What annoys you most in 2014?

Potholes, drivers paying more attention to their Facebook news feed than the road, bus lane regulations. What, as a biker, annoys you most in 2014? Vote for your biggest annoyance below, and don't forget to have a good moan about it in the comments section at the bottom.

Petrol Stations

If I have to take my helmet off I will never return to that petrol station! Simple!

niggles

Sports bike riders wobbling through the bends, holding everyone up, then blasting past on the straights.

Farmer's Mud

 I ticked potholes, but living in the countryside there is nothing worse than riding at night in the rain and suddenly finding the corner you are approaching has 1/2" mud across it. I have overtaken a car before and then found i couldn't rejoin my side of the road because of 6" boulders of muck tossed off a tractor tyre and had to slow and pull back behind the car. That and it totally mucks up your bike and leathers.

Farm Vehicles

Came round the corner this morning on usual country road commute and a tractor had broken down the night previously and dumped its engine oil all over the road.

Attempting to mop it up with mud from the verge is not sufficient Mr Farmer!!!

Fortunately missed crashing but lethally dangerous. Any other site and there is a responsibility to clean the road surface from vehicles going in and out of muddy land. But not farmers. They are a law unto themselves and are totally thoughtless.

Hmmmmm , I sell a rat.

The only option with an opinion  ( "they're lethal" )  and a photo is the pothole option which is clearly going to influence peoples descision .

As someone who lives in a rural are I'd like to cast a vote for farm machinery on the road , I apreciate that it's a busy time for farmers at the moment BUT that doesn't excuse the irratic and downright dangrous driving I've encountered on my local roads recently .

all of the above and

 farmers leaving Mud.....but my biggest gripe is about  the everdecreasing levels of observation, Politeness and downriite laziness shown by so many Drivers........ Drivers changing lane, Pulling out, not indicating, not looking in Mirrors, not looking where they are going, Texting, using Phones, reading Books, chucking rubbish out of the window  ...the list is long.
