Angry lack of respect!

im sure every body deals with this somtimes. but in my focus people will, 1 cut me off, 2 pull out in front of me and go very slow, 3 pull out way to late in front of me. and today i was driving on back two lane highways. i came up on a redneck in a 99 ram doing 45 in a 55 so i went to pass and he drifted into my passing lane i guess he was trying to block the pass so i down shifted into 2nd and blew by. but thats not the worst part as i went by i looked up to flip the finger and the dude was getting a kick out of the whole thing! so i had to come ask anyone if they run into these kinda things.

These things do happen. I have just recently noticed a lot of people going too slow on the freeway anyway. It's pretty sad really.

In New Jersey the right lane has become the passing lane.

Try driving one of the slowest pickup trucks known to man. I get that stuff all the time, every time I drive that thing. People can't stand being stuck behind it. The really frustrating thing is, when I try to move right to let some guy who wants to go 80 in a 35 zone past me, he's already moving to the right to go around me! Sheesh! Give me a second or two to freakin' react! And pass on the left! That's the law dammit.

^^ Yeah, what I was thinking of when I said that, was a three-lane road, with me in the middle. You've had that experience, right? You're moving along in the middle of three lanes, fair amount of traffic in each lane, and some idiot comes up behind you at like twice the limit, so you go to move to the right to get out of their way, and just as you start to go, you realize you're about to sideswipe them because they're already in the process of passing you on the right?

My favorite is being in the middle of a a 4 or 5 lane highway in the middle of the night, with no traffic and some guy runs up on your tail flashes his brights ans stays behind you for miles. Those kind of people I never move for. If you are in such a hurry you should be paying attention to the road and go around me. There are no cars and you had plenty of time to plan on changing lanes.

I was on I75 a two lane on-ramp behind this idiot in a malibu who kept braking for no f---ing reason.Next to me is a 92-95 f150 who was also behind a cement truck. So finally I got tired of the malibu and honked my horn a couple of times, just so happens that at that moment the f150 was starting to merge over to my lane without a turn signal. I guess he thought he had enough room which he didn't. No big deal right,wrong he finally catches up to me and gives me the finger. I was like WTF so I catch up to him and my wife and I both give him the finger..So I'ts not so unusual as you think.

I have noticed this as well. I just picked up my focus a few months ago, absolutly fell in love with driving it. I mean..I don't even turn on the radio, I just drive. Car, Me, engine, and clutch. This is the first car I have ever owned that has made every day a "driving experience" for me. It frustrates the heck out of me when the non-drivers (majority) are on their cell phone talking, make-up putting-on, day dreaming state of mindlessness droid driving. I long and anticipate the back roads, open highway's, and times when it's just me and the car. F-This I'm going for a ride....
