    Dickheads who don't use their handbrakes full stop. I don't like being given a faceful of brake light, especially with some of the newer LED lights (which I know I have). It's not that difficult, even I can manage it in an auto.

    I have a dashcam app. Didn't cost that much and saves short segments of video to your phone, although it does only work front facing.

    you seem to have a real issue with lights stacey - at least you've moved on from front DRLs / fogs

    what about if you are following a car down a hill for a long time?

    ok i agree its frustrating that people don't use the handbrake at traffic lights but one of the key issues is that if you get rear ended and your foot slips off the brake the handbrake stops you heading off into the car in front or worse, oncoming traffic.

    but a brake light is part of every day driving. if its an issue when stopped at lights then it must be an issue while driving.

    bright lighting on cars is an every day issue

    People hogging the outer two lanes of the motorway. Not sure what it is but the M53 and M56 are terrible for this at the moment. Lane discipline is not hard if practised.

    I've never had an issue with DRL's, just the numpties who think they can use them instead of dipped beams.

    I have a problem with any illegal/misuse of lights. Generally because I like to be able to see when I'm driving and when other people misuse their lights it makes it harder to do so.

    I make my named drivers use the handbrake at junctions because I'm very conscious that Nellie's lights are very bright (and I'm aware that it's safer to have the handbrake on if someone rear ends you), one of the reasons I dislike stop/start technology. It just encourages bad driving practices.

    Today's irritation is people staring. Feck off!
