Things that have bothered you for a long time.

People named Andrew who call themselves Drew. Stop it, it's very annoying.
Try to avoid Italy Drago.

Unless I have it wrong, the Italian for Andrew is Andrea.

That's right - ending in A.

Very confusing for Brits

Avoid Italian blind dates Drago.

Unless you are that way (holiday) inclined.

When you watch police chase type programmes on the telly, and they start following people who are doing 80mph on the motorway, why do they wait until they're doing a ton plus before they pull them? Why not switch the blue lights and sirens on as soon as they're speeding? A cynic might think it's because there's a bigger fine or a ban at 100mph or over.
 
No they don't. But in some cases they could stop them.
I suspect then they'd get a lawyer saying the driver wasn't aware they were speeding because it was only just over the limit, and they'd get off with a slap on the wrist.

That's a guess though. There are long stretches of Autobahn here with no limit whatsoever: you can imagine the carnage when one petrolhead clips a barrier...
