I can’t stand road maggots, gay fricken Prius cars and slow cars holding everyone up.
I don’t really mind tailgaters, mainly because I drive a truck with a bloody big strong towbar and a tailgater runs a massive risk following closely behind me.
But clearly they annoy other road users.
Drivers that follow closely behind the car in front are the most likely to be annoying their fellow motorists, according to a national poll.
A Colmar Brunton poll of 1000 New Zealand drivers asked what habits were found to be the most annoying in other drivers, with tailgaters the most common cause of road rage.
Tailgaters, drivers that don’t use indicators and texting drivers were the three most annoying habits.
Crawlers, or people who drive slowly, were also considered annoying, and people who use their cellphone for calls rounded out the top five most annoying.
Colmar Brunton chief executive Jacqueline Farman said the survey results indicated drivers found it a lot easier to identify shortcomings in other drivers than in themselves.
