Was checking to see what your driving pet peeve would be?

Mine are below.

People not using blinkers

Texters

Tail Gating

People going slow in fast lane,

People stopping when they see a cop having someone pulled over on side of road.

My list was about 2 miles long, finally had to tell myself, who cares...... At the end of the day, it's way to much stress for something that really doesn't matter.

People who use their blinkers like a magic wand- *POOF* Safe to change lanes or turn.
People who used their turn signal 4 miles ago, and never turned it off.
People.

I wish I could do that..Driving around and dealing with all the idiots is tough for me. People are the cause of most traffic, if everyone drove like me there would be no traffic.

I'll have to say, left lane hogs take the cake.

If everybody except me would get off the road, the world would be a better place.

I only use blinkers to tell you that I'm in the process of changing lanes
I will use them to turn into new roads, but on the interstate, they mean "look out"

Hypermiling is the practice of supposedly getting maximum gas milage out of your vehicle by driving only to conserve gas. No matter the conditions or traffic. They never maintain speed or observe and conform to traffic conditions they drive as if they are the only ones on the road. Getting behind one is a real justification for equipping a car with an RPG and a flame thrower.

million frustrations while driving. but the ones that get me reved up are, left lane blockers, the ones sitting at a yield sign requiring a 3/4 mile gap before they'll pull into traffic, and the ones that don't know how to share (take the opposite side) those little medians on divided roads.

People who are looking at their phone and miss the left turn signal at the light and then take off through the yellow leaving you to have to wait through another light cycle. I am glad I have a loud horn to assist them in regaining their attention! What really gets me are those who will just sit there and watch it happen without honking.

This...

And those people who purposely drive past you in the "right hand turn only" lane, and then expect the people who have patiently waited in line to let them back over into the thru lane.

Don't try that with me...it ain't happening.

Some dude in a beard driving a Subaru with a bunch of liberal stickers on the back....I guess if he's not slowing me down it doesn't really affect me but I still want to reach in the car and slap him.

Seeing feet on the dash or hanging out the window. Get your fat Twinkie toes on the floor board where they belong.

People who through pure stupid carelessness and disregard for other drivers, cause deadly wrecks that cripple, maim, or kill innocent people.

Have you ever noticed that it's usually a "large" woman in a minivan ?

Agreed! Typically with a monogram sticker of their initials on the back window. Drives me nuts.
