For me, it is the state transport buses. They stop in the middle of the road, start off without caring if someone is half way into overtaking them, and dont give a second thought to overtaking from the left. What i find most rediculous and irritating is that from one stop to the next, they accelerate as if they r trying to see their 0 - 100 timing!
I go a little easy on cyclists even though they do irritate me at times. I go easy on em coz firstly, they are not polluting the environment (as long as they aint smokin beedi) and secondly, its a lot more effort for them to get back up to their normal speed after hitting the brakes than it is for us.
Since IMHO, rashly driven buses are more dangerous than rashly driven autos, i have voted for buses.

Cheers

though i voted for auto and taxis my second choice would be the cops. they think they can behave the way they want when they are driving. once i was coming from ghatkopar to vashi and on the eastern express highway this group of cops (not the traffic havaldars) gave me a brush from the left side just to show that they can do anything. if i hadnt applied brakes at that time they would have got hit badly becoz they came right in front of me then. i was very angry and decided to give them a doze. i did exactly what they did to me and u should have looked at their faces. they started abusing me but i dint bother to even look at them and raced my accent gls at the top speed as their gypsy could hardly have matched my car.

Another pet peeve which is not listed here is any vehicle billowing out black fumes. They are the only ones that make me drive rash coz i cant stand being behind such a vehicle. I feel like pulling the driver outta the vehicle and giving him a few lessons about vehicle maintenance and the environment.

- fellow taxi drivers: they in their SLOW padminis, never give way and irritate u a lot
- fellow RICKSHAW driver: they think that the whole road is their fathers property and dirve like maniacs
- CYCLE wallah: "no looking BACK" is their funda in life
- PEOPLE WHO "HONK" A LOT, that is the most irritating thing while drving.
- BEST BUS DRIVERS: these people take the CAKE in irritating others. . .the drive without any care for other people.

Guess you dont have the call-centre Qualis or Innova wala-s in Mumbai
Here in Delhi, they could make Narain K blush

BMTC Buses, ricks, call centre cabs, trucks in ring road hogging all three lanes, people crossing hapazardly commanding in the middle of the road to stop a speeding car are most irritating during driving

When waiting at the signal, bikers sneaking in the smallest available gap, daring to fold your mirror and ride away with out unfolding it, beggers and hawkers pleading by touching wind screen and windows with their dirty hands and not leaving way when it goes green...

that leaves with no body else on the road...

Out here in Hyderabad irritants are many. Some of them are
  • Bikers and scooterists who always overtake you from the left at the most inopportune moments and then cut across and brake!
  • RTC buses. They move at their pedestrian pace and yet won't let you pass by. If you try overtaking them from the left they will immediately swerve at a sharp angle threatening to swipe your car away.
  • Those call center Qualis and Indicabs. They seem to have graduated to these vehicles from some sort of tthelagaadis that refuse to move. For how else do you account for their enthusiasm in darting their vehicles in otherwise slow moving traffic at times threatening to rip out the side panels of your car if so required...
  • Otherwise also people who seem to have no lane sense, parking logic or for that matter do not know that their vehicles' have a dipper switch for headlights.
