    Well, I was wondering if anyone else is getting peed off with people driving down bus lanes during restricted hours and people that use fog lights when its not even foggy;

    Bus lanes; Last night when sitting waiting in traffic for 20 mins I saw 12 other cars flying down the bus lane and pushing in at the bottom of the line even though its clearly marked no cars allowed during those hours - I don't understand these people, do they think there better than the rest of us or something? and why on earth do people let them in? surely they know its not right, since so many people (including myself) beep horns and flash lights at them :eek3:

    Fog Lights; People who blatantly drive around with FOG LIGHTS on are really starting to get on my nerves, especially when they are behind you... I don't understand how they can just blatantly be driving down around blinding everyone completely unaware! - the amount of times I have flashed my lights at these people so they turn them off is beyond a joke, yet they don't seem to have a clue why your flashing at them!

    Anyone else with me...

    Fool, fog lights make your car look better.

    I had to drive around for a little while with mine on since one of my head lights was out. Felt like a right ****.

    Yer because otherwise I would have just had one light on, or I could have just used high beam but thought it would be better not to blind people.

    People who have them on in general alongside their headlights are just fools, it doesn't blind you but still...

    Theres this dual carriageway near ours and everyone always goes in the wrong lane then cuts into the right one at the last minute to skip the queue (which is normally like 3 light changes worth) and people actually let them in! Drives me insane!

    Also pisses me off how few peoples' headlights are dipped properly. The number of times someone comes up behind be and I can see the shadow of my head on the roof is astounding.

    I don't mind the bus-lanes thing when I know there are active CCTV/ANPR cameras operating... they won't be smiling when they get the fine through their door :p:

    Whilst I agree in principle, I certainly understand people being frustrated with foglights and badly adjusted lights.

    I quite often get blinded (by other vehicles) at night, makes driving far less pleasurable.

    Meh its annoying but its not worth getting worked up over. Nothing you can do about it so why stress?

    Annoying = idiots with full beams who tailgate me on the way home from work, even though I'm one of the faster drivers on that road. All it achieves is making me slow down to annoy them more.

    Yes but brighter.

    Some cars are fitted with front fog lights below the headlights. Although these are a sorry excuse for fog lights and are more likely to be driving lights.
