    Observations on Drivers of Vehicles

    Bimbling up and down from Lincolnshire to the centre of London on a regular basis on the trusted black steed has drawn me to the following observations reference drivers of makes of vehicles - just thought I'd share them with you:

    Peugeot:  By far the worst - unpredictable and invariably bad drivers.  :232:
    BMW:  Usually believe that it is THEIR road - when trying to filter through traffic they will close any gaps ensuring you cannot progress. :230:
    Audi:  Cannot abide being overtaken and do not think speed limits are meant for them.  They are nice cars - why are they in a hurry to get out of them. :182:
    Vauxhall:  Lane hoggers - will not move over to the left when clear. :151:
    Mercedes:  Nondescript really - usually good and well behaved. :028:
    Honda:  Invariably good - steady and courteous. :001:

    As I said, purely my observations.  Have a great day  :152:

    Agree with BMW and Audi. I'd add any small car with lowered suspension, loud exhaust driven by a very experienced, :232: talented :110: (in their opinion) boy racers :005:

    VANS OF ANY SIZE OR COLOUR.

    SEE A VAN, WATCH IT FOR 60 SECONDS, IF IT HASN'T DONE SOMETHING STUPID, DANGEROUS OR AGAINST THE LAW I'D BE SURPRISED.  LET'S NOT EVEN MENTION TAKING ON THE PHONE.

    The problem is that van drivers in general are amongst the best in their ability to drive.  Unfortunately, their over confidence gets the better of them.

    Drivers of big company cars are generally sh#t too.

    Well,what about tractor drivers and i dont mean HD or BMW owners, they are as poo as the muck they spread, never give way, because they are bigger, never indicate because their indicators are either to darn dirty or dont work, dont seem to have the brain power or muscle power to lift the head and look in the mirror.  :230: :230: :230: :172: :172: :172: :232: :232: :232:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    ┼ákoda Octavia RS drivers are the worst drivers EVER! Every one of them are the stereotypical douchebag-streetracer. Every f-ing single one of them! They can do any illegal and/or dangerous maneuver at any time. Especially when it doesn't make any sense at all.  For your own safety, on the road stay away from this pieces of sh#t. As far as you can.

    Fully agree with the comments on Audi drivers / pilots. But of course you do realise that the Audi symbol is not just 4 interconnected circles, it's the average IQ of the driver 0000.

    While we're on the subject, is it no longer taught that overtaking on the inside lane is not on?

    Horse boxes.AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Out early on a Sunday morning and you come up behind one of these huge things,  invariably on smaller twisty roads so driving down the centre at about 35 MPH.
    At the wheel, usually a woman who drives this thing for about 30 miles twice a month. Slowing down even more every 300 yrds with the RHD indicator looking for a gate that shes sure was here last time. Oblivious to the fact youre even there as she cant see bugger all behind her.

    I dont want anyone to think im against the horsey set. I came across a hunt a few months ago, they were blocking the road whilst they sorted themselves out. I sat patiently for a good few minutes while they got themselves together. Its not a problem and i thought it was very good of them to situate the posh totty in their riding gear right infront of me to keep me occupied.
