Recently, I was traveling in a heavy school/senior citizen home area which has a posted speed of 40 KM/H section and some idiot driving a patriot decided that the parking lane on the right was a passing lane and they were speeding pretty bad for that area as I saw them creeping up quick. I was almost out of the 40 zone and pushed the peddle abit so they could not pass and then when the two lane 50 zone opened up, then proceeded to go into the right lane to allow the idiot to pass in the left side... Gave them the bird as they drove by :/

Yeah that bassically happens to me about every day or every other day

That bugs me too. It seems that on every one of the few occasions that I am actually in a hurry I get stuck behind the slowpoke in the left lane. So no worries, right lane only when cruisin and if there is no right lane, I will try to make sure i at least run the limit...until a passing zone. Which brings me to...

I hate people that ride your a$$ then refuse to pass you when it is obviously safe (and logical) to do so.

When I'm in the right lane, coming up to a light that just turned red, clear lane in front of me, BLINKER ON, and the guy stopped three cars back in the middle lane decides the best time to hop to my nice clear lane I'm turning from... Is when I'm 10 feet away from his back bumper.... Freaking turds.

having other people on the road way. ESPECIALLY when I'm running BLUE LIGHTS AND SIREN to a bad crash, etc and the jack wagon in front slows down to the same speed as the vehicle to their right (or left).

People that pull into the middle left turn lane and cruise along until they either force themselves in or somebody lets them in.

People who stay in the left lane and back everyone up.

People who nearly run into my jeep

People who run red lights

People who cut me off especially!

No your Denali isn't going to fit in the 10 feet of space between me and the car infront of me (not at highway speeds... Just when going slow coming to a light or an accident or whatever is holding traffic up).

People who text and nearly run into me comin up to a light or something

Anyone who blinds me or rides my bumper at an unsafe speed... Especially people who do both at the same time!!!!

Anyone driving one of those tuner cars with the big exhaust things on them. I can't stand the sound of them.

Anyone who doesn't know how to drive when there is snow on the ground and slides out infront of me when coming to a stop.... Common sense people. Steep hills and hard pack snow/ice = slide....

Well I think that covers it!!!!

This is the very reason I developed a fear of stop lights when I was learning to drive a manual. Not only was I learning to drive a car for the first time, I had to drive with both feet. Some people just don't think.

People that do these things who then follow you when you give them the finger.

Even worse when they follow you but don't do anything when you're ready for them...

I hate when people speed up to block me off when I put on my blinker.

Even though you are driving over the speed limit does not mean you can drive in the left lane when the right lane is clear.

Blinkers are not offered as an option on cars (they come on all cars) and are not optional to use when changing lanes or turning.

Don't be mad at me when you change lanes in front of me without using your blinker and I toot my horn to let you know I am there. I will let you in.

Other rants have been covered.

When your driving at night and the oncoming car doesnt dim their lights.

I was driving to work one morning around 5am and the car didnt dim his lights so i flashed him once, so he dimmed and hit the brights again. so then i bright lighted him again, and then i just left them on. Lucky me it was a cop so he decided that he would pull me over stating "Sir i dont know why you had to keep bright lighting me when i dimmed my lights" which is B.S. "you know i can give you a ticket for that." So i dareingly asked him if i could give him one for the same thing. Luckily he laughed and let me go.

I especially hate this one. Where I live, overtaking a turning vehicle is entirely legal, whether on the shoulder or on the left. It drives me nuts when the person turning moves to the opposite side of the road to make a turn, as if they're driving a tractor trailer.

Other things that drive me nuts:

People that drive under the speed limit, then immediately decide they need to drive 10 over in a passing lane.

People who drive inconsistently, i.e. they'll do 5 over on straightaways, then slow down to 10 under in every corner. Just set your cruise control!

And a huge one around here, those who don't know how to use a flippin rotary. No, idiot, you're not supposed to go all the way around in the outside lane, stay in your own damn lane when in the rotary, and look before you enter it or next time I might just claim I couldn't slam on the brakes fast enough and pit maneuver you.

I can't stand when I'm driving through a parking lot in a designated lane and someone decides to cut through spaces and nearly hits you, then gives u a dirty look like you did something wrong.
