Is it just me or is the general standard of driving going down hill? I had a 'little' commute home yesterday, from Irvine in Scotland to just north of Cardiff. I get really fed up of the number of 'CLODs' (Center Lane Only Drivers) that travel on motorways. I'm tootling along on the inside lane with nothing in front of me apart from cars doing 60 in the middle lane. I have the option of passing on the inside with the risk that they just might realise that they can use that lane or go from the left lane to the third lane, pass, then back to the left lane. Why can't they just go into the left lane? At road works, they sit in the middle and outside lanes doing 45 while I'm doing 50 in the inside, again, with no other traffic. CLODs really pi$$ me off! Another pet hate, people not waving or flashing when you stop to let them through. Happens a lot around here. A row of parked cars, you stop to let a car coming towards you through and they just stare blankly as they go past, not the hint of a 'thank you' wave or flash of the lights. And don't get me started on the number of reps I see on a motorway doing paper work as they drive. I've even seen guys with paper work on the steering wheel as they drive.
Oh I feel better after that rant. Just got the drive back up to Scotland tomorrow to look forward to now.

she offered her honour; I honoured her offer; and all night long it was on her and off her.
 
You need to buy some 2mm bore green/yellow sleeving the pleasure of its aesthetic neatness makes you chill out.

Agree mate a lot of ignoramuses on the road these days, manners out the window, blow you Jack I'm OK thank you very much, worst culprits apart from Lady Drivers, Taxis, Buses, delivery men and my next door neighbor but two.

The trouble today is selfish driving, no signal etc, just want to get to A, stuff the rest.!!
They don't seem to teach people how to drive with manners these days either. Are indicators an optional extra on some cars?
