Left lane/passing lane drivers.
Wow these people really piss me off. Plodding along while everyone passes them on the right. They are stupid, clueless or don’t care. They drive 5 or 10 miles in the left lane/passing lane because they are going to turn left 5 or 10 miles down the road. I blew my horn at one guy and told him to get over and he said, “I’m fixin’ to turn left up here,” in a southern/red neck twang. So you hold up traffic because YOU don’t want to do what’s right or inconvenience yourself? So to hell with everyone else.
I guess some of these people on the highway that never leave the left lane/passing lane think it is a constitutional right. They just never leave the passing lane. It is called a passing lane for a reason to pass not ride 500 miles there. Then there are the geniuses that call it a “fast lane.” Sorry but it is a passing lane in all 50 states.
Getting on the highway.
Most places highway speed is 70 mph. When entering the highway you go up the ramp at a speed close to 70 like 55 or 60 and then as you see traffic coming you can speed up, not stop or brake, but speed up and blend in with the traffic. You don’t go up the ramp at 35 or 40 unless traffic is backed up or the weather is bad. i.e. snow or heavy rain etc.
Then more than once I have come up the entrance ramp and there is some dumb ass riding in the right lane and won’t move over for nothing, I assume because he is going to get off in the next couple exits. Then can be the only one in three or four lanes of highway and they are not going to move no matter what. So they would rather cause an accident than move over and move back when he passes you.
Driving with your flashers on.
Sometimes you run into a driving rainstorm that you can barely see ahead and then you run up on SOMETHING with flashing lights. Then you find out it is some moron that can’t see and is driving 15 or 20 mph with those flashers on. As you approach you don’t know if it is an accident or what. To start with those flashers aren’t meant to drive with and are illegal to drive with yet people do it all the time. Here is my suggestion: if you can’t see GET THE HELL OFF THE ROAD.
They also use these emergency flashers when going slow for whatever reason, like towing something or other.
Stopping in the road.
Wow these people are real geniuses. You are driving along and the person in front or a car or two in front of you decides to stop and let someone out onto the road from a side street and you are suppose to guess what the hell they are doing. This is alright if you are in bumper to bumper traffic that is stop and go but to just arbitrarily stop is insane.
Once I was going down a two lane road and there is almost NO traffic and here is this woman stopped dead in my lane and is out of her car SAVING a turtle. I blow the horn and she cusses at me. Apparently she didn’t think she would cause an accident or get herself killed but she had to save that turtle.
Morons on cell phones and driving.
EVERY state should have a law against this. People can’t drive when they are suppose to be paying attention and then you add a cell phone and you turn a moron into a brain dead imbecile. Cell phones are a real convenience but they are abused and should be banned from use while driving. What the hell is so important that you need to talk about while driving. I see people in my neighborhood that are just leaving home and on the phone, come on you are leaving home. Talk before you leave. Or they are coming home and just a few blocks from home but have to be talking. Talk when you get home.
Once in a while when my kids were in school and I would pick them up at school I would see some parent pull in talking on the phone. The kid would come out and the parent wouldn’t stop talking and was still talking as they drove away. How about talking to your kid, show some interest how their day went etc.
Drivers not using turn signals to turn or change lanes.
What does it take to flip that lever and turn on a turn signal? Then there are some that turn it on as they go around the corner. Most states you are suppose to use it 100 feet before the turn. The same with changing lanes. You need to do this before the lane change not as you are changing lanes and are between both lanes. Or you cut someone off to change lanes and turn on the turn signal and that makes it right. Courtesy doesn’t cost anything.
Use those headlights when dark, in the fog or rain.
Here in Florida there is a law to use headlights when in the rain. Most use them but there are plenty that don’t. Why? I guess they are stupid or don’t care and it is almost always drivers with a color car that is hard to see like gray, black or some other dark color.
Then there is using headlights when it gets dark. Again here in Florida the law is turn the headlights on when the sun sets. That means when it has gone below the horizon but it is STILL LIGHT OUT. HELLO!! Turn on those headlights. Dusk is the hardest time of the day to see.
Lastly the fog. A lot of people don’t turn any lights on in the fog. In all three of these scenarios there are people that use PARKING LIGHTS. Not sure what the story is here whether they are trying to save electricity or what? The law says you must use headlights when required not PARKING LIGHTS. HELLO!!!
I really get pissed about this too. I am not sure what the purpose of tailgating is especially when in a long line of traffic. Do you think you will get there faster? Here is my limit. When they are so close I can’t see their headlights then they are too damn close. The problem is these morons won’t take a hint if you brake check them. They also don’t know it is their fault for rear ending you. There is no excuse for this especially when in traffic and there is no place to go. AND YOU ARE NOT GETTING THERE ANY FASTER.
They can’t park either.
Lets see they park on an angle in a perpendicular parking spot and just leave it. OR they park on the line between spaces and just leave it. And how about the moron that parks really close to you and of course just leaves it. I guess if they can’t drive what makes me think they can park? And speaking of parking, how about idiots that fly through a parking lot like no one is walking or no one might pull out or back out of a spot. Like they are the only one on the planet.
