-Slow drivers in the fast lane
-People who wait for a customer with two grocery carts full of stuff to be loaded on a car so they can get the spot that's a stone's throw away from the front when there's a spot two spaces away that is vacant.
-Inconsiderate assholes who don't use their turn signals or those that flash it twice and feel that's adequate.
-Tailgaters.
-Those that wait until the very last possible minute to merge out of their lane when they've been warned at every half mile for the last 5 miles that their lane is ending.

Middle-lane hogs (or people who generally don't have a clue on the motorway!)

People who think that driving at 5mph below the speed limit (or never over 30mph) will prevent any accidents - old people are guilty of this, they go sloooow, but drive in the middle of the road (particularly on narrow country lanes) and cut blind corners - its amazing I've never seen any accidents on my drive to work, as there are so many drivers like this

All of these have as much right to use the road as you, have some bloody patience or leave earlier!

What annoys me the most on the roads are impatient drivers, people who tailgate you for driving at the speed limit, people who don't see you in their mirrors on the motorway and refuse to give way, and finally, my biggest hate...
Mercedes drivers. I absolutely detest them, this is irrational I know, not all mercedes drivers can be bad drivers surely? But whenever I'm sharing the road with one of these vehicles, I notice the following-
1. They are unable to signal for a turn or to change lanes
2. They are unable to use the inside lane of a motorway, except for to cross to the middle or outside lanes, regardless of other traffic or their speed.
3. The drivers have such stiff necks that they are unable to turn their heads to acknowledge the presence of other traffic, or to look in their mirrors, they do in fact have tunnel vision directly in front of their vehicle.
4. They generally seem to make an effort to be in my way.

BMW drivers seem to share similar traits too... I know this is a huge irrational generalisation, but the fact remains, I hate mercedes drivers!

Those drivers who pull up way over the white lines at junctions so that you'll let them out immediately. I don't.

Drivers who don't follow the highway code as to parking and turning.

Lady drivers who drive along speaking on their mobile phone with a sign on the back window "Baby on board".

Nothing annoys me more than people that don't use turn signals. Especially when you are waiting to pull out onto a road for a car which it appears is going straight on the road you want to turn on, but then they turn onto the road that you are pulling out from, meaning you could have gone the entire time you were waiting.

- people who flip out when others with an out-of-state number plate slow down to find their way

- people who drive slowly all the time and don't let others pass; why do they think they have a right to instruct?

- people who drive dangerously because they're afraid of driving. Please, do take some sort of class or course that'll make you feel safer, but don't slow down when I'm behind you trying to enter the Autobahn!

- people who tailgate; OK, I understand you can't always focus on keeping an appropriate distance. But I will start wondering if I've been unable to see your number plate in the mirror for more than 5 km.

- lorry drivers who think they have to pass other lorries when all they're going faster is 2 km/h

That should be it for now.

Well I agree with all those. I also hate Pedestrians that just cross anywhere and think that they own the road and cross anytime.
But the thing I hate the most when driving. SPEED LIMITS atleast Speed Limits on the highway at 1am. Whats the point.  Smile not like I follow them anyway.
Yea also people that have fast cars who drive slow and people that have huge SUVs or pickup trucks for no reason.

Yes, sometimes people do that in Germany. I hardly ever notice, which might be because I get my bum out of the fast lane when I'm not passing.

Quoting Matt72033 (Reply 24):

Good luck if you happen to meet me on the road! I'll quickly move out of the fast lane if I notice someone in the mirror approaching me, even if it means I'll have to slow down a little. But if said person is flashing lights and whatnot, I might just decide I really need to pass that other car 500 metres away before pulling over.

Quoting YeahitsK (Reply 26):
RRRR I hate that

I do too, it's good it doesn't happen to me all that often. There is that one junction near my house that allows you to see cars several hundreds of metres away. So when I see a car stopping, I'll turn my indicators on looong before I ever get to the junction. That way, people behind me know I'll be slowing down and everyone else knows they've got lots of time to clear the junction.
