I usually purse my lips when driving, or if I'm bored and stuck in traffic I blow up my cheeks like a puffer fish, only realised this when I caught someone looking at me with a weird look. Mostly drive with one hand holding the bottom of the steering wheel, also drink/eat/smoke whilst driving which I shouldn't do really. I always turn my head to check blind spots and I always indicate, even if there is no one else around.

You sound like a bit of an idiot tbh.
Habits I have:
-Keeping my foot resting on the clutch - not enough to actually trigger it (i.e. no pressure) but I sometimes feel safer if my foots there
-Resting my left hand on my lap.
riding the clutch isn't good, even if you're not causing the clutch to slip you're still gonna accelerate the wearing of the bearing. just try and stick it in front of or to the left of the clutch, may feel strange at first if you're not used to it.
Have you any idea how dangerous that is? What a ****ing stupid thing to do.
my thoughts exactly. Sometimes I wish there were more plod on the roads to catch twunts that do that and shred up their licences, as well as the tailgaters.
on a separate note, someone on pistonheads reported that at a speed awareness course they got offered instead of points, over 50% thought that the national speed limit on single carriageways was 40. explains so much.
I've got a habbit for shouting at obnoxious road users, like the woman driving her micra in front of me today, who decided to suddenly switch on her hazards then immediately stop in the middle of the road, get out her car and run into the shops, obviously too important to search for a parking space. I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to park in the middle of the road, delaying other road users coming both ways.
