Mexican taxi drivers (The only time I have been convinced I was going to die was in a mexican cab) and Honda Jazz drivers (I think they are driving, but can't be sure if that is an accurate description of what is going on in there)

Take a look round the average white delivery van and it's covered in dents. They rush around at stupid speeds often on the phone or looking at paperwork. Howling along country lanes, honking horns at anyone who happens to slow them down for a moment.

Any driver who's not paying attention, is being inconsiderate, has a phone stuck to his/her ear.
Regardless of their cars.
Or occupation.
Or IQ.


And Iranians.

Volvo drivers. Because most of them have crashed already and bought a Volvo as protection when they inevitably crash again. Also they're the least grateful road users along with... cyclists

Mobile phone users. Their minds are elsewhere. They always get in the way as they forget to push the accelerator extra to get up a hill on the motorway and get slower and slower.

MiTo 155 Veloce

17/18 year olds who are on their phones, have a car full of mates, no understanding of how indicators work and/or putting make up on in the mirror. Yeah old slow people are annoying as are middle lane hogs but some of the younger drivers out there are bloody dangerous and entirely unpredictable. At least you know what middle lane hogs and old slow people are going to do. Funnily enough it's often girls in KAs or little chavies in corsas/clios.

Actually scratch that I just hate everyone equally.

On a side note why aren't alfa drivers included in the poll?

Not really but motorists who have no idea how to account for them using the roads do count as bad drivers.
Like idiots who fly around blind bends on country lanes on warm summer days when people are out enjoying their bikes. But then if you are taking extra care yourself they are up your exhaust pipe calling you a slow old driver who shouldn't be on the road or saying you are a typical woman.

Having said that there are also cyclists who are so peed off with traffic and motorists that they set off on their ride with road rage ready to burst at any opportunity. They could be classed as bad cyclists.

Motorists see cyclists as an easy target . I've taken to off road stuff through the commons and parks etc and it makes you appreciate what they are like , throwing their McDonald's packaging at people on bikes and shouting abuse knowing they can get away.

There should be an "all of the above plus 90% of people driving" option.

Driving makes me hate people.
