I've been driving for 27 years so I've got a fair bit of mileage under my belt and I tend to be a very laid back driver.Probably too laid back.
Question is, do you punish other drivers if they do wrong.
I tend to be a bit scared because you never know what mad axemen are out there, but then if I don't rebuke them, they think it's okay.
I was royally fecked off after queuing 25 mins on a slip road to have a prat just breeze in front of me.Flashed headlights at him( in a f*ck off way ,not an 'after you mate' way)
Felt like pulling alongside and yelling "Why not f***ing queue like the rest of us?" but didn't.
Not doing my blood pressure any good.Maybe a good rant would get it out of my system and make them think twice.
Or get me knifed.

I generally take the view that I prefer to have the wankers in front of me, so I'm in control.

This attitude has calmed me done a bit except for the caah who cuts me up on every morning school run.

I would love to know why their journey is more important than mine. hmm

Ooo I had a guy pull out in front of me on a roundabout today, was so tempted to ram the bastard but have to think of the paintwork like...

I was in front of a guy who made an illegal turn then tried to get past me to get onto the A road.
I had space to move forward and he kept looking round the side of me but I didn't shift.
Petty and spiteful I know, but if he'd have tooted the horn at me I think I would have said something to him.
It gave me a perverse feeling of power.( And I didn't want to move forward in case the car in front rolled back )
Pathetic I know!

Yep. If they are stupid enough to pull out from behind parked cars into my side of the road I keep going. Just to prove a point.

I'm the opposite of ChaosTrulyReigns I'd prefer to have the stupid unusual drivers behind me so I don't have to look at their stupidity uniqueness.

Oh, and I nearly got hit by a bus on the roundabout. He gleefully pulled on even though it was my right of way. That is unless they've changed the priorities and not told anyone.
