(1) Yellow "Baby on board" signs. What's that supposed to tell me? Generally speaking, there are no babies or small children, so either you're lying or you've lost your child somewhere in a shopping centre. I have, oddly enough, managed to avoid ramming into the car in front of me: normally, it's something I try to avoid. Your sign telling me that you have a child in your family (although rarely in the car at the time) is never going to make me **less** likely to slam into the back of you. Trust me on this. I'll try to avoid it anyway.
(3) to do with English motorway driving particularly. There are three or four lanes on the motorway in South-East England. Use them all!! I've sometimes driven down to Dover thinking I've had my own private lane, driving at the speed limit down the inside lane while there's been huge queues of cars outside me.
Have to completely agree with both statements! Despite my lack of driving, the amount of lifts and travelling in a car means I experience just the same thing, though with point 1, the even worse thing is if they have a "Little Princess On Board" or "Disco Chick on Board" - that's just going to make people want to smack into you more - there is no point whatsoever in having these on, rather than just to prove your an irritating person who loves attention!
Onto public transport now - People who INSIST on playing music from their mobile phones! Buy some headphones and stop subjecting everyone on the bus/train to your awful pathetic (c)rap music - no-one wants to hear it! And at the same time, I DO NOT want to know what your having for tea while your talking incessantly loud to someone who is shouting back at you on the phone. Tone it down, or save the call for later - can you not just wait 10 minutes to make the call? "I'm on the bus" - REALLY? I'd never have guessed!
Ignorant tourists - the people that just stop in the middle of a street and then wonder why you barge past them and say "oh, how rude".
Rail Replacement Buses - Even the title is wrong, they are not replacing a bus! I could do a book on these!
Major connecting roads that go from one town to another WITHOUT providing a footpath of any description. Consequently when your walking on the edge of the road, some bright spark in a car decides to beep you. Erm, if there was a path don't you think I'd be on it instead of risking my life to get somewhere?!
The cost of train fares - Over £100 on the day to get from Leeds/Doncaster to London
, that's just scandalous! No wonder so many people drive!
That's all for now, but I don't half feel better
