I have been in one accident in my entire life. One accident in 40 years of driving.

 

The reason... some <deleted> was coming up behind me at about 110mph, I got over out of the fast lane. It was raining and the guy in the slow lane was a putt putt vehicle that was crawling. I am fully bearing responsibility for my own accident, but here i am just proclaiming the problem is people going to fast in the fast lane and expecting every damn driver in the world to roll out the red carpet and get out of their way (after flickering their brights).

 

Nothing makes me mash my teeth more. If you are heavily speeding in the fast lane and want people to get out of your way, <deleted> you. You are not in the right! 

I have never understood this.  Maybe it is a European thing.  Don't roads have speed limit signs?  Aren't said signs to express the maximum speed allowed on the road, not the minimum.  The rest of any argument about this is just a question of courtesy.  The entitled however have never, and never will subscribe to the idea of courtesy.

But most of the time this isn't the issue.

 

Coming up (at a legal 120kph) upon someone in the right hand lane doing 80 (or even less) is.

 

Try hogging outside or centre lanes in the UK and you'll get a fine (even if you are driving at the speed limit).

I really hope they enforce this, nothing worse than someone sitting in the fast lane with their cruise control set at 70 and refusing to move over, even worse when they know they are holding someone up behind them and they indicate right as if to say go around!! inconsiderate A-holes!!

because the current drunk-driving law excludes cyclists.

Now I know why there are suddenly so many cyclists about.

so... it was the driver behind you using his lights that stressed you and caused you to make a bad driving decision?

 

unless it's the police, people flashing their lights behind me don't cause me stress, they just have to wait until I'm done overtaking.

some people like to come very near, usually lighting up the brake lights sorts them out.
