The clue is in the name, all you people who drive around with them on in the rain, or even on a cloudy day. It's not clever, you don't look cool, and they dazzle everyone else.. SWITCH THEM OFF!!! Fog Light users almost always have run of the mill cars that really aren't going to impress anyone with or without their Lombard Rally style lights on anyway. There, that's my rant over. :D

Fog lamp users also invariably tend to think that the safest place on a motorway is the middle lane; regardless of how much or how little traffic there actually is on the road.

And cyclists with flashing lights cycling in the gutter on a main road in the pitch black...

And those bleeders with blue xenon headlights...

And Range Rovers on dip - well if your six foot of my arse your still blinding me...

Shoot the lot of em I say...

Now I'm off to buy a trilby and a Volvo :twisted:

Cyclists on the pavement and cyclists who go through red lights (particularly when people - me - are crossing legally at the same time).

What about those idiots who don't put their headlights on when it gets dark - even on the motorway? Or those who only put their sidelights on, mistakenly thinking it uses less power? Doh! And the one eyed monsters who don't bother to check that all their lights work?

As you can see, this subject really gets my goat .... or is it the Benylin inducing road rage within the sitting room?!

I drive a lot as part of my job - mostly on motorways - mostly in front of all of the above :*: My anti road rage therapy is to wash my windscreen for long enough to make the person behind me have to wash theirs because my spray is hitting their car ... childish ... but fun and fairly harmless :*:

People who don't understand which indicator to use at roundabouts, if in fact they bother at all :twisted:

I find playing a bit of RH helps to stop the evil of road rage entering your head...

A guy ran into the back of me at a set of traffic lights a while ago - I got out inspected the back of the car, there was no damage - so I walked to the drivers window and gave it a tap - he wound down the window and was in tears...

It almost set me off - poor bugger...

you could try wearing sunglasses at night and in gloomy weather that would sort it and you'd look shit cool, or like an idiot depending if you can pull it off.
