Tailgating has again been identified as the most annoying road habit in a poll of drivers.
The top five annoying habits identified in an RAC poll were:
1. Motorists following too close behind (72 per cent)2. Motorists on the phone while driving (68 per cent)3. Being cut up by other motorists (68 per cent)4. Not indicating (65 per cent)5. Not saying thank you for giving way (48 per cent)
Interestingly, driving too slowly causes more aggravation than speeding, with 45% of drivers saying they hate it when other motorists drive well below the speed limit.
While 85 per cent of motorists experience frustration behind the wheel because of other drivers' wrong doing, 70 per cent said that they were respectful most of the time.
The poll was conducted to co-incide with today's 'road respect' day.
