What irritates you when you drive, besides someone texting

Postby JrdnJstn » Wed Nov 06, 2013 1:56 am

Off of Black Friday topics but just thought I'd throw in something different. :D

I was driving down the expressway today, traveling about 75mph, this guy in front of me puts his brakes on and slows to a good 45mph (in the left lane) and decides he needs to get over 3 lanes because he is going to miss his exit. Mind you has to wait for a gap in between cars to get over.

I also don't understand why people speed up, in the left lane (not on expressway) to pass you, only to get in front of you and make a right hand turn in 5 seconds. They could have just gotten behind you (no one is ever behind me when this happens) and turned.
The biggest lie I tell myself is... "I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it."

Multitasking while driving doesn't bother me, as long as the person can do it. Sadly, 99.9% can't do it. They come to a crawl, swerve, etc. It's annoying.

I have a lead foot, and I hate people who drive in the left lane going slow. In a 55mph zone, I am going to typically run about 65mph. Regardless of the speed I or anyone else is going, if you're driving in the left lane and you see a vehicle coming behind you, move to the right lane to let them pass!!

I also cannot stand people who drive slow on back roads, where the speed limit is 55mph. You catch people going 40-45mph. It's annoying.

Also a majority of people do not know what YIELD means. Apparently they see the red sign and think it means STOP.

Also people who slam on their brakes for a yellow light. REALLY?

Finally, those kids who have a little Honda with a weed eater in the trunk and thinks they have something hot. They don't.

Someone pulling out in front of me like they are in a hurry and then go 5-10 mph UNDER the speed limit while I was doing 5-10 over when they pulled out. Then I have to wait to pass them because it is a country highway. The county I live in is awful for this especially on the main highway.

When I ride with my husband he inevitably gets stuck by every red light every trip. Otherwise, I wouldn't mind riding with him but it happens every time!

People that do 10mph below speed limit until you go to pass them and then they do 10 over.

When I am sitting waiting to turn onto a road and a car coming doesn't use their blinker and turns although they can clearly see me waiting.....USE YOUR BLINKER!!!!

Someone who drives 5 miles under the speed limit.....until you try to go around them and then they suddenly speed up to 10 miles over the limit just so you can't pass.

Elderly drivers that should have turned in their license 5 years ago. Enough said. My husband was almost killed by one so this one really bothers me.

People who think the fast lane is for speeding. The speed limit is the speed LIMIT no matter which lane you are in. On that same note though it is also not for people going under the limit.

People going slow on the highway. There is a posted minimum for a reason.

People who don't use their blinker.

Basically most of the idiots on the road who can't follow the basic road rules. Driving isn't exactly rocket science but 90% of people I see on the road must think it is because they sure don't know how to do it. Ooh don't get me started on this topic. lol

OH! and people who don't wave when I let them in front of me (goes for pedestrians not in a crosswalk too)! I just extended a courtesy the least you can do is acknowledge it.





feel free to picture a red faced jingleing Tinkerbell while reading that. :lol:
