    Middle laners are pretty bad too. You are flying up the nearside lane and they in middle meaning you have to move over 2 lanes to get round them.

The highway linking Auckland to Wellington is mostly one lane that trucks do at 75KPH (because they're fat as sin and can't maintain the speed limit around corners), on the overtaking sections however (long flat sections), those swine's will accelerate up to 100KPH. Ergo, the only way to overtake them is to speed. You'll routinely see cars hitting 120+ trying to jump these $#@!ers to avoid being stuck behind them for some 30mins before the next section....And the police have the audacity to pull them over. Nope, instead they should stop the truck and every car behind will not rush down that one segment of road.

    More civilized countries limit the speed of HGV to something lower than what cars do (in the UK i believe it's 60 or something).

    I hate it when someone doesn't actually stop at a traffic light/junction, instead slowing down to a crawl and slowly creeping forward until the light changes.

    Get to the frakking light and stop ffs!!

    Cyclists on the road when there is a perfectly good cycle path next to it causing traffic to bottleneck! I use the cycle path if I ride why can't they???

    I feel you.

    I had a couple of times where we got a note when actually someone was at home.. They just didn't rang the bell or anything. They put the note in the mailbox and left.
    Best part is, on the note they write NOTHING on when they return or a number to call for a next visit, no, they just give you the tracking number. Which is the same $#@! as I already get every time when it's being sent, so it's useless....

    The former saves you fuel, why stop if you don't have to.

    The latter, I see plenty of cars parked in cycle lanes every day.

    Same here, if I have paid for it I want it now god damn it!!! lol

    Cyclists on the road really piss me off, especially as they act like they can do anything they want and it's up to the drivers whether they want to run them over or not!!

    I want to also add online trophies and the F1 winter break to my list lol!

    True, but it can't be good for a clutch to ride it like that!

    The latter, I see plenty of cars parked in cycle lanes every day.
    That would annoy me too, but where I live the cycle paths are separate from the roads.

    I don't get why someone would risk their life riding on a busy road when there's a perfectly safe alternative within 5 feet??!

    Because it wouldn't be their fault and they would sue the ass off you if you did injure them whilst on a bike, think that's why the ride on the road most of the time because they know they can get away with it should anything happen!

    A bit of a generalization here, but I think there's two different types of cyclist, there's the ones that ride a mountain bike abide by the rules of the road if on it or use a cycle path.

    Then there's the aggressive grape smugglers on racing bikes that weave in and out of traffic, ride side by side with their mates, run red lights don't stop at junctions and will be the first to knock off your wing mirror dare you say anything!

    With this nice weather too there are loads of cyclists around, i dont mind if i can get passed them easily, but there was one this morning that i couldnt get around and it pissed me off i was waiting for it to be safe to overtake and then he decided to cycle in the middle of the road so i was just stuck behind him, tried not to ride my brakes too much behind him.

    Oh yeah one thing that bugs me are people with really nice cars that dont drive properly, so many people riding their brakes or their clutch, and then people with turbo diesel injected audis who are stay at 40mph in a 60mph limit. GIVE IT A BIT MORE JUICE AND ENJOY WHAT THE CAR WAS MADE FOR!

    People who drive 4x4's and never actually use them off road or move out they way on a single track road when you only have a car with 2 wheel drive! Either use them like your supposed to or buy a smaller car and stop thinking your cool because you have a 4x4!!!!

    No need to ride the clutch, just drop down as you gradually slow down, I do it often on lights I know are going to change soon, so start off in second gear rather than accelerating from a complete stop.

    I get all that, I do it if I know it's going to change, but there are some lights round my way that seem to take an age and these people slow down to about 1-2mph 50m before the light (maybe a slight over exaggeration) and creep up like that so in all likelihood they are riding the clutch!

    At least she had the courtesy to leave a note, 99% of the time the person who'd done the damage would do a runner!

    The amount of times I've noticed scuffs to the bumper or scratches on my car over the years where nobody has left a note is beyond taking the p1$$!

    Using "Could of, should of, would of."
    The incorrect use of there, their, they're.
    Using the word "period" at the end of a sentence.
