Car window litterers.

Particularly drivers who toss their lit fag ends out of the window while driving. Or their back seat passengers lobbing the McDonalds wrappers away whilst in motion

Laziness. Stupid cretins. Who do you think is going to pick your mess up, assuming the cars behind don't end up crashing due to your idiocy?

There should be a gov.uk website where we can report offenders. Then name and shame the drivers and flog the offenders in a public event.

Grrr

I'm all for folk keeping fit and enjoying the Welsh countryside but please adhere to the laws particularly as us drivers are paying for the roads, and show some awareness for other road users.

Grrrrr.


As someone who cycles to work daily I agree that selfish cyclists (and selfish road users in general) are a nightmare. In particular the types who dress up like they're in the Tour de France for a 5 mile ride to the office. Although my partner drives to work and she assures me that London drivers are far worse than London cyclists...

But I'll have to stop you there, road tax does not directly pay for roads, it goes into the purse for general government spending and they can spend it on whatever they like!

There is no such thing as a cyclist, or a car driver or a pedestrian. There are people. Some people are selfish, be they on a bike, in a car, or on foot.
