    What makes you really cross?

    Please keep this topic off of personalities on here!! I know what some are like!

    I live in a fabulous part of the world, twixt sea and forest. I drove across a particularly beautiful part of the New Forest today to meet friends for lunch. It was a grey and 'mizzly day' but brightened by the number of New Forest Ponies and their foals along the way, a real delight.

    Until the inevitable, the crass idiot driving well in excess of the 40mph limit, had anything been coming in the other direction, when he nearly hit the ponies.................

    Luckily today, they lived, hundreds don't each year.

    It makes me so angry, why can't people keep to the speed limit??

    Lizzie.

        You and I keep to the limit because conciously or unconciously we have all the following to varying degrees:

        1) Regard for authority
        2) Fear of being detected
        3) Fear of being inspected
        4) Fear of penalty
        5) Severity of penalty
        6) Intrinsically well behaved which is a function of our values, upbringing etc.

        Called the Applied Behaviour Model.

            My pet hate is selfish idiots who park in a disabled parking space when they are not disabled. The other week I parked behind one woman as she was sprinting out of her car and blocked her in while I went shopping. But not before I put MY badge in the window :D When I came out she was blowing steam out of her ears... oh please DO call the cops I said... go right ahead and we'll see who gets the ticket you or me?

            Hopefully she'll think twice before being so selfish.

            I also wrote down her reg plate and make of car in case mine got damaged.

                Another pet hate I have is cyclists who are dressed all in black and no lights on their bicycles and who are NOT using the cycle lanes. If I can't see you and I run over you.. so sorry but hard luck.

                    On the driving issue - I hate when people fly up on the outside lane that is for turning right. You crawl for the last hour in the left lane for turning left or going straight ahead. Those speedys on the right then cut into your lane and there is always a sucker to let them in!
