I feel that if I see another car do something wrong that affects me while im driving, it is my duty to let them know. Flashing people to move over to the left if clear is one of them. What I seem to get is people saying that I shouldnt go this as im wrong, im not, im offering a public service by telling the other driver he/she is in the wrong and I get blamed!

A friend of a friend now and then mentions how I drive and ive become quite blunt with my answer about it, still asks me though!

Anyone else get this?

Feel free to flash your headlights at anyone you like. Just don't be offended if you get a finger in return, no matter who is right/wrong.

I got flashed once for being in the outside lane. I was passing slower traffic and guy behind came right up to my bumper and flashed and flashed and flashed.

Of course I decided to return to the legal limit and not move. Yes it was childish but I had already been doing considerably faster than I should of been and this moron tailgated me because I was passing slower traffic but not as fast as he would have liked.

I did also give him a nice finger sign before pulling over eventually.. Irony, I passed him pulled over for speeding about 10 miles up the motorway. :D

I dont care if I do get the finger, as long as they either get out of the way or speed up. (this is for the being in the wrong lane for their speed)

If the car is going faster than the other lanes then I dont have an issue with it.

Middle lane morons are a problem but flashing them really doesn't help, in most cases it causes them to act defensively and in extreme cases causes panic.

I'm with you on that one crazy chick. If your going to sit on my bumper when i'm passing traffic I will return to the legal limit and then be all that extra bit awkward to pass. I'm never in the outside lane if i'm not passing traffic so I doubt me and you will never have a problem jaydh as the problem won't arise! lol

No one is perfect, but general driving standards are appaling these days. I just saw a pick up truck use a junction onto oxford street that is taxis only, and left turn only... he turned right :rolleyes:

And then there was the astra van that nearly T-boned a land rover by not stopping at a give way onto old compton street, but that was fine as he gave the landy a blast of his horn :rolleyes:

That was in the space of a half hour lunch time walk!

I was tailgated for 4 miles on sunday, eventually when her bonnet was no longer visible I slammed on the brakes.

I get to my sisters house and her carer turns up.....






'Some fool has just slammed her brakes on in front me'

I gave her what for and told her to put her damn lights as it was a dark morning.

I hope she learned a lesson.

Driving standards are falling all the time I think. :( I don't confess to be the best driver in the world but I am quite considerate. I just dislike being bullied anywhere and that includes the road.

edit.. snow I have done that on many an occasion.

lol. My other pet hate is those that pull out of junctions when your almost at it.. then don't make any progress.. you end up having to overtake them.

Or those that do 40 in a 30, 50, 60 etc.
