10 driving behaviours that drive us crazy
MOTORISTS want other drivers to back off, after naming tailgating the most frustrating driver behaviour in RACQ's annual What Drives You Crazy? survey.
The RACQ survey asked members to rate the most annoying driver habits, with tailgating, incorrect use of indicators, aggressive behaviour and incorrect parking all featuring in the top 10.
RACQ's Senior Road Safety Advisor Joel Tucker said driving too close to other cars topped the list for the second year in a row and called for more courtesy to be shown on the roads.
"Tailgating is clearly an ongoing frustration for Queensland motorists," Mr Tucker said.
"Drivers who follow cars too closely are putting themselves and others in danger, as they increase the likelihood of a crash if they need to stop suddenly.
