Tailgating tops list of most annoying driving habits

Tailgating is the most annoying driving habit, according to a recent survey carried out on behalf of car insurance provider, Admiral. The study was carried out by YouGov on behalf of insurance provider Admiral and polled 2,500 in order to determine the most annoying habits of road users. While tailgating came top as the most annoying habit, following close behind is not indicating before turning off or changing lanes, while cutting up another driver by driving across their lane unexpectedly ranked third in the list of habits which get under the skin of other road users. While these habits may have ranked highly for being annoying to other drivers, they are also extremely dangerous as not leaving enough space between you and the car in front when tailgating can lead to crashes if the traffic in front stops suddenly. Other irritating practices which the poll highlighted include not paying attention while driving, also hogging the middle lane of the motorway, and 44% of those polled admitted that other drivers not saying thank and being discourteous you really got on their nerves. The results serve part of a wider survey which sought to find out if the UK roads have become worse in the last few years, with the general consensus believing that is has.
