Soapbox........Indicators

OK people one of my biggest pet peeves when driving is indicators or rather lack of them!

So many people seem to think they are an optional extra.  Maybe just for decoration.  THEY ARE NOT.

How are we supposed to know where you are going?  I know we live in an age of technology but so far we do not have the ability to mind read or google map your journey for you.

Roundabouts are my biggest niggle with indicators.  Honestly it amazes me more accidents don't happen at one roundabout I use Monday to Friday.  You kind of have to guess or just sit aimlessly with people honking their horns in dismay. 

Indicators are for life people not just when you feel like it.

Soapbox........Cyclists

I know its healthy.  I know its green.  I know they will have thighs to die for. I know its amazing exercise and they can probably eat Mars Bars for breakfast with the calories burned but my god cyclists on the road annoy me.

You spend an age overtaking them for you to then have to stop at a red light, them catch you up and then have to start the whole process again!  I know some cars overtake with ease but far too close.  I like to leave a respectable gap after all I am a law abiding driver but it annoys me greatly.

My other huge issue with cyclists is in the winter when they wear head to toe black!  How are you supposed to spot someone that is virtually invisible?  But I bet it would be your fault if there was an accident. 

My final grievance is the cyclists that just veer out in front out you with no indication they are going to change lane or swing out from a path.  I know I'm good but I am not a bloody mind reader!

So there we have it my enormously irrational annoyance of cyclists.
