What Gives You Road Rage?

Or...at least pisses you off while you're driving.

I hate it when I'm coming down an entrance ramp to the freeway and I get behind some moron on the ramp who won't go over 35 until he's trying to merge. It takes a while for my Jeep to get from 35 to the 65 or 70 the rest of the traffic is going. Sheesh. Get up to speed before you get to the end of the ramp you idiot.

I drive around 100 miles a day for work and I am ashamed to admit but I have a long list.

Included in my list but not limited to.....
-People who think it is safe to try and merge onto the highway going around 35mph as you mentioned above.
-People that make a rt turn on red into the lane you are traveling making you slam on your brakes so you dont drive over them
-People that stay in and cruise in the fast lane when there are not any cars in the lane to their rt or go the same speed as the car to the rt of them.
-People that dont signal before turning
-People that ride your arse and when you move over to let them by they either stay in their lane and dont pass or get behind you again
-People that dont understand the concept of how you alternate traffic at stop signs
-People that drive in breakdown lanes in heavy traffic.
-People that pull into merging merging on ramp lanes just to pass a few cars and merge back into the original lane they were in.
-People that wait last minute to get into an exiting lane or out of the exiting lane and expect to be let in when they had plenty of time/room if they had done it earlier.
-People that get in the wrong lane at intersections and want to turn.
-People that cant park for *crap*. Either they cant pull in between the lines, park on your bumper when parallel parking, or park way to close so you cant open your door
-People that slam on their brakes for yellow stop lights
-People that speed up to get in front of you and once they do they go slower than you were going originally.
-People that double park on the side of the road so the entire lane is escentially blocked.
-People that do not pull to the left when waiting to make a lft turn so they block all traffic behind them instead of leaving room to pass.
-J walkers especially when they take their sweet arse time crossing

Thats just a few off the top of my head. I know I need some type of anger management or medication.

Other drivers make me wanna --->

Well alrighty then. that outta just about wrap it up!

You forgot one though and this happened to me today. Speed limit is 60. Cruise set at 62 driving in second lane over. Closing in on car in same lane doing about 58. Change lanes to next lane to right. Car doing 58 speeds up to match my speed, then accelerates to about 65. I change lanes back behind them and

Pretty much anything that wrong that happens while someone is on a cell phone. Seriously, something like not using a turn signal may not be a big deal to me, but fail to use your turn signal because your 'free hand' is holding a cell phone up to your ear and I'm pissed. Hang it up ***hole.

***

Lastly (for now), bikers piss me off. No, I'm not talking about the leather clad crowd, I'm talking about the spandex clad, riding three wide up a hill douchebags.

Agree with the ***hole crotch rocket people as well. How often I see them in spring/summer weaving in and out of traffic at insane speeds (sometimes with someone holding onto them as a passenger, or doing moronic crap like wheelies down the middle of the highway at 80 mph.

Actually, when I said Spandex I meant the 10 speed pedal bikes who ride three ride in lines of 20 and hold up traffic. The crotch rocket Power Rangers don't bother me as much. They at least get out of my way. Darwin takes care of the irritating ones.

I'm usually pretty even-keeled, but there is one thing that really gets my goat when driving. We've all been there......there is a 4 lane road, 2 lanes going each way. There is road construction coming up in the lanes in which you are currently driving. The reason you KNOW there is road construction coming up is because there is a SIGN that announces it, and that the road on which you are traveling will quickly become a 1 lane road. However, NO ONE wants to merge until the last minute, when everyone is at a standstill. They'll go AS FAR as they can in the lane they're in, and then EXPECT you to let them merge into your lane when they can't go any further. This is about the only time when I'm a d!ck when behind the wheel. These people NEVER get allowed to merge near me when this situation plays out because I'll do just about anything to not let it happen. Play nicely people, and I'm a great friend. Step on my toes and I'll stomp on yours.

In situations like that I usually pull in the middle of both lanes so people cant pass me on either side. Quite often the person behind me in the correct lane gets the idea and plays along esp if its a tractor trailer. Yeah Im that guy.

I'm the ***hole that moves into the correct lane when the signs say to merge and then doesn't let the car flying up on my left (the lane that is about to close and has the big orange barrels forcing the vehicles to merge right) merge in at the last second. It was pretty funny last time...I had a semi on my right and a car in front of me. I did not have a yield sign, thus I was breaking no laws by maintaining my current lane and following the flow of traffic. A car decided that they would wait until the last second by flying past all the vehicles who followed the construction signs, put their turn signal on and then expected me to move over and let them without forcing them to even slow down. I didn't. They slammed into the construction barrels while laying on the horn and locking up their brakes. I continued driving.

I had a cb radio in my truck at that time and the semi next to me got on there cracking up laughing and congratulated me for not letting the dumbass in...lol

people are already going 5 mph under the speed limit and hit the brakes cuz they see a cop. or will line up behind a cop going 5 mph under the speed limit too affraid to go by him at the speed limit on a 4 lane road, do they think they'll get a ticket for going the speed limit?????

people that will sit at the line and not pull forward while turning left, thus not even getting through the intersection till the next arrow.

i call it the L block, one guy in front of me going too slow, and one guy next to me doing the same thing, and i'm stuck.
