I see most of this list every f'king day. Pisses me off.

Last night, a SUV driver in the left/passing lane wouldn't let me pass him (no one was in front of him). When he'd start falling behind the car that he was driving parallel with, I'd try to pass him on the right lane, but he'd speed up to keep parallel with the car. I managed to pass him when it became a three-lane road, but right before it became a single-lane, he cut everyone off using the shoulder and ran a red light. On the single-lane road, he started driving 30mph in a 45.

Epic rage bro! Had a '98 Mustang race up parallel to me last night on the way home from the movies and give me a "LET'S GO BRO!" look with his girlfriend in the passenger seat. When I politely declined by slowing for the right turn into KFC he gunned it and cut me off as closely as he could then kept on going down the road. Really showed me who was boss.

I was driving the family PT Cruiser at the time, with two passengers. derp.gif

WHICH REMINDS ME. I've got another one. This one super bugs me because of how often I end up driving up/down the state for long stretches of two-lane high-speed highway.

People who get mad because you passed them, speed up, cut you off, slow down, rinse and repeat. This is because when I'm going to be stuck on the 5 freeway for 6 hours...I'm using cruise control. I'm not being an asshole, I'm going the exact same speed now that I was several minutes ago when I passed you. If you slow down and I have to pull a maneuver to pass you and return to cruise, I'm gonna be mad because I already passed your slow ass earlier and now I'm wasting fuel. We're both gonna be here for several hours, why you gotta be a douche?

I'm just gonna re-state again how much I dislike cops...

Not all cops... just the ones on the road, particularly the ones that park their fat Harley two-wheelers behind a billboard and/or underneath a highway ramp, specifically to catch you in the act of going 10 mph over 60.

I get it that it's their job to be A-holes and collect a couple of thousand bucks worth of tickets quota every month for the old Jabba the Hutt looking Serg' back at the station, but... for RPD sakes man, go fscking do something productive like stuff your face with donuts~

Also, cops are like speed bumps... except historically speaking a lot more retarded. sly.gif

i got a few of the peeves mentioned here already but i have one that really pisses me off. people (currently on the highway) who give the gas before the merging point even starts in an attempt to pass you as you're trying to merge onto the highway.

i can understand if both cars are parallel when the merging lane is open that one has to give way. hopefully slow down to let me enter. its a matter of relative speeds and respect to others. however if they havent even gotten to the area where it opens up for merging and try to pass. seriously, you havent even entered a lane merging zone and you cant even bother to slow down or change lanes to let me enter safely censored2.gif nuts.gif at that point i usually hold the horn for a few seconds to show them my approval for that stunt.

I'm not really bothered by my passengers unless there is uncomfortable silence during the whole drive. I'm the type of person that enjoys a good conversation when I'm traveling with others.

Well I guess it bugs me when they find something funny on their phone and expect me to look at it.

Ah, on passengers. If you're riding along and are the only one who knows where we're going, I expect your directions to be precise and correct. If they are not, I will get very cross with you as it is clear I'm wasting my time.

As to Xiao's cop comment, here in California speed traps are illegal. A cop cannot hide and nail someone. They're perfectly in their right to be in plain sight and nail someone though. This is because California ruled that speed traps were revenue generators instead of safety enforcers. The more you know.

I'd rather choose a good nagging than an uncomfortable silence

"hey I think we gotta be on the 91"
"no man, 405"
"yeah dude it's the 405"
"we'll Fred 2 on 1 I vote 405 as well"



My directions are usually spot on, just that nobody believes me.. cool.gif


That said, i'm not a great driver in traffic, I'm even worse when people are talking to me. I cant do that. And yet oddly enough, if people are silent when im driving, I'll get upset..

Its a dangerous game I play.

Idk if it is here but most of the time cops would be sitting in their holden lights on and all waiting for a guy to speed. Sometimes they will be pitch black on a side street creeping...

So edgy.

I hate driving in traffic. It makes me sleepy for some reason. But I like watching cars weave in and out in a poor attempt to get somewhere faster.

I hate driving in traffic only because the majority of my cars have been manual. I've only ever owned three automatics (out of 7 cars), and both my parents' cars are manuals as well. Only my siblings have automatics.

That being said... all my post-1970 cars have at least had cruise control, so at least long drives weren't a major pain. I've owned three 1970 cars though, and I've driven all three up and down the state before so take that as you will. laugh2.gif

Woah, the more you know indeed! I have two buddies o' mine that are lawyers... I'm gonna invite 'em to some coffee, see if we can get anything remotely similar to eliminating speed-traps at least here in El Paso off the ground, because gosh darn it, right here it's like their pastime numero 2 to nail speeders on the freeway... pastime number one being speeding themselves~ >_<;

Rich ppl in European cars, Rednecks (wannabe as well) in pick-up trucks, and ppl with anger issues are the worst on the road. Why aren't the police going after them instead of normal ppl that drive the road like a good driver.

Unless you're a normal Japanese guy like xiao... man racial profiling at it's worst mang~ Just because I drive a black tinted Civic, with green neon underglows, live my life a Tokyo~drift at a time, say konichiwa every morning, pray to Kamisama, take of my shoes before walking in a room, have a last name that ends with Nakamura, eat short-grain rice with chopstix instead of burgers, watches Anime instead of movies, have a neko named Topgear, and bows to the 7-Eleven clerk after he sells me a pack of cigarettes... doesn't mean I'm a NINJA Bro!? I'm just a regular guy that enjoys playing Gran Turismo 2 in real life streets, takes every curve sideways (even when I'm walking), and knows how to build giant robots with nothing but tinfoil and a Gunpla marker... MAN, racial discrimination at it's worst!! I'm gonna go play some DDR down at La Jolla to vent all this profiling kakukakushikajika these dirty keisatsu give a samurai like me!! cool.gif

Civic owners get such a bad rep. dry.gif

I have a coworker with a Roush Mustang GT. Accidentally ran into him a couple days ago. Even though I was right behind him and waving, he was too occupied with pulling up next to V6 Mustang's and trying to start a five-second traffic light drag. Mustang's are so goddamn common that in the one minute of being behind him, he had "taken" over three V6 Mustang's, none of which showed any interest in participating in the shenanigans.

Can't complain too much though: with him ahead of me, traffic moved at a reasonable pace.

Not hating on the Mustang. I just don't like the interior of that generation.

Coming from a Mustang, she'd probably hate the RX8. From what I've read (from here, maybe), it requires a significantly different driving style.

Hm. I don't like it when people don't know how to merge onto the freeway.

I also don't like how it gets randomly slow around the areas where freeways merge or split. Only because those traffic jams usually have no right to exist. If you drive and pay attention to the signage, you should be able to quickly align yourself in the lane you need to be in and go on your merry way. None of this jerking yourself off in the car while you try to figure out which freeway to take garbage.

They know exactly which freeway to take. They just don't decide to be in the correct lane until the off ramp is 100 feet away.

A lot of LA traffic is caused by that and a lot of people do this.

That's infuriating. I make sure to be in my lane about a mile ahead of my maneuver.
