1. Autorickshaw/rickshaw
2. Cyclists
3. 40kmph dudes in fast lane, going parallel to 40kmph due in middle lane. No amount of honking can make them budge.
4. DTC/Private buses for whom a bus stop can materialize anywhere

One incedent, Not really irritating but funny...
When I went to Tumkur, one small kid challenged my car in a small by-lane (it is called MG road), and rode his bicycle ahead of me not giving way for about half a KM.. He was putting in all his stenghth in his little legs, to beat me and at the end of it he had that smile of winning

When im driving, its got to be when;
1people dont move from the right side of the road and then curse you for being underage and rash.
2when you overtake from the left side!!!(can be very irritating).
3People who drive on high beam on very narrow roads.
4Auto wallas who keep the autos idling till the light turns green then the engine stops and they are stuck in front of you.

1. People with very bad driving sense.

If this is solved, driving on roads might be a breeze.

Default No descipline

When approaching a signal, vehicles fill all possible open space (2/3 lanes), be it bus, car, three wheeler or two wheeler, irrespective of them going to take left turn or right turn at green. They just block the whole traffic and increasing frustration by taking right turn from being in the left most lane/corner or other way around.

[SIZE=2]On bangalore roads.. first of all there is no driving sense..first its the AUTO drivers.. they think they own the road and drive at snails pace and will never let u overtake.. if you do then they scream at you like its your fault you overtook them.. people think the hazard lights are to go straight if he is in a intersection.. i dont know how many have observed this but it actually happens.. then its the usual, cycles,cows,dogs,people, and everyone else want to walk on the road rather that the footpath... [/SIZE]

People also think that if they turn on the hazard lights, then they can park anywhere.. even if it blocks half the road!

The most irritating thing for me: Seeming respectable
and educated people driving on the wrong side of the
road... especially while taking a right turn.

Which of you all done that?

well all those and same about the Call Centre Taxis in HYD too! these Qualis and Indica Taxi drivers are like sh*t!

all these problems, if one notices, are coming from "uneducated/illiterate" drivers. thus the solution... only 12th pass ppl should be allowed to become drivers.

55+ old man , looking very respectable in a white Alto going thru a red light as if it didnt exist, only to move at 35kph afterwards blocking plenty of traffic behind....

This happened today morning and is one thing that makes me mad!

Missing the signal by a couple of seconds
Errant drivers.
People who break the signals when the timer reaches "10 seconds to go" mark.
Potholes.
When I miss a gear on my bike.
When someone stalls and the rest of the guys honk as if they are being humped from all sides.
No offences meant, but some drivers of the fairer sex do tend to drive me nuts sometimes.

In the last 5-6 years, driving in India itself has become irritating!!
