Can I only have 3 ?
1. there is a road near me with single lane & passing places as you see in the Scottish Highlands. The council has built a separate cycle path as the local buses use the road, they also fill it.
Cyclist though ignore their path & cycle down it. As they don't fit if a bus is coming we all wait.
2. Wokedom
3. People who drive at 40 mph every where despite the limits.

I could go on but that was cathartic.

I plead guilty to a loose when it should have been lose - spotted it when too late to edit it.

Dave when i came back to Bucks after 12 years abroad I thought it a local issue. Moving to Suffolk shows it is endemic. We need a vaccine!

P.S it took a long time for me to lose the Africa driving style having lived in Kenya. That was a bit more fluid & ignored niceties like traffic lights.

Visitors to Devon's narrow roads and who still have the polystyrene packing on their reverse gear because they have never used it.

Ah yes, give way to anything larger - particularly if it is a military vehicle!! Use the horn at every opportunity! grin2

Graham,
I was once going to a supplier outside of Nairobbery when a traffic jam happened. I wanted to go right as did most people at the junction ahead. Almost like a herd instinct we just peeled off across the field..

We used to go to the Karen Club. Forget taxis so drinking say 4 pints was normal if you drove. Traffic lights were ignored (the bulbs had been stolen anyway).

Happy days

Most of the aforementioned, plus

Driving without lights when it's pouring with rain.
Joining a three (or more) lane carriageway from a slip road and darting across traffic straight to the outside lane.
Lorries doing the slower-than-a-slow thing overtake on a 2 lane carriageway (the M2 is notorious for it!).

I could go on..............

1) call centres that first tell you they are dealing with a very high volume of calls and waiting times may be longer than usual (all of them, all of the time)
2) Microsoft updates when you need to quickly do a simple task
3) every company that when you call them feels they have to tell you all about COVID like you’ve never heard of it.
