Builders stopping traffic

Does this annoy anyone else?? What gives them the right to step out on the road & hold traffic while a big truck backs out & holds the whole place up??
 
Last time I checked the rules of the road, the only people who can stop traffic are Police, school crossing warde & a person in control of animals!!

    It doesn't bother me if they are doing for a minute or so.  Live and let live I say, they are only trying to do their job. 

    The road I live on it getting dug up a lot in the last year and the future and they keep putting on temporary lights that are stuck on red at both ends - that is annoying!

    It's preferable to a Transit van smashing the ar5e out of your car though.

    You forgot to add drunk people to your original list as well, mate.

    As above was delayed going to a meeting and the ensuing mayhem from the Truck coming out caused delays!!
     
    It just annoys me in general, especially if the truck/machine etc ends up in front of me!!

    The country road I use to get to work, I got stuck behind a portable toilet truck this morning.  I didn't get stressed and he pulled over after a couple of miles to let me past.  I wish more drivers had that consideration.  It only took him a minute to pull over and let people past, everyone is a winner.

    I agree, but unfortunately that type of consideration is rare. Then again I am the world's most impatient driver!!!!

    What would you suggest they do?

    You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

    If it was for an hour I would be pretty angry..

    If it was for a few minutes to allow a truck to exit safely and to ensure the site access/egress is safe - then I wouldnt really be overly bothered..

    Better than the truck reversing blindly and wiping a car out..the you would be seriously delayed.

    All sounds a bit NIMBY for my liking.

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    It doesn't bother me if only for a few mins, they have a job to do like the rest of us after all.  They usually wave "thanks" anyway.

    Haha genius. Seems a shame he's such a sap in DC as i really liked that american football film he was in.

    Plus it had Foo Figters - My Hero in a quality choice of soundtrack moment (tm)

    so how are they supposed to do their jobs then?  at least think before you rant about something.  maybe you can sugget another way of getting a large wagon into a tight site? 

    people act like real idiots, getting so angry about being delayed for a few seconds while a wagon is reversed in or out of site.  Its ridiculous.  Stop thinking that you are more important than everyone esle, and realise that people have jobs to do.

    stopping traffic is the only option, otherwise people continue like idiots trying to drive behind wagons that are reversing, risking accidents and running people over even when its bloody obvious whats going on, just so they dont have to stop for 20 seconds.

    stop being so stupid

    and i word of advice, if you sit revving your engine, or shouting and swearing, getting as close as you can, then you will often find it takes alot longer for the wagon to perform his manouver, not because it cant be done quicker, but purely out of childish fun
