another thing that really grinds my gears is when somebody hoons along to the very end of the merge and push in the line!

A common one up here is failing to stop at compulsory stops, and failing to give way at intersections.

Oh and the other one that ticks me off is failing to check your surroundings/blind spots before changing lanes.
"There are so many people who say you can't".
"All you have to do is turn around and say "Watch me"".

Why is it so hard for people to follow this rule.

I don't know which rules are most commonly broken, but one that blows me away on the country road leading to home is the amount of people cutting blind corners. I've seen one big crash and a few very close calls in the 2.5 years I've lived up there, it's insane. But yes the failing to keep left in general seems to be a common thing, but failing to indicate and follow basic give way rules (if you pull out infront of someone and they have to so much as touch their brakes to not crash into you, you've failed to give way. Some people seem to say "oh well they were going too fast" as they spend the next 500m getting up to the speed limit - much to the detriment of the 5 cars that are now backing up behind them).
Oh and something that's far too common (but seems relatively local to Silverdale) is peole turning right at a roundabout that don't indicate at all, have had a couple of closeish calls because they're quite small roundabouts here.

If people just applied a bit of common sense and ditched the "he has brakes, he should use them if he doesn't want to hit me" attitude (something that I REALLY notice when driving the Escort because it's not as manouverable as modern cars to avoid these people) then I reckon road accidents would halve overnight.

Because people don't want anybody getting in ahead of themselves.

It drives me up the wall! People sit in rush hour traffic in Auckland and stress out about ONE car going ahead of them, next minute the whole on-ramp is clogged up and bottle-necking the motorway. /rant over.

What pisses me off is when traffic is banked up in one lane and the passing lane is empty. And then as you try an use the "passing" lane to pass the slow people, one idiot will pull half into your lane to try and stop you getting ahead of them, like tall poppy syndrome. IT'S A FUCKING PASSING LANE, not "use me only when the traffic is flowing freely" lane.

Or when people tailgate me and expect me to take this as a hint to tailgate the slow car in front of me...

But I think the merging like a zip thing is the worst.

not really breaking the law but I cant stand it when someone uses an entire passing lane to pass another car, meanwhile theres still 10 cars behind also wanting past. Put your damn foot down

And then slow down to 90 after the passing lane...

I think too many people grew up with buttons on their shirts and have never seen a zip Vicki.
