Taxi drivers that will cut across multiple lanes to stop and get a fare while the whole road/motorway has tostop for them.

Cyclists that ride on major roads.

The 50 km/h speed limit in built up areas in NSW. Especially in little hick towns out west that has 2 houses and a grain silo.

NSW L and P platers having speed limits on their roads. But most of all it would have to be cigarette butt throwers and people who litter and throw rubbish out their window.

Morons with illegal HID conversions in reflector lenses with 6000k blue , if you do a mod do it right.
Last night on the pacific hwy saw one poor guys retinas when he got flashed by a truck.
Also the morons tearing up the local beach in their stupidly lifted patrol , yes those rhs body lift blocks will break very soon.
I don't want the local beach closed because of a very few.

People who chuck rubbish out the window....Grrrr.
People who have no idea about driving on sand & churn the hell out of beach access points cos they didn't let their tyres down or they're just bloody hopeless.
Another beach one - people who flog unnecessarily fast, within meters past people (especially kids) on the beach. But on that note, some idiots shouldn't set up camp right next to or on top of beach tracks either.

People who don't know how to use an indicator
People who can't use roundabouts properly (its not rocket science)
Cyclists
And people who think that gap I left between my heavy 4WD and the car in front is for them to squeeze into, not for the consideration of other peoples safety!

This!

I just bought a brand new MY2014 Ranger and I now leave a bit more of a gap than I did with the Focus, because it clearly stops slower. I'm tired of people thinking they can fit, and then when I back off to give me space behind THAT idiot, another one jumps in.

Hmm where to begin?

People that don't indicate.
Taxi drivers (all of them, They're either driving like maniacs in a hurry to get to a fare, or driving slow as ***** to drag the fare out)
People who run red lights - not orange, but full blown red lights. Seen 6 people do it in the last week alone at 2 intersections.
Morons who don't think ahead and feel the need to cut across lanes for an exit or turn lane.
People in general.
Cyclists that ride 2 or more abreast.
Cyclists on major roads
Cyclists cutting up the inside of a dual carriageway at sets of lights
People that pull out in front of me then proceed to sit 10k under the speed limit.

I think that'll do for now.
If it can't be fixed with duct tape or a hammer, It must be electrical

I hate when people overtake me when I am going only slightly slower the speed limit then immediately slow back down to the speed I am going....like what the hell are they gaining by over taking then slowing down

And people using the extra gap I leave between my 4by and the vehicle in front of me as a place to use up after they have over taken me!
