Inconsiderate parking - people who leave massive gaps at the end of a parking bay. Oh and people who over (or undertake in the bus lane) then cut back in front in a 30 or 20mph zone.

I wouldn't object to the concours car - IF the owner has done the work himself..... If he/she has simply bought a car which has been worked on by another - well - there is nothing there to be proud of - is there?? It's just ridiculous! :cry:

People who pass you and then drive in front slower than you were in the first place.
People who, seeing an older car which must be going slowly, pull out in front of you. Part two of this are the ones that then in front drive slowly themselves.

People driving really slowly who, when you begin to pass them suddenly decide to match your speed, forcing you to reduce your speed again to let the cars behind pass. Happens all the time unfortunately.

Cyclists.Why don't they just buy a car?
People that sell you stuff that "worked perfectly the last time I used it" forgetting to add that that was 25 years ago before they left it outside in the leaking shed.
