Driving us mad? The ten worst driving habits exposed.

People spend a lot of time in their cars. Over two thirds ofrepparttar working population travels to work by car and over a third ofrepparttar 141753 countryís households have 2 or more vehicles. The roads are seemingly getting busier byrepparttar 141754 day, with many people taking their car torepparttar 141755 local shops rather than walking.

It is unsurprising then that road users spend a lot of time feeling irate about other peoplesí driving abilities or should that be inabilities. The daily commute simply drives people mad! Fromrepparttar 141756 old man who creeps alongside you in his Rover so that you canít change lanes, torepparttar 141757 lorry that pulls out in front of you onrepparttar 141758 roundabout. Online car insurance company www.duck2watercarinsurance.co.uk carried out a survey of their customers to find out what really gets on peoples nerves.

1.Top ofrepparttar 141759 list was tailgating. When you see that BMW in your rear view mirror you just know thatrepparttar 141760 driver is going to get as near as he can to you, in an attempt to demonstrate that he could nudge your slower, less flashy car right out ofrepparttar 141761 way. If he adds to this flashing lights and hand gestures you just know it could only get worse if you donít get out of his way quickly. It would be tempting to stay in front of him but frankly youíre just too scared!

2.People talking on their mobile phones. This is now illegal whilst driving! It is really easy not to do this. You can pull over and make your call or just wait until you get home. Add this habit to number one and you end up withrepparttar 141762 most menacing road user out there!

3.Drivers who sit inrepparttar 141763 middle or outside lane holding up every other road user came in third. These people either have no regard for other people or are completely unaware ofrepparttar 141764 annoyance they cause.

4.People who drive without any clue about speed limits. This isrepparttar 141765 person who drives in front of you at 40 mph in a single lane national speed limit zone and then continues to drive at 40 when they get to a 30 limit.
