Ok ive noticed over the last few months people are becoming utterly rude on the roads. My gripe is you flash to let someone out of a road or pull in front of you and they dont say thank you at all :frusty:

If anyone ever lets me out etc i always flash my indicators or hazards, at least acknowledge them to say thank you as its polite!

Anyone else noticed that the polite British matter is disappearing?

yep definately, i cant remember the last time i was thanked after letting someone out or through. on the other hand, i havent noticed anyone being less curteous in terms of letting me pull out in tight situations or anything - just when its the other way round theres never even a change of facial expression

i think alot of poeple are just more stressy/moody nowadays, dont think its just where driving is concerned. even poeple in shops are rude now, its like alot of poeple just dont care about manors etc anymore :thumbsdown:

I totally agree, people are so ignorant :sad:

So many times i let people out, give people the right of way etc, no thanks, no wave, no bloody nothing.

It really does wind me up, manners cost nothing. I always thank people when the let me out etc (which is a bloody rarity)!!!

I had some guy who would'nt let me in (merging lanes) he was on the inside, and shot up the inside from behind, i had the kids in the car aswell :o:o:o

I was raging, and he was trying to have a go at me!
He soon shut up when he realised i dint care to much about damaging my old 'tatty' astra, to get into the lane :lol::heh::nod:
