Driving Pet Peeves

I'm lucky enough to have my own car, and I have been driving for almost 3 years, I used to love it, but now, I dread getting in my car thanks to the absolute twats you run into on the road. So I've put a list together of my driving pet peeves, including at the end some quotes from people on twitter!
(i totally cleaned my car just to take a photo for this post)

People that don't indicate

Do you know how easy it is to flick the indicator to let people know where you're going? NOT VERY HARD. It literally takes two seconds, so just do it? Nothing more frustrating than driving behind someone that suddenly veers off left/right and leaves you having to break quickly. Wankers.


Just...why? It's annoying, dangerous, and literally all you will achieve is me slowing down even more on purpose. If I can see the whites of your eyes in my rear view mirror, YOU'RE TOO DAMN CLOSE.

People that pull out of junctions in front of you

So dangerous, and lord knows I will use my horn. Just why? Why do drivers feel the need to pull out a junction when they can see you coming? If I have to break to slow down, you shouldn't have pulled out, simple.
It's even worse when said car then drives at/under the speed limit.

People that don't say thank you when you let them out/let them past

This is so rude, I've taken my time to slow my car to a stop to let you past, AND YOU CAN'T EVEN GIVE A FLICK OF YOUR HAND TO SAY THANK YOU?!
This then makes me angry for the rest of my journey, meaning I also probably won't let anyone out again because of one idiot.

People that drive under the speed limit

Just no. If I have to overtake you because you're driving 10-20mph under the speed limit, please rethink your life choices, and maybe get off the road too.

Drivers that leave their high beams on

This has actually happened to me from cars that are in front and behind me. Ridiculous right? You are literally blinding me, I can't see the road. I could literally crash. Fucking turn them OFF.

I also asked people on Twitter what their driving pet peeves were, here are some of the best ones I recieved!

'don't know if this applies but also when they don't park in their own bay and take up half of another'

It totally does count.

'people who go into a lane even though they know it's ending & then try to push in front of you'


'people who use their phones while driving'

So stupid, they need their license taken off them

Do you have any driving pet peeves? I would love to hear them in the comments!



  1. Fantastic blog post Katie xx

  2. This made me laugh but also made me angry thinking of all the idiots out there. I get such bad road rage and it's just heightened by people not thanking me when I let them merge in :) I turn into a full on road psycho

  3. Holy shit this is one of the most relatable posts I've read... ever! I actually brake suddenly if I feel that someone is driving to close behind me, if they also have to apply their brakes then they're too close for my liking x

  4. Great post Katie, I have such bad road rage because of all the idiots on the road. This post made me laugh x

  5. Love this post! I can't drive myself but I still get annoyed at those things 😂

  6. This post made me giggle so much because even though I don't drive myself yet, I get so irritated by all these things, especially the indicators, kerb crawlers and the ones that wan't to hitch a free ride off the back bumper lol xx

  7. Such a great post, I literally was nodding along shouting YES at each point as I seem to experience these on a daily bases. My biggest pet peeve is when people use their phones in the car, I've witnessed some simply scrolling FB and I'm like FB is not worth dying over, there is nothing of interest on FB that can't wait till you get home, it infuriates me (just a little!) great post! X

  8. Can I add people who have their front fogs on when its not foggy????? This drives me mildly insane!

  9. This was bloody HILARIOUS! I actually laughed out loud quite a few times and seriously I get so pissy when people don't give me the courtesy wave if I let them in! haha

  10. This post is so relatable. My biggest driving peeve is people who text and drive, you are not only putting yourself at risk but other drivers at risk too. It’s not fair!

  11. Thank you so much for these information. I was really delighted after learning this. There might be others like who wanted to get these information too. Recently I went to vehicle Crash Repair to repair my car since I had a minor car accident.
