Driving pet-peeves...
#1
It aggravates me when in just typical driving situations I encounter an idiot driver who should never be on the road. Here are a few examples of what really gets me agitated:

1) When a driver on a busy two-lane comes to a COMPLETE stop in the continuous traffic lane to allow a person at a stop sign on a side street to enter traffic. This is dangerous to every driver around. Misguided courtesy can still be a bad thing.

2) When a driver in front of me is turning right on a continuous turn, and has thier OWN LANE, yet comes to a complete stop to watch for merging traffic. This tends to back up traffic for 20 cars or so unnecessarily.

3) Those that won't make a left turn on an unprotected left because they don't have the dedicated arrow, even though there is plenty of room and time to make the turn. I'm talking about where left turns across oncoming traffic is allowed with caution on a green light, where there is also a green arrow.

I'm sure there are plenty that get to some of you too...

For me - almost any drivers in Dallas or Houston Texas. I am suprised road rage there doesn't drop the population count by at least 20% / year!

Your peeve #2 is a big one here in OKC.

For me, it's:

1 people who feel the need to come to a near complete stop when turning into a parking lot.

2 people who drive the speed limit in the passing lane

3 people who pass you, then slow down.

4 people who speed up as you are passing them

5 people who don't know squat about round-a-bouts.

How about getting behind an idiot in a new car, on a 2-lane road, that is driving 15 mph under the speed limit and weaving all over the road, while they are trying to figure out how the radio or AC works?

1) Going down the interstate merging ramp and the driver stops at the bottom!
2) Anyone that is texting, you can always tell as they speed up and slow down. Sometimes they weave around in the lane.
3) Guy/gal in the passing lane that his cruise control set 0.1 mph faster than the guy in the righthand lane.
4) Crappy Cutlass, Caprice, Regals with tires and rims that are 5X more expensive than the car itself.
5) Guy that has to speed in front of you only to exit across three lanes of traffic without signalling.
6) Anyone playing their music so loud that I can hear it driving down the interstate with my windows closed.

You nailed it for me CZ..lol..I have the most issues with that...Specialy here in WA. Idiots drive in the passing lane going slower alot than the speed limit..I watch cops just ignor it while people are piled up on them..I really wish our cops would crack down on that like in Oregon...In Oregon you will get hit with a ticket real fast for driving in the passing lane for no good reason..lol..I started not driving on the freeway here cause of that..I rather take the old highway and back roads...Cause i noticed how pissed and stressed i would get by the idiot drivers "plus if they hit me i rather it be 50mph instead of 70"

I use to say we got the worst drivers in the world in my area "as a joke" My brother is a truck driver and goes coast to coast and logged over 3 million miles..He said you are not far off..the worst ones he runs into is right here in good ol Washington state..lol..But i know, idiots on the roads are everywere Wink

1. Failure to dim lights... coming at you.
2. Failure to dim headlights behind you with added rage bonus points for dimming to oncoming traffic then returning to brights.
3. Idiot in jacked up 4WD who does dim only to have the factory "fog / driving" lights come on and blind you.
4. Multiple car passing from behind me when I'm pulling out to pass. (Happens a lot in farm country when the tractors are out)
5. Jacksticks that feel it is far better to have a head-on collision than to straddle an animal carcass.
6. The "bobber" 4 cars back that constantly weaves in and out looking for the moment to pass despite the fact that it's hill country and there will be no such moment for miles.
7. Cruise control races on the dual lane.
8. That awkward moment on a dual lane when the person behind you catches up from a long way away, pulls out to pass, then rides along beside you for no apparent reason. (WTF?)
9. Tailgaters, sort of bother me, but because I can screw with them, it relieves some of the stress.

The person that you pull out in front of with plenty of time to do so who sees you then speeds up to close the gap then rides your tail.

I usually drive slower then pull over to let them have that ONE car length that meant so much to them.
