lack of indicating make me see red and go into berserker mode, esp as i'm a pedestrian most of the time

Wheres getting stuck behind the numpty doing 30mph on a slip road joining a motorway of traffic doing 70mph plus had to undertake one once on the hard shoulder or would have ended up stopped behind him at the end wonder if he's still there!!!
The one that really annoys me is poor driving from the car in front of the one behind
Dickythecook - best answer!
another one that isn't listed is people that don't put their lights on when its poor visibility, i.e raining or misty/foggy, they seem to think its still daytime so i dont need my lights on, it must be a case of i can see where im going so im ok, or my battery will go flat if i use my lights.

The only one in the list which is life-threatening is the tailgating one, so I find it strange that indicating is in the lead.
Was hard to just pick 1 as they all really annoy me(not the drivers but the habits), it just comes down to common sense yet clearly theres some who dont have any or dont think before they carry out an action.
319 votes!!!? Is that all we can muster. How many of us put our lives in the hands of all the other people who are driving on the roads?. I do not wish to get on a high horse about this, BUT, (and there is always a big but), if we all drove without insurance, and we were liable for any compensation due to anyone who had suffered because WE had made the mistake, would we all drive more responsibly? Insurance is only a bet, when all is said and done. The insurers hope that people pay into the scheme more money than the insurers have to pay out. I think that if there was a personal comeback, drivers would be more considerate. We all drive a method of personal transport, be safe. It is a bit of metal that can be crushed. ENCAP ratings only tell you how safe you will be in a vehicle up to a certain limit of stress.
As I have said many times to people who drive cars..."when you are driving, best watch out for the car in front of the one behind"
All of them and more........
