    I LOVE those.
    I give them the opportunity to ease off by flashing the brake lights at them and then just slow down until they get the message or get pissed off and go around.
    As much as i dont like tailgaiters- this really works.

    Tailgaters, people who don't indicate, people who don't observe the road ahead well enough and keep slamming the brakes on, new 20mph limits in parts of South London, people who don't realise that speed cameras in these zones now enforce 20mph but still tailgate you, people who take two spaces with their car in packed streets, people who don't switch on their lights at night and people without working lights (do it once, it's an accident; more though, you should be shot).

    That'll do for now

    People who tailgate when I'm going at the speed limit. Nearly always Audi and BMW drivers I notice.

    People who indicate incorrectly.

    People who use mobile phones while driving.

    People going way below the speed limit for no good reason. Not bothered about slowing down on a very windy national speed limit road, or places where there is good reason to go very slow, and I tend to be quite cautious myself. But doing 35-40 mph on a NSL road which is straight, wide, dry and clear is just ridiculous.

    Oh, and being overtaken by some pleb in a MICRA :facepalm:

    My number one thing has to be...

    People with crappy cars driving at 70 mph dead on in the fast lane on the M40.
    You mean sticking to the speed limit? It applies in the outer lane too you know (not the "fast lane").

    PRECISELY - it's not the fast lane, it's the outer lane for OVERTAKING. Regardless of what speed they're doing if there is a car behind them that wants to drive faster they need to move out of the way. Now the reality is that 70mph on the m40 in the outer lane means that you're holding up a whole bunch of cars behind you while you're lane hogging.

    Sometimes the men who do that kinda thing, have girlfriends who drive their car round, so yes, I have seen that quite a few times actually.

    In fact, I have also seen girls driving around in pink Mitsubishi hatchbacks with pink fluffy dice, loud exhausts, tinted windows and all the usual stuff.

    Lets see now:
    -People who overtake on blind corners (had some tit in a Seat Leon FR do this to me earlier)
    -Impatient people (had some idiot in AE51 LXG nearly take the front off my car, was turning right at a junction and he just goes flying past me, good job I had my eye on my mirrors!)
    -People who do 30/40 for no good reason in a 60 zone
    -Oh yes and tailgaters

    Out of interest what difference does it make what car the person is driving?

    Seeing go faster stripes
    or modded exhausts on crap cars
    or cyclists
    or motorbikes
    or people who dont indicate
    or granny grandpa drivers that go 15mph everywhere
    or giving way to someone who then gets through the lights and I dont
    or when someone goes very slowly then the lights go to amber then they speed up and I get stuck at the lights
    or people who edge forward as you are driving along even though they cant go anywhere
    Prius's

    I could go on forever.

    People who have broken dipped lights, or who use their fog lights when there is no bloody fog. I flash the hell out of people when I see fogged lights on when there's no fog. Drives me mad. Or people who don't adjust their dipped lights, so that it's really high, and blinds you even though they've dipped.

    haha well actually it doesn't make a difference.

    my main anger is directed at people who drive in the fast lane to make a point - 'yeh, I have an old, slow car but look at me i can drive here too and they don't move for ageeeees'

    but no the car has nothing to do with it, driving at 70 dead on when everyone else wants to go faster is wrong
