Whether it’s sitting for hours in traffic, battling to reach a petrol station before running out of fuel, or singing your heart out to what’s on the radio – driving can be a weird and wonderful thing. As driving enthusiasts, we’ve taken the handbrake off and delved into the funny oddities that anybody that’s sat behind a wheel can relate to (after checking our mirrors of course!).

Through a series of graphs and illustrations we have explored the peculiar behaviours and thoughts that can occur when you hit the road; from seemingly always getting stuck at a traffic light just as it turns red, to how other road users slow to a snail’s pace when you’re running late. And although we would always advocate following the rules of the road to the letter – some situations seemed too prevalent not to comment on!

So take a look at the illustrations below to see which of the following situations you relate to most!
