I've tried to rationalize why some road abuses are worse than others, but my annoyance at particular groups is usually down to selfish reasons:

When I'm cycling, I aim more scorn at the car (van/bus/lorry/taxi) drivers because of the extra protection they get. Not just from accidents, but from the weather - whenever someone's stupidity/lapse in judgement causes someone else to be delayed, at least the driver gets a warm, dry chair while they're waiting for the lights. The pedestrians I can make allowances for, and when another cyclist is doing something wrong, it usually results in them not being in my way.

When I'm on foot, it's the inconsiderate cyclists that bother me most, because motorists don't tend to use the pavement. But I dislike the other pedestrians too, because I'm quite a fast walker (and occasionally personal space comes into it).
