Angry What are your driving pet peeves?

Mine are people who take at least five minutes to pass a car on the highway. people who talk and drive, slow people who don't change to the right lane after passing a slower driver.

That's all for now!

Let's see what you guys got!

1....2....3....BEGIN!

Camry Drivers and basically anyone else driving a Toyota

Nissan Skyline drivers - they're all ********s in shit cars, very few are ACTUALLY fast

WRX drivers - just becasue you have a $45k car with Turbo and AWD doesn't mean you own the road mate. My $27k Focus will own you round a corner.

People who think they're the only drivers on the road, ignore their mirrors and don't respect the speed limits

People who only got a licence after trying 600 times then believe they can suddenly drive. The fact it took you 600 attempts means you should be on the bus.

Those who don't respect the most sacred mantra of all - Driving is a privilege, not a right.

mine are people who all of a sudden go right in front of you when they really dont have enough room to change lanes and then make you brake all of a sudden.

changing lanes without signaling, drivers who move into your lane without even looking. Drivers who leave their brights on, cops who follow you just because of the look of your car. cops who pull you over just to harrass you because of your car. Cops who turn thier lights on just to get passed a red light.

Hmm let's see:
1. People that pull out in front of you and then begin to drive really really slow.
2. They won't pass and continue to ride your ass all the way down the road.
3. Stopping for no reason at all.
4. Jeep Grand Cherokee drivers (lol...my mom just got one)
5. Those big old jacked up pickup trucks that have 3 sets of lights on them and they ride behind you and you can't see.

Cops. lazy bastards have nothing better to do than harrass young male drivers simply because they're young, and male.

I'm really not picky, I just hate all drivers. I probably have the worst road rage of anyone I know. I really can't stand it thougth when someone pulls out in front of me, then drives slow as hell, and then turns without a signal and at the last minute stomps on the brake. But as I said before, I really don't like anyone else on the road. And I have a special disgust for tractor trailer drivers, who should not even be on the road in the first place.

I agree w/ all of Ashley's except # 4 . One I have to add and is when people who are drving something like a lincoln, lexus, bmw, and don't use their turn signals, like they are too good to flip the switch on it. My theory is that they aren't equipped w/ signals. Only the economy and middle class vehicles have them . Also is it just me, but I never had a problem with people riding my ass so bad till I got the foci. Don't know if I just notice it more since the tail end is round, or maybe they take advantage of the tail end being round and think they can ride a lil closer. That and the turn signals have to be my biggest two though

Also, dave is right. I don't have much of a problem now once i'm older. When I was 16-21 is when I got most of my tickets and would pull me over for bull s**t reasons. It would almost always be a rookie cop too.

I have 2 major pet peeves when driving and I'm noticing them more and more now since I got the Focus. #1 is people cutting me off......I consider cutting me off when you yip it in front of me and I have to slam on my brakes! #2 is riding my ass so close you couldn't fit a tricycle between the two of us. These 2 things rarely happened to me when I had my truck....F150 with a 9 1/2" lift sittin on 35's. I used to slam my brakes when people rode my ass in the truck, but now I'm afraid to because I'll probably total the Focus.
