    To which I'll add anecdata; I was early arriving at a meeting on a building site, so waiting in the office portacabin thing. There were two chaps in there - I think one was an M&E estimator, the other a surveyor - and one had just bought himself a Jaguar XF - this was about five years ago at a guess. He was extolling its main benefit "I can drive like just as much of a **** as I did in my beemer or Audi, but people don't seem to realise".

    ;)

    I would agree with BMW, Audi and range rovers as being the most impatient and aggressive on the road for sure. 

    However I find Nissan (especially micra) and Kia drivers are definitely the most incompetent and dangerous drivers on the road.

    There is nothing worse than a Nissan Patrol. It's an outward statement of "I could have got a landcruiser, but I specifically want to be associated with those other Patrol drivers who drive like dicks".

    For other stereotypes that are probably true, see:

    It depends what BMW. 3-series drivers tend to be the worst, but I would actually say that Range Rover drivers are the ones I'd like to do away with.

    There seems to be significant levels of the fiat things pretending to be vintage cars driven by people with no concept of how to use lanes on motorways and dual carriageways.

    s'all about location, round here the worst and rudest drivers on the roads are the 16 yr old farmers sons in their dads tractors.

    I think the Beemer / Audi / Merc driver thing is well out of date..
    these days where I live it seems that most people drive like dicks no matter what they drive..
    also, sex and age don't seem to make much difference either

    choose which lane to be in at traffic lights, a roundabout or junction seems to be based on which one gets you closest to the front of the queue rather than which direction you'll be heading in next..
    and so of course when it's time to head in the next direction there's the inevitable drag race and cutting up..
    and a red light seems only to mean stop after it's been on for a little while
    play every note as if it were your first

    I've currently got a BMW M3 as a company pool car - and having previously owned a normal 3 series myself people do treat you differently I find when you're driving a BMW.

    People can be less courteous and even quite aggressive when I'm driving the BMW - I really don't think I drive it any differently compared to my Merc or the wife's Fiat.

    My list of the worst-driven cars on the road, in the South East at least:

    - Nissan Juke. This is a shit car bought by idiots, a theory borne out when you see one in action.
    - BMW 3 series. The embittered M1 tailgater's wheels of choice.
    - Audi A4. The embittered M1 tailgater's other wheels of choice.
    - Alfa Romeo Giulietta. A leftfield choice, as indeed is buying one. To my surprise, every time I see one it's being driven too fast by a cunt.
    - Addison Lee's fleet of Ford Galaxies. Fuck me.
    - "Put your hands on the Holy Bible and scream "WANK!""

    And how many BMW M3's get sold every year? Very few. I find the worst drivers are people in fast performance models from BMW, Audi, VW (especially the Golf GTi crowd), Jaguar and Range Rover drivers.

    Range Rover drivers are some of the biggest idiots round my way, I am in Essex though.

    However, I'd have to say the worst/most dangerous drivers I come across on the road are Geriatrics in those stupid little shopping trolly cars. No signalling, total lack of spacial awareness and parking ability, driving everywhere at 40 mph (including 30mph zones). Every week there seems to be story in the local paper of some old duffer who's mistaken the throttle for the brake pedal and put their car into a wall, onto some railings, on it's side or as a few years ago mounted the pavement in the high street (20mph zone) and killed a young woman. Definetely need to bring in retesting at 65 and every 3 or so years after.

    I'd say newer model range rover drivers rather than the older ones...

    Have to agree with BMW though - there is always an exception to the rule but in general it's these..

    Few things that have happened to me..

    BMW 7 series i think - Undertook me on small roundabout, weaved in and out of traffic.. cut lots of people off.  
    Seen this guy a few times... Always the same driving, in and out, overtaking on corners, undertaking where he could..

    Range rover - one night, ranger rover overtook me (i was doing 60 on a 60 road..) guy leans out the window and drops a load of stones on the road in front of me. I was lucky not to crash. Caught up to him, got number plate, reported to police, showed police a chip in front of my car, criminal damage, happy days.

    BMW in car park, parks, opens door wide hitting car next to it. Guy had a look, sneered and walked off. Quite a large dent left in car..

    Huge number of times i've been tailgated by BMW drivers..  They get right up to a few feet of you, start flashing and honking like there's not a truck in front of me...

    When they close a lane on expressways/motorways - everyone getting into lane, except the BMW who cruises right down to the road cones closing off the lane and forces way in being a right dick about it.. 

    I could keep going.. just the sheer arrogance that they seem to have on the road.. 

    Not saying it's just these, but in my experience, more often than not, if there is a dick driver, it's a BMW.

    Range Rover drivers for the win, but honourable mentions:

    - Toyota Prius (basically, Uber) drivers - loitering, stopping, U-turning, meandering wankers

    - Pizza delivery twats on bikes - first of all, why is allowed that you can be paid to drive your motor vehicle whilst you have a Learner plate? If you want to use your bike for work, you should be forced to pass a bike test. Second, stop coming to my house by mistake - I have NEVER in my life ordered a delivery pizza.

    Smart Car drivers.  When they park at right angles so their bonnet sticks out beyond the row of other cars.  Makes me want to take a chainsaw to them.  And they drive like they have something to prove - "look at me, I can drive just as fast as normal sized cars".

    Currently what's pissing me off is drivers who don't know / can't be arsed to use their handbrake. Sitting in a queue on the evening commute that's not moving and won't be for several minutes, modern car with super bright lights, foot brake engaged the whole time, blinding every fucker behind them. Why do people do this? It doesn't seem to be any particular brand of car. It's probably not even deliberate. Just one of those aggravating habits that creep in without the realisation that it completely fucks the night vision of the people behind you. Sometimes it's so bad that I put the sun visor down and my hand up until the traffic startsmoving again. They still don't notice. Knob heads.

    I think that's gotten worse as there are more auto gearboxes, and more cars with auto-hold. On mine the auto-hold keeps the brake lights on. It takes but a moment to use the electronic parking brake (which turns off when you press the go pedal so it's no more effort) but as you say, a lot of people are lazy.

    And some cars have crappy design where the stop-start doesn't work on the handbrake, or the engine fights it. Still lazy driving though.

    My experience is the total opposite. It's the little hood rats racing around in bangers with drain pipes for exhausts the epitome of bad driving and manners. As driving standards go in general, I think in the last ten years there's been a massive drop in common sense on the road.

    Mine's an auto, albeit double clutch as it's a hybrid. It takes a second to put it in park, which doesn't glare behind. I don't actually have a hand brake, at least not the traditional kind. It has a high level parking brake where the clutch pedal would be. I rarely use it when driving as putting it in P is perfectly useable.
