    Default I don't use my car horn very often but..

    The guy in the grey van who decided to pull out of a side junction whilst I was on a fast A road going at 50mph.
    He had full vision all around as its a straight road and he still pulls out...slowly.
    I had my finger on the horn button all the way.

    And he has the cheek to think that I'm in wrong

    No mindees with me today but I just don't understand why some people do that. Pull out at the very last minute and go slowly?
    Do you get these kind of around your area?

    We have lots of elderly drivers who have probably never had an accident in their lives - and never gone faster than 30 regardless of the speed limit!

    They may never have had an accident but I bet they've caused loads

    I live in a relatively small village and every year at about this time, (school leavers ) there is suddenly a load of Evil Kenevil wannabes whizzing at break neck speed through it!
    If all else fails......add glitter!

    Not to mention the number of people who don't indicate on roundabouts. Plus the people who drive the same speed (about 40mph) what ever the speed limit. Oh and people in their BMW or Mercedes (or other fast cars) who come up right behind on the motorway in the fast lane and expect you to get out of the way when there's no chance of them going any faster because of the traffic. Think I just hate a lot of other drivers. Hx

    Just glad to be safe in the house. Another two nutters this evening. One guy weaving in and out of a dual carriageway comes inches from my bumper on a narrow road. I just went slower than he wanted. He thankfully veered off down another country lane.
    Then just half a mile from home some...man (again) decides to pull across the road on the brown of a hill right in front of me, making me brake, so I have to beep again the second time today.
    He just looks at me as if 'What?' So I'm not proud of this, but I did a U-turn further down the road using a side road and passed by his house, wound down the window and shouted "Could you not have waited one second?...You " He still looks as to say 'What?'
    Of course then I was a bit chicken and went the long way round back home.
    Gonna watch Mrs Brown now to calm down..

    It must be the night for it as a brainless mindless w bmw driver tried to sit in our boot tonight. Then pulls of a stuid move to overtake on the dual carraigeway. the worse was he had children in the back as the mum was leaning over to see to them

    Had to give a 'toot' on the motorway as some person decides to carry sheets of plasterboard on the roof of their car and pieces of it were being lifted up snapped off and flying into the carriageway. But still he keeps driving despite people flashing lights and beeping. A piece missed us by a foot!
