One-way streets often make driving difficult for those who are not familiar with the town.
I always go to work early to avoid the peak hours and to get a good place in the underground car park.

I almost hit a deer, but fortunately I was able to break in time.
I hate drivers who accelerate when I want to overtake them.
The number of accidents had gone down dramatically since they put traffic lights at the crossing next to our school.
I sometimes find even simple motorway junctions confusing, not to mention Birmingham's spaghetti junction.

It's really strange when somebody elbows their way to the door on the bus and does not get off at the next stop.
