The thing that bugs me about matrix signs is the warning that says,

"Road closed after A6241"

Fine if its a local road and know where they are talking about, but when you are travelling long distances what is one supposed to do? Pull up on the hard shoulder and consult an atlas.

last time I saw a message like this on the A1, the road closure was some 90 miles further north.

More seriously though, the thing that does really annoy me are trucks that pull out on a dual carriageway to overtake another truck and then take miles to get past them at a slow speed. This causes a domino effect for following vehicles that end up nose to tail for miles back and must be the cause of many traffic snarl ups. It's not so bad on motorways because there is a third lane but on a dual carriageway it is a really bad habit and simply bad driving by truck drivers.



It's called the caterpillar effect. Also caused by someone suddenly braking. It can cause a traffic jam and hour or more later. How often have you got to the end of a slow section and there's been nothing there leaving you thinking wtf? That's possibly why.
