You’re off my xmas card list that’s for sure.
Actually that’s reminded me, people who press the button, then decide **** me they can actually get themselves across the road safely, off they go, traffic light goes red, sit and wait at light for no reason.

Doesn't happen in Cyprus. They just go as soon as the crossing is empty.

Good.

Christmas cards annoy me. And birthday cards for that matter. In fact, add greetings cards in general to the list.

You know when you’re driving along, only car in vicinity, approaching crossing, pedestrian doesn’t even look at road just walks straight to crossing and presses button.

Likewise driving along with nothing but an empty road behind you and, rather than wait 10 seconds, a car pulls out of a side road in front of you causing you to slam the brakes on then dawdle along until the div finally gets up to speed.

Drivers who pull into a single car size gap, (between parked cars either side of the road), that you are already driving in and causing 5 minutes of unnecessary manoeuvring rather than giving way, waiting 10 seconds and avoiding all that.

Drivers that don't give way to traffic coming uphill. Is this no longer taught?

And yes I have been out and about Christmas shopping today.

Ho, ho fecking ho.

I get you.

But said pedestrian is obeying the laws of the road and doing everything correctly. If they chose to randomly cross in the USA, for example, a punitive police officer could fine them for jaywalking.

It may annoy you, but you are wrong on this.

Personally, I would, as a capable adult, look up and down the road and cross when your car has passed so as not to cause an inconvenience. But thet might just be me being a pussy.

This.

There's a few hills round South Norwood, Upper Norwood, CP etc and on my daily travels every **** wants to race down the hill so you have to pull over into a gap whilst you are trying to get up the hill. Sylvan Hill, Auckland Road and Stambourne Way are my particular favourites for arsehole drivers who do this.

My daughters art teacher who, I found out today, called her a "Guiri". And my wife, who won´t let me go to the school to discuss this with said teacher.

You should get yourself down there sunburnt, drunk and throwing plastic furniture about. That'll learn 'em.

Ho, ho fecking ho.

Another highway code one that no one aheres to that angers me is when two cars are wishing to turn right opposite each other at a cross roads, you are supposed to drive past each other then turn right, not before in front of each other, but I am forced into doing it the mistaken way as it will mean an accident... READ THE HIGHWAY CODE :wallbash:

Not a pussy, but considerate of the world around you, too many people dont think outside of their own perspective. Like dimwits who dont let people off the train first... let them clear the space you want to take no? And help everyone.

So what happens when three cars are waiting to turn right from each direction? How do you turn behind the opposing facing car if there are other cars directly behind it ?

Yo wait until they have all gone. You should only go in front of the opposing car if the road is arrowed.

The teacher is Spanish, sounds like a right bitch.

As because driving in front of cars creates a blindspot on to potential on-coming traffic.

It seems that onside turning has been relaxed in the highway code though, apprently you can do it if it’s safe. When I did my driving test it wasnt allowed or would be a fail. I still think driving past is a better option as you both clear the way for each other to drive past and you can see the road ahead.
