ride motorbikes and cycles.

From what i have seen over this time is that its not down to the mode of transport these people are useing but down to the people themselves causing the problems. A f**kwit in a car is still a f**kwit on a bike. MOSTLY...

The one true thing i have noticed is anyone in a BMW/MERC that didnt get the upgraded lights that have indicators. Like WTF you spend 50k+ on a brand new car get all your added extras but dont have the money for the indicators thats my main pet peeve.

I think number 2 is mainly Australians "crikey a roundabout what'll we do"
