Default Why ?? Oh for the love of GOD WHY ???

  • Why do people stop and wait at roundabouts when there are no cars coming ?
  • Why don't people use indicators when going around aroundabout ?
  • Why do people use the wrong lane ?
  • Why do people always try and cut in, in traffic queues ?
  • Why do people think that by putting their indicators on, this gives them the automatic right to change lanes ?
  • Why do people do 50 in the middle lane of the motorway ?
  • Why do women think the rear view mirror is really a vanity mirror ???
  • Why do drivers of a certain make of car, think they can ignore the rules of the road and just pull out and cut you up ?

HHhhhhhhmmmmm think you can alter that one a bit, have you not seen the spikey haired, scunk patterned, wanna be footballers, driving thier fiesta SRIs , they don't even wear make up! and spend more time with the rear mirror scanning thier peacock display they even do the head bobbing at the same time.

why do people think it's still OK to use a mobile phone whilst driving?
why don't drivers check their lights?
why is it necessary for the driver to turn to the passenger when talking to them?
why don't people indicate on motorways?
why is the M25 such a nightmare?

Why do drivers still insist on parking across neighbors drive ways?
Why do drivers insist on parking on the pavement, when they own a 3 car driveway?.
Why do drivers park and obstruct corners and leave the vehicle knowing exactly that?.
Why do drivers never park in the middle of a Tescos parking area and always on the white line?
Why do drivers insist on sitting in 1 lane on a 2 lane road, when the right one is there to stop the long ques on the left?.

Why is the A14 a death trap
Why when on a round about does the car on the inside lane decide he is going to cut across in front of you instead of getting into the correct lane before entering the round about?
Why do lorry drivers have so much aggression and decide thay have to overtake each other and then cause the rest of the traffic behind them to slow down
Why cant lorries be made to drive in the left hand lane at all times as they are on the Continent.
Why do white van drivers have to tailgate you when you are doing the legal limit on a motorway?
Why do chelsea tractor drivers think they own the road

I thought it was law that all vehicles drove in the left hand lane except when overtaking

Seriously, if all drivers did move back to the left lane after overtaking, the roads would flow a lot better. The police should enforce this.

I am an HGV and coach driver (considerate one- Honest) and I have lost count of the times I have to slow down so as not to break the law by undertaking a car that is hogging the middle lane at 50mph.
It can take ages for a wagon to reach its top speed of 56mph and if you have to slow down all momentum is lost and that has a domino effect on following traffic.
That is one of the reasons that lorries appear to overtake each other then slow down. If they didnt, then it would cause all the other traffic in the lane to stop.

How many times have you had to stop in a queue of traffic for no apparent reason.
It is because the front car has braked slightly ( usually to rubber neck an accident on the other side) this has caused the following traffic to do the same thus causing a jam.

Rant over !!!

ah the tractors - why do they always need to use public single lane roads in the rush hour? In Canada, they have to pull over if they drive 1 mile without allowing traffic to overtake.

Same here but with horse's stables i'm surrounded with green belt, but they insist on bringing the trecks ( sometimes with children) down over the main road, a road which i have an on going 2 year complaint in regarding accidents and speed.

Unless training police horse's i don't see eth need to force the situation.
