Top 10 hated road habits shows a change at the top

Driving on phone tops most annoying motorist habits

Talking or texting behind the wheel is not only illegal, it’s now the nation’s most hated driving habit according to new research .

Tailgating, previously the number one most hated habit among motorists when the study was last conducted in 2010, now takes second place, cited by 42% of drivers as their motoring pet hate. Failing to indicate (35%), dangerous over-taking (30%) and middle lane cruisers (26%) complete the top five.
