Top 10 Driving Pet Hates

Hotted Up Cars

Hotted Up Cars

Oh, another one of my favourites, those people that put spoilers, exhausts, turbo kits etc… on their cars and just burn past restaurants, or lights or bus stops. Oh, you are soooooooo cool! Your car sounds louder than every other car and probably annoys EVERYONE when you touch your accelerator. Congratulations on being the most annoying person on the road. And people pay super big bucks to be that most annoying person on the road! I never new the streets where no fast and the furious and everyone idolises teens driving erratically!

Blind Spot Driving

Blind Spot Driving

That brilliant tactic that some people are just some blind to! Pardon the slight pun! But why drive in that spot, I mean accelerate a little or brake a little to get out of the sweat spot that is our blind spots…Does it feel that satisfying that the person next to you cant see you?

Parking...Or lack thereof.

Parking...Or lack thereof.

I mean surely we cant say that we have never done a terrible park in our lives, however for the majority of us, if we park, get out of the car and realise…hold on, this isn’t going to fly as a park, we usually fix it. But NO! There are some people out there that really….just.dont.care. Its just common courtesy, but hey, the lines are there as a recommendation right!

Green and Yellow Also Mean Stop?

Green and Yellow Also Mean Stop?

Oh bless these drivers. The ones that when turning the light goes yellow or green and they do not move into the middle and wait for the next rotation of lights to come around before they turn. Does it really matter we ask? I mean its not like we have anywhere else to be besides at a turning junction waiting to turn for more than what is required. But first world problems right! Still annoying!

It Starts Raining…Enough Said!

It Starts Raining…Enough Said!

Now, I have to say, we are all guilty of this sometimes…however more are more often than some. When its pelting so hard that you can’t see 1 meter in front of your car and your windscreen wipers are on MAX POWER and still can’t wipe fast enough, then its acceptable to slow down and assess the situation slowly… but not for a little drizzle!!?!?! I mean does it make that much difference when there is a slight pitta patter of rain!

Indicating Early….Extremely Early!

Indicating Early….Extremely Early!

We all know them! Those drivers that love to tell you 100 meters in advance that they are going to turn. I mean bless them for letting us know, however starting to slow down 100 meters prior and indicating…well they could be turning into any of the 3-5 streets or numerous houses along the way. Again….Revoke their licence!

Merging – Your not doing it properly

Merging – Your not doing it properly

The title says it all… is it that difficult to give way to the car on your right? I mean is it that important for you to get in first…even though its still quite blocked up as everyone is being selfish like you! Come on people. There should be specialist merge tests! Give me your hands in the air if you agree!!!!!

Overtake, Cut In, Drive Slow

Overtake, Cut In, Drive Slow

Have you ever had that one driver so close to your rear bumper that when looking in the rear view mirror you can see their nose hair? And they so desperately want to get in front of you and for some reason they think that giving your car a kiss is going to help!!!?? I mean seriously…is it that important to be 3-4 meters ahead ….and when they get that opportunity to overtake…they usually accelerate slowly to get in front of you and then proceed to actually cut you off! Revoke their licences!!!!!!!

Speed Limit? I Make My Own Limit!

Speed Limit? I Make My Own Limit!

Now this one is a serious pet hate of mine…if its signed 60 …why go 50? Or even 40? If you are that uncomfortable on the road doing signed limits…catch public transport! I know some people may say…but come on…they are just driving…yes they are, however they are causing more of a hazard on the roads going slower, its exactly the same if you speed, vs going the limit. Oh and seeing this on the freeway…just drives me nuts!

Accelerate and Brake

Accelerate and Brake

Now we all know these drivers and absolutely love them! The ones that accelerate to the speed limit and for reason can’t seem to hold it and either accelerate too far so they must break instantly to bring them back a little so they are not speeding 1 to 2 km/ph hours over the limit or are constantly slightly accelerating…At the start...I’m sure we are all ripping our hair out…but after a while…I’m so happy I don’t drive like them!
