"pet hate on cars"
Voorhees, he's quite annoying on the road.

Bring your Helmet to Castle Coombe son, it has to be done.... me and you out on track.
people whos number plates have been put on squint!
The stupid twat this morning that went into the roundabout on my left then turned right without indicating almost taking the front of my car off. Cock!
And the rudeboy gangsta type in McDonalds who left his **** spread across the table then got up to leave. He sucked his teeth at me when i shouted "is the bin to complex for you". Moron had to walk past the bin on his way to the door. And what's with this walking about with your trousers half down and one hand on your genitals. They aren't going to fall off!
but they may fall out if his pants are that low lol,
nearly couldn`t finish my pint when someone came in the pub with the crotch of his jeans in the back of his knees..........
i`ll add Gorden Brown (aka Tonys Biacha) to the mix
****** at traffic lights honking horn if i aint quick enough pullin away at green. it aint a race to spin off as soon as they change. had it this afternoon, if my kids werent in car and city was quiter i would be in a cell right now the fukn fat twat !
I've an 11 month old wee boy and why would you push them out first, and then your the worst in the world if you don't stop or where to hit them.
Bars that only sell Fosters, Stella and Carling on tap.
Old people driving / people that cant work out distance / time to travel a certain distance.
Had some old person just pull blind out in front of me - full emergency stop with lights and horn to stop - (and the car behind).
Really winds me up this - especially as he did not even have the decency to put his hand up and acknowledge the mistake.
that will me my dad then do we blame him or the dealer that sold him the car 2 years ago?
People who don't indicate to change lanes in the Rain! It's bad enough in the dry, but at least I can stop!, but in the rain, my ABS is a lifesaver for me on 2 occasions this morning!
Boy racers - People who drive slow (like REALLY SLOW!) - People who dont have a clue where there going, slow down and dont indicate when turning - People on moterbikes who want to drive up my arse(if i was a d*ck could just put my breaks on and watch you fly over my car) - People at lights who try and race me - People who can see your coming but still decide to walk in the middle of the road slow and look at you - People who try getting through tiny gaps when they know they will end up hitting your car - people who drive like knobs on 30zone and do like 80mph - People who just pull out and then start throwing a abuse at you - I hate a few woman drivers and old people nothig against all of them but last few days some of you been taking the piss - Boy racers who want to race each other in there little old punto's corsa's 106 clios etc - the ones at mcdonalds car park who drive around there likes idiots - When you come outside to find some one dented your car - when you just clean your car and it rains or a bird shits on your car - When you get food from a take away tell no one to eat in your car and find food - When your nice enough to pick up drunken friends from town and they are all loud and wont sit still (normal threaten to throw them out) - a manager who always calling your mobile and has left over 10 voice mails in one week - a manager who dont know how to do his job or handle a customer - People who full beam me - People who get pissed off when i overtime them (only when its safe) its a 40zone not 20! - People who just stare at me in my car (cant i have a nice car i work hard thanks) Would carry on but too many lol
Haha sorry i was on a roll was in work and manager just came in and started chatting poo
I followed one of my biggest pet hates this morning.
People who cut right hand bends.
Woman in a Fiesta.
Seriously dangerous around any right hand bend.
Not just straying over the other side of the road by a few inches, I mean right over the other side of the road.
Head-on waiting to happen, and she won't have a clue why...
With specific regard to cars, my pet hate is blatantly under-inflated tyres, or faulty brake lights.
Neither take long to check, but some people wait for the MOT to tell them.
My dog loves the car - he couldn't come up with anything he hates...
People who sit on the brakes at traffic lights especially at night. Just use the f'ing handbrake.
Also, people who creep forward when the lights are still red. Especially the ones who do it and then are slow to pull away.
45mph drivers. I.e. the ones who do 45mph everywhere.
People who brake for EVERY corner no matter how slight. had one today doing 30 in a 60 and braking at every corner/bump/blade of grass sticking out from the verge. Argh!
Fog lights! I've only every have to use my fogs a handful of times every year so why is it some folks need them all the time. And even if it is foggy, turn the rears off when someones behind you.
Another on my list is etiquette when there's a queue for a merge...
I realise there are a couple of schools of thought on this... You could argue that it's better to fill up both lanes as they merge into one, as it keeps the queue itself shorter; I have to say I disagree with this for the most part, as at the same time it makes the time spent in the queue greater.
If people would merge into the one lane as soon as they get the opportunity, the traffic in the single-lane section will move more freely, likely at a steady rate, and everyone gets to where they're going quicker.
People taking the mick in these situations really makes my blood boil - the classic being when there's a lane closure, signs advise people a few hundred yards ahead, so the majority begin to merge and keep moving. Then you get a handful of selfish drivers who think it's much better to hurtle right up the outside of the queue, and force their way in at the cones; then everyone has to stop to let the impatient ones in, making progress even slower.
Be warned, if you try to do that when I'm around you better have blue lights, because otherwise a) If we're at the cones and you're trying to get in, I'm not going to let you; I'm quite happy for you to sit there with your indicator on looking upset for the rest of your life, and b) if we're approaching the cones and you're going up the outside on your own, so long as I'm not causing problems for anyone but you, I will be straddling both lanes so you can't get past to do your dirty trick.
people driving up the hard shoulder. drives me mad!
Couldn't agree more.
People that indicate for bends in the road???
tax dodging old gits wearing lycra suits on racers riding 2 or 3 a breast doing 10mph without any concern for road users.normally found on saturday and sunday morning
the best way to get there attention ive found is to drop a gear a nail it hard.
the wise ones normally move over but there are some stupid ones that dont always get the hint
People who can't parrallel park! If you can't do it, then please don't do it! I waited almost 5 minutes for this old dear to reverse her Green Nissan Micra(bubble shape) into a parking space, and she had no idea... she took so long, that the MPV further ahead managed to park up, do her shopping and drive back off lol... at which point, woman in Micra decides to take the bigger space up ahead driving head first, crunching the nearside wheel against the curb in the process.
So-called "innovations" on newly-designed cars that are either
a reversal of progress because they re-introduce stuff that was made obsolete decades ago, i.e. separate starter buttons: or
pointless reinventions of stuff that is already fitted, but enable manufacturers to charge stupid people more money for, i.e. daylight-running LEDs (remember sidelights, folks?)
mothers who shout and ball at you for driving past the school at 21mph instead of 20 then get there four kids into the people carrier/4X4 and drive off at 40 then pull ou tin front of you when your on the bike at junctions. i get this all the time as my parents live across from a village school.
they seem to think the people carrier/4X4 will shield thier child from everything on the planet,
Bad driving in general...that gets me.
As does poor spelling/grammar. It's not hard...please try.
'Txt talk' on a forum...you have a full keyboard in front of you, if you can't be arsed writing in, why should I be arsed answering?
People who write as they speak...innit m8.
People who fit screens/monitors in the boot of their mahoosive ICE install. Why?
Web board signatures listing all their 'modifications'. Fitting a shorter aerial in not a modification of note...and I don't care anyway...it's pointless.
Web board signatures listing all their future 'modifications'. I don't care how good your imagination is...and it had no relevance...so please, remove them.
I'm going to fit 2 x Carrera GT engines to my Skoda. No, I am. And Lambo doors. It's about as relevant....and boils my blood.
That's jojo facked then!
Ah ken fit ya min!
I'm not Aberdonian, and I don't speak like that! I just happen to live in Aberdeen. So don't kill me! Please!
Same things annoy me!
That's OK...I may live up there, but I'm an incomer too.
Currently - bird ****.. If I had a £ for every time I cleaned **** off my A3 this week I could buy another A3.
My others, I won't list - as most if not all have already been covered!
Interesting thread though
Great read, i agree with most of you but i think danotto hit the nail on the head..
Three of my biggest pet hates on the road
1. People who brake for no reason whatsoever and repeatedly do so.
2. *Most* BMW drivers - watch them on the road and you'll see my point
3. Any retard who cant judge the speed of the fast lane drivers and pulls out on them/me, from the middle lane on the motorway or carraigeway.
Sometime I wish my car had a massive red boxing glove on a huge spring that could jump out and bump some of these people by a push of a button..and a audioble notice stating: "get off the fkin road you inbred!"
cyclists who dont think there life is worth a front and back light not just kids but grown men going to work in the mornings dressed in black with no lights
I think I've found the winner:
When the highways agency employ monkeys who cant ... level out drain tops to the rest of the road.
Spend a day driving round london and as careful as you are at avoiding them.. your bound to buckle at least one alloy.
- cars that go to turning right but 1st let out the van and lorrys in front of you
- Merc and land rover drivers think they own the road.
- again the car park one, park at the back and still someone parks near you.
but I put my hands up on the indicators, I will work on that one.
People that bloody pull out to overtake....but then dont and continue to cruise along at that speed, you have pulled out for a reason, get on with it and let me carry on on my way rather than sitting behind you for ages!!!!
OAP's who can't walk fast than a snail and insisting on crossing the road when there's a Pelican/Zebra crossing 50yards further up. OK, I know it will take them an extra 5 minutes to walk upto the crossing, then back down to the point where they wan't to get to. But, it just annoys me, especially when I have to brake hard to a stop as they slowly crossed the road, and traffic is building up behind me.
People was put Z on the end of every wordzzz.
People that speed! The speed limit isnt a target you know...
I'll agree with the road rat opinion thou'.
