Dear all of the Audi/BMW/Young Corsa drivers

I love cars. I love driving. There is no fucking need, however, to drive behind me with a space the width of 3 human hairs from my bumper. Just no need.

There is also no need to drive with shit dance music on, with your windows down.

There is also no need to stop at a set of trafic lights (in the dark) and not use your hand brake! Take you foot off the fucking pedal and stop blinding me you twats!!!!

Yours angrilly

One Winged

You'll really fucking enjoy
being behind a large merc E class with "hold" functionality then... No need for any handbrake there and lovely bright high tail lights. Its part of the whole automatic box thing. You would be best addressing that particular part to the manufacturer.

Almost everyone who drives an automatic
will leave it in D at traffic lights, and sit with their foot on the brake.

If you're in the USA, almost everyone drives an auto. I find the brake light thing a bit annoying there because of that.

I notice that an increasing number of cars in London are automatic (presumably because they're less of an effort to drive in stop-start traffic), so it's becoming an issue there too.

Teh great thing is
you dont even have to leave your foot on the brake as a sharp "tap" sticks it on "hold" leaving your brake light shining. I have now written to Mercedes to ask if they will consider a method of turning the brake lights off for the "hold" function and treating it as if you were using the handbrake (which is a bit of an arse if you drive an automatic).

May I
add people who drive with their fog lights on when it's not actually foggy to the list?

My driving music of choice is the soundtrack to the various F Zero and Wip3Out games.

people who don't indicate at roundabouts - or indeed at all.

It's not fun waiting to pull out on to a busy roundabout, waiting for the bloke who seemingly is going straight on, only to find that he was too lazy to pull the little stick down to let me know he was actually intending on going left.

Stay away
from California then - indicators are mainly optional in my experience. When in the Uk I refer to this as "psychic driving" as no-one really has a clue and we all expect that indicators are to be used.

Does this
include "driving lights". I recently acquired a car that has these and find them pointless although they do look a bit like "fog lights".

Are they part of the normal light dial? If so, they're ok.

May I recommend
An ex military lightweight Landrover, with a Nato hitch on the back.

They have a switch on the dashboard to kill all the lights, including the brake lights when in convoy at night...

I'm reliably informed that flicking the switch then slamming on the brakes, poses an interesting lesson in the comparative structural physics of an example of a small underpowered, albeit loud hatchback, and British structural chassis lovingly crafted by Ozzy Osbourne lookalikes topped off with a huge cast steel clamping arrangement used to attach big military trailers.

Just remember to flick the switch back afterwards

Musical accompanyment optional

I want one...

Yes, yes and, what?
I'm in Canada, and grew up using a stick. Nobody ever pulls the handbrake when at a light, and I can't see why you would especially at night - do you really find the brake lights so hard on your eyes?
