Can you please turn your lights on. Your vehicle is the same colour as the sky today. Also it is 6pm anyway. Thank you.

And please indicate when turning left at a roundabout so that the car to your left doesn't sit there waiting for you to pass. (This happened with 3 cars in a row at the height of congestion today. They probably weren't all silver though!)

To all drivers: indicates to signal your intention (3 sec in advance), not document actions you've already started taking.

Just for the OP I will turn both my headlights and fog lights on, you won't miss me then, ok?  

Lets not forget to keep to the right lane when turning right at a multi-laned road...guess what, if you do that then the opposing cars turning left can enter their lane and everyone merges nicely meaning less congestion by keeping things moving smoothly.

Co-operation and consideration, foreign concepts I know, but you can do it!

Ah... People who slam the brakes THEN indicate they plan to park...

I find those that slow to 20k's to turn left into a road, and also decide to move the the middle to take a big wide turn to be the most annoying. Choose one, either slow down and pull to the left, or take the corner at a decent speed.

My pet peeve!

And those who drive around suburban streets at 35 kph in their little Noddy cars




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

To the Ute driver to cornered with an oversized trailer at 100 clicks round a 75 click bend for cars and ending up in MY lane ... I hope you've learnt something! Idiot! Luckily I was tired and driving slower than legal limit and the road shoulder was wide enough for my van ...

You shouldn't be on the road if you were tired either...

Yeah I know. I was aerobically tired from loading the van! shifting the car seats around, kids, pets, pet stuff, presents, more presents, food, more food, big boxes of stuff that the in law bought online ... wow. Never again LOL. 

Was also going to load 4 bikes onto the towbar but when I shut the boot I drew a line and put all the bikes back in the house!

When everyone is lining up in the turning lane, and some genius guns it in the 'straight ahead' line... then slams on the anchors and pulls into the turning lane.
You.
You're not a genius.
Just a sociopath.

I bought a grey car. When i got it it looks like the colour of the road.

All road coloured cars please turn on your lights.

Quoting this for the benefit of the car that I was just behind. Came to a full and complete stop in the middle of the road, THEN started indicating intention to park.
