Admiral reveals the most irritating road users

Apparently 36 per cent of people find cyclists the most irritating road users. 
At least we weren't top of the list eh?

Admiral has revealed Britain’s most irritating road users in a new poll, and it’s the older generation that winds up British motorists the most. 
The car insurance experts asked more than 3,000 people to tell them which road users they find most irritating as part of its annual Admiral Survey of Motorists with YouGov.  
It found that elderly motorists top the list, with four out of ten (41%) respondents saying they get them hot under the collar. Next was taxi drivers (37%), followed by cyclists (36%) and van drivers (34%).

  1. It depends how one defines 'elderly'.

    However, it may be that what most motorists describe as 'elderly' drivers, really means drivers who obey road-signs and speed limits.

    I drive, walk and cycle and it's patently obvious that a significant proportion of drivers either ignore or are completely ignorant of the highway code, can't see or understand road markings and road signs and are just plain bad drivers. Many are, or act as if they are sociopaths.
